My wife kicks ass!

I guess im pretty easily snowed over by those around me lol!! But i couldnt be happier with my surprise.

Let me explain a little bit of the background story here first...

Going back a couple weeks ago, i had tuned another Camaro just like mine at West Bend Dyno and Brad started asking me suggestions as to what to do for a cam in one of these cars seeing that the new owner was looking to install one. So i suggested the cam ive had my eye on for my own car! A week goes by and i never thought anything more about it. Till my buddy Joe starts quizzing me on cams again because his buddy in las vegas supposedly has a 2010 Camaro too and wanted a cam and exhaust etc...

So we chatted about it and the story started to build up to the point that the car was going to be shipped out here for me to do the work on it. So flip the pages ahead to last night. Joe apparently had ordered all the parts for this car from vegas and went to the dyno to pick them up along with some components i needed to make a clutch repair on a C6 i was working on last night. So he puts the parts in my saturn and I didnt even guess anything beyond that.

Later i get home and notice a card on the kitchen counter from the wife... Oh boy what now!?! So i read it, and at the last part of the card says "The parts are yours by the way" So i promptly begin to look around the kitchen looking for parts lol... Well come to find out, these three characters had snowed me over the whole time and the parts really are for my car!!!

NOW i have a cam, springs and pushrods to isntall and dyno tune it before automation!! Time to see just how close to the 500RWHP i can get this thing N/A now!!!!!!!!!

Just thought it was kind of a cool story to share with everyone since this is the first time anyone ever went to this kinda length to get me car parts before as a gift!


This is a new LSR grind, Comp Cam specifically for rectangle port heads: .617/.624 - 231/247 113LSA
