Anything by SAM

I'd also like to see a completely off the wall 4200 turbo build. I've heard of people trying it but I'm not sure if anyone out there has completed one and is making "supra-zized" power.

Finally, I'd like to see a build featuring all the "scraps" left over from other people's builds like 4.8 blocks with 3.622 cast cranks and 97-98 style heads, an LS1 intake, etc. Basically, take the OEM stuff other people just throw away on ebay and build a 350 hp engine on McDonalds wages.... then maybe stick it in something light but cheap and go fast. At the end, maybe nuke it with terminal ammounts of nitrous for laughs.

+1 on the GTOs.  
A Bumblebee is considerably faster than a John Deere Tractor.

Love the mag! I'm having a crazy "mid-life crisis" dream build.  Swapping in an LS motor into a Ferrari 308 GTS. If it fits, imagine the 1/4 times.  It would also be way more reliable!

Hi,

I would to see more projects on any ECOtec platforms - new projects, products and updates.. It's nice to see big block power in the magazine but the ECOtec 4-banger can reach 800-1000hp on pump gas too.. Like the ZZP [zzperformance.com] Twincharged setup 850+HP/TQ setup running 8 - 9 sec 1/4m passes - 2.0 liter LSJ- 9.82@ 141.6mph(30psi), 898whp(54psi).. or the Fastest 2.0 LNF- 10.99@ 133.6mph(27psi), 612 whp sae(34psi).. and this is all happening on the 4cyl.. Cool Yea, it's GM platform, but it should be in the magazine too..

I would have to say Pontiac grand prix gtp's are way overlooked. I have over 400hp in my lil v6 and ran just under 12 seconds in the 1/4. With my factory supercharged, but tweaked v6, Eaton camaro's, crapping mustangs and pull 35mpg at 75mph on the freeway! What v8 can run the 1/4 and get that mileage? Officially, 405 crank HP, 335fwhp, and 480 ft lbs of torque. All on 91 pump premium gas, it does produce more with higher octane tho. Oh, and built it up when it had 165000 miles on it, doesn't burn/leak anything but gas and rubber. These cars are scoffed at at the drag line, then people say wth? And I did what I did for less then $2k and just weekend duty here and there. If I learned as I went with no help, I still pulled an 11.92 @ 129mph, if I can do that, what can gmhightech do?

We do not cover Gen 2 Camaros, only GM cars that came with EFI such as the third-gen, C4, G-bodies, etc.

Not sure if it has been suggested,I have not look through the whole thread.It seems like the popularity has really died on the 94-96 Impala SS.A tribute issue to the late model B-body would be so awesome,I love f-bodies but the reason I have not renewed my magazine subscription is because there just was not enough coverage on the car I bought and loved for 18 years,the Impala SS.Just my 2 cents.

I think a LS1/2/3 swap into a solid late 3rd gen along with brake, suspension, and tire upgrades would be excellent. Of course when done, you need to run it against STI killer on the road course to prove its mettle.

I'd like to see more 4th gen fbods with auto cross/ road and track suspensions. Everyday is not a track day so I'd like to see a suspension setup that's fun to drive both on and off the strip.

I'd like for my 98 SGM Z28 be featured in the back. I've yet to see a Sport Gold Metallic Camaro in a GM High-Tech magazine.
