I will tell you one thing. He was not lying about how smooth the Camaro is at 140. I personally got up to 145 with my nephew about a month ago and dam it was smooth.

i know right! all you need is a different cam to help get more top speed!

headers, cam, ported heads/intake manifold/TB, exhaust, and cold air intake, maybe some suspension/chassis stuff... no forced induction, and i bet the Camaro can reach 190 or even 200! and your still cheaper than a GT500 probably more horsepower too!
