Canadian Orange Peel Build

I have been impatiently waiting for the right time to start a thread on here. I bought my car in the spring of 11 new off the lot. 2011 2SS 6M IOM with white stripes. It was love at first sight, it was parked beside a much cheaper silver Camaro but It was worth the extra money.

At first I was happy with the car just the way it was. I was babying it and trying to take care of it but not having a garage seemed to be an issue. Over the summer the car had to endure two hail storms. I couldn't even take pictures I was so upset. It was fixable with paintless dent repair after the first one but the second one really did some major denting.

I sucked it up and sent it to the body shop and had to get a new hood, roof and trunk. The whole car was repainted again. I realized it was a great chance though to paint the stripes on. They are now a tri peral white and look really clean.

Now since the car was in the shop I started having the dreams that keep us up all night about modding the car. I have had several months of searching this site and the web trying to decide what to do...

On Tuesday my decisions are going to finally be put in to action. The parts are in and the car is still quietly sitting at the shop. Attached are some pictures to give a hint on what the mods are. The build starts Tuesday but since I am 800ish KM's away I will have to rely on the shop to take the photos for me to show to you guys so I might not have anything right away.

It's driving me crazy not having more pictures yet. I'm going to be able to get to the shop on the 13th to see it myself and get some of my own pics. With any luck it will be running so I get get a vid. Once I get more pics then I'll update you guys with the rest of the goodies I went with. Almost none are exterior though because I'm boring that way.

Engine runs

So I got to the shop and they did the first fire about an hour before I got there. I didn't get any video because the car needs to get on the dino and start tuning before it is run too much.

The 454 is in along with the FAST 102 intake and rails. CAI cold air of course.

2" headers from SW with 3" to the back. Have the muscle car mufflers on there right now but it was a little quiet so we might be switching them out.

Aeromotive fuel pump upgrade

Trany still stock but now have the ZR1 twin disk clutch and aluminum fly wheel.

1.5 " drop and some Eibach suspension parts going in but still waiting on a couple things.

Hope to get the car tuned in the next couple weeks and personally see it on the dino the first week of April.

First Award

1st for outstanding in class and we are still not done working on the car. It helps that we live in a less populated province

Exhaust Video



3" Stainless works with retro. Warm engine idle LSX 454

The car has done a couple runs on the dyno and gets between 570-580 RWHP and about 520 torque. I can't believe people are wanting more HP then that because this is already more then enough then is fun in the city

thanks to the guys in the R&D at GM for hooking me up with a prototype MAFs to read the right flows and not get affected by the resonant vibrations from the 454. It's working great so far. Only problem now is that we keep getting the service stabilitrack warnings
