You would want the LT's to get the gains out of the camaro. Doing camaro before full bolts is a waste really.

+1 you do not NEED LT's for the cams but they will get you more power than the shortys, and are all around better except for price

Unless you can install the shorties your self don't buy them, it will cost more to have them installed then you payed for the part plus you don't gain that much over the stock. And if you want a cam go look on YouTube, you nearly 3k or more including install and parts all your Gina gain is 30hp or something like that. Save your money on both

Re: cam?

Skip the LTs and get a OR X. Alot of people have been seeing the same gain from a OR X.

Truth is skip cams and just do a blower. Cams are not worth the money spent on cost for them then install.

I dont think an or x can come close to the gains of longtubes

LOL...haha..but for real looking at 1500 for came then another 1000-1500 for install. About 1500-2000 more can get a full kit paxton. For 3800 can get a tuner kit.

Agree totally.

I've really been debating getting one. Im gonna have to to switch back and fourth between the catted mid pipe and tune and the OR tune and mid pipe for inspection purposes. The gains seem to be worth the extra effort.

Get a supercharger first then do heads, cams and forged internals.
Mine is in the shop right now for the internals.

At that point why not just have the engine built by a professional builder. You can get 700 N/A from a good builder. And unless your racing semi pro or higher u don't need more than that for the street.

Do you know what it takes to get 700hp n/a?

Surely he is meaning crank because i dont think that is possible without a complete motor swap and even then its pushing it...now with fi its a different story but u would be hard pressed to get that without a tt and maybe even a little n/o

---------- Post added at 09:53 PM ---------- Previous post was at 09:50 PM ----------

At that point you would still need to completly build your car to hand the power...engine/tranny/driveshaft/ the list goes on and on

Well your already all talking about forged internals, heads, cams. That's pretty much an engine swap without a new block. And if you do all of that with a blower like the one guy said in this thread you'll be pushing around 800-1000 bhp.

The main component would be domed high compression pistons. I'm talking 13:1 maybe 14:1 to start. I don't know the whole build off the top of my head but I can put you in touch with my builder who can.

Running that high of compression on regular gas will not end well.
