Well today my 2002 SS finally came in.....but somewhere in the transport they [email protected]#ked up my SS.The center mounted exhaust was pushed in and pushed all the way to the side.We put it on the lift and it was all out of wack to the bottom of the engine.So not knowing what else was done I said no way am I taking this car so I declined.Plus the brakes lights did not work.They asked me if I wanted to order another SS and I said no.The waiting for this car was way to stressfull and for this to happen I could not do it again.So I went home totally depressed and very pissed.About 1 hour later I said what the [email protected]#k.I went back and bought a brand new Torch Red Z06.This car is really amazing.I have only 90 miles so far and have already come to this conclusion this car is one cleass act.Oh hello Guys and Gals.Good to be here.....awesome forum.

Welcome GaryZ06,

Good decision with he Z06, I also wanted an SS Camaro but after comparing prices and insurance, I decided with the Z06. It's a WAY better car.

Where did you buy it? What year is it? What did you pay?

By the way, where in NMB are you? I used to live in that area a few years ago.

vprkllr....I always had white cars so when I was looking at the Z06's I wanted something different and something that visually screams.I took one lokk at the Torch Red and I was hooked.Let me ask you guys two questions and remember I am new to Vettes but know my stuff about F-bodies.What choices do I have for air boxes and what choices for shifters? Thanks

Check the link on the top of this website. I'm pretty sure you'll like the Halltech, it is really NICE, if not try Breathless Performance they are in Davie, off of I-95, they sell the Vortex.
