My Lingenfelter Camaro Build
 
6 Attachment(s)
Well - my build is starting today it looks like. My Borla exhaust is getting shipped to them today and I am hoping that the Pedders Xa's will come in sometime soon as well. I will keep updating with pictures. I am so excited that it is beginning!!!

DETAILS:

It is the 570hp package -

Package includes:
- TVS2300 intercooled supercharger system
- Black powder coated finish
- Based on OEM Eaton supercharger unit
- Properly sized fuel injectors
- Fuel system upgrades
- 160 Degree thermostat
- Boost bypass controller
- Kenne Bell Boost-a-pump fuel pump voltage booster
- Lingenfelter High Flow Air Intake
- Professional installation, testing and calibration
- Chassis dyno report before & after installation
- Excellent drivability, highway mileage not adversely affected
- Lingenfelter 3 year/ 36,000 mile warranty
- Lingenfelter chrome fender badges
- Lingenfelter certificate of authenticity

Package price - $10,995.00

I am also getting the painted coil covers.

With the Borla Stinger exhaust it should be a little more than the 570, we will see. I think they were dynoing at 530rwhp with the stock exhaust on their test car. I am also having them install the Pedders Xa Coilovers, Radius Rod and Subframe bushings.

I have been very good to the wife for the last few years. I got rid of my 98SS in 2004 when we got married and now I am going to replace it since we are doing ok. I will have this car for a long time and I want to get it done right, from the beginning. I have to have rear seats as kids are in the future or I probably would have gone for a used Z06 vette.

radz28 07-09-2009 02:16 PM

BRAVO!!! I just gave up my '02 Z28 that I had way too much money in so that I could get my wifey in a new car. I figure I kinda' doing something similar to you.

I do know that I think you're building my Z28 though :D I can't wait to see your results ;)

Nice!! You have to keep the wife happy, thats for sure. I have been driving a 99 Sliverado for the last 4 years, 185,000 miles now. She told me I would probably end up getting a new car in 2 or 3 years from now, so I had to spend a little extra and get what I really wanted (close to a Z28). That way I convinced her that I would keep it for a long time.

I just can't wait to see my car - I never got a picture or anything from the drop ship dealer, so these are the first pictures I have seen of it.

:word: Nothing wrong with that! It's all about give-and-take :thumbsup:

OH!!! You haven't even seen the car yet?! If so, I'm sorry; I missed that. I see. Very exciting :D:chevy:

Wow, this is too cool, you have the same color car as I do! Mine is slated to be sent up for the same treatment around the 15th. They are waiting on more magna chargers, said about the middle of the month. I am going to try the Corsa Cat backs, then go with new rear gears, around 3.73, this car really needs more gear in the rear. Other than that the car is awsome, you will love it.
Enjoy, and Pleeeeaaassseee keep me informed!!!! I cant wait to hear how she runs when you get her.:headbang:

Tran 07-09-2009 08:16 PM

Awesome! Please keep updating with photos and info. Would love to feature your build on the homepage at some point.

Sweet - it is nice to know someone else who is getting their build done there. Corsa's sound great also but I loved the sound of the Borla on the vettes. Believe me - I can't wait for it to be done. I need to get some cruising in before the summer is over.

I will definately keep updating with photos and info. It would be cool to featured on the homepage. I really do owe it to the people on this forum for helping me with this. If I wasn't an member, I probably would be driving around a stock Camaro SS/RS.:thumbsup:

I will be able to post the Dyno graph when it is done. Their test car dynoed 530 to the wheels.

That is a retarded amount of money for 570 BHP. No CAM, No Heads. Ouch. But hey, you gotta pay to play I guess. Wait a year and you can do that in your garage for less than half.

Enjoy the ride.

tones2SS 07-10-2009 02:41 PM

Very cool Speed!
3 year warranty?!?! You can't beat that! One question though. Why did you go with the Borla exhaust?
Keep us posted!:thumbsup::drinking:

I see a lot of Corsa exhausts out there and wanted it to be a little different. I watched a lot of videos with the Borla Stingers on the vettes and liked the sound.

Some people may want to install a supercharger themself but I do not want to do it and I sure can't do the injectors, fuel system, boost bypass, dyno and tune. Along with that, I can't give myself a 3yr, 36k mile warranty on the engine & S/C but Lingenfelter does. Plus they have a reputation and that was one of the biggest things for me. I probably could have waited a year and bought a used car and did the same thing but.... this is my car that no one else has driven and it is Lingenfelter from the start!!:thumbsup:
