Car is still on the way. But all the extras are ordered :-)

So I have the 1ss 1le coming in in Ashen Grey with the Black ZL1 rims.

So in order to get it the way I want it... had to order a few more add ons. As soon as it comes in it'll be getting:

The Street scene Lower Grille and vents and Heritage Billet grille




Anzo Headlights w/ 6k HID


Plasmaglow Blue LED strips (for inside under dash lighting)






Connected to a Keep it clean blue latching switch which will be installed top right of the cup holders




Also will have a Keep it clean Switch attached the the NPP exaust to turn it on and off

A CAI Cold air intake and apex scoop




Elite Catch Can




And of course a Skip Shift eleminator.

Add IN:


Rocker Panels



ACS TL1 Hood






Afterburner 2.0 Lights:



AAC sidemarkers



Vmax Throttle Body



P13w Lights for the DRL








Hmmm and I think there's something else laying around.

Anything else I'm overlooking????

LOL At least I wasn't the only crazy one who had a ton of car parts on my pool table before I had the car.

Have fun with it!!

You'll end up wanting headers most likely. I did Kooks LTs and love the sound now with the dual mode.

Maybe a ported throttle body too...

What is up with everyone getting smaller HIDs? I like the size of my current stock RS ones, they are the perfect size Halo.

He is getting the 1SS, does't come with the HID option. Also, the dual mode is ok, usually have to be pretty deep in the throttle to hear it. Doesn't give that muscle car rumble at idle or below 3k RPM. You will be disappointed.

Not true. You can get the RS package on either trim model, 1SS or 2SS doesn't matter.

I'm doing a fuse pull - but putting a switch in so this way I can turn it on and off (bass sometimes gives me headaches - so longer car rides I can control it)

I have the 1le package - Comes with rims. The RS package - comes with rims. They don't take off price with rims - so the 1500 didn't seem worth it when I can get the same for less than 1/2 the price!

You stink, hopefully I will have all of that done by the end of the summer! Anyways, don't get to mod happy. ride her around a bit before any mods so then you can appreciate the HorsePower gains from the mods, one, at, a, time.

I would put the catch can on at the dealership though don't want the engine to be gunked up, and since you have it. might as well get your moneys worth and put it on as soon as possible!

Very true - I'm assuming it's a pretty easy install? Haven't even looked yet (since it's still coming in the mail)

You aren't the only one. I usually talk to someone every few days that has a car on order and is already accumulating parts for it.

I guess it all makes sense. Anything else you can think of Chase? Pretty much went from top to bottom on your site. I don't think I'm getting to into HP gainers - anything that requires maintenance (as far as blowers etc) I'm not really into. But any small things that make a difference I'm definitely interested in.

lots of "lights and lighting" upgrades for these cars...instead of HP and handling upgrades

I guess I'm just old school

1SS is the way to go on these cars....
