JRPXXII with pics of new install

Here are some pics of the setup as most of you know what was done and have asked for pics. I still have several items to install now I have it back and should be done with everything this weekend and will snap shots with the new wheels and grille installed. I took shots of the new pulley system with the 10% overdrive and there is shots of the ZEX nitrous system and Snow Performance methanol kit and Brake Line lock kit and of course all the swwitches to activate all of these systems located in the console. This thing hauls the mail. I am SUPER happy with the new setup and can't wait to get everything broke in and see what it will do.

It does crank up the anxiety having to wait but at least this way I will have time to get everything broke in correctly. Not too much longer before tracks open around here.

So where is the FOur link suspension and Drag slicks you are going to be needing to make all those gadgets work??? Great Job on the build cant wait to see some numbers. Traction will be your main killer from this point on. "I was there once"

Lawdogg149 it is good to see still lurking around. Sorry to hear about your car but glad you are fine. I will be running 315 drag radials for everyday driving and getting a set of 17" drag wheels with full slicks to take to track with me and some of the high performance skinny front wheels. LOL I have all my suspension done with BMR and Spohn but think I am going to get coilovers so that I can adjust the rear high for the track as right now it just has drop springs, front/rear sways, toe rods, end links, tunnel brace, chassis braces, drive shaft loop and trailing arms. I also have diff bushings and had the Pedders drag kit 2 ordered and received like 3 pieces of the kit and they couldnt complete the rest of it, so I sent it all back. I am waiting on BMR to come out with their kit as I love everything I have from them so far and will buy whatever comes next.

turleylox if your coming to BG tomorrow call me and we can hook up. I tried watching for your call today but I never saw a missed call from the number you gave me. Apex Chase I think I saw you are coming to E-Town for our first gathering, so hopefully we will have a good day to get everyone together. I am still waiting for my axles from Chris @ GForce before I can do any launches as I am sure the stock ones would twist like pretzels with the power this thing has. I am blown away with the difference this new build is compared to my first setup as it dynoed at 627 to the wheels and the new engine is 100hp more but it feels alot more and I havent used the meth or nitrous either as I cant even imagine what that is going to be like, but I guarantee it wont be long before I do. LOL Look forward to getting to meet everyone and share our cars as this is the most addicting hobby I have ever done, and I have raced everything that has wheels, but never anything with such brute force.

I truly have an addiction with this Camaro thing. I love talking about cars, seeing what everyone has done to them and like you said, I really look forward to meeting the people behind their cars as most everyone on here feels the same. You can keep your $10 because when I hit the nitrous your going to need every penny you have to purchase a kit. HaHA
