SinisterEcho's LS3 Mongoose Build Journal
I had just gotten out of the military serving overseas. When I returned I took a break from work for about 2 months trying to figure out what I wanted to do. Once i had that figured out and got a job i was suddenly in the market for a new car, as I didn't have one at all. I sat there after getting the "Congratulations your hired" call and randomly decided that I wanted a Camaro SS. I told my dad my plans and he made a phone call to one of his friends from work. As it turns out that his friendís son (and now my Best friend and car buddy) works for one of the big dealership chains in Hampton Roads/VA Beach. He calls us back and says there is a 2010 Camaro 2SS/RS sitting in VA Beach at the Honda dealership with 12k miles on it. The rest is listed out in the thread....
This was taken when we got the car on the ground after the full exhaust install at MIR during the Import v.s Domestic World Championship.

Seeing as how I donít make loads of money this build is going to take some time to complete. I have some priorities that will be coming first (I.e. House and lift for the garage) that I have to buy. So, Iím getting the little things first.
In the meantime thanks for visiting and enjoy....

A couple weeks ago i installed the MGW short throw shifter I got for Christmas. The install was very straight forward and quite easy. I was very impressed with the videos that were sent with the shifter.
Heres some pics from the Install.....
