I know someone will ask, so might as well be me. What wheels are those?

Looks killer!

How did the Havoc rear diffuser work out for you? Is the fit good on it?

Great choice on the Anvil spoiler man, I could not imagine any other spoiler on my car at this point. Sick ride man! I have my cam going in next Friday and can't wait.....hope I am as happy as you are in the end.

^thanks all. she's a ton of fun as you all know. Sat night after one of our local NM DesertFest car show & shine we did some runs late that night. killed a M6 Cobra from a dig and a 15mph roll. I then raced a bone stock M6 Vette... he let off and i breezed past him... we was barely doing 118mph... last race was with a local great guy with a RX7 with a LSX swap... car is a beast, he gave me a car length from a dig... by 120mph... he was coasting a car length past me... great night!

as for the Havoc Diffuser - EXCELLENT choice. fitment is perfect. no mods, shaving, or any sort of "adjustments" were needed. we did remove the rear bumper.

The Anvil Carbon Fiber spoiler - another great choice! many people have asked where I got it from. sign up for a waiting list if you want one

The wheels... haha - great input all with the Vossen suggestion... but actually their: Niche Milans. 20x10 front, 20x11 rear wrapped 255/35 and 295/35.

here's a few pics from the car show:


under the hood you can see CAI, i had the engine cover and fusebox hydro dipped red carbon fiber... but since the entire exterior is Carbon Flash Metallic and natural carbon fiber look, I will be changing that up... i wanted to add some color under the hood... but now i regret the red. the gorgeous one is my girl "Lav"
she managed to video all the races that night... (if she would send me the damn vids now) lol


carbon fiber vynl wrap on the fuel door

taillights are blacked out with a tint film 30%

#SWS #southwestspeed bishes

all side markers are blacked out with tint film

BMR 1.4" front/rear

i like the way she sits and rides

cometics - plan to paint the calipers red and swap brake pads to remove/rid of the huge roller skates up front. plan is to change wheels to WELDS

ORACLE LED lighting up front - lady friend likes playing with them


I'm in NM - met some interesting people in the LS community. a big thanks goes out to a great friend they call Ivan Price from #SWS #SouthwestSpeed.

up next on the car is LT Headers (in the air for delivery as we speak) so i will be selling my Doug Thorley Short Tube Headers and the SOLO High Flow J pipes (cats)
both 6 months old. reason I'm going LT headers - its a better fit for the power adder soon to come i want to bolt on 200+hp which will definitely put me over 600hp...
we'll see how this LS3 conversion holds up along with the A6...

thanks all~

That is his girlfriend or wife.

Also, posting about street racing on here will get this thread locked real fast. Please be careful in general with street racing. I've seen some nasty wrecks. Please keep it off the street and at the track.

Car looks great though!

Any pics of it with the hood closed? I'd like to see how it looks without the 45th graphics on it.

here's a pic with her and hood closed. I immediately removed that red/grey stripe combo from her… I'ma badgeless, stripeless kinda guy however… since she goes by: #Carbon i really like the carbon fiber HashMarks:



@DesertCamaro - thank you sir. these wheels/tires do get some attention… for that I'm really shocked
