JVibe92 Camaro Build Thread
Well, I decided to finally start my own build thread.

First a little about myself as of 1/16/2013.

I was born in Venezuela and didn't come to the US until i was 3. I live in Texas where more permanently; Houston. I go to college at Texas Tech University but will be transferring to the University of Houston. I'm 20 years old and if i count my cards right I will be opening my own physical therapy clinic where I will be doctoring.

The reason for me ending up with a Camaro was solely on the Transformers movie, not gonna lie. Where I saw the 2010 Camaro SS, i was like "damnn, i wish I had that car" and now I do, just not the SS :/

I bought the silver mettalic 2011 Chevy Camaro LS for around 22500 from the delear cause he had to match my price from a picture on a coupon in a magazine :))

Here she is, I thought it was the fastest thing ever haha I know lame.

Purchased on September 2010. Bought with only 8 miles on it.
Picture my friend took with his Canon while at after prom by beach
Another one of me taking my prom date to prom, now still happily together at almost 2 years :)

Now shes been through some deals, had my first accident when I guy pulled a gun on me by greenspoint because i "Cut him off" and got in a high speed chase where she decided to go SS on me. He had a raptor, raised and it ended with me getting away after a 10 mile chase on I-45 at 120mph. I got hit by a semi trying to cross a feter all at once but ended up leaving the scene cause he tried to get me STILL and rammed me off the road but my Grand theft auto kicked in and ended up losing him in a neighborhood.. dents and bullet holes yet no cop ever noticed..... TRUE STORY HERE TOO. Charges were never placed but I paid 6000$ in damage... I know FML.

Well my first mod was an air intake, I chose spectre for the very reason I chose the LS. Sleeper. No one uses spectre but as my dyno chart proved, I got 14 hp and 13 TQ. For 120$ that was best bang for my buck.

My next mod was visual stuff, like 2 transformer emblems under each camaro, then hood stripes, plastidipped bezels, and the front bowtie delete.

After came Footwell LEDs from ledglow with a switch and 18 different light modes.
Just Recently I had my MRT v2.0 installed and I love it, looks sexy too.
These also show my bezels, exhaust, emblems, but not the delete. :p

I don't know if its just me, but none of the pictures are working?

J_Vibe92 01-16-2013 11:06 PM

Sorry, wrong code :p

AyeeLG 01-16-2013 11:10 PM

Sorry to hear about the $6000 in damages. Atleast you didn't get shot though! I've never liked Houston. :yikes:

J_Vibe92 01-16-2013 11:12 PM

Yeah, got a hella big dent by the fuel side quarter panel

AyeeLG 01-16-2013 11:13 PM

You got any pics of the car when it happen?

J_Vibe92 01-16-2013 11:15 PM

On my old phone, I dont even wanna remember that day. REAL BAD EXPERIENCE.

but pretty much it had a deep dent from right above the fuel door to like a couple inches from the trunk

J_Vibe92 01-16-2013 11:16 PM

The entire right rear quarter panel had to be thrown away

lscamaro 01-17-2013 01:55 AM

Wow, that's a crazy story!!! Good thing you got out safely!!

So what's next with the car? Any new mods on the way?

J_Vibe92 01-17-2013 04:09 AM

I am trying to find someone willing to sell me the stock 18 inch alloy rims from the LT and imma get it black. if I cant then I might just buy the catch can or iceolator or throttle body since they all the same price

J_Vibe92 02-15-2013 10:40 PM

Elite Catch can :) sorry for dirt, in lubbock at college... too dusty to keep up with cleaning

J_Vibe92 02-15-2013 10:41 PM

Before and After my install of my new grille :)

J_Vibe92 03-30-2013 12:05 AM

Just installed my black iceolator. forgot to take pics, DANG! but i love the mod so far. Interesting experience to take apart the IM. Feels good to work on something and have it work. Watch out on torquing bolts. I broke one :(

J_Vibe92 04-02-2013 12:18 AM

Did a little project and painted my calipers and plastidipped my rims :)

NO2SNO 04-05-2013 07:00 PM

Your new rims from AZ look awesome! They have been to Calif., NM, Colorado and now Texas. Where you taking them next?


J_Vibe92 04-06-2013 07:49 AM

no where! unless I can round up 1k plus for some TSWs hahah. All my money will be going to headers, tune, ported TB, eagle eyes, RX SC so i can keep the headers, ACS TL1 hood insert, and etc etc etc... the list will never end

J_Vibe92 04-26-2013 08:50 PM

Installed the Vmaxx ported throttle body and heres the vararam as well :)

J_Vibe92 05-30-2013 01:38 AM
