Thanks John, I still have one position on the touch pad to use and I think I'm going to do what you did with the DRLs.

JHall, good on you. You can count yourself as one of the few who can sleep at night knowing you did the right thing. I respect that.

Thank you Stand, I appreciate the COTW honor, it really made my year!!!
I'm really happy people can appreciate it and all the work that went into it....Suspension upgrades by Pedders, Pfadt, Granatelli & BMR have made it drive like a true super car!

Thanks Pierre, I'm wondering if the SS ever will be truly finished...Haha!! I hope one day it will be, and I'll say enough is enough! My problem is I always want to go faster, and although I went with SLP & their Maggie TVS 2300 Supercharger with the 5yr/100K powertrain warranty, I really think that could be going out the window. Especially since I'm considering adding gears, headers & cam......

Thank you Tmac for the kind words! The 3dCarbon Vents were really one of the first things I knew I was doing to the body, along with Eric's MPD1 Hood, Rear Spoiler & Smooth Exhaust panel. The vents really make it different and the key thing is they're functional and serve a purpose....Your car looks pretty sick too my friend!!

More goodies arrived & installed this week....No, not the ZL1 Bumper yet.. Come on GM, let's go!!!

Got my ZL1 Fuel pump from Patrick @ GM Parts House


From Lupe @ River City Creations, the beautifully painted Strut Tower Brace....You da man Lupe!!


From MTI Racing, I upgraded the the stock Tensioner with their Billet Racing Tensioner & also a 87mm Billet Pulley to replace the stock plastic one.






From Jordan @ JDP Motorsports, the Pfadt Front Radius Arm Bearings & Rear Upper Control Arm Inner Bushing got installed yesterday, along with the Pedders Eccentric Full Alignment Kit (Which can be a real PIA to install!)
Just a heads up for anyone with suspension or engine questions, Jordan really knows his stuff, he's a Forum Sponsor, he races his Camaro plus other cars, and a generally nice dude that's always available to answer any questions.


Pedders Full Alignment Kit


Pfadt Parts




This is the stock bushing on the rear arm that gets replaced with the Bearing, much better design obviously. Instead of it acting like a rubber band, it'll move much smoother and really improve handling....Imagine that, if you think your stock SS handles good......



Also working on an album & posters for the car shows with the help of Photoshop guru & fellow Jersey Boy, Chris (xVengeancex28)

Here's a few sneak peaks:










So this coming week, Pedderized alignment on Monday, ZL1 Fuel pump, Strut Tower Brace, MTI Tensioner & Pulley will get installed afterwards, I'll be thinking about my custom badge placement, while waiting & praying for Gary of Gary's Customz to tell me the ZL1 bumper is in ...And patiently waiting for my custom CAI lid from Bill @ CAI, that one's going off to Emblem Pros without the glass to get Hydro-Coated the same Illusion pattern as my other under hood components, thus increasing airflow to the box courtesy of the Z-Force hood.

I'm also getting the ball rolling on swapping out the rear end to a Strange Engineering Rear End with either LPE(Lingenfelter) 3:70 or 3:91 gears, along with 1400HP Half Shaft axles & a GForce Carbon Fiber Driveshaft.....Yes, I think I'm becoming crazy, but in a good way!

Thanks again to EVERYONE for all the positive comments, support & the Car of the Week honor, it's much appreciated & keeps me motivated!

Thanks Pierre! I know you're sweating it out waiting for your Maggie install this week But believe me amigo, it'll be well worth it!! All the credit for the pics must go to Chris (xVengencex28) here on the forum, he's a real photo guru!!

Thanks much GG, I put a lot of time & thought into each mod,, sometimes taking one step forward & then two steps back. It's all about trial & error, like if I knew I was going to do the ZL1 front bumper I probably would've only ordered a few pieces from 3dCarbon, like the Fender Vents, Side Skirts & Rear Spats, but live and learn! You're going to love the Kilis rims, very high quality & look great!

Time to put the ZL1 Fuel Pump in.... I know it's going to be a PITA
