At the first Camaro Fest, I had MTI Racing install the MTI 6 shooter shifter and Vengeance Racing install the 1st gen Vararam.

The power bug hit me so I ordered, installed OBX longtube headers and got a full dyno tune by Doc at EFI Alchemy.

A few weeks ago, my car went into EFI Alchemy for a power transformation. Here, I had got the TSP 231/236 cam, harden pushrods, upgraded springs, Melling oil pump, N Motion timing set, Richmond 4.11 gears, Doug Thorley catback, BMR trailing arms/bushings, BMR differential bearings, RX catch can, and a hose reloction kit. Enjoy the pics provided by EFI Alchemy Jacksonville, Fl.

looks great

steeleshark2 04-12-2011 06:11 AM

Thanks!! I have been meaning to get this done before but didn't ever get to it. Since the car got back from EFI Alchemy, I figured it was time to start. Otherwise, it would be so far behind that it would take forever to do.:yikes:

It truly does look great. And looks like they took a bunch of pictures for you since you couldn't be there. I just hope that my car gets the numbers that your car did.

Yeah, Doc did an awesome job. This was less then half the pics he sent me. I just tried to get the best ones for my journal!! You can see they spent a lot of time doing documentation. Thanks EFI Alchemy!!

Well, looks like Monday I will get my HID headlights and fog lights by BFxenon installed. I also got my Hawks Performance Ceramic pads and my Havocs wheels. Do not have an install date yet but soon.
