Hey T, it's gotta help with the resale value if I pull the trigger on a C7 right?

Haha, the sooner the better since these cars are still "hot" in people's eyes. As long as you can get a C7 for a good price you are golden. If I decided to sell my ride, and couldn't get a good enough total price for it including mods, I'll part it out so I can sell all the mods to recoup money much easier, then buy my C7. Lol

The C7 won't be available before beginning 2014 IMO .

Isn't that the truth with car mods . I always try to expect the unexpected because if uncertainty can happen, it will happen in the automotive aftermarket industry. Good luck man, and hopefully you'll get it back soon enough.

Well, when I brought the car to Ryne Cunningham of Cunningham Motorsports for the cam, injectors, etc..install, I told him I wanted him to go over the car with a fine toothed comb, because his reputation is by far one of the best on the West Coast working with LS engines, Vettes & Camaros. Granted I added a few things while he had it, he discovered I had the dreaded Magnusin Valley Pan Leak.

See this thread: http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=162281


22oo miles on the car and 1000 since Supercharged, and being new to the area and his rep, I wanted him to just give me peace of mind because 2 different shops did work on it, and neither discovered this....That's why he's the best! I remember when I first read that thread months ago, I PM'd Magnuson and they told me not to worry, because when I bought mine the fix was already done.......REALLY?

So now Maggie sent a new Valley pan, but Ryne went to Monmouth boarding till Monday, so I have to wait, but I really don't care because he found an issue that could've been really F**KED up!!! Now you know why I'm contemplating the ZR1. So when I get it back, it'll be god as new, well F**K it is new!!! But I'll have no worries, I made a great friend in Ryne, and now have an AWESOME tuner/engine builder and the car will be 100%. SO that's the deal.

Thank you IBM, the field of vision is phenomenal!!! 1000% better than the stock mirrors!!

There's another supplier of the Oracle Concept mirrors, Antidote Performance, one of my sponsors. I have to shoot out there tomorrow and can get you a price on the mirrors, painted or unpainted, if you like. Just shoot me a PM.

Any update with the car John? Hopefully the leak is settled, and the engine is fully built again.

Actually have a couple of them, being in SoCal at the moment, there's car shows and events almost every weekend. It's basically just a form of advertising for them. I've been on this build over a year, and every time I say I'm going to stop and enjoy it, I just want to do more, live the DSS Carbon Fiber Drive Shaft, 1400HP Half Shafts & Hammerhead IRS. Those are things that are only going to act as insurance because of the HP I'm pushing. Believe it or not, I only have 2200 miles on it and it's spent more time in a shops garage, than mine. But I had a vision of what I wanted to accomplish and I figured just get 'er dun!!

So when it is ready for the show circuit & track, I have a show board and it'll have all my sponsors on it, and like I said, it's just basically advertising for them, which I don't mind cause I either get free stuff, free work or deeply discounted products.

T, Ryne found out about the Valley Pan leak on Wednesday and Magnuson overnighted him the part needed. Kind of pissed at Maggie, because when I read that thread last year, I emailed Maggie and asked if this was something I should be worried about and they were adamant that mine was made after they found out about it. So tomorrow I'm calling SLP and letting them know what's up and I'm a little disappointed in them.

I'm just very thankful that I went to LS Engine expert Ryne Cunningham of Cunningham Motorsports and he spent so much free time looking at everything on the car to get to know it, and at the same time do the cam & injector+++ installs, because I told him he's going to be the only one from now on that touches the car. He went snowboarding at Monmouth over the weekend and I told them from the beginning there was no rush, just wanted perfection, and that's what he's giving me, but on that note I should be picking it up Wednesday, but then another appointment at Antidote! Then when it's finally back home, I have to bring it to a potential sponsor who's trying to talk me into the Lambo doors, I want a custom paint job & like I tld you & IB something with the seats, then maybe then I'll be don......nah, not even going to say it!

That's bitchin man! That is great news, and everything is coming together. Maggie should have fessed up and told you the potential issue up front, and I would be disappointed in them as well. That's definitely not the way to do things. At least everything is settled. I bet you can't wait to get it home already, and enjoy it.
