The fast one's quest to become The Fast One. :)
 
Well I have had my car for a total of 6 months and I think it is time to start building it and voiding my warranty.

First it is a 2012 Camaro SS LS3
I am going to try and keep a small journal with pictures and updates with new goodies. Long term goal is to be blown by next spring.-



I decided to start with the motor first after much debate with myself and input from other forum members. After that will be suspension followed by and ECS supercharger to finish it off. After that money pit I will start with the exterior one piece at time.

Mods that are going to go on shortly will be:
JRE rough idle blower cam, PRC 6.75 springs, rods, SLP 25% UD pulley, SLP double roller TC, Melling HV oil pump, Kooks 1 7/8 headers. I will be trading out the SLP Loudmouth for a set of NPP off of a 1le with the NPP in a box to make it functional. I loved that exhaust set up in my Corvette.

Future mods subject to change

motor mods
ECS supercharger with Meth injection

suspension
1le strut tower brace
1le or zl1 sway bars
pfadt lowering springs
Pfadt Race Engineering Rear Arm Package
varios pfadt bushings

Exterior
1le or similar splitter
anvil spoiler
copo style or zl1 style hood
LG zl1 style rims

Ill update as I buy parts and once they get installed along with dyno numbers from CBi.

looking god brotha keep it up.

I went down to STL and had nightshades install their NS-3 stripe kit. Probably going back down to do something with the roof but I was pressed for time to get back to my town. Any way they were a pleasure to work with and very professional. They did an awesome job and even saved me cab fair for lunch since they were heading by a place a like to eat at. The kit looks fantastic, my photo skills are just lacking.

I figured it was good for about 10 above the normal 15 that stickers add. :happyanim:
