She gets up for work at 5 so she will not be happy, I better get off the board and back to the garage and finish this job.

Cog drive installed! The whine was very nice at startup, it's taking for ever to download the video from the card to the computer so video may not come out until tomorrow. The whine is not as loud as I was thinking, yet it is noticeable. The installation is a PIA with the tight space behind the maggie, should have gone with a 1.9. I think I need to loosen the belt just a little since it's not as loose as the one on the cog drive thread that I have been following. The catch can will have to wait for another day since it's almost midnight.

I thought I took it up to at least 3250 one time. I tried the gopro outside, too much wind noise so I'm going to put one in the engine bay and hope it doeat melt. The sound makes me think I should have a nightrider strobe light in the mailslot.

Ran the quarter mile a couple times today, major traction and wheel hop issues. Best two runs were 12.66 and 12.68.

I'm car number 101. Happy with my results, they could have been much better if I could figure out how to get it off of the line a little quicker. I have done much better in my 60' times prior to the added power. I'm thinking of ordering the linelock today.

The red one is incredibly fast!

Just ordered the TCI RollStop line lock system for my car, I hope this allows me to warm up my drag radials good enough to get into the low 12's!

Just purchased two rear SS wheels to place up front on my car. Anyone know if I will have any rub issues with the 275's up front with a 1.4" drop? I can always throw them in the back if they do rub, just wondering. How much are the TSP monitors each? This allows me to replace my worn fronts for the drive to arizona and still use the old ones till they are fully warn. The plan is to stick a racing tire on the original wheels when the original tires are completely worn out. I now have a complete extra set of 20X9's and only need two more wheels to let me have auto-x and drag tires.

My Camaro turned one today and I'm still as happy and maybe even happier with it that the day I brought it home. No issues to report over the last year. I'm trying to get some energy to go to the garage and perform one a mod on it, there are several in the garage waiting for install and some free time.

The driver's seat belt in my 2010 has a problem. The button no longer works as it should and I need to flex pry the male part while pressing the button to get the seat belt to release. I'm going to take it in, my car just turned 1 year old today and that is the only problem to date with 9500 miles on it.

I purchased a gauge pod from Stillen and an Innovate wide band A/F gauge from Innovate Motorsports today. I will be picking up an AutoMeter boost/Vac gauge in the next couple of days. Hope to install before the Fest and log the A/F with my SCT scanner and laptop.

I purchased a couple of items at the Fest last week. Will be installing soon.

Hotchkis Strut Tower Brace that clears my Maggie. Going to paint it red.
SLP fading side shark fin stickers.
AAC side tinted and painted LED marker lights.

Looking at purchasing a BMR rear subframe bushing kit. Looking at the PRO version, I like the PFADT ones, they are just a little too much.

I will post some pictures tomorrow, the paint is still drying. The bar looks much better in red than it did in black, just wished it was powder coated. The car is going on jack stands for three weeks on Thursday, lots of mods to do.
