The calipers? Yeah I'd do it if I had the $200 or so it costs laying around. They'll look 1000 times better powder coated or painted. I can't believe how faded they look stock.

I'm just gonna paint mine red. With "Brembo" on them.

Lol yea not a bad idea, I was looking at the brembo brakes and wow crazy expensive. Have you done anything to the engine to add HP? I would like to but dont want to do nothing too crazy. A friend told me to add a chip.

Does your friend drive a mustang? Only mustang drivers use a chip....

Just kidding, but you can't put a chip in these cars, just a tune. Which will void your warranty. You can get a Cold Air Intake (CAI) to boost your HP and stay with your factory warranty. Exhaust may get you a few HP but it's mostly for sound. I don't know much more about the V6s performance wise. And with the LT brakes, you might just go with brake covers instead.


Hey v6 post another pic of your engine bay. I think it looks great!

Hey guys.... I was searching for a used rear end so I could get a set of gears installed and still keep my stock rear....
This is what I found....

Way to much carnage on that site .... Ever wonder why your insurance is so high????

If it works, they will then have the new template and will paint me up a set.

I am a lot more confident now and they expressed a strong interest in helping me and bringing this to a resolution. Points for MGP!

I will update you soon.
I received the covers in and installed the sample. It fit well, and with just a minor tweak, they will be ready. I am hoping the get the new set in the next week. Here is a taste.

Did a few mods yesterday....

Carbon Flash Metallic Bowties
Carbon Flash Metallic License Plate Frame
Ghost Armor for interior and exterior lighting, gauges, radio

Last but not least, I installed this great CAI intake that RPI Designs painted to match the vehicle. I absolutely love it! It looks great, sounds great, and gave me a noticeable difference in power.

Thanks to CAI for making a great product and thanks to RPI for painting all of the above parts including the intake.

Awesome products and awesome service!

So I'd been debating getting a new Camaro as well as some other cars I won't mention. After seeing lots of photos of the 45th I go check one out to see if it would be something I'd like and seriously consider. So yeah.....she came home with me that day! Coming from a '94 was quite the upgrade.

I only went to the dealership for fun to look at the ZL1 in their showroom and came home with this. I must admit I love the look of this car!
