New guy looking for info while building a 1998 Camaro. Have ordered about 10k worth of parts and plan to push the 3800 to it's limits. Thanks for having me.

Welcome! What kind of goodies you get? Any pics of the ride? We all want to know :D
The list is huge!
Intense heads and cams pkg stage 4, Diamond forged pistons 8.5:1, L32 con rods,
T4 turbo, Mishimoto intercooler, Flowmaster American Thunder cat back, 102mm throttle body, Fuellab regulator, Siemens Deka 60# injectors, ZZP roller rockers, Meziere electric water pump, Clevite bearings (rods and main), Intense oil pressure kit, ARP bolts and studs, and various things to connect them.

I have been waiting years to build a project car and will finally have time to do it.

Nice to meet you Quick86! I will likely have several questions for you once I put all this together. Like "how will I get all the power to the wheels" or "why does me tune make my car sound line a lawnmower." This is my first 3800 build and my first Camaro but I have been turning wrenches for most of my life and have very high hopes. Very glad to have found this community!

Likewise! I probably would have skipped all the bottom end components, but if you have deep pockets and a good machine shop put it together for you it will have potential to be a monster. How big is your turbo? What cam and fuel pump are you planning to use?

Turbo is a T4. Cam is matched with the INTENSE head/cam package (stage 4 turbo cam) and I went with a fuellab adjustable regulator and AEM high flow in-tank pump.
