Found this fun video from Motor Trend: Lingenfelter tuned a Camaro ZL1 to about 720HP at the tires , and sent the car to a track to see if it could top 200 MPH. Find out if they did it here (oh, and get a load of that supercharger sound ):

The guys at B&A Repair in Oakdale, MN, got my misfire fixed! For those of you that don't know, I've had a slight misfire on cylinders #1 and #6 since October of last year, and no one has been able to correctly diagnose it. Thanks to some advice I received on this site, I was able to tell B&A that it needed a crankshaft position sensor re-learn procedure done. After they did that, it runs as good as new! Heck, they only charged me $25 for it, too. Also using the shop that day was my good buddy EKinMN. He's now got AMSOIL all throughout the transmission, just like me .
Also new in Starspangled6.0's world: a fresh coat of Hurculiner for the rocker panels (I missed too many spots last year, and it was bugging me), as well as Hurculiner on the tube steps.

GM Performance really outdid itself here: They're now building drag strip only Camaros. That's right- a Camaro that you can take straight from the factory to the drag strip, complete with racing slicks, a solid rear axle, racing seats, and 3 engine options. These cars are so wild, Chevy won't even release power numbers, 1\4 miles, or even how much they weigh. Prepare to enter hot-rod heaven:

Alright, alright. I had to give in to the Plasti-dipping craze that has struck SS.com. I picked up two cans at a local Home Depot, and after getting advice from 98gmc4x4, I finally decided to take the plunge. Initially, I was only going to do my rims, but after seeing my chrome grille, I knew I had to spray that, too. Check it out:

My friend had an ATV in disrepair, so I offered to fix it up for him over the winter while he was away at college. The problem was the engine would stall on long stretches of road, at steady speed, so we needed some room to see if I actually fixed anything or not. His dad is in charge of a refinery\fuel storage site in Rosemount, MN, so we had the run of the place for a few hours today. There's some beautiful country down there, so I couldn't resist snapping a ton of pics. The weather was perfect, and I even got to test out the truck's off-roading abilities, too. There's nothing better than flying down a dirt road at 30 MPH on an ATV, without a helmet, or trying to get the truck out of soft, wet sand. Life is good. Oh, and I fixed the ATV, too .
