Taco's 14 SS

I picked up my new 2014 on June 3rd 2014 and it was the right color, black. That weekend I did my first mod, plastidip. I did the wheels and all of the badging. about a week after I got the car I had my appointment to have the interior swapped to leather.

a few weeks after having the car I found some good threads on C5 with instructions on how to paint your calipers. So I gave that a try. I ordered new Brembo decals and replaced them when I was finished.

Here's a good thread for instructions.

In July came performance mods. I added a CAI, Kooks LTs, Flowmaster Outlaws, and a tune. Shortly after I added an Apex Catch can.

After painting my calipers I had some paint left over, so I decided I'd start spray painting stuff under the hood. It's not professional quality, but the price was def right! LOL

In Sept I had my Night Fury cam installed, I painted my exhaust tips black, and painted my rear diffuser black. I also installed my Bo White Ported TB.

In November I preordered a set of MRR Z/28 replica wheels and continued to eat Ramen noodles because the car is getting all my paychecks.

I also installed an Apex washer tank relocation kit and air scoop. Here's the instructions.

Mar 17th my MRR wheels came in! Super stoked about that. But my car is in the shop so I don't have anything to mount them on... yet.

March 10th I dropped my car off a J-Rod's Speed Shop to have my motor pulled. I sold it locally in Houston and have a 417 Stroker coming from FSP! Can't wait to have that bad boy installed and put it on the dyno. And... More Ramen noodles.

This is where I am as of today. I know I'm not finished modding the car, but I don't have any clue what the future will hold for my SS.

Def, To Be Continued!

Spend all your money on your car? LOL. I think I have some sort of addiction.

Thank you! I'm already looking at about 20 different things that I want to do to the car.

Matt @ FSP sent me over a few teaser pictures for the new motor. He said that the crank is balanced and the block is honed. It's almost assembly time!

If you ever want to know if you have any patience or not, pull the motor out of your car and wait for a new one to come in. It's brutal. Matt sent me some more pics. Hoping to have the motor shipped from FL to TX today, then J-Rod can do his magic.

While I'm waiting for my motor I had been saving some money and found a Fast 102 intake for sale from a fellow H-Town Camaro Club member for a good price. I dropped it off, as well as my strut tower brace, to have them hydrodipped at Houston Hydrodip. I am very pleased with how they came out!!! I can definitely see this becoming a new addiction.
