Have you tried a quote from Patrick at GMpartshouse? Oh you are overseas? Yeah probably going to be a decent chunk to ship. If only all cool car parts would be cheap. It's easy to burn up money on these things. I'm in savings mode too.

I appreciate the suggestion. I do think the havoc diffuser is killer looking. I actually almost pulled the trigger on that before going the ZL route.

A few updates. Bot is at AHP getting a few things finalized, suspension/alignment. Also getting the windows tinted finally 35% all around. Another thing being done is swapping out the LMII for the LMI. I feel this beast needs to razor a bit more. I'll have some new pics and videos up in a few days, hopefully. Oh, I still need to get my headlight armor smoked lense kit on. I'll do that on a day that seems to be good without rain in the forecast.

I had to put these on here. XVengeancex28 one of C5's top designers and artists outdid himself. He took on a project sketching out then painting my car on canvas. It came out incredible. Great work, Chris! Thanks for taking the time to do this and major respect for your talent.

It started with this:



And the final product...

I got the car back this weekend after getting a few things finalized at AHP. SLP had to put together a Loudmouth I exhaust with a few custom bends to marry up to the diffuser. Man this exhaust sounds wicked. I took a couple videos today, but the sound wasn't coming up right. I'm trying to get a perfect clip for everyone to hear. I couldn't be happier. This is what 600+ horses is suppose to sound like.

Once I get to retake the videos I'll post them up. I took a quick snap shot today of the new tint. Looks good, 35%.




I'm going to try to put the headlight armor on tomorrow as well.
More to come...

I took this shot a while back, the angles looked crazy, just thought it made a cool pic. Looks like the car fell forward off the lift? ;-)

Bu3ali - I do not think there is currently anyone that makes a diffuser like this outside of SLP. Unfortunately this diffuser is part of SLPs ZL series cars and they do not sell them separately. Maybe in some time they will?

Here is a pic with some Headlight Armor Smoke tint. Looking pretty mean...



I also just got off the phone with Roger at Emblempros, we are making some custom badging that will fit better with my orange/black theme. Stay tuned...
