That's IOM paint...mixed it up at the body shop per the GM paint code! It's an EXACT match!

FREE!

I did it at my buddy's bodyshop, given the small amount of material we used to shoot it, I wouldn't guess it would cost ya all that much.

So the first thing I did this morning was pull the Roto-Fab CAI off and headed down to Straightline Performance to get a baseline dyno pull 100% stock.

Results as follows :



390 RWHP/368 RWTQ on a Mustang dyno...not to shabby! There was a little dip in the TQ due to a little knock. Seems like the factory LS3 tune is fairly aggresive

The drag strip is like sniffing glue, it's cheap, it's a decent buzz, it doesn't last long and they are all the same.
Road racing is like China White Heroin, the buzz is stronger, the high lasts for hours, it's extremely addictive and they are all different.
I can't wait for my next
Track fix.

Sweet ride! We've used the cyber grey with the IOM and they look incredible together-especially in the sunlight. Thanks for using our products
