So I know it was been a while since this thread has been updated and now that I actually have some more mods coming in i thought it was the right time.

Since last time i have removed the Camaro Letters from my windshield and got my MRTs V2 Which i love. They have the sound i was looking for and i have gotten a ton of compliments on them. I do have drone on the highway in the 70MPH area. Doesnt bug me that much though

Here are some pictures of what my car looks like currently







And some pictures of my V2s

So the first weekend of March marked the second annual Sunshine State Rally and i had a blast going down there. And on top of all the fun Bee was able to bring in 1st Place for 2010 V6s Very happy to have won especially that this was my first time ever getting judged

Dont mind the bad pictures of the trophy on the engine. It was very windy that day and i could only place it there take a quick picture before it fell over and possibly break or scratch a neighboring car





Also here are a few random pictures of my car during the Rally

Now while at the rally I did get a great price on my Hotchkis Strut Tower Brace thanks to Erik over at Torq. Took a while longer to install that i thought and was much more work that i had planned for but over all i like the brace and i feel a difference while going through some curves at higher speeds. The Car feels much more planted and stable in my opinion.

Here are some pictures

Now I did have the Rx Catch Can but for some reason my car was running rich and even experiencing some suddle misfires. Nothing that tripped a CEL but i could feel them while at a light. So Tracy being the Stand up guy he is stepped up to the plate offered multiple ways to help out and even offering a complete refund. After several months with the same issue I took him up on his offer for the refund and got the Elite Can from Apex. Ultimately what made me choose this can is the draining method. I personally prefer this over the Rx can but I am not trying to turn down any products. I guess i will find in time if the Elite will trap the oil like the Rx can.

Here is a pictures of the Elite Can installed.

Got some new rotors and pads coming in soon. Been wanting this for while since the V6s breaks suck when compared to that of the SS.

Next round of mods started to come in. Just recieved my R1 e-line drilled and slotted rotors and just waiting on my hawk pads. Will be busy for the next couple of weeks so I won't be able to install them till about the second or third week of April

So since i havent had any mods in a while and since i am also still waiting on my Hawk pads to come in i thought i would give this build thread some life with my recent Adams Purchase. I took the plunge with their spring sale and ordered almost everything i will need to correct my paint and get it looking amazing.

Heres a picture of all of the products. I can't wait till i can get this done. But I will wait for the pollen to be gone before i do it.

So today I was able to get my R1 Rotors and Hawk HPS Pads installed. Took a little over an Hour and a Half form start to finish. I made sure to really heat up the pads once they were in to make sure i had no problems in the future with noise and to make sure they were Burnished well into the rotors. I actually could smell the pads and even saw a little amount of smoke. As of right now with the little bit i have driven i can definitely tell that it stops much quicker and the pedal definitely has a tougher and nicer feel to it. All in all I am very glad that I did this mod and I am much more confident with the breaking of the car now.

Here are some pictures:

Those rotors look GREAT. Adding this to my next round of mods. Regardless how much brake is left on my stock set-up. New rotors and pads. Thanks for the write-ups.
