Camaro found a new home. Now to play with the Mustang.

She was good to me but have to move on. Sad to see her leave!

Afraid I won't be able (and willing) to get out of the stang what I got out of the Camaro. I want to keep it streetable and a nice car. Camaro had no AC, heater, PS or even a radio. But it was an awfully clean car that would go!

Not sure yet. This is such a nice idling, quiet, smoooth engine. Almost anything you do takes away from that. Maybe some light weight components. I may remove the Control Motion plates. It just isn't ever going to get as fast as the Camaro with such a small engine. I would like to see a 12 some day but that's about it. All it would take is a converter. But then I would need tires and wheels. Never ends...

Put a supercharger on it! They make great power with low boost.

Superchrger would be fun! They are so expensive though. Could buy one for less than $3K for a 5.0 but over $5K for our 06s.
