I'd go to 3.73s if you want to run it at the track much. Current gearing is a good mix... a little on the highway side, but your camaro was made after the EPA started bossing the auto industry around.

the epa dont do much bossing where im from lol and your right il probbaly get a 3.73 or 4.10, this is just my fun car so im not ''too'' worried about freeway driving but i would like to be able to drive it to the track whitch is about 30 miles from home but i can take the scenic route and leave a few minutes early

You might get into the 12's, but you will have to have a stellar (for that set-up) 60 foot to do it (1.7 range), needs GOOD tires, GOOD tune and posi at least, otherwise you will struggle to get into the 13's much less the 12's. You could seal the deal w/a posi + 3.73's, IMO.
