Had mine at 9 shows. Trophied 6 times - 3 1st place, 1 2nd, and 2 general non class trophies. I did notice you can go up against the same cars you won over before and lose next time. Depends on judges. I really don't care about the trophies, although they are an added bonus. I just enjoy the day out and seeing other peoples rides.

To all you V6 45thers, is there anyone who did any mods with engine breathing? What is out there for V6 2012 & is any of it any good? I am NOT looking for CAI right now.

If you are looking for an external cooling as opposed to a cai, I have would suggest just removing the engine cover. I dunno

Hey guys, thought I'd post this over here as well, I have a 45th LS3 and to your benefit will be destroying its collector value with 750whp Anyways, I have a build thread, and would love to hear some ideas on a stripe layout for a new hood! Here's the mandatory pic:

I've not found any in stores locally where I'm at in North Texas, but eBay and Amazon have them for 20 - 25 bucks... I'm going to add one to my tree for this year!

This was at a local Fred Meyer store here in Washington. It is a art of the Kroger chain of stores. If someone wants one I can certainly grab more for a lot less than 20 bux... Shipping won't be that much.

For those of us in the military, these are also available at AAFES exchanges. I bought one a few weeks ago.

Extra Ornaments ...

Hey all. I was able to buy out the 45th Ornaments that our Navy Exchange store had today. One is spoken for but the other three are up for grabs.

I paid $13.50 each for them and shipping can't be very much. PM me if you're interested!!

My 45H

Here's my car - I think I'm done with any exterior mods (except light tint on tails and markers, and perhaps a fog light conversion).

I'm seriously considering cam and tune right now (GMPP or TSP cam)
