just got my car back from a full day of detailing. Mindz sat out in the street all day while mine was getting detailed
Jeff did a fantastic job so shes already for the trek through the desert to AZ! Gotta tape her up Wednesday before I leave; 2 more days before we leave!!!

Looks like I'll have to decide what I want put on before the Fest. Meth is the winner. Doubt the coilovers will be going on; at least ill have something to look forward to when I get back!

I'll be fine; but i cant push it too hard because i have a pretty high chance of the car stepping out at higher speeds. I'm order some 305s or 315s today and get them swapped when i come back from AZ.

Just before the fest I got Hawk HPS Brake Pads installed along with a Meth Kit from AEM. Picked up the car Wednesday night and dynotuned it again. Got 616hp/620tq......finally got the 600+ hp I was looking for

Coilovers came in over the weekend so I'll drop my car off tomorrow for those to get installed. Also dropping off the prototype hood from RKSport I got. (Its all carbon fiber, with a window in the middle of the cowl and 1 grated air slat on each side).

I'm seriously talking to Luke about dropping a new engine in my car. Ideally I want to put in an LS7, buut well see how much thatll be!

As a side note.....hit 20K MILES ON THE WAY HOME FROM C5II!!!!

I WASN'T kidding when I said I was getting my car a new engine when it hit 20k miles!

It was great meeting everybody over the weekend and seeing the monsters that some people are building!!!!

Got my coilovers installed along with my new hood from RKSport. I'm EXTREMELY happy with my hood; it really sets the car off.....now if only my trunk would arrive!

I've heard good things about BC as well. It will be a while before I have mine, but when I get them I'll definitely do that. We can both go and tear up some pavement.

or actually ur probably talking bout the whole car? not gunna happen right now. I just got a new steering wheel, center console has yellow stitching, yellow leather seat covers......its kinda growing on me! I did buy a yellow car lol! The cheapest wrap i could find was around $3k and that was with a partial sponsorship. I'm looking at dropping a new engine in (ideally) LS7 but im looking to have 750-800+ hp by July 4th
