Upgraded V6 camaro to SS

Well, it seems my wife pulled the trigger before me. I'd been following F.I. threads and working with people here to Supercharge my baby, researching what upgrades would be needed to handle the power and solve the fuel issues. I'd been following gretchens build and was impressed and contacted SC2150 to help with my build. Everything was set, and since I'm in Afghanistan (Army) I called my wife and told her to send the check. Instead (she has general power of attorney) she traded the V6 and bought me an SS. She said she was tired of my whining about not enough aftermarket support for us V6's So be it known, I will always have big love for these fantastic V6's, but now I will begin modding my awesome SS!

Thanks guys,

here's a pic she sent me, It's a phone pic and not centered but when your wife buys you an SS you keep your mouth shut about little details

It's a used 2010 she got for $24,000 and drove from Missouri to Minnesota and back to get. Still under warranty and great price! (She only has one brother though)

It's an M6 2SS RS and I believe she said it had a moonroof.
