My IOM. . . AKA Project Whiplash.

Well I decided to start a build thread. Its gonna be a slow Build but hopefully a good one. I'll post a list below of what mods I plan on doing. I'll be adding Mods as I find stuff. So Far I have Stainless Works catback that I converted into a Flowmaster catback, Vararam No Tune intake, Factory Hurst Shifter, Skipshift, and SLP SS emblems.

I wanna go ahead and touch on how I converted the exhaust into A Flowmaster. All I actually did was swap mufflers, I went from SW S-Tube mufflers to Flowmaster Super 10 Single Chamber mufflers everything else is still SW. I like the sound of the single chambers much better. Its way deeper and in my opininon sounds how a Camaro should.

Planed mods -

1. Stainless Works Long tube headers
2. Dyno Tune
3. F.A.S.T. LSx intake
4. F.A.S.T. Throttle body
5. ? Cam ?
6. Heads
7. I would like Full suspension also
8. Posi Mod with 4.11s
9.Catch Can
10. underdrive pulley
11. Hurst or Barton Short throw
12. Center Exhaust
13. headlight and taillight covers
14. 15% window tint
15. 20" STANCE 5IVE DEEP CONCAVE wheels
16. GM Blade spoiler
17. White Rally stripes

Completed Mods-

1. Stainless works catback with Flowmaster single chamber mufflers
2. Vararam ram air intake
3. skip shift
4. Heritage grille
5. Factory Hurst/ Aftermarket Hurst with chrome stick and T-handle knob
6. SLP SS emblem on rear end
7. SCT tuner from Jannetty with Bolt on tune.

Theres much more I would like to do I'll be updating as I remeber stuff. I'm kinda in a hurry at the moment

Well I hit a deer in the SS last week. I pick it up from the shop tomorrow. While it was in the shop I had a Heritage Grille added and blacked out around the headlights. I'm also picking up my aftermarket hurst tomorrow.

Sounds great... Let me know if you need help with those Forgestar wheels and I'll be more than happy to set you up on something to get that thing looking even more aggressive

Very nice. Whats IOM mean ?. And what is a catch can and why ?
I just bought and modded a 2012 2SS,RS,LS3. I too am thinking of starting a build / mod thread. I just need to learn how to incorperate pics and videos. I have very little experience with forums and social networking. I just uploaded a 30 sec video of my new exhaust in YouTube, but don't know how to get it in here yet.
Good luck with your mods. syoder76 ( Sean )

Thanks! IOM mean Inferno Orange Metallic, the color of my car. A catch can is to catch excess oil that over flows into your intake manifold to be burnt off in the cylinders. With out a catch can it causes your intake manifold and stuff to get all gummy looking and nasty. Anyone feel free to correct me if I'm wrong!
