Gonna need some tires before C5 fest. Im thinking Nitto Motivos just because I put at least 12k miles a year on the car.

Just dont know what size to get for the front, 245/45 or 255/35 or 255/45?

Probably going to get rims next year, so ill be keeping the stock rims for now.

Just ordered my wheels from dougfr from Factory reproductions and he is super helpful for these types of questions. I am going with the 9" front and 10" back for a better looking stance. These still go with the PZero's I have and allows me to go to a 275/40R20 and 295/40R20 in the future.
Hope this helps.
Again you Cam swap is BAD ASS!

Thanks man, I've had them in my head for a year or two and never had the chance to photoshop them. Some ppl probably won't like them, but I think they will look great in person.

Thanks! I wish I could get them sooner lol. Really need t oget some tires soon.

I dont know about you, but my car has seemed to "calm down" after a couple weeks of driving, hard to explain but I guess maybe the ecm learns whats going on.

It doest rock/buck as much/hard at stoplights and is better from a cold start than it was initially, and seems to just drive better.

Or maybe im just getting used to it. Either way, i love it even more, it never stops pulling!
My only concern is getting traction at the track.

Well somehow during the cam install I lost my freon lol. Didnt think that was possible since I didnt disconnect or break anything so of course I checked fuses, relays, etc first.

Bought a can of refrigerant and put it in and everything works again. Not that I need the a/c right now anyway.

I know this isnt car-related, but I became a CPA today, CPA exam is a huge bitch that ive been studying on and taking the different sections over the past couple years. Now that its done I finally have time to do stuff with my car, go to shows, and race etc.

Congrats! I know how hard you had to study for the CPA Exam. Never took it but I have a degree in accounting and had friends take it. Enjoy the new found free time and congrats again. You deserve it.

Ran 11.91 !! On street tires!

I was one of two N/A cars in the 11's this weekend that I could find. I was running dead even with a few ZL1's too at the fest this weekend. The other N/A 11's car unfortunately broke his rear end on Friday.
