'13 IOM 1LE

So, I finally decided to start a build thread after nearly 8 months after driving my car off the lot........

I ordered my car in March of 2013 and after waiting a few months it showed up May 22, 2013. I haven't done much with the car at this moment but I will eventually. The car is a daily driver so the warranty actually means something to me... (I know, how boring). Performance wise the car has basically nothing done to it and visually the car only has a few vinyl things done to it.

I plan on keeping my car looking very close to stock to have a sleeper once I actually start doing performance mods.

MODS:

Performance:
Halltech CAI
Mild2Wild
Bo White's hand ported TB

Visual:
Xpel light black out (side markers, turn signals, tail lights, reverse lights)
Phastek Flat Black bowtie black out
SLP fade gills, flat black
ZL1 style rock guards front and rear
SLP rear black out, Flat black
1LE style hash marks, matte black

Future Visual Mods (could care less about these):
Window tint.....
ACC afterburner taillights
ACC ghosted side markers (black)
Anvil spoiler (wrapped matte black)
Taillight Bezels (flat black)

Future Performance Mods:

Phase 1- N/A 500whp:
TSP 2" headers
Billy Boat ZL1 exhaust
Night Fury cam w/ supporting mods
Ported Heads
ZL1 front brakes
BMR TL, TA


Phase 2: 800-1100+whp
AGP TT kit (precision 6766 turbo)
Forged internals
Dual fuel pumps
Mantic 9000 clutch
DSS 9" IRS conversion
Alky control meth
AHR shorties
Big brakes
wider and stickier rear tire

Phase 3?????
Built 416????



Here is the car day #1 right when I got it home.

I wanted my car to stand out a little more and I wasn't a fan of the huge yellow bowtie on an orange a black car so I went to phastek.com and bought a bowtie black out kit and a smoked "light protection" kit and some side gills.

The car looked much better to me. I had the black out kit on all my lights but I thought the head lights were way too dim so I ended up taking off them off the head lights and fog lamps.

After countless hours of browsing Camaro5, I found a local Camaro Club and once my schedule permitted, I went to one of their meets. Happened to be a cruise Bradenton to hit the drag strip. The track temp was 102 and the air temp was in the 90s with typical FL humidity. Also, the being my 2nd car and first manual, I didn't do so good.

On a side note, Bad Dad (C5 member) showed up with his 9 second Camaro and I got to watch that monster get dialed in.

Decided to make my car a little more unique and added a 1LE emblem to the rear along with some hash marks, and a rear black out. Also wanted a little more power so I purchased a Halltech CAI.

Got to make it to another club meet at Hot Rod Nationals. While I was there somebody ripped my hash marks attempting to pull them off? Its beyond me who touches a car at a car show......

Anyway, I bought the "1LE style hash marks" from forum member SSTG

Thanks!

I'm sure your loving your 1LE though. If that was your IOM in your signature it looks awesome.

Trying to talk a friend into buy the NS-1 kit. Got him to look at it the other day and likes it a lot.

Haven't driven the 1LE enough (274 miles) yet.

The SS in my Sig was indeed mine. Thanks for the compliment.

Thanks again for supporting us, there is no better compliment!

Matt @ FSP had his 2nd annual dyno day. I wanted to buy a vmax ported TB but apparently Vmax's porting machine broke and FSP along with Apex and other places are sold out so no TB for me. But I got a chance to finally see what my car is making

Pull #1: 416whp/398wtq
Pull #2: 414whp/394wtq

Received a present for my car. Our anniversary was 2 days ago so I bought a gift and put it on before work. Something I've been wanting to have for a long time. Completely cured the throttle lag.
