I'm sure you were all good in '05 and Santa did you well.

Personally, I had planned on some weight loss for the '57, but nothing for the Camaro. Then, my boss arranged a little "attaboy" for me, not a whole lot (especially after the government got their mitts on it), but enough to get me thinking. Then, I end up working some overtime during the normal holiday shutdown, so that will add to the attaboy.

So, I'm thinking a new solid cam for the '57. Have wanted to do this for a couple of years, had one picked out but now will probably go one step higher (Comp XS282S).

If there's enough left over, perhaps a console Megashifter for the Camaro. My son may race it in '06.

So, what're your plans?

Well w/ two cars now I am at a middle ground on which I really want to tear into. The TA needs intake/headers... I got the headers ready to put on, but am too damn lazy. W/ the SS I want to do headers and bolt ons this year, then see what I decide later... Who knows. Might sell the TA, buy a beater, and then spend the rest for cam etc for the SS...

The TA needs to be sold dood. What's a 23 yr old need with a car payment AND another 1/2 junk car to burn up money on?

Mine's got a Racetronix pump kit, bilsteins and a line lock on the way this winter.

Triple threat car...street/strip/track....that's always been my goal.

Besides, they can't hurt the launch any more than the stock 73,000 mile DeCarbons :lol:

Why not? Its not gonna hurt to race. Suspension will help w/ the launch etc, but its not gonna be a problem to run before then...

Nothing too big for 2006. Maybe try a different intake and I need a better converter.

Progress report

I found a used Megashifter, need to get the microswitches for it. So, 1 down.

Will probably be ordering the cam and a damper for the 396 in the next week or so. I'm going to try to work out a deal on new slicks with the tire stores locally.
