Had some issues with my pulley last sunday so we switched to an ATI super dampener

Luke has been designing a seat bracket for my Sparco seats that are going in and doing a fantastic job at it. We finished designing the bracket and its fits perfectly! Seats should be going on today.

A rear seat delete kit is also getting installed, the Hotchkis Max Chassis Brace, and a set of tow hooks on the car.

The new Blu808 G5 Camaro seat bracket is finally available. This is the only seat bracket on the market that allows you to install aftermarket (Sparco) seats into your G5 Camaro without having to modify anything!

It bolts in just like stock and allows you to use the Sparco slider if you would like.

It also has integrated seat belt mounts that the Sparco seat belts clip right into.







Here on the bottom side you can see the Blu808 cam system that replicates the factory mounting brackets.











I will let Josh post up the installed pics.

These brackets allow you to assemble the whole seat/belt system outside the car and then simply slide it in and bolt it down just like the OEM seats.

Pics of my Sparco Evo Seats installed. Luke did a great job fabricating brackets for these seats. You can tell its top quality work and the best part: they are easy to slide and adjust. If the need ever arises, I'm able to pull the seat out and replace with the factory seats. Here's some pics of everything installed.

Most likely forglines as that's what Blu808 specializes in.

They have some sweet looking wheels too.

Take a look at forgeline's website and figure out what you like. Luke will know all the specs. Very happy with my forgelines. Amazing wheels!!

You bet!

Rim weight is ~20.5lbs for the front and ~21.5lbs in the rear.

If I were you go with a smaller lightweight rim. My 22s look nice but its all show and no go when I get on it!

When we went from 22s to 20s, he said i probably picked up between a ~100-150hp. imagine going to 19s, and now imagine doubling the boost........

stay away from 22s if you want to get as much power out of your car as possible! ha i learned the hard way
