If you guys haven’t realized it before now, but I am from the Cayman Islands that is located in the Caribbean about 480 miles south of Florida.
We are a group of three islands and the one I live on being the biggest. Being a small island doesn’t me we are back in time or anything,
we are actually very modern and fast paced.


My official order was submitted to GM on July 3rd, 2009 and my car was delivered 29th September, 2009.

Updated pics in first post! 28/9/09

Man I have been waiting for this day for 3 months now

Tomorrow morning I am picking it up and getting the windows tinted, stripes put on, New ERA intake and maybe the Borla for now. I'll put on the ARH LT's on Saturday on my day off when I have a bit more time.

looking good...good luck.

FYI...you didn't need to buy the SLP skip-shift eliminator...you should be able to tune it out with whatever tuning software you go with.

Thx. I know, but probably won't get it tuned until the 2yr warranty is up. (not sure if I can hold out that long though)

I spoke to them already about the headers not affecting the warranty and I'll just remove the skip-shift eliminator when ever I take it in for service so they don't find it.

New ERA OTR Intake

Well this is the first mod so far. Took it for a spin and you can feel a bit more response. Hopefully Saturday I'll get the ARH LT's and Borla's on.

ARH LT's, Borla axle back install

Well I got my LT's and Borlas installed on Sat 3rd Oct with only 54 miles on the car. All I can say.........THIS SET UP ROCKS!!!!!!.........Man does it sound good. The vid I took does do this thing justice. You can deffinately feel the difference in the ole but dyno!!!!! Today I hit 109 miles and the dam engine light came up. Not sure yet if I am going to get it tuned.

I did the install myself with the wife giving me a helping hand taking only about 4.5 to 5 hrs......I was in no rush plus I only had jack stands. I must say my wife and I enjoyed it.

Here are a few pics.....

ARH LT's & Borla

That exhaust system sounds awesome! Did that Borla axle back bolt right up to the ARH system with no fitment issues?

The video doesn't do the exhaust justice.....trust me it's awesome! There is about 2 feet of the old piping that you have to used between the x-pipe and the Borla. But it fits up real nice.

That small piece of old pipe just un-clamp from the factory system or do you have to cut if from the stock mufflers?

You have to cut it with a reciprocating saw. The instuctions with the ARH system tells u exactly where to mark and cut it. Really simple installation......took me about 4.5 hours to do the total system with the Borla

ZEUSS ABL with EL Wire

Well I did the ABL to go across the dash with EL Wire. It was a fairly easy set up. The only thing that took a while was the sanding of the dash trim. Take your time and it will come out fine.
