Bro, you rock! Modding cars has always been a passion of mine, you did see the pic of my 1989 Vette on the first post right, back then no one went crazy with new cars.

But not me, that baby had a one of a kind body kit, the Calloway package,and much more & if it wasn't such a shitty pic (no digital cameras or phones back then, LOL), it had a custom chameleon paint job that was different at different angles. Not to mention a kick ass sound system that won about 20 trophies in IASCA contests, that's where they measure fidelity, not BOOM. That was my first ever sponsored car by Beacon Car Audio in Northfield, NJ, they said we'll put the system in free of charge but you have to rep us at these shows, and that was kick ass fun! Not bad for a 21 year old, I was already Executive Sous Chef of the #1 NEW Restaurant in America voted by Esquire Mag, down in Boca Raton, Florida. So really my love affair with Vettes goes back quite a bit, but also had 2 Camaros, an 84 Z28, then the 5.7L IROC (Italian Retards Out Cruisin), that's what the haters used to call them. You know I've always appreciated your kind words & support from Day 1, Thank you

Thanks kobSS, glad you enjoyed it and if you can get the chance to take your whip to Ryne, DO IT!!! I'm waiting to hear back from him, so that's probably not good news. Not with my car, but he was having issues with the Dyno and he's getting ready to maybe grab a new one. He won't give a car back until it's 100% and I'm at 99.99% and I respect that and that's why I drove 85 miles, so he's the only one that'll touch it, and Bro, he's a LS Engine GURU!! We're having a meet at Antidote Performance (one of my sponsors) shop this Saturday, you're welcomed to take the cruise up. Especially if you're looking for some products, my boys Jake & Scott will hook you up! Plus Wheel Warehouse is right there too, in case you wanted to check out rims or tires......Plus plenty of food!! I'll definitely checkout your build thread since I see some tasty mods in your sig, you're welcomed to join us bro!





Hear that Paul(SummoneR), get your ass down here!!!

I hear ya bro, but there's no way I'd lose the Hoe, I'm on my 3rd one, and my 3rd Camaro LOL....I can't haul surfboards on my whip I'd be looking like KOOK man!! Wait till you see the bumpers I got for the Tahoe, it's going to be one mean looking SOB. I was one of the first to put a 6" lift on the new body style Tahoes back in NJ, it really is the perfect SUV. I've had mine Dyno tuned, Banks headers, K & N CIA, Magnaflow exhaust, 4 black leather captains chairs, a banging system and to top it off it's the 5.2 LS block that I have tuned to 440 RWHP. If a SUV could be a Head Turner this one sure is. There's nothing like rolling high above everyone else, with a fat stance, just feels like a fast tank! The only thing I would need is a bigger garage, for the ZLX & the Stingray. It's not a question of having to sell either or to get it, I've always been a Vette guy, as noted above, when I bought my SS it was either that or a Z06, but I knew that the C7s would be out in 2 years, so that's why I chose the SS and just planned my build....Trust me, I LOVE the old school looks of the Maro, I hated when they made the F Bodies, but when I saw the 5th Gen, well the rest is history. I just wanted to make sure I could get an allocation when the C7s come out. My buddy's family back in South Jersey owns a big Chevy dealership, that who I got all my Tahoes from, so at least I have the option, but they won't be out till close to the end of the year, so that's a long way off and a lot of time with SSYNSTR

Says THE MAN with 2 BADASS Camaros in his garage!!! Trust me brother K, it won't be a rush decision, and like I told Pierre, it simply may mean I need a bigger garage, the Tahoe's a brut & too big for a garage any way, plus it's a beast, so I don't baby it. So there's a long way to go before the C7 is made available, so that gives me plenty of time to house shop. Building my car has been a dream, doing everything my way has been an awesome experience and the platform is so good, that with my upgrades and mods, in a pure numbers standpoint, it's more RWHP & Torque than a ZL1 & a ZR1, and the latter starts at $125K. Granted I just upgraded insurance companies just for the Maro because when I found out my current insurance company would only give 40 cents on the dollar for what I have into, God forbid something were to happen, I'd be out a bit of money. This is one thing many should consider, I went with Hartford, they specialize in classics and let me insure for replacement costs and last week as I was adding up my receipts for mods & sticker price, the figure almost floored me And again Kurt, I owe you a lot, you've made me a better person and helped me through some rough times, with the passing of my best friend. You've helped me establish my relationship with Jesus, and I know I'm a better person due to you, so I'll never be able to thank you enough!

Darkrhett, thank you for the compliment, it's much appreciated. That's a pretty cool box, I like the fact that it's fiberglass & not wood. The carpet matches well, keep in mind on thing if I can make a suggestion, you definitely want to add some sound deadening material for the trunk, it's very easy to do, as the carpet comes right up. Since we upgraded all speakers in the car to Morels, I deadened the whole car, seats out & carpet up, pain in the ass, yes, but when you want to do it right you have to do it from the start. There's a good Camaro site, called Rick's Camaros, http://www.rickscamaros.com, if I recall they have the precut sheets needed. It just cuts down on that tinny sound from outside the car and really improves interior sound quality. Let me know how you make out,
if you were in SoCal, I'd send you Antidote Performance and they'd do the job right!

Im sure it will grow on me as have some other GM designs. Still love the C6 I sure would not trade a tricked out Camaro like yours Knonix just to get the new Vett


Damn Eric, I'm honored that you popped in to my humble thread. I think you've single handedly transformed many a Camaro to another level. I get so many compliments on all my MPD1 parts, hood, spoiler & smooth rear exhaust panel, which I believe is how the car should've came with! You are a true craftsman and I love my Ram Air functional Z-Force hood. You're a true asset to this forum and your products are second to none, and you're always available to talk to.....Thank you Sir I'm a MPD1 fan for life and wouldn't change a thing you've done on my car

CMS had to do a little repair work from a previous shop that did the header install, and it only enforced that bringing the car to CMS was the best thing I've done since having it, I only wish he built it from the beginning, cause NOBODY knows the engine like Ryne & his crew at CMS. The car is 99.99% done, when he did a baseline dyno pull the numbers, (668 rwhp, when tuned it'll be 700) were better than a ZR1 Corvette, forget the ZL1, that's breakfast I had a beat O2 sensor into my header, so that's being addressed and should done early next week, unless I'm surprised by a phone call tomorrow.

Thanks P, The wait is killing me but it'll be well worth it in the end. I know the speaker rings you mentioned, and the only shine on the inside, is my brushed kickplates with Carbon Fiber SS. Antidote Performance is making me some special covers to replace the Boston Acoustic badge on the speakers, since they're all Morel Supremos. I really don't want too much chrome or stainless inside and I know they make Black Billet rings, so i'll wait to get my custom Morel tabs first.

I did receive a box today of something I had custom made for both vehicles actually, so I'll open it up tomorrow and take some pics...They're unique & cool, so stay tuned..

John,
"Paid in full"....You just make my day with your statement about your "knowing" Jesus. As our Pastor Jeremy has reminded us over and over..."there is a difference between believing in Jesus and really knowing Jesus".
I am so proud of you for your convictions to everything you do. Keep up the good work John and you will be just where you NEED to be at the end of the day!

OH Yeah.....WOW...for the "Best of the Best" Gen5 Camaro.....

Keep in mind bro, that thread is way old,, and one of the early models, so if it was a flaw, then it should've been fixed by now. I never tried to do that, well how would I, don't have my damn car!!

CMS had to do a little repair work from a previous shop that did the header install, and it only enforced that bringing the car to CMS was the best thing I've done since having it, I only wish he built it from the beginning, cause NOBODY knows the engine like Ryne & his crew at CMS. The car is 99.99% done, when he did a baseline dyno pull the numbers, (668 rwhp, when tuned it'll be 700) were better than a ZR1 Corvette, forget the ZL1, that's breakfast I had a beat O2 sensor into my header, so that's being addressed and should done early next week, unless I'm surprised by a phone call tomorrow.






Thanks P, The wait is killing me but it'll be well worth it in the end. I know the speaker rings you mentioned, and the only shine on the inside, is my brushed kickplates with Carbon Fiber SS. Antidote Performance is making me some special covers to replace the Boston Acoustic badge on the speakers, since they're all Morel Supremos. I really don't want too much chrome or stainless inside and I know they make Black Billet rings, so i'll wait to get my custom Morel tabs first.

I did receive a box today of something I had custom made for both vehicles actually, so I'll open it up tomorrow and take some pics...They're unique & cool, so stay tuned..

It's supposed to control wheel spin, so you lock up faster.

John,
Okay, if you insist....How about a ride in that Beast you call a Camaro?...

That should just about do the trick....

Kurt ABL99...
You got it Brotha!!

Got some boxes today A little for each whip. The Tahoe along with the Iron Bull front & rear bumpers(In Route to Antidote Performance) got some new lens on all the corners. HID 4300K Halos up front & Smoked LEDs for the rear, along with a 60" LED Red & White (Reverse) Bar, and for both whips the got new custom Black Powder Coated Aluminum Diamond Plate mats. These things are SICK!!! The quality is unbelievable with exposed metal on the raised bars. Here's some more eye candy.


Tahoe Halo HIDs








Tahoe LEDs Tail Lights








Now check out these new mats, Real Diamond Plate Aluminum .050" Thick, Super Strong, yet Super Light-Weight with Glossy lettering. They WILL NOT rip, peel, dent, crack, tear, fade or smell!!!

Here's the Hoe's new mats






And for the ZLX They even have the holes cut out like the stock mats to keep locked in place, these really are SICK! Plus they go perfectly with my Matte/Glossy Black theme










Even for the rears







If anyone would like info on the Diamond Plate mats just shoot me a PM, the maker/owner Dean, is an awesome guy and is considering becoming a forum sponsor.

So obviously I DID NOT get my car back from CMS or I'd be at the Cars & Carne Asada event at Antidote Perfomance. Not because of CMS, but thanks to CMS & Ryne, he caught a couple of things that were done wrong by the dealership when installing the blower (imagine that??) & the shop that did my header install(That doesn't surprise me, considering they F**KED UP Dizzy's install, sorry for recommending them bro). I will say that when notified of the issue from the dealership, I notified SLP and they contact CMS directly and told Ryne to "send them the bill", now that's what I call service!!! To refresh, I bought the 5year/100K warranty from SLP for the Supercharger, so it really is nice to see such immediate reaction by SLP on this, so I did make the right choice. Also because of this, Ryne and Cunningham Motorsports is now a SLP Approved Installer & Repair Center, so anyone in Southern Cali that's interested in adding a Supercharger to your car, and you're worried about where to purchase, install or repair, SLP & CMS make the perfect match!

I WILL have the car back early next week. There was a forum member, SD2011SS at CMS yesterday getting a tune, and he sent me a PM asking if it was ok to snap a few pics, when I replied of course it was fine, I asked could you take a video so I could hear the car with the new cam, but unfortunately he had already left when he got my response, but in his PM he said it sounded SICK!!! Man, I can wait to get her home!!!

Skip shift is a simple bolt on, but you just have to lift the car. To conserve fuel, GM put a feature (more like a hindrance) that when you're going under 20mph in first and go to shift it blocks 2 & 3 rd gear and takes you to fourth. It's a real pain in the ass, and one of the first things I did and for how cheap it is, the one of the best mods done. I like your list, but forget the Predator Handheld and just find a good tuner. You're going to need it, especially if you add Meth. A good tuner is a life saver, and an engine saver and can work miracles pulling out all the power of your engine in the safest way possible. Handhelds are very basic. I even had my Tahoe tuned and it's 440+ RWHP and flys and it has a 6" lift. That's the only thing I can see changing on your list.

Don't go with the Aeromotive pump. It's a big pile of shit. Chose a different system like ADM's twin pump system, or even the ZL1 pump WITH the ADM electronics controller along side it.

This will save you many headaches, lol .

Kronix, I can't for you to get your car back homeslice. Good luck. It seems like the guys at CMS are taking care of you, as any good shop would and should.
