WOWWWWWWW! Congrats on the new one and hell of a colour you picked their but hey I'm not biased
But still can't believe your parting with Gretchen. Can't wait to see what you do to the LFX but kinda sad for the LLT. Almost like we just lost hope since Gretchen is the one who started this all really. Regardless can't wait to see the build and congrats again and welcome to the pumpkin patch!!

Not going to go real drastic to begin with. We want to get a nice clean tune for about 8-9 psi on 93 octane. Then we are going to see if we can tune it at the same boost for E85. If that works out we'll get some forged pistons and lower the CR to about 10:1 and go for bigger boost.

Good luck with the new build Gretchen, it was amazing what you did with the LLT. Would be pretty badass to see you get the LFX in the 10's or 11's. If the LFX has that much potential it really makes me wish I would of waited the extra 1 month to get it (I got my LLT in July of last year).

Today I took ownership of a 2012 2LT/RS LFX. Ryan has already connected to it with EFI Live and is working with them on a few tweaks for the transmission connectivity.

The plan is to do some base pulls and then let them develop a stock tune. After that we will start the twin turbo build anew.

Right now Ryan's taking all the good parts off my car to swap what we can. I'll post a link to my classified ad for the parts I can use (like ported heads, ported intake manifold, shorty headers, intake isolator, etc..), so keep an eye out for that you LLT guys.

And now for some pics of the new ride.

Just a quick thought on the new car.

I remember when I first test drove the 2010 that I was impressed with the suspension. It was the first Camaro I had ever driven that seemed to cut the curves. Well, all I can say is I really miss those upgraded suspension parts and can't wait to get them on this one. The body roll is very noticable in the 2012 compared to the way I had the 2010 setup.

Gotta be a female name. Thought of Gretchen 2, but probably best not to tempt fate with the wife again.

I was thinking Aura -- Greek Goddess of the breezes, but it would be nice if it started with an O.

Will certainly keep that one in mind.

Some good ideas. Can't use Bertha because that was my last truck's name. Like where you guys are going though. May have to do a poll once we get some more ideas.

Actually there are three references. Hamlet, the Addams family, and the movie Trading Places. I prefer the last as Jamie Lee Curtis played a hooker named Ophelia.
