Stopped by Blu808 today, learned how to change my oil and lowered the front coilovers more (looks great!) and tunnel brace from manny went on. Ordered cutouts for my car; I'm interested to see (how much) louder my car can get . My brakes are still sqeaking a little sine the hawk pads went on so im getting the cross drilled and slotted ones; should be on next week

Hey can you give me the information on the lights you use in the blinkers?

Thanks!

Ya, here's the link i went off of:

http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=101914

his is a non-RS car though. You'll notice that the center prong on the blinker terminal only has two wires. I had to splice a the power to the halos and ran that into the blinker terminal (just drilled a hole in the side of the terminal) and soldered it in the middle prong. I can take some pics tonight if you like. Its pretty straight forward, took me about 35 mins. Those bulbs dont match the OEM halos if you look at it closely, but it looks great!

ordered a set of Nitto 555Rs today, 305s. they should be in later this week! found out the CF hood is a little further on backorder than expected, 6 WEEKS! but good new is that my CF guage pod and center bezel will ship next Friday .

cutouts will go on next week along with my new set of mufflers. Roll cage and harnesses should also be ready to go for the AutoX in marina on the 15th.

spoke more to my shop about getting a new engine. right now im probably gunna be getting a 418 stroker LS3. but i found out that since its a bigger engine the blower wont do as much as it is now. if i go down to smaller pulleys.....probably have about the same rwhp as now. so now i gotta look at switching to TT or a bigger supercharger. i see lots of people running prochargers, but then i would lose my tq #s as well. I love how the maggie has an even distro of hp and tq. also someone is running a 427 TT and has 793hp/8??tq. gotta do some more research.....any input?
