VMAX Throttle Body

I got my VMAX Throttle body today!


Here is a side by side comparison:

Yes--I painted the VMAX Throttle Body




Painted and installed in 30 minutes!

I can't say I feel a big difference but I hope to see an improvement on the track next year.

36000 Miles

Hit the 36000 mile mark today on the way to work.

7 more miles on my bumper to bumber warranty - So far soooo good!
No major problems and the little things that did come up were taken care of by the dealer. I still love my car!

Snow What--I'm Driving

My crazy drive home in Michigan:


And home safe. I love those Pirelli Snow and Ice tires.


Interestingly, I also saw a white Challenger. Good for him too.

Your car and my CGM car #8675 came down the line together. Yours would actually be one of the very first CGM Camaros... mine was #43.

They were delivered the exact same time too...

Edit: Now that I've had a chance to Read the Thread... WoW very nice work you've done... Can't say enough about how nice this car is. Kudos... Can't believe I've missed it all this time...

It might be premature, but the weather has been so unseasonably warm that I'm taking a chance. I switched to summer tires.

That is the nicest engine cover mod I've seen. How did the plastic dip work out for you? How thick is it and did it leave any residue?
