Murdered M1SS1LE



Here's a little information about my car.
More pictures and videos will be coming!
2014 Camaro 1SS 1LE
(thread is a work in progress)

A little about my car:

I purchased my car the end of September 2013. Was just browsing cars online, not really serious about buying anything just wanted one eventually. Found my car, call the next day and put money down on it to hold it, then purchased that weekend. Got to drive it a couple months and put about 1400 miles on it before having to put it away for the winter. Over the summer of 2014 I took it to Maryland and Canada, got headers and exhaust installed and enjoyed driving it. Went to many car shows, A few road course HPDE events, and the drag strip once. Put the car away with about 6500 miles on it.

I purchased an AGP Twin Turbo kit used from a member on here beginning of this year and did the install in my garage with jack and jackstands. Had help from friends a couple times, but I am glad I decided to do it myself. It saved me quite a bit of money and was definitely a learning experience. I was able to look and see how each part of the kit was attached and the function of it. This whole thing has been a learning experience, but it definitely made my wallet a little lighter lol.

I had my car tuned on 5.5lbs and no water/meth and no boost controller since I ran out of days before I wanted to tune. I will get retuned when I installed water/meth and my boost controller. Only being home 1-2 days a week kind of limits my availability to work on the car. I just wanted to be able to play with the car. I can add the water/meth at anytime and get tuned for it, so I have no worries .

I see more modifications in the future, the only thing holding me back is the money.


Current Modifications:

Engine/Driveline:
AGP Twin Turbo Kit
Custom turbodown exhaust (exits @ transmission crossmember)
850cc Injectors
Holley LS Fuel Rails

You won't look back when you do! I love them. I do have a possible issue but not sure if it is an issue or what is causing it. Still fun though.

According to a couple guys behind me, the car had white smoke coming out the exhaust when under boost. But only under boost, not at idle, not on decel, and not on acceleration without boost.

I'm personally not sure if it is smoke or just dust coming off the road, but it could possibly be smoke and maybe from the turbos? I know there was some oil residue on top of the wastegates when I put them back on, so that could be it as well... so not sure.
