Black 2015 2SS/RS 1LE Build "Darth Vader"

Hey guys just thought I'd start logging my progress on my new 2015 1LE. I joined the Marines in 2014 and when I hit the fleet I decided to buy a car a few months before I went on my first deployment. I bought a 2014 Summit White 1LS

I pretty much kept it stock and I went on deployment for 7 months. Came back February of 2015 and as soon as I got back I invested most of my money into the appearance of the car. I bought 20 inch Lexani Forged 707 wheels and NITTO 420s tires. 245-45-20 in the front and 285-40-20 in the back


After a while I started to get used to the speed of the car... Getting teased by all my buddies at work and by other V8's and 4 cyl turbo and 6 cyl turbo cars on the streets, I figured it's time for a change. I sold my car privately to a buddy and began my search for a V8.







I bought this 2015 2SS/RS 1LE at 7k miles for $31,000 and now I've been glued to this site trying to figure out exactly what I want to do. So far all I have is 1" BMR springs and a AirRaid CAI. I just got an invoice for JDP motorsports for kooks 1 7/8 Long tube headers and a Cam install and tune. Its gonna be close to $5,000 so I have to save up for a few months. I'm going on deployment again in October so for now that's my pre deployment goal. As soon as I get back I plan on sending my car into the shop to get all forged internals and then save up for a Supercharger or Pro charger. Stay tuned for more updates.
