Talon6900's 2011 Synergy Green 2SS

I figured it's time to start one of these threads...

I had trouble getting my first dealer to be honest with me. I first ordered the car July 17, 2010, and after 6 weeks, the dealer hadn't used any allocation to put the order through. I took my deposit back and went elsewhere. The fortunate part about the elapsed time was that the Synergy Green interior panels became available on the 2SS/2LT. I ordered again at a new dealer at the end of August. My car was delivered to me on November 26, 2010. (Black Friday)


I ordered the following options:
Synergy Green 2SS, Manual Transmission
Hurst Factory Short Throw Shifter
Synergy Green/Black Interior
Sunroof
GM Ground Effects
Lifetime XM Radio (not on the order, but that's when I asked for it)

The car was delivered with no rocker panels, since the GFX were part of the order. I took them to the body shop to be painted Carbon Flash (Black Granite) metallic. Once they were ready, I had them installed at the dealer.

I also ordered my vanity plates when I ordered the car, so they were ready in plenty of time.


I installed a CAI intake, RX catch can, and breather right away.


The VMax throttle body came soon after that

***the fresh air inlet on the intake has since been capped***

And then... It was time to get a little more serious...

Took the car to Clint at A.I.R. down in Wheat Ridge. He and Hector installed my Kooks 1 7/8" Long tubes and Borla ATAK exhaust. The headers are 1700 JetHot coated in flat black finish.




Meanwhile... I took the opportunity to Plastidip my wheels






Later that afternoon, Clint and I went to the dyno

***sorry about the audio, the car washed out the mic. Notice the the guy in the background covering his ears while working on a truck***

Plastidipped my bowties the next day

I may be in the middle of nowhere, but the car is in for a little "cosmetic surgery" The body shop sent me some photos, the car goes in the booth for stripes today!!
