Thank you Pierre, Luke, Leo & RC!! Your comments are much appreciated(and maybe a little exaggerated) And it's been an awesome time doing this build & sharing it with everyone, this place ROCKS There's so many wicked C5's here, it was my inspiration!

RC this is all I have right now for the rear, but there will be PLENTY MORE pics coming soon!

Haven't updated the thread due to some life issues....Enjoy life people, it's short!


Here's a new Billet pulley I got from RX, that I'll be installing today.




It will replace the stock black plastic pulley


Here's more detailed pics of the ALKY Control Meth system, we mounted everything pretty stealth and even remolded the stock washer bottle with a heat gun because of clearance from the ZL1 brake ducts.



The bottle on the right is the new windshield wiper fluid bottle, Meth in the Stock bottle



Meth injector under the intake tube



Meth tube from bottom of washer bottle



ALKY Control Pump mounted under front fender wall



Top quality parts used on the ALKY Control Meth kit, highly recommend it for blown motors.






Painted long center console strips to match other parts painted by Lupe of River City Creations, he does awesome work









Next up is some custom engine covers & radiator shroud from Pete @ Showstoppers, hopefully will be here this week. Then later in the week, off to get Dyno Tuned!

Thanks Pierre! I was thinking about the halo's, good idea! You did your's yourself right? Maybe you could send me a PM on which brand you used & about the install if you don't mind.

Thanks P! Had to change since the car didn't even look like the old sig anymore. That's the handy work of my Jersey bro Chris, I love his skills!

Cali thing bro? I take it the Po-Po don't like the red halos? I guess I won't be driving around with my red & white LED scanners on that are mounted behind the grille.....Could definitely pull someone over at night with them

Well, the mod bug didn't take long to bite me in the ass. Went to go see Mike Haddad @ Haddad's Speed Shop yesterday, what an awesome guy.

Here's what's coming up:
3.2 Pulley for Maggie
ZR1 Plugs
ZR1 MAP Sensor
Dyno Tune
Billet Idler Pulley
And the BIG Daddy: Kooks Headers with Hi-Flow Cats, I just dropped them off to Specialized Coatings in Huntington Beach for a Ceramic Coating in powder coated Matte Black, good for another 50-60 HP which will bring me probably over 700 RWHP

Also in the mail: Showstoppers Battery Post cover, ABS Cover, Brake reservoir cover & Radiator Front end Shroud
Paid in Full: Oracle Concept Mirrors with Ghosted LEDs

What's in the box!

According to Mike Haddad of Haddad's Motorsports, everything should be fine. The only thing that may go eventually is the axles, but he said the differential, drive shaft, etc are more than capable of handling the power. It's also how you drive also. I baby my car and don't abuse it, so if something ever does break, I'll upgrade it then, but he's pretty confident it won't.
