I have been trying to get this started but keep running out of time. I wanted to have a common place to post instead of having data, info, and pics scattered everywhere. Reckon I will get this started...

MISSION: Secure 1 x 2014 Camaro 2SS RS 1LE and enhance the performance utilizing the latest technology, high quality parts, and support personnel.

END STATE: Have fun driving an American Muscle Car.

Her name is Irene. If you want to know why I named her Irene, watch the movie Blackhawk Down.

Support: ADM Performance
Parts: AGP

I spent several months in the planning process for procurement and spent quite a bit of time talking to the experts and researching. Going fast and taking pride in high performance machines runs deep...I attended my first drag race at 6 weeks old in Bakersfield, CA. My dad and his 2 brothers ran funny cars and top fuel dragsters. My uncle Darrell went on to set many records in the Top Fuel Dragster arena in the Northwest.

Everything just fell into place after talking to Andy at ADM, the car was about to be delivered and the AGP TT kit was available...lets git er dun. My intent is to build a solid street car that I can drive every day and run on the track when able - 1/4 and 1/8 mile. I would like to try a few road tracks as we have a couple here close to the DFW Metro.

Ordered: 06 May 13
Submitted: 06 Jun 13
Built: 16 Jul 13
Delivered: 09 Aug 13
MSRP: $43,500
Miles: 12

First pic getting splitter installed.

Here is a quick drive by and you can hear the Turbos in the shift.

Here is one from inside the cockpit, sounds cool!

Here is a vid with external GoPro

Here is how the car sounds with the Dual Mode-NPP

This was the first install. The visibility is a challenge and the fish eye helps me to clear left. They saved me a couple of times in my '11 SS!

Time to get some work done. This is my technique for break-in and has served me well for several years. The synthetics are slick and will not allow for a good seal...

-Installed oil breather

1. Dump oil
2. Filled with Penzoil
3. Drive it for 500 miles and keep it under 5000 RPM.
4. Changed oil - Mobil 1

Head to Big Worm for light tint and front chrome strip covered then to Spunky Joes for window tint. The tail lights on the 2SS RS are not flat so will have to get it back to David for engineering the tint.

Sweet ride! Love that menacing black on black on black. :D

Window tint is installed. Thought about going darker on the sides but decided to go with TX legal.

Billet kit and Gorilla locks arrive.

NOTE: The billet radiator cap does not work on the 2SS/1LE due to the scoop, it contacts the hood before it closes.

Emblem Pros "1LE" arrives and installed.

Anaconda 09-15-2013 03:44 PM

I'm thinking of going with this kit in the future. Any videos yet? I'd also like to see it drive around or idle. :)

The Bow Ties are textured now so vinyl is out of the question for changing color. Rattle Can! Prep and tape...

Now...the fun begins. My AGP Twin Turbo kit arrives. Unfortunately, the chief engineer at ADM (Andy) is down sick for a week. I call him everyday to check on his status and even offer a ride to the hospital or sending him a doctor to the house.
