Ok.

The cold-side charge piping completed, with air diverter panels in place...



Mocking up the bumper and front carbon fiber lip;

The car looks evil!

Absolutely. Like I've previously stated, I have a feeling Eric will be plenty happy on position one.

SSMX, will do! We haven't decided yet if we're selling any NZ1200 components separately or not.

Z28RockStar, only if you bring the puppies and beer.

I think you should definitely sell the rear and front valence separately, we have been waiting for those parts for over a year and you are the first to finally offer them...

Very nice build and awesome power. What size wheels and tires are you going to use to hook that power to the ground?

We'll see how it goes, as of right now; NZ1200 components will not be available for separate purchase. Things change, so we'll see how it all unfolds. I'll make sure to keep you informed if something changes.

The largest we can put in the factory well; 315. With the way the gearing is setup in both the transmission and third member, traction loss will be minimized. However, on the 1,200hp setting, traction will certainly be an issue when the turbochargers come online. 427ci torque and sledge hammer power band makes for an interesting battle for traction at low speeds. On street tires and the 1,200hp setting, I'd consider NZ1200 a second-gear roller. Put some 315 radials on it and it's a different story, obviously. She'd clear daylight under the front tires with the best of them.

Hopefully not as severe as the most recent turbocharged GM we built;



Both cars will have similar power at the wheels, Cookie Monster has about 700lbs less to deal with. I would absolutely love to get NZ1200 on the drag strip with radials. We'll see if Eric wants some straight-line times or not.

Well, Eric just wanted a car he could get it and drive, it's completely understandable. Not to mention, automatic turbocharged cars have a certain allure to them, especially for straight-line performance. I'm a road course racer, and even I love an automatic turbocharged vehicle.

I had a feeling you were on this site.

It was great meeting you, I had a good time talking Camaros! I wish it weren't so busy when you walked in, I'd have liked to show you around a bit more thoroughly.

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!

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)...
