Your Z06 was awesome. Curious as to why you sold it to get the ZL1.

The Carbon was a fantastic car, I liked everything about it and I do miss it but I'd sold my 2ss vert and my 1lt RS (which is what my wife drove) to help buy it. In the end I had one of the best cars I've ever owned but I'd sold all my Camaros. I love Corvettes but deep down I'm a camaro guy, I've owned over a dozen f-body's and a 5th gen for every year they've been in production, I need a camaro in my life lol.
So I sold the vet even though it pained me, placed an order for a ZL1 as the platform for what I decided to make (in my eyes) the ultimate Camaro. A 9 sec daily driver that drives smooth as factory. Oh and I bought the wife a 2ss 45th vert. The gentleman that now owns my Carbon gets all his work done at 510 Race Engineering so I still get to see it at least. Of course I gave my friend Randy specific instructions that Rubeus is to walk away from my old Carbon when we go out to track days
Of course I'll be first in line to place an order for a C7 ZR1(or the equivalant if the trim were to change) when they become available. It'll be beautiful parked next to my fast car jk. But I won't be selling Rubeus XIII to pay for it, I need to have a Camaro and besides I do rather prefer the camaro when I put in around 60 or miles on it a day.

Mike,

Small update, all my parts are on the way but I was just notified that my larger intercooler from Livernoise is two weeks out. It's a popular item right now so they are jammin to fill the orders. My other parts should be in by next week but I'll be playing the waiting game for the intercooler. So in the mean time I'm going to do a couple more aesthetic things and hell just enjoy this awesome piece of GM engineering. Just broke 1000 miles on the odometer, think I'm actually going to make it through break in before the tear down, will still have paper plates though lol.

Mike,

Thanks everyone for checking in on my thread. Small update today, 510 Race Engineering got all my parts in from Livernoise today so we are only waiting on the Longtubes from ARH. We did a pull on the dyno this morning to get my stock numbers before we get started but do to some minor problems with the dyno (wasn't reading correctly) we will be doing it again on Monday on a different dyno so we have accurate prebuild numbers to go from.
So a small set back but no big deal, on the plus side I have some pics and a short vid. Hope you guys enjoy, much better video to come when we do the pull again Monday, this is just a quick shot from my phone.

Thanks again guys,

Mike,

How about start a thread on Wifey's (NOXs) build while we're waiting on yours to get done. An auto drop top SS that eats CTS-Vs.
