I'm going to purchase a convertable in april of 2011. I just need a little help with the engine difference of the V8's that are offered.
First just a little background.
I bought a BMW S1000rr in the spring and managed a 9.6 sec qtr mile time in the summer. Absolutly loved it. Everytime I hoped on it was an adrenaline rush.This bike set the fastest qtr mile time far a production bike...yes faster then the busa or ZX-14 Unfortunately I was in an accident and ended up with a paralized left arm. Well now I'm in the market for a new ride and the new Camaro is the car I will be buying.
So I've been a stick shift guy all my life but unfortunatly due to my injury I'm forced to my only option of getting the automatic. Now from what I see that means less horsepower compared to the manual. Just wondering from what I can see is this a positve or a negative.
Any info u guys can give me as fars as what aftermarket parts are concerned. My goal is to get the car up to about 500 hp or as close to that as possible. I don't know if that is going to be harder or easier then with the manual. It's the LS 3 for the auto and the LS 99 is the manual only.
Anyways I still have alot of reading to do on the forum...Which isn't that bad since I have alot of time sitting in this hospital bed.
So all info is greatly appreciated...Aftermarket parts....engine,chassis,exhaust As well as good threads to read.
