Well with tax time approaching will be doing a few changes to the car. Will be switching up the rims for a set of TSW Mirabea black with chrome lip in 20x9 and 20x10.5. Also going with a 275/315 Nitto invo tire combo. Upgrading to 6k hid's and grantelli wires. Will be getting my leather seats installed. Then will go from there depending on how much is left lol.

Well just a few updates.....I am upgrading my tires to a 275/315 nitto invo combo....have some underhood goodies coming from showstopper accessories....rs abm painted roof ditch molding....metco billet tensioner pulley....all of which I am waiting to come in. I did just get in my real carbon fiber dash kit from remin. I will only be using a few pieces and have sold the remainder to a fellow member here. Will have to get a little warmer before these get put on. but thought I would show some close ups of how the kit comes.

Just ordered from Alan at G3 composites a set of carbon fiber a pillar posts and a set of carbon fiber side bolster seat covers (pieces on driver and passenger side that have the seat controls on them). cant wait to get them and put them on..should tie in nicely with the remin dash kit pieces I am going to install once the weather warms up.

Thank you for the compliments....I am trying to get it to where I want it slowly but surely. I am really excited to get those pieces from Alan. I have been following that thread....it turned out really nice on your car. Wish I had the time to do somthing like that myself.

Well I got some exciting news today...just scheduled my appointment with Tick Performance in Mt. Airy, NC. Will be dropping off my car in two weeks when I head to the auto fair in Charlotte. Will be going with a ls3 polluter cam package and the 1le 3.91 gear set. Can't wait to get this done!!!! Should sound awesome and perform when it comes back

Just an update....this past Friday I dropped off my car at Tick Performance in Mt. Airy, NC. They had some really nice rides they were working on and their new facility is quite large. I am really excited about the install and cannot wait to get it back. They are suppose to get some idle and dyno vids for me so stay tuned...

The drag strip is like sniffing glue, it's cheap, it's a decent buzz, it doesn't last long and they are all the same.
Road racing is like China White Heroin, the buzz is stronger, the high lasts for hours, it's extremely addictive and they are all different.
I can't wait for my next
Track fix.

Get rid of that K&N Cai and get a Halltech or CAI and you will get you extra 10 hp, or more, right there. With the scoop you might gain a few more HP.

OK, now a video of it revved up and a full bore fly by. I bet she SCREAMS!!!!

Nice gains.
