Cool

I used a Fine Tip Fabric marker (DecoFabric) u can get one at any arts & crafts store like "Hobby Lobby" or "Michael's" for about 3 bucks. (one marker is more than enough to do the whole car)
Use a damp rag with a bucket of warm water to wipe off the stitchings after applying the paint, 'Don't let it dry'.

I'm pretty happy with my "Airaid". I like the big "O" filter and that it uses the factory intake scoop to bring fresh air directly to the Air Box.
There's a lot of good CAI out there, It all comes down to personal preference. Some plp said that metal intake tubes get hotter than plastic, others said that plastic takes longer to cool down. Just do your home work and search for there performance, HP and Torque gain of the ones you like. Most of this companies had Dyno graphics to back up there claims. Also compare the price, why pay $100's more to gain 1 or 2 more ponies.
Apex got the Airaid on sale for $299.95
(http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=121476) I paid $332.

I just want to thank Chris from "CC Performance".

I got my MSD Spark Plug Wire Set and the NGK-TR55 V-Power Spark Plugs "today".

I was going to keep my OEM wires and put some Heat Protection Sleeve to protect them from the headers, but there were $55 bucks!
Chris "Hook Me Up" with a set of "MSD 8.5mm Superconductor wires w/ NGK-TR55 plugs for $68 delivered". (MSD wires are multiangle and better heat resistant)
Hard to beat that price!

Just took me like 2 hrs (+/-).
Do a few inches at a time,
take a break (smoke a cigarette)
do the passenger side, take a brake (eat lunch)
and then finish with the back seat

Coming up - Spring 2011!

-21st Century CMC-30 114LSA Cam, 227/239 duration, 1.7 ratio rocker arms, intake.629 lift, exhaust .623 lift
(grind by Comp Cams for 21stCMC - 227XER /239XER 114) -http://21stcenturymusclecars.com/21s...aft-1-1-2.aspx

-Comp 921 Valve Spring kit - Heavy Duty double valve springs, 10 degree locks & seals, titanium retainers, and spring seats

Here's a Vid of "topgun1" LS3 2010 Camaro with the same Cam and K&N CAI, Doug Thorley 1 3/4" shorty headers, SOLO hiflow cats, 3" Magnaflow catback exhaust...http://youtu.be/QLuyM-wlYxE

I want a cam that is mild/somewhat aggressive but still quite drivable,a nice balance between practicality and power. I chose 21st Century Muscle Cars based on the quality of work, experience and also because they offer Special Discounts to the Military.
