Arrow The Punisher [COTW 4/14/14]

Hi everybody, this is my Camaro! It's a Black 2SS/RS. I got it on 5/21/09, This one wasn't even suppose to be mine. I had placed an order for a 1SS M6 and I wasn't expected to take delivery until some time in January of 2010. I got to see this car on it's reveal day and started to kick myself in the arse that I didn't get the RS package or leather seats. Later that month I was driving past and noticed a Silver V6 Camaro on their lot so I pulled in to take it out for a test drive (Couldn't drive the one I was previously looking at because it was already sold, but still at the dealership). So talking with the salesman to try and test drive the car, they were all acting very weird. They kept beating around the bush and tried to get me to come inside the dealership. So when I walked in the other salesman that I ordered mine through was standing by the same black Camaro from before with the keys in his hand and the driver door open. He looked at me said "Do you want it"?

Apparently the original buyer had to back out due to financial problems and I just so happened to stop by that very day to get first dibs on the car, I couldn't believe it. So of course I didn't hesitate to buy it and I ended up taking home this Black 2SS/RS!


Performance mods:
Polished F1-A Procharger, 1200HP racing inter-cooler, racing BOV
Eagle 416 stroker kit (Rods, Pistons, Crank)

Ported heads and throttle body

Methanol Injection
2x3" American Racing headers
Custom 3" exhaust after the headers with cutouts



Visual mods:
Barton's pistol grip shifter with "SS" engraving
Blacked out side markers
"SS" badges under the "CAMARO" badge on each side (SS badges have white inlays...originally where red).
Blacked out bowtie with Punisher skull

Awesome ride! Thanks for including the Roto-fab intake as one of your mods.
The hockey stripes are cool. I am still on the fence between them and the rally stripes. Where did you get the rear window louvre piece?

This isn't the same website I got mine from, at least I think, but it's the same louver!

Here are two videos, first one is a light take-off with my current set up pre tuned, the second is of it on the dyno (just for fun)




The car made 355rwhp and 371rwtq on a superflow dyno which I was told reads 10% lower than a dynojet.

Update: I have a 2.8L LC Kenne Bell on the way, and with this week filled with days of rain all the snow and salt should be washed away and the car will be going into the shop no later than next weekend. Also found the perfect set of rims that will be going on the car around the same time. I'll have pics up later this week or the week after!

Heritage grill is here, anyone know how to pull the bowtie and ss emblem off the stock grill?

Had a shit ton of snow lastnight. It was snowing, raining, thundering and lightning out....gotta love Wisconsin

So now I am trying to find a trailer to get the camaro to the shop, otherwise I will have to wait until the snow melts.

The first picture is of my front yard + the road, can you find the road? Bet you can't. Before the storm yesterday the roads were clear and you could see green grass....
