How to save money on car parts, or just about anything else!

I hope no one minds my tangent on this one. I have been pretty busy with a lot of cool things for the summer in between working hard and trying to have fun and haven’t been able to update the blog about the car in a while. I hope to find the time to write about my 1st place win at Camaro Superfest soon, along with a very cool addition to the photo gallery from that show.

But for now, here’s something I wanted to share with my loyal readers and you will thank me for this one.

Recently, someone posted on CamaroZ28.Com how to save 20% or more on Advance Auto Parts’ web site by using coupon codes. I realized that I know how to save even more from there, or AutoZone or just about any other major online retailer for car parts or nearly anything else.

2010 Camaro SS + Magnacharger + Borla Exhaust + LS9 Camshaft = 508 RWHP

I think that everyone knew that the soon-to-be-installed camshaft that I mentioned in my previous post was going to be an LS9 camshaft from a Corvette ZR1.  After all, it has been mentioned on my Project & Mods page for quite a long time.

2010 Camaro SS Project – Camshaft Swap!

Remember when I said that my 2010 Camaro SS project is not even close to being done? Here is what is next… is a camshaft, but which one? is a camshaft, but which one?

Anyone care to take a guess as to what camshaft this is? I will give you a little hint…I am very surprised more Magnacharged 2010 Camaros aren’t using it, since it should to be a great camshaft for that particular application and has been proven to be a great performer on the track as well as the street.

Submit your best guess!
