Thank you my brothers, much appreciated! You both know how much ups & downs I've been through & I thank you both for the support you've given me!!

Don't worry Dizz, that hood will really complete your ride (and we'll be twins ) You know the waiting is the hardest part, but you will be happy with your MPD1 hood & fitment!!

Probably heading up on Friday to bring her home, the garage awaits!

Thanks Paul, you've been a great help and a real inspiration for quite a few of the things I've done. I appreciate you taking the time to always answer my questions. When is the Bakersfield Camaro5 meet? I'd love to meet you and see the Freak up close as well! Hopefully it's enough time away to make some plans to attend!!

Thanks for the kind words John! I really appreciate it.

I hope I can have my bumper painted in time... Sucks being out of work.
You're welcome, I enjoy helping out when I can.

Your car has been executed very well. Seriously can't say enough. It's super clean.

The Bakersfield meet is October 20-21.

Here is the link.

Last year was pretty big, this year should be just as big if not bigger.

I hear ya bro about the work issue, so much for all the "change" we heard about from our Pres..

Regarding the Bakersfield meet, that weekend couldn't be more perfect! I'm still an Eagles season ticket holder and last year I still made 6 home games. The weekend of the Meet is the Eagles Bye Week, so it's perfect!! I'm there & I'm sure I can rustle up some SoCal boys to make the trip too!

Thanks again for the compliments bro! Now it's time to do the sound system & the door panel/dash strip mod

Perfect!

Yup!
That reminds me... I had my battery/spare tire pit fill up with water, and it rusted some of my amp connections... I need to go in and replace the fuse box and adapters etc. I got in the car the other day, and the sub-woofer just went nuts on me. The radio was off too, so it startled the $hit out of me haaa! I can't wait to do a full speaker swap.

I have some door panel lighting I plan to do, as soon as I get the cash. It will be custom for sure, and I hope no one else does it before I can. So it's hush hush. I've only told one person what I have planned.

Thanks much Dave, I'm glad you enjoyed reading thread as much as I enjoyed building it. I spent a lot of research to make it right the first time, but it's all trial & error and I learned a lot!!

Well, the wait is finally over.....7 long months without my car, I technically only drove it twice in those 7 months for about a day each time. I made the 185 mile trip back up to the central coast to bring her back home yesterday. I must admit it felt really strange, felt like the first day I got it, but with about 200+ more HP to the wheels ....Simply incredible performance, from acceleration to handling, everything improved dramatically. Stripping the stock suspension was a no brainer with the amount of power we added, and the combination of Pedders, Pfadt & BMR is simply perfect. I thought the car handled good when I drove it off the lot the day I bought it, and now I must admit it rivals the handling of super cars costing a helluva lot more. We have it corner weighted and as close to even on all four corners as you can get. The Pedders Alignment kit, let us really dial in the alignment and the car tracks perfectly.

The ALKY Control Meth kit was a great investment, no knock retard at all and the IAT's are dramatically lower. I averaged roughly 130 degrees on the IAT after driving 185 miles, in roughly 80 degree temps, where normally the IAT's would been 180+ degrees. With the addition I'm looking at roughly a 20% increase in rwhp. It get's dyno'd in 2 weeks, so I'm running a conservative tune right now at 7lbs of boost. The RX Ported Throttle Body was also a great addition with instantaneous throttle response! Great job Tracy & RX!!

I had the pleasure of dusting some sort of M series BMW, they wanted to play as I was cruising the 101 at about 85 in 6th gear, and the passenger gave me the "wanna go look & point" I was happy to oblige and dropped down to 3rd and before I knew it all I saw was their halos and my speedo at 141 in 4th gear with plenty to go before redline...The wife didn't appreciate that story when I told her

I got a nice text from my new brother Leo, with a nice pic too. It read "Your official now brother" See you guys at the next meet Saturday! Time to go clean out the car & set up my custom Emblem Pros emblems

Thank you Solomon, that's a hulleva compliment, I hope I can continue to live up to it!

Got done doing my Emblem Pros custom Black Onyx badges. The ZL is the black onyx metal, but it may not show up too well since today was overcast. I also attached some other pics that haven't been posted yet.
