Modern07 - 2013 Summit White ZL1

Got a couple more pictures of my front blackout whilst at a show this weekend - I wanted to do the vinyl to see if I liked the look before getting it painted on - I like it though so will be arranging for it to be painted soon





Noticed a couple of sizable door dings on the passenger door though which I'll need to take care of :/ Hopefully paintless dent repair can sort it

I love the new front black out… really gives the front of the car a new look! Can't wait to see what the car does after the new performance mods!

Thanks

I got the front blackout from a vendor on eBay however I am on my phone at the moment away from home so don't have the link - as soon as I get back I'll post the link for you.

Thank You

I'm really pleased with how it came out and I was surprised how much it changes the look of the car - very easy mod with a big impact and wish I'd done it sooner!

As for the mods - I can't wait but I'm sure my neighbors will be less than thrilled

I've also ordered a line lock and some Mickey Thompson drag radials so it's time to see what this car can really do - hoping to have one of the quickest manuals with LSA but it may need the driver mod before that happens haha!

Mod list looks familiar... can't wait to see it all together.

Are you putting the Mickeys on your 20" stock wheels or something else.

Thanks, and likewise with yours

As for the MT's - the ones I've ordered for now are the 20" to go on my stock wheels, however that is only until I can find a set of replica Z06 fronts and then I'll move to the 18s for track and keep the OEM tires for regular use - I'm just having a real hard time finding the 40 offset anywhere, but I'll keep looking until I do.

Had a couple of arrivals waiting for me at home today....





Gets dropped off for the mods on Sunday - so hopefully the mods plus the above additions will get me to the top of the MFCC fastlist if nothing else!

LMAO!!

You don't believe EVERYTHING Matt tells you do you?!

I merely inquired politely as to whether you had started the modifications process yet - and I was happy to hear that indeed you have

How's the new tune going with the ID850's?

So close but yet so far for me - it's having an alignment done this morning, and then all that's left is for the roll control to be hooked up, then tuning is happening later today - I'm picking it up tomorrow morning - the anticipation is unbearable haha!

And the Facebook video posted my Matt a couple of days ago hasn't helped with that haha!

Modern07 - 2013 Summit White ZL1

So I got the car back today - I've not really stop smiling since!

I'll post a video when I get chance and a photo of the Dyno graph - on a mustang dyno made 701rwhp and 670 TQ

She's certainly a handful now!!

Oh, and of course I'm never actually finished with this car so some more parts have been ordered....

Haha - that'll be the Methanol Injection I guess

Either that or it's the Tri Y's - I think we have everything else the same right?
