I forgot to post pics of the Prothane motor mounts and MTI polyurethane transmission mount that I installed awhile back.

Before the motor mounts, my engine had a lot of movement. The mounts greatly reduced the movement and the car actually shakes less at idle now. I may have had a bad motor mount to begin with.




MTI mount on top, stock on bottom.

I haven't been happy with my McLeod RXT clutch since I put it in. It chattered quite a bit when launching the car. I sent it to McLeod once and they said it was out of spec and they rebuilt it. The rebuild didn't help and the clutch had the same problem. So, I decided to replace it. When I pulled the RXT out, I noticed one of the discs didn't seem to be fully contacting the floater plate. I think this may have been my issue. I'm going to send it back to McLeod for a rebuild and then put it up for sale.




I decided to try an RPS dual carbon Street Slayer. This thing is cool. Every surface has carbon on it. They claim it takes six months at 2000 degrees to make the carbon.





The pedal effort on the Street Slayer is more than the RXT, but launching it is silky smooth so far.

I also changed my Barton shifter to an MGW. I liked the Barton, but so far I like the MGW even more. Sorry, I didn't get any pics of the shifter install except looking through a hole in the floor up at the radio.

Thanks to a member here, I was able to get a new take off NPP catback and rear diffuser. I also purchased NPP in a box from GM Parts House to control the butterflies.

It's a straight forward install. Remove the stock rear diffuser, remove the catback (Magnaflow Street in my case), install the NPP catback, install new diffuser, and hook up the NPP controller.




Video of first start up before I hooked up the controller.

New diffuser on.




Controller.



Hook up for vacuum hose.



Kinda looks like a mess in this pic. Since I have a BAP for my Whipple, I just tapped the vacuum hose going to it. I figure there was no reason to run a whole new hose all the way to the engine. So far, no issues with the butterflies opening due to boost. If I do have an issue, I figure I can add a check valve at any time.



In order to keep the least amount of vacuum hose possible outside the car, I fed the hoses through each side. Here's the place I used on the driver side. Look all the way back. It puts the vacuum hose right at the connection point on the muffler.



I wanted to use the same place on the passenger side, but I already had BAP wires and hose there and there just wasn't enough room for another hose. You can see where I routed it in this pic. It's not ideal since something could be put on the vacuum line in the trunk. However, it's very close the the rear of the trunk and it would have to be something extremely heavy to affect it.



I grounded the controller using the bolt that grounds the main battery wire. Then I ran the power wire to the fuse box in the rear passenger side. I already had the hole drilled from previously wiring up the BAP. This time I tapped the fuse for the stereo amp.



And here's a video testing the controller. I also programmed buttons on my Homelink to control the butterflies so I don't have to use the remotes that came with the kit.

I really like the sound of the exhaust at idle and low RPM. However, with the butterflies open, WOT is a little raspy. If you like Corsa, you will like this. It's not deafening like the Corsa, but sounds similar to me. Keep in mind, I have Kooks longtubes and cats. Closing the butterflies really does cut down on the drone and WOT is much quieter. I also really like the look of the quad tips.

Awesome build. I think you are having fun. Sorry to hear that you had to deal with some faulty parts from multiple vendors. It's annoying doing the labor the 1st time... it really sucks when you have to do it multiple times. Great job sticking with it!

Here's a crappy pic of the plaque I won at LS Fest.


After one of the runs at LS Fest, I noticed the car didn't sound right, so I stopped racing. Turns out, I blew out a cat and bent some valves.


I took the heads off and had Brian Tooley work his magic. He tested the Patriot Gold valve springs and determined they were junk which is why I had piston to valve contact. I decided that since the heads were off, I might as well put some ported heads back on. Brian hooked me up with his BTR valve springs to ensure proper control of the valves.

Heads and supercharger are back on. I used the same 7 layer head gaskets that come on the ZR1. I started installing the rockers, but the trunions seemed very loose to me, so I decided to upgrade using the comp kit. The install was much easier than I anticipated. I also started gutting the cats since one was messed up. That was a pain in the ass. Oh, while the supercharger was off, I decided to upgrade the injectors to ID850's. I'm planning to fire it up Friday.

I made it to the track last Saturday. My SS is officially a 10 second car on 20" wheels. I did have some wheel hop on this run.



A video from my wife's iPhone.


And here's an inside view.

Daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayum! That is totally bad azz! Wish I could have been there to see it. Thanks for the prompt to check your build thread. I am happy just to see you roll past Ruby in the staging lanes in one of the LSX Fest videos! Congrats!
