Here is my dyno run from yesterday. Flowmaster AMT CATback and Roto-Fab CAI. RDP was just doing HP runs so no torque results.

ADM Scoop and Roto-Fab Washer Bottle Relocate

Easy install and you can here the sound difference! Engine seems smoother lower in the power band too!

for your center A/C vent, did you paint it by hand? I'm just curious because that's what I did but you can see brush marks. I don't see any on yours.

I pulled the vent out and sprayed it. Once you pull the radio, glove compartment, etc. you can reach up unclip it and pull it out. It was a pain in the ass though! Easier to get all the screws out than back in... one or two may not have been re-installed!

Pretty good actually. I'll probably redo it in the spring. Couple spots from washing/ etc. Protects the paint from chips though!

How'd you measure and get such nice lines with the plasti dip.

Used painter's tape on the edges. Basically eyeballed it, no real measuring. Trick for applying is fast heavy coats (no time in between) and get the tape off fast!

I like the mods! Are the rims supposed to look like the ZL1 rims? Who makes them?

They were out before the ZL1 and are not really the same design up close. Mine are black chrome. They are made by IVS, and are the Havoc rims. I bought them from Josh@rpi. His info is in the first post.
