Red= weight loss Green=Weight Gain

Starting Weight: 3749 _________Estimated Weight: ~3612.91
Weight Loss: 135.81lbs

Exhaust: Stock:48lbs MRT v2:19lbs --> 29lbs

Well I can't find it posted anywhere. So if I'm wrong just let me know. This young man is on this computer searching all the time 4 info. on these Camaros talking to so many people about suggestions. Personnel ideas what they think of his mods. The work he has had to do out doors tools he had to purchase. Not to mention the tight quarters he worked in once he had a garage to work in. The testing he has done cutting the weight off of it.

With out any more appraisel for a job well done so far. I nominate kjkjr27 for car of the week. Come on guys lets get the voting started.
