Crowley's Car
 
Picked it up on June 2nd. I have an appointment on June 29th to take it down to ADM and get the ARH Headers installed and a dyno tune. I should be doing a before and after dyno so I'll post up results.

I do plan on eventually replacing the axelback as soon as some more become available. I'm thinking something withe magnaflows in it will give a nice sound.

Additional plans include an Air Intake .. I'll wait to see what is out there and available. I also plan on doing 20x10 or 20x11s on the back with 315s on them and put 20x9s up front with 265s or 275s on them.

If MGW comes out with a shifter I will plan on putting that in the car.

That might be it for a while unless I get the itch. I'll be saving up for either a Magnacharger, KB, or Whipple in the future at some point in time.

I look forward to seeing what others do to their cars and learning from their experiences.

Other than wheels, I am not planning for any visual mods. This could change depending on what the aftermarket comes up with :headbang:

Crowley,
Looking forward to see the gains from the ARH headers. Please post pics and how much room you have after sticking those 315 under the back.

Crowley 06-25-2009 09:57 AM

So I have about 650 miles on the car so far. I have opened it up a few times and the car is very deceptive as to how fast it gets to 80mph :) Monday (June 29th) is getting closer and closer and I am getting excited about the AHR headers and Tune that will be happening that day. I am also having them weld in an 02 bung for future when I want to get FI and include an Air/Fuel wideband gauge. I am also excited because Andy will hopefully have his 427 car there with the 3 in magnaflow axelback installed. This is what I will be looking to do in the NEAR future after the AHR install (the axelback that is not the 427 :) )

I also inquired to LMR about their CAI and may try to get one before Monday if possible. I will do a baseline dyno and then a dyno after all the work is done. I'll post all the information I can!

niiiiice...

looking forward to see how it all turns out... You should do some cosmetic changes (so i can see how they look on the CGM before mine gets here) hahaha

kidding... but excited to see how it come out.

Crowley 06-29-2009 07:28 AM

There were some dyno issues late last week and they expect it to be up and running by Tuesday (6/30). That being said, I have rescheduled to Tuesday.

AHR header system and tune install yesterday. I am very happy with the gains. You can read about it here: http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=30365 .

I will be getting the magnaflow muffer system to get a better sound that I want. Stay posted for a vid soon.

Nice set up. Did you give it a tune? And, have you gotten a check engine light yet from the header install?

Yes, I got a tune when they installed the headers. I have not had any issues with Check engine lights ....

never mind me.. I am off my rocker. sorry.

cant wait for the video.. i am debating exhaust from SLP or magnaflow

Crowley 07-07-2009 11:26 AM

Update. I have had 2 check engine lights related to the O2 Sensors. I have had this fixed in the tune so I won't get these and ADM is working with the vendor on a solution that won't need the tune to resolve this.

The car is running strong and we have had a couple of cool mornings (70 - 80 degrees) and the car just loves that :)

Very cool. Looking forward to the video and the pics of 315's under the car.
:thumbsup:

Crowley 07-17-2009 07:38 AM

I think it is time to take the car to the next level. I have been in touch with ADM performance and am thinking about the following install:

TVS 2300
Blower cam and supporting mods
I have a new era air intake on order
KB BAP
Tune for it all :)

I am going to put wheels on the back burner for right now ..

I'll keep you all posted ..

Crowley

Crowley 07-26-2009 02:54 PM

Its getting closer. ADM has the blower on order and I believe he has all of the other parts in stock. We are shooting for 550rwhp with a safe streetable tune.

Sounds like you'll have quite the strip demon there, Mr. Crowley! :headbang:

TAG UR IT 07-27-2009 12:48 AM

Good Lord, man...I can't WAIT to see what comes of this...

Crowley 08-17-2009 07:55 AM
