Build Pics.



Fresh from the factory tucked away in Tom's garage.





My car came with the very rare 1FLA option....








Which includes the snow drift location beacon...





Oh boy... Scott and Tom "testing" my car...






Supercharger and ARH exhaust install. Great Job Tony!









Final Dyno Numbers From Tom Henry





And finally picking up THR 22. Thanks again, to Tom, Fbod, Number 3, Pete, Speedster, Tag, MrC, Dragon, Cyn, Blade, Zebra, Mlee, 68, Shno and especially PQ for keeping me "occupied" while I waited.







First pic back home in FL.






First Mod. Airaid asked me to modify and test fit an intake on the maggie.





TechAFX heater hose relocation kit. Hard to see in this pic. The heater hoses that normally run over the top of the passenger side valve cover are now routed below the passenger side heads, above the headers.






First Cosmetic Mod. Color matched antenna from BeckyD@rodgers.





Personalized Plate





Heritage Grille, again from Becky.





Mike Norris Catch Can.

Well guys.

My plans changed.. Even though we are relatively certain that the Z28 will be here eventually, I can't wait any longer.

I've decided that Tom Henry has the best setup for me. I've updated my OP with the information on my build. His new Supercharged THR cars have everything I wanted with one stop shopping.

I'll post all the updates here as things progress.

I even changed my color.. Order number is in hand, now just waiting on the car. Tom has been awesome to work with.

More to follow!

The anticipation and careful (OK, some impulse) planning have paid off. GTA's car will be a screamer and look good too !!

Late to the party but quick to jump on the mods.

Mines gonna have about 30k by then.

I feel like mines wasting away. Just don't have the BIG funds to do it all now.

Hey Chris, how many has TH done so far?

Hey PQ - something tells me Tom Henry Racing is not going to put their name on a product that fails...

Besides, GTA will have time to stomp on it and if something breaks- we'll fix it before the Fest. There is a backup LS3/L99 floating around if someone on here toasts their engine before C5F.

I'm paranoid, I know.

Remember, though, I'm just now after 7 months starting the process of doing warranty voiding stuff to my car.
