It is far, but im going this year. Missed it last year and I hated looking at all the pictures. The cruise up there looks like the best part to me haha.

Ive been telling them they need to have one down here at our track in New Orleans, its a world class track and close to Texas and Florida, where C5 has tons of members.

www.nolamotor.com

But a ton of the people on here are from the West Coast too. They should just have it circulate between the North-ish, South, and West each year.

Yea i know what you mean its not that far from you but its a good 2 day drive from me so thats why and then I have to take off a ton of work and i just cant swing it, the circulation thing is a great idea that should be brought up. But on another note man youre going to have a blast going this year I hope its a fun one and you have to take a ton of pics haha

The exact same thing happened to me with the Stillen side skirts, and the whole damn kit to be honest. I'll never order a single part from Stillen again. Their parts fit like crap, and the paint doesn't adhere well. I'm sure they'll be quick to say, "it's the painters fault", but it's not.

At least they'll look good man .

Dramatically thinking about making an amazing dumb decision haha I want to super charge the engine but in order to do o I'm going to heavily need to cut out mods for awhile or I can take the money from my tax returns and finish the rest of the exterior the way I want it nd wait for a year or so, until after the wedding and the warranty is up, and then supercharge it... What are your guys thoughts???

Great job on your ride I would complete your vision of finishing off the exterior than go from there.

I am doing that, doing all my exterior mods I want, plus the CAI and eventual headers, then I will do any warranty-voiding ones later on down the road.
I dont have time to go to the track right now anyway, so i have enough power for cruising around and going to work. Car-wise, Im a showoff and I like attention anyway so i lean towards exterior and interior mods before performance anyway, unless its a real bang for your buck deal like headers and intake.

Yea I think that's what I'm going to do overall is probably finish all my cosmetic stuff and then once I get her absolutely perfect and have her exactly how I want it I can do the super charger or turbo thanks guys for your input

bingo ! thats the way to do it brotha because otherwise you do pieces here and there and it just wont feel the same, thats the way I did it, started out with exterior,then suspension,then interior, and now sound
