Just thought I would take some pics of some new toys

Installed the Halltech Yellow Jacket CAI with an Elite Engineering Catch Can and switched out my stock throttle body with a Semi-Gloss Black Painted VMAX CNC Ported Throttle Body. I bought the ADM Race Scoop for the Yellow Jacket but never got around it installing it. It's going to go in soon. Also upgraded my radar detector to a Beltronics Escort Redline. The new performance mods feel good to the butt dyno.




I also installed a Sub thump Integrated Amp/Sub/Stealth Enclosure with a Kicker ZX400.1 Mono Amplifier and a Kicker 12" CompVR Subwoofer. In addition I replaced the factory amp thanks to the Sub thump Factory Amp Replacement Kit with a JL Audio XD400/4 4-Channel Amplifier.



I ended up taking all of the black paint off of my exhaust tips due to some peeling. I kind of like it with it anyway.

Next to go on are some awesome engine bay accessories from Showstopper, LSR, and Ohio-Speed.

For Memorial Day Weekend I decided to start putting in some items that have been slowly collecting in my living room. I took out the engine cover and put on the Mast Motorsports Black Label LS3 Fuel Rails; Showstopper Premium Under Hood Bowtie, ABS Controller Cover, Master Cylinder Cover, Fuse Box Cover, and Black Wire Harness Cover; Billet Custom Black Anodized Billet Idler Pulley, AC Fittings, Oil Cap, Master Brake Cylinder Cap, Battery Post Cover, Radiator Cap, Radiator Overflow Cap; LSR Performance Black Anodized Billet Strut Tower Caps; and TechAFX EVAP Hider Hose.

I also painted my oil dipstick handle black and relocated my heater hoses. Some more pics:



I put on my first suspension mod as well, the Hotchkis Max Chassis Brace, car feels a bit better on the turns.

Up next is to finally install the ADM race scoop and my new washer fluid bag. Then, to Vengeance Racing for headers and a tune!

Just a quick update, I got around to installing my ADM race scoop/windshield washer bag and I also got my TSP underdrive pulley and TSP long tube headers installed and dyno tuned by the friendly folks at Vengeance Racing and here are the results :



As you can see it might not have been the best day for the tune since my baseline which had my catback, cai, race scoop, and ported throttle body on it came out 8hp less than my stock dyno

Anyway, that's quite the gain for headers, ud pulley, and a tune.

Got around to putting on these cool new plug wires from Taylor. They're thick (10.4 mm) and the red matches perfectly with my car's Victory Red color. You can also see my new TSP headers have turned a nice bronze color as I've been breaking them in.





Next I'll be recovering money in preparation for a short shifter and some BMR Suspension parts.

It's been a long time since I've updated this page so I figured I'd show everything I've put into this car over the last year or so.



In the suspension department, I've added a slew of BMR parts that you can find in my mod list including their 1" lowering springs. Love the stance.



I put on new Showstopper LED side markers which have replaced my AAC LED side markers. To those interested, I'd highly recommend the Showstoppers over the AACs. Superior build quality, they match my LED turn signal mirrors, and I've had them for about a year in which no LEDs went out unlike the multitude of times the AACs have gone out.





In the engine bay, I added an RX breather to the valve cover and drove up to Vengeance Racing to put in their Koatic Cam, along with their dual spring kit and other accompanying parts. After a retune, the cam put down 470 rwhp & 439 rwtq!





All the brake dust this thing has from the stock brakes was killing me so I wanted some new brakes. I went with a DBA slotted 5000/4000 series split for the front and back rotors, upgraded my lines to Goodridge SS lines and changed my pads to Hawk ceramics. I took this combo to Road Atlanta for a weekend and they performed splendedly. I also changed the rear tires to a set of Nitto Invo's which have been working well for me so far.



I redid my audio system by putting in a Scosche dash kit with a Kenwood DNX-9990HD headunit. Feels so good to have a full headunit back. Here's some pics of the new interior.





Added a Lloyd Mat embroidered trunk mat to the trunk. I needed something to make it look better since I did a piss poor job at cutting the stock trunk carpetting for my sub. It's nice and sturdy.



I decided that I really wanted a HUD in my car so I took some time and using Ofer's (2SSRS's) directions, retrofitted the Camaro HUD into my car. At the same time, I added ambient lighting to my dash. I think it came out great and the new HUD was totally worth the work.





I really like where the car is right now. I think the only thing left before stepping up to FI (if I decide to do so) is to get some better gearing in. I'm thinking of upgrading to the ZL1 rear drivetrain to get a strong rear end plus 3.73 gears.

Time to bump this thread from the dead for an update!



A few things have changed in the last 2+ years.

I decided to plastidip my front lower lip and my trunk to get rid of the magnetic black out. I think it turned out great.





Plus the new 6.2L Hood badges



On the inside, I've changed from my Schosche dash kit to the Metra kit. The scosche was being too tempermental and caused weird quirks. I've also added a push button start and smart keyless entry system from Advanced Keys. This thing is awesome! Just walk up to the car and it unlocks, get in, push the button, and you're off.





Here's the new keyfob, it's pretty sleek.



I hooked up a Dashlogic to the obdii port and now I've got the parameters I want to see readily available on my HUD and DIC. I've got an AEM Wideband wired up to it as well for AFRs but haven't had time to install the O2 sensor yet so the AFR on the HUD is a dummy value. The HUD is actually much clearer IRL but I could only get ghosted images when trying to take a pic.





For some security and probably entertainment I wired up a dash cam to be recording while I'm driving. It's right behind my rearview mirror and really unobtrusive; I barely notice it.



In addition, I added a few hidden items to the car like a Vitesse throttle controller (which has been pretty fun), a GPS tracker that streams the gps coordinates straight to my home gps tracking server, and a spare wheel kit in case I need to limp home.



Next step is to get supercharged Looking to make that happen in the near future!
