I just dropped my car off at Karl's Performance to have the headers installed and swap out a couple pulleys. I also decided to have a cam installed since they will have most of the front end tore apart. I will be on vacation for a couple weeks so they will keep it there until I get back. Ryan is going to send me the video of the tune and I will post it after I get it if he doesn't do it before me. I can hardly wait to hear this beast after all the performance upgrades!

Nice! I just got my Z a couple weeks ago and only has 900 miles on it. I think LT's, High Flows and a cam are in my near future :( LOL

Just bought some parts from a Camaro5 member (CVP33), I bought the logo windscreen, logo floor mats with the red border and the trunk liner sign in chrome with Camaro and ZL1 logo on it. I will post pics after I get them, on vacation for two weeks!

Pfadt headers, cam and pulleys installed

Got the Pfadt Y-Series headers installed by Karl's Performance along with a new GT-9 cam and new pulleys. Sounds and runs amazing!! Here is a video of the before and after of the exhaust.

Reverse LED lights and new JL speakers

Yesterday I pulled off the rear end to install some new high power reverse LEDs from Diode Dynamics from their web site, however they didn't fit at all. Called them and they said they don't have any for the 2013 ZL1 yet. That really sucked and was a pain in the ass. So since I'm still on vacation for a couple more days I went ahead and swapped out the door speakers I had waiting to replace with the stock speakers. That took most of the day, installed some JL 6.5's and new tweeters with crossovers. I had already swapped out the rear 3.5's with new JL's in the rear seat area. System sounds really good, of course I'm still listening to the new exhaust that is really loud now!

I'm going to be ordering the VMAX throttle body from Florida Speed and then have it powder coated black. The weather is really starting to change with not much time now to drive the car with the top down. Pretty neat to see the guy up the street just bought a new black SS.

Good and bad day all in one!!

A really good day and bad day all in one. It was one year ago today that we got our car delivered to our door. Today, I also got my first ticket for tint and plates. The tint is to dark according to the cops tint meter and my chrome license plate surround is covering the county I live in at the bottom of the plate. This ticket is going to cost me $127.50. It's almost time to put the car away for the winter. I'm going to pull allot of stuff off during the winter and have them hydro-dipped.

I just ordered the "mydipkit" and I'm going to give this carbon fiber hydro dipping process a try on some small interior pieces. I will take pictures of the before and after to let everyone know how it went. Looks pretty easy from all the how to videos out there.

Camaro jacket!!

Received my Camaro jacket today from Camaro5 member (CanadianZL1#992), boy does it look good. He said I would like it and yes, I really like it! A big thank you to him and all the work he does for all of us ZL1 owners.

Hood insert

I just pulled my insert off and I'm sending it to G3 Composites to be wrapped with carbon fiber and have it clear coated. It was signed on the bottom, looked pretty neat.

My insert is painted gray on top. They can't remove the paint without destroying the carbon fiber under neath. I will have some carbon fiber layered over the top. I was actually looking at the possibility of some sort of clear window being installed. Never heard back from ACS composites about my question.

Exhaust sound

It was a nice day out so I started the car up and let it run for a while.

Parts removed for hydro-dipping

Iv'e got my front end ready to remove the bumber so I can remove the lower splitter and send it to Fastlane (H2O Printers) to be hydro-dipped. Also removed my lower side skirts to be hydro=dipped. Fastlane is currently doing my rear lower valance right now and should be done late next week. I will of course take some pics when it arrives. I'm going to do some of my interior parts myself. I ordered the carbon fiber (mydipkit) and it looks really good on some test pieces I did. I also ordered some LED lights to install on the inside of my door handles to come on with the dome lights, I'll take pics of that also.

Bill
