dekan513 build thread 2010 rs/2ss nitrous car

To start off im way behind on this just figured i would try to remember what ive done and when.
The wife and i was lookin for a cyber grey A6 car cause she cant drive a stick at the time, so we took a day and just went lookin had no intentions of buying at the time. So i first looked at the car i have now and i loved it but it was a M6 and low miles , exacly what i was lookin for. she was not digging it so we took off and went to probably 10+ lots to find nothing that took both our interest. So she was like lets go back to the red M6 . IT was history from there.
i bought my 2010 ss ls3 on feb, 14 2012 the car had 6,578 miles on the clock.
after getting it home i instantly started lookin for mods.
the first night i ordered a axel back magnaflow comp 2.5 exhaust and a volant intake.
about a week later i got them and installed. made the car sound nice. not to loud and not much drone.
but as we all know that never enuff.
so i contacted ted at jannety racing , got a tune. bye bye warranty

about 3 weeks down the road i had done alot of reading on how much headers helped these cars , so i done a lil research on the obx brand and thats what i went with.
It took me about 2 hours to install them in my driveway. I cranked the car up an wow it was loud , like super loud , remind u this has no cats and basically a straight pipe with the factory h pipe. i drove it like that for about a week. i got compliments like crazy but i know it was bothering my neighbors.(which is my grandmother on 1 side and my mom and dad on the other) so i talked to magnaflow and they said i would probably like the same thing i got but with a resonated x pipe. i didnt think it would make much difference but they assured me. so i ordered the cat back magnaflow comp 2.5 with resonated x. Changed them out and it was much better but still loud when wot. (sounds awesome).
so i ended up giving my old exhaust to my mother who has a 2011 ss A6. After talkin to her about fixing her car up a lil she wanted a intake. she loved the look of the volant intake on mine and she thought it looked good with the engine cover so , i bought a k&n intake and give her the volant. cause i was gonna take my cover off and clean under the hood up (ty nathan for the cleanin the engine bay thread). Anyway i got the car running and sounding good , next step the outside need to set me apart from the other local camaros. i put the phantom grill upper and lower and mail slot in. but it still wasnt enuff . So i was gonna powdercoat my wheels back and a member told me about plasti dip. (good stuff) so i dipped my wheels and my lower front bumper and tail light bezals. next was i didnt want nothing but clear black and red on my car . I bought the tint for the side markers and tail lights and got clear bulbs for the front singals, and the fog lights. I got the drl wiring harness too. so i was satisfied with the looks.

Next i took my car to our local 1/8 airport armdrop race and had a blast ,the car did well for what it was but i wasnt happy cause i wasnt where i thought i needed to be. so i started lookin for a cam. At first i was all about the lg g5x3 , it a great cam but i was afraid i would regret not going bigger. so i talked to a few ppl on here and alot loved the g6x3 but some didnt like the drivability so. i talked to a friend that does installs a ls guru. he thought i should go with the g5 cause the wife like to drive the camaro but hadnt learned to drive a stick good yet. but i still ended up with the g6x3 and wow biggggg diff for a cam. I was afraid at first of the it going to drive like crap. but it does fine and she can drive it better accually cause the idle is at 950 -1000 and helps her pull out. car made 462/423 in 107 degree shop temps after a 2 hour drive. i was happy.

idle and low rev clip
