I couldn't agree more. Eventually it'll be put on. Before the Good Guys show for sure.

Thanks Bruce. Of course it isn't that loud anymore, but sounds just as mean. The polished tips look nice too.

Can't wait until the Fest. Everything will be revealed there.

These are things on my checklist left to do to the car.

Must haves:
Afterburner tails
quad diffuser
rear emblem on
my wheels

Really want, but only maybe:
Dash ABL with CF/painted panels
Steering wheel and shift knob refinished
Special headliner project

Maybes:
CTS-V recaros
big brakes
vented fenders

Any vendors looking to do a partial/full sponsorship on any of the maybes?

Well I get a instant message from my tuner. The car is down to 5 psi after longtubes and 3" exhaust, and that's WITH the pulley upgrade I was sent from Procharger.

Called Procharger up and spoke to a technician who got me squared away with the correct pulley that I need. That's being sent out today and will arrive sometime next week.

The issue is that I might have to pay for a re-tune because the tuner did spend the time tuning the car.

More time and money wasted. This is becoming upsetting and discourages me from modding my car any further at all. Not feeling too happy right now.

Bro, it's tough... I'm climbing out of my skin wanting my car to progress, but.... It's crazy in some cases....As well as mine was planned, we can't help what the vendors on the supply end do... I'm still waiting on a shortblock, and my Turbo kit should be shipped today... Shortblock by early next week, Monday, Tuesday the latest, according to the engine builder...

Just think how awesome it's going to be when you get it back ready to go....thats what I keep telling myself...

That's if I keep having emergency money to fix all these "oops". It's just money wasted...Yah it will be awesome, if it ever gets done...

It's just disheartening is all. Thanks for your concern. =)

Are you at least able to drive your car until the pulley comes in?

Yeah, car is already tuned for the 5 psi it's at now. I just will most likely have to pay to retune it. I might just stay with the 5 psi (lower hp then without the headers...) for a while.

Planning on it, but even so, that's 150 that I didn't NEED to spend. Here's hoping.

Bummer J,

But, all that REALLY means, is everything is working very efficiently, which is a good thing! New pulley and a tune, not a major deal, but yes, costs $$.

Minor setback, but easier overcome!

Exactly what I was thinking, if he was able to drop 4lbs of boost then hes breathing alotttt better now. I wonder if the larger tubes on the headers gained him the extra, since most 17/8 headers drop 2lbs. A 4lb swing is great for only headers & exhaust. The only thing I dont get is why you would dyno lower flowing that much better. Even with a 2lbs drop, I would of thought you would be around your previous numbers or better. You might need a smaller belt for that new pulley they are sending over if you haven't thought about it. Im looking forward to seeing what you can get out of this setup with the proper boost, good luck on the build man

I'm only 8 hp lower than my previous numbers, but that's 2 psi lower with the smaller pulley.

I don't need a new belt for the new pulley. It's just a matter of replacing the pulley and tuning again.

Well I was able to get on it yesterday for the first time since picking the car up Saturday morning. It sounds phenomenal! It's pretty quiet and tame until I get on it, and when I do, the car sounds angry. There is no drone at all, just a light hum under load between 1000-1400. I don't get a headache from it, like I did with the MBRP that a friend used to have in his car with lt's.

Videos will be uploaded tomorrow.

Here's one of the pics from the photoshoot a few weeks back. Turns out the shoot was more for the models so the pictures we got back had only one or two without them.

Here's one of mine.

LOL

I am already thinking of a better solution for attaching he passenger side. I'll have to purchase a set of the AAC lights to test it out. It could work nicely. I noticed last night my driver side is brighter than the passenger, probably because it is reflecting off the pedals and the plastic cover over the floor mat. The passenger side is all carpet so there is not much to truly reflect off of.

I used a set from Fry's (LED's for case modding) and they were about $12 each. They came in a clear tube and I was able to put the tube in a clamp or something already molded into the cover and they hold tight without any wire ties. I can roll the tube in any direction to control the brightness if needed.

That's pretty cool. I was thinking either a tube or a flat strip of something that you could adhere the lights to then attach at either end. The tube idea works best, no issue with the tape failing and like you mention you can adjust the direction/intensity of the light. very nice.
