Thanks Tim! It was one hell of a drive, I give those truckers credit! It's actually my same house, we just leased it for 2 years while we were in Cali, so it was like walking back into a time warp!

This GM National invite is a good thing, but the bad thing is it's going to make me spend more money on the car!!

Thanks P, I thank the man above you, Tim, for that hook up! That place, In The News does an awesome job with them, nothing but first class from the day I called. You like the CF front lip? I had a lip on there before, but the first auto transport company put a gouge in it and broke one of my Oracle side markers, then told me they wouldn't take the car cause they didn't want to be liable for any more damage. But they paid to for the damage, and the second company was perfect with the car.


So now I have a month from today to get her ready for the GM Nationals, time to break out the credit card


So I went to my new shop here in NJ, Tune Time Performance and what an operation they have! Matt, the owner has had his Camaro featured in GMHTP, as well as many other Vettes, Camaros, etc, as he had about 30 plaques like mine all over the shop. And their lot was filled with some mean machines! All great people, and I look forward to working with them. Big thanks to forum member and shop employee, Joe@TuneTime for reaching out to me and setting everything up

I'm not sure about what I'm going to do about the Meth tank in the rear because on that pic I posted earlier, is exactly where I have my sub & the other side is the Amp board, so I may just leave it stealth in the windshield fluid bottle for now. We're going to retune this week since the gas on the EC is so much better than the WC, I'm using 94 octane and with the Torco, hitting about 100 octane. So it'll be interesting to see how much more power we get from my old tune. I'll post it when I get it.

My last run in Cali




Some of Tune Times eye candy


This is a 900 HP GMC Sierra with about $75K in mods




A REAL BEAST ZR1!!!








This one looks familiar! Getting my stance adjusted

Hey bud looks like the car is coming along quite nicely. Dunno I always felt like the run from the trunk to the engine was too long for the meth. I was going to do a dedicated fuel system for my nitrous in a similar way but opted for the custom engine bay piece from nitrous outlet instead.

Tune Time has a pretty nice shop I was at their open house car show. Was running low on the juice so I didn't make a run on the dyno, didn't want to wait long enough to get my trophy LOL . Only thing I didn't like was their dyno I'd never hook it up with my wheels and tires which is why I like the dynapak dyno at ECS. Either way bud looking forward to catching a glimpse at this car soon.

This invite to the GM Nationals is making me spend more money!!! But I just picked up 2 more sponsors so that helps. Ordered a bunch of Black Billet interior pieces, and pete from Showstoppers & Roger from Emblem Pros are making me some special things! Great guys!

Getting this rear deck lid in Imperial Metallic Blue since my trunk has blue LEDs and my halos also have blue and doing the calipers powder coated to match. This is just their image. Got it with the 2 LEDs also. They'll have a booth at the Nationals as well.



I love the guys at Tune Time, Matt really knows his stuff and they're great guys to work with, and I've never seen a cleaner shop in my life. And it's not because they have a shortage in business, they're packed up! More good people & I'm so glad I'm going there!


Chris (xVengencex) & I are hard at work for that something special, that we hope you'll be involved in.....
We'll be seeing each other soon bro. I just checked NJ DMV and my Cali SSYNSTR plate is available here!! and I so is MYHOE for the Tahoe, but I wonder if they'll shoot it down thinking the Hoe part?

P, I thought I was done with this mod fever, but then I realized for the 100th time, that it never stops! The only thing that was left stock on the car were the brakes, and since I doubled the HP capacity of a stock Camaro, I figured the wise thing to do is upgrade them, even though they only have 3K on them.

After doing my research (you know how I love research ) it just didn't make sense not to upgrade the brakes, it's a big difference slowing down a 380 RWHP Camaro, than a 700+ RWHP one


Some pics I was sent, it's crazy how many pics of my ZLX are out there floating in cyber land....Even the Hoe gets face time!

Thanks Lil' Bro, I'm pretty damned psyched at the GM National invite, then I come home today and find this below in my inbox!!!



So as I always think of things to add, even though I say I'm done I had ordered a Cipher Auto Harness Bar & Cipher Auto 4 point harnesses last week since I'm within 40 minutes of 3 kick ass tracks, Atco, Englishtown & the new one in Millville, and I'm going start racing again. So I thought maybe seats, so I happened to stumble across Corbeau Racing seats, and as I'm glancing over their site I see a Sponsorship tab, click it, read the requirements and fill out the application and emailed it last week. Honestly, I thought I wasn't getting it cause I never heard back, until I got this email 20 minutes ago!!! Hell ya!!!!! Some people have to pay thousands for seats, I'm getting my choice for repping the company! I'll throw a sticker on the car & bring swag to the events, I know the deal! This was like hitting the lottery!

Now what seats to get?
Maybe I'll post some options and you guys can help me decide

Sure is going to be tough when the new Stingray comes out, but I look at it this way, the mags, the sponsors, the Nationals invite all increase the value




John,

We are pleased to inform you that your application for sponsorship has been reviewed and accepted for a full sponsorship. At Corbeau we take great pride in those cars that we sponsor. We receive hundreds of sponsorship inquiries each week and only a select few are accepted.

Along with the seats you will receive, we will also provide you with promotional material as you travel to different shows, races and events. We will also serve as a reference for any other sponsors you are seeking. Once you have installed the seats in your vehicle, we will place pictures of your car on the "Team Corbeau" website, thus giving you added exposure.

We would like to discuss the details of the sponsorship with you over the phone. Please take time this weekend to review our products and decide on what you would like to order. DO NOT CALL UNTIL MONDAY. Once you call we will give you more information about your sponsorship with us. Again, we thank you for choosing Corbeau and we are confident in the success these products will bring you.

Sincerely,

Axxxxxx Mxxxxxx
Phone: XXX-XXX-XXXX, Ext. XXXX (Didn't think it was necessary to post his name)
http://www.corbeau.com


I must admit, quite a few good things have happened since I moved back to NJ from Cali May 1st. I just wish my best bro was alive to experience it with me. I know he's looking down and smiling, but I just wish he were here....This build was for you bro, RIP Timmy(Pictured on left)

Hey J i'm sure he's proud of you and the most important thing is to keep the good and positive memories you have of him like that smile he has and remember what you taught me "we only live once", really happy for ya that good things are happening and i'm sure greater things are cominn your way ,you're a great person J and you deserve all the best bro, as for the seat choice my vote would be the new Z28 seats look sick and i think they can house the cypher kit beautifully.
