Daveagogo1's VooDoo build.

I have been looking at these for a long time and well i guess i figured i might as well make one of my own. My 5th gen is a 2011 1SS/RS L99. She began life on 11-20-10 when her floor pans were welded together. She received her sexy paint job on 11-29-10. Her engine and transmission were staged on 12-01-10. She rolled off the assembly line ready for her stripes then a long trip to Florida and her new home on 12-02-10. She was in my hands and brought home on 12-31-10. It is my DD and has a little over 27k miles on her.

She has been a fantastic DD driver, a show car at times and she has made many passes down the 1320'. Stock out of the box she ran 13.3 off the showroom floor.

I have entered 23 car shows since ownership and have won best in class or best of show 19 times. The biggest was at the Monster auto show here in Florida. Ended up winning best of show best GM Modified vs over 300 other GM cars from all years .This was a major show win. .

Adams Products 10 best Camaros of 2011
Monster Transmission Best Modified GM 2011
CAI Inc. Car of the month March 2012
Gm Partshouse Camaro of the month June 2012
Sunshine State Camaro Rally Best Engine Bay winner March 2013

I decided early on my first mods would be cosmetic then after putting some miles on it and seeing what type of reliability she had i'd start adding power. The car got my nickname. I have been called VooDoo for as long as i can remember. My wife even used to call me it.

So, here is what mods have been done. I have tried to make almost all the cosmetic mods very unique and all carrying the theme throughout.

Performance: L99 382 RWHP & 392 RWTQ
SW LT headers
Cai Inc intake (black)
Vmax TB
Magnaflow 3" comp catback
Catless midpipes
Tuned by Tampa Tuning
Tranny tune by Tampa Tuning

Exterior:
Headlight Armor Blackouts on side markers, drl's & reverse lights.
Retro 69' gill trim painted black
Retro script Camaro fender badges
Emblempros Custom made VooDoo deck emblem.
Big Worm Two tone bow tie inserts.
Window tint.
Emblempros 69' script fender badges in black.
Powder coated and cleared gloss black OEM 20's
Black painted tail light bezels
Rear deck blackout
Front fascia blackout
Mail slot blackout
Black & Red GM plate frame

Interior:
Custom two tone painted shifter tray and bezel. (Many vendors have now copied mine )
Custom two tone painted gauge bezel.
Painted steering wheel bezel.
DSV Custom two tone all leather door inserts.
GM red stitched premium floor mats
GM red stitched shifter

Engine bay:
Roto-Fab Custom two tone flamed aluminum engine covers.
Showstopper Polished box covers for ABS, Battery & Brake fluid.
Roto-Fab Powder coated Radiator shroud.
Rot-Fab painted fuse box cover.
Chrome & red carbon fiber engine cap covers
OEM strut tower brace.
Yates Polished strut tower caps.
Emblempros Custom one off under hood bow tie with matching emblem to rear deck.
Yates Polished oil dipstick replacement.

Future mods:

The list is long.


So, here are some photos of everything. Enjoy.

Sweet. Can't wait to see it. So far mine is the only one i have come across that still has the indicators functional and has been painted. Nobody would do it so i had to do that piece myself.

Looks great Dave!! Are these wheels gloss black? And if so where did you end up getting them? I'm in search of the same wheels.

Thanks

Hey Jamie, yes they are gloss black powder coated and cleared. I bought them from a member here who just so happened to be in Maryland lol. He decided to go a different route so these were never mounted after being refinished. I could have just had mine done for about $250 but, i didn't want any down time.
