'08 Z06 "Thor"

Here is my 2008 (C6) Z06, which is my pride and joy, and the following of its life.
PS: I'm cheap, so my mods will come slow but worthy. Also I like writing more than showing so excuse the plentiful letters and words which can usually be found as useless.

Photos/Cosmetics


















Dipped Wheels





First Car Show






Exhaust
These clips (through Pro Beats) sound very similar to about 80-90%
As you can hear in video 1 and see in video 2, the exhaust moves the garage door

Exhaust start up w/ butterfly exhaust (Warm)



Exhaust start up w/out butterfly exhaust (Warm)


Drive-by and Rev to ~4.5K (Warm)



/Performance
Michelin Super Sports





Audio System
Kenwood DNX9980HD


Rockford Fosgate Subs and Amp



FUTURE (by priority):
FAST LSXR Intake Manifold 102mm & Williams Performance Throttle Body 102mm
110 Torquer Camshaft - KaTech

That is definitely not a problem. This is a corvette friendly website. And Thor is a good name ...

I don't mind

We're all for Chevy performance, no matter what model

Although, we're heavily biased towards the Camaro, haha.

Can't wait to read up on this




and oh......

Hahaha thanks guys, I'm updating with pics at the moment! I like the Hammer signature btw. Just didn't want to tread all over a forum I wasn't permitted in and be a jerk taking up people's time.

Thanks! Just wait until it gets back from the shop... I know I can't though. It's leaving this or next week which is sad but exciting.

Thanks guys ^ love the input, updated to Youtube instead of photobucket for videos, grab some nice headphones and open your ears.. sounds pretty close to real noise 85%
The last two were just an hour ago in my neighborhood.. enjoy

Nice ride and love Vettes. My next car will be a Vette I am almost sure of it unless I splurge for the ZL1 Camaro. It will be awhile though because my orange beastie is plenty fun for now.

Okay... this is the 4th or 5th time I've attempted to post this and the 3rd time such an introduction has been included..
For my birthday I got some pretty nice subs with a standard box and an amp all from Rockford Fosgate, my radar detector set up to the rear-view, and I have my tints and wheels to dip very soon. Update with pictures later this week..

...Wrecked it today.. :( I feel so lonely
Everyone is fine and the car is minimally damaged
Rack and Pinion will be replaced with a new front bumper
Didn't hit any other cars and God gave me a safe spot to finish my correction battle
Spun the tires in the rain on a shift and threw the car in a spin.. fought back and forth for control and wound up locking the wheel to avoid worse collision than a soft gravel spot embanked in lip height water
... devastated that I've hurt my girl.

Damn, that sucks. We all learn sometime. I plan on getting one down the road, but I don't plan on driving it in rain. That's what the camaro is for.

Thanks man, I still don't even get the car back for another 2 weeks.... But yeah the car handles great dry or wet.. but sometimes I let self perceived invincibility take over. :( And I definitely recommend Corvettes; if it is in the budget. The seats, though, are honestly as bad as everyone says.

New Steering Gear, Front Bumper, 3 New Wheels, all New Tires.. PS2s
