Please excuse my "air dyno" Blush I want to think that the engine makes somthing in that range, based on the engine build and the level of boost I'm running.  I Have run at a real 1/8 mi.track since that first post, and I did run a 7.6 sec at 90mi per.  I do have a serious traction problem too.

Nice car, I've owned about 9 Camaros myself. (Nothing between '73 and '86 though) Anyway, I'm just a little curious how your car would only run a 12.60 in the quarter with an estimated 600HP?  Shocked  Unless you were spinning half way down the track, it doesn't make sense. I've ran 12.31 in a 66 Chevelle with only a 400hp small block 400. 600hp should put you somewhere in the 10's,....easily!
