How much weight did you save with replacing the stock hood and trunk lid with CF ones?

Almost seemed as if the stock hood was lighter... and 5lbs in the trunk lid if I am lucky.

Did a dyno pull today at a car show that i went to. Was 95 degrees out and push 100% humidity. The car did 370.51hp and 365.63 Torque... The guy's printer ran out of color ink so I have to wait for him to send me a copy of the dyno print out...

just curious why you are going with the carbon fiber driveshaft over the aluminum one? I wanted the DSS carbon fiber driveshaft until i started asking around. I know a couple people who have broken the carbon fiber ones. I decided im going with the 1-piece aluminum driveshft.

havent fully researched it yet... it can still be changed... Just figured I would try to go as lightweight as possible... come to think about it I dont even know the weight differences between the two...

Cam, right now is in question waiting for MTI to get back with me on prices with labor and all that... Stock block... I am expecting to have anywhere from 600-625 rwhp w/ just the Turbo's... I am around 385rwhp with full exhaust and no tune...

Well just got off the phone with MTI. We are a go for a few more mods... Getting their Stage 2 Cam and everything needed for that, a ZR1 clutch, and MTI's shifter... They will have my car for a little longer but it will be worth it in the end... For anyone in the South especially around the ATL area, I fully recommend MTI to anyone... Good group of guys to work with...

Ok, so I havent posted in a while... I apologize, but I have been out having fun with my car since I have gotten it back from MTI Racing. So I came back and updated my mod list on the front page and figured I would throw out my power gains after getting the car back.

So before taking my car to MTI, I was at 385rwhp and 370lbtq... Now after all the installs from MTI and STS, I am sitting at 585rwhp and 592lbtq. All I have to say is man this car is fun as hell to drive now.

MTI installed the following items:
MTI Racing Six Shooter Shifter
STS rear mount Twin Turbo system (MTI Tune)
MTI Racing Stage 2 Cam
MTI Racing Valvetrain (Springs, Locks, Retainers, seals, seats)
LS9 Fuel Injectors
Corvette ZR1 Clutch
MTI Spark Plug Wires
Low Temp Thermostat

So far have only had 1 issue with the Turbo system which happened tonight while driving to pick a friend up... The CHEAP CLAMPS... Basically with the cheap clamps on the charge pipe that connects to the throttle body popped off... >.> Car instantly went into limp mode... So I will be upgrading the clamps here shortly. But other than that all is gravy. I broke the clutch in within 3 days (500 miles of driving) and havent had an issue with that.

Anyways just figured I would share...
