Where do I start!? Lol

Gonna drop it first, have my eye on some coils from a forum member.

Wheels/Tires ... Not sure what

Want to do a Pro Stock Granatelli Motorsports wing

Carbon Creations cowl hood

Power mods come after I get it looking right. It's a DD and I drive cross country with it for work so nothing real aggressive.

Good luck as was already stated you are starting off with the best color LOL
My only advice would be to try and have a plan of what you want the car to look like and perform like and build to the plan

The single biggest bang for the buck mod that can be made to a 2010 5th Gen is to upgrade the rear lower control arms and rear sway bar to the Z-style setup first seen on the ZL1. The original rear bar mounts inboard. closer to the differential than the wheels. ALL 2010 - 2012 SS models under-steer badly because of this. Upgrading to a 1LE or ZL1 28mm rear bar and lower control arms transforms the early SS models into great handling more neutral cars. You can pick the bars up cheap as take offs from those that have upgraded to my 32mm rear bar or go big front the start.

Your SS won't look any different, but you'll have far more smiles per mile with the driving experience.

Exactly. It will drive like a newer model and that is a HUGE plus. I have been doing this since the Penske model was shown before the 5th Gen was in production. I wouldn't steer you wrong.

Looks like we got a couple of parrots in here...

Car looks good. I like the weather in the background on the pictures!

Take-offs or going big is the question.
