I apologize guys, it's been especially hectic around here lately with all the projects going on, I'm just now getting around to updating this thread. Granted, there's not a huge amount to update with, as wiring is only so entertaining, but I'll update what I can.

The rear valence fitted, not permanently installed...



Chris working on the breather box...





Fitting in place...





Filters in place, almost finalized...



Just for fun, while the valve covers were off at powder coating, I had to snap this picture...



Chris Crawford (veee8) and Ben Salasko working on the wiring for transmission control/automatic conversion and the Variable Power On Demand switch...





The wheels ready to have the tires mounted...



315/30R20 Nitto NT-05 mounted...







Very aggressive tread...



The wheels really set the car off, they look beautiful...







It looks excellent from the rear...

Heck yeah! I just put some NT05s on this week and went to the dragstrip last night. Even though they aren't the NT05R's, they hooked up really nice and they have better treadwear than the softer compound. Nice choice guys!

Can't wait to see this finished. Some amazing work done on this car. I have to say this thing belongs in a museum its ARTWORK.

Great to hear that review. We fought much with which tires to go with on this vehicle, due to its versatility. The Nitto NT-05s will offer good performance in all conditions, not focused too much on one. Obviously, if the car's going to be heading to the track, a set of 315 radials would be a great idea.

We certainly appreciate the kind words.

The breather box almost complete, heading to powder coating now...



Just a few documentation shots of the wiring below. Ben is an absolute artist with wiring, every bit of wiring he does is in this manner, very clean. Any wiring done in the vehicle is easy to identify by this quality...

During the process;

Ben getting ready to knock a few harnesses out...



Exposed...



Shrink wrapped and protected, ready for installation...



The boost control solenoids setup, wired and ready for installation...



To be secured somewhere under the cowl, with the transmission control components as well...



Now, this enclosed module here is something integral that Ben was able to come up with. Essentially, the clutch pedal on these Camaros is not as simple as an open switch like most older vehicles, it actually utilizes two separate potentiometers for pedal position. Meaning? Ben had to design a module to simulate potentiometer operation for the automatic conversion. This is that module...

The intake and charge system back from powder coating, going back together.

(apologies, I couldn't for the life of me get a clear picture from this angle)

From the front...



From the rear...

(note, the turbocharger intakes follow behind the bumper cover to the fender wells)



Where the turbocharger intake filters route, nice and high, sheltered from the elements (once the splash shields are in place);

Passenger side, no splash shield in place...





Driver side, splash shield in place...





Engine oil cooler converted from a wet housing cooler to independent air cooler, mounted front and center of the lower grill (please note, the intercooler and transmission cooler recieve the majority of their air flow from the upper grill)...

What tires did you decide to go with on the fronts?
