Well the new engine should be here today or tomorrow, early next week at the latest. the IPS Twin Turbo Kit is about 5-7 days from delivery. Still need to order a new clutch though :/

Also been working with Gerry @ Wheels for Less and ordered a set of 22" 360 Forged Concave Mesh Rims, still need to decide on the finish, either black with yellow pinstripe around the rim or a fully polished look. The tires are going to be Pirelli PZeros, 275 in the front and 315 in the back. Working on doing the rims in photoshop and will post my 2 options later today!

Went to the drag strip this past weekend with a couple other camaros. Best of the night was a 12.559 w/ 2.206 60' and a .125 RT. Not very impressive for a S/C camaro but i rolled into it rather than launched the car off the line. Felt a lot better not breaking an axel. It was 90* and didnt have wheel hop. My last run I had HORRIBLE wheel hop and fishtailed all the way into 3rd. I def want to go to the dragstrip again and learn how to lauch. Only improvement from a 12.559!

Last word on the new build: Engine shipped out last week and should be arriving at the shop sometime this week. Turbo kit should be shipping out this week. I'll be going with an Exedy clutch, not sure of the specs but Luke said it'll withstand the power I want!


Fnially decided on a finish for the rims. I need to take pics of my car and will get them done in photoshop if i have time. I will be going with a brushed finish with a chrome lip. The front rims will have a slight concave with a deep concave in the back. Similiar to this design:

Nice runs still. It takes a while to learn the car and get the times down. Plus you are doing your new engine/TT's so you have to learn it all over again... but when you do - look out. Permagrin.
