JDP Motorsports 2011 1SS/RS LS3 "Silver Shark" Build!

Hi Everyone!!!

JDP Motorsports is excited to start the build on our 2011 1SS/RS LS3 Camaro! We have a lot of exciting things planned for the build up of this beast and we'll do a few different configurations through out the process. The plan is to build a road race/open road race/standing mile car that has great street manners. Horsepower is always very important but we aren't going to forget about the most important aspect of HP and torque, putting it to the ground!




The first order of business is to get this thing breathing better! Less than 12 hours after bring the Camaro to the shop was the installation of an Airaid 250-243 CAI system. With less than 100 miles on the clock an immediate performance difference was felt!

Before



After



We then installed a Hurst shifter to give us a more positive shift engagement feel. I like the look and feel of this shifter and we will also try a few other brands so we can give a good evaluation after using multiple set ups.




Today we're installing a Magnaflow 16483 which is the 3" Comp Series cat-back system. We choose this system because of our eventual horsepower and toque goals of 700-800 RWHP and RWTQ.

Our goal with this project is to assemble packages that have real world testing and work in conjunction with each other. This will be a very exciting build and please feel free to ask questions and make suggestions at any time, we want this to be an interactive build! You can also follow this on our JDP Motorsport Facebook page and the JDP website when it is launched at the end of this month. If you become a fan of JDP on Facebook you'll be eligible for monthly give-a-ways and specials no one else gets!

Please feel free to call, email or PM us anytime with questions! Have a good one!

Kind regards,

Jordan Priestley

Thanks everyone! This will be an exciting build!!

I got the Magnaflow 16483 3" Comp Series Cat-Back installed and it already sounds a lot better. I'll give it about 1000 miles before I record some sound files and then we'll be installing some Long Tube Headers!

Stock System (Those cans are ugly!)




Stock H-Pipe



Magnaflow 16483





Magnaflow Tru-X Crossover


I noticed more throttle response and it pulls harder from 3K RPM up. I've installed the 16483 quite a few times and this is my favorite Magnaflow system for our cars. Our Camaro currently has 1100 miles on it so at 2100 miles we'll be doing some sound clips.

The next planned mod is going to be Long Tube Headers with converters along with some suspension work, oh and we'll be installing a catch can as well. Please feel free to call, email or PM me anytime with questions! Have a good one and I'll update soon and often!

Kind regards,

Jordan Priestley

Mike,

This should be pretty exciting and we'll be trying various combination's to find the best overall packages which we will then offer. I'm glad you're enjoying your 16483, I LOVE that system!!!! I will more than likely be giving the MGW a try here in the near future, how are you liking it?!?!

Thanks!!!! We appreciate your business and support!!! We'll keep the updates flowing, the next install will be the Elite Engineering catch can which I know you've had a part in dialing in!!! I'm really looking forward to it!!

NICE!!!!! I'm looking forward to doing our LT's shortly along with our Cam and intake manifold!!! The combination you're running is my favorite and will probably be the same route we end up going as well.



The next mod will be our Elite Engineering catch can, this is a MUST have!!!! I don't care if you're 100% stock or making 800 RWHP, everyone needs one!!!! I'll post a write up along with pictures next week! Have a great weekend everyone!!!

Kind regards,

Jordan Priestley

I installed an Elite Engineering catch-can a few weeks ago and I couldn't be happier!!! This is a MUST for any LS engine IMHO!! The Elite can is extremely nice and the install is very straight forward!





I'll add pictures with my line routing as well!!! This is a worth while investment and we have them in stock at great prices! The next install will be Pfadt Sub-frame mounts!!!

Kind regards,

Jordan Priestley

Looks good. Needs more power.

I got a MGW shifter on my car if you want to play with one. Probably a bit different but you could get an idea atleast.

I apologize for the delayed updates! My projects always seem to get the back burner but that is how it goes! I added a bunch of great parts this last week!! I installed the Pfadt Drop Springs, Pfadt Race Sways w/endlinks, Pfadt Sub-Frame Mounts, Pfadt Rear Upper Poly C-Arm Bushing, Spohn Delsphere trailing arms/toe-links and KOOKS 1 7/8" LT's!!!! I still have the Pfadt front radius bushings as well as the new Pfadt shifter to install before Camaro5Fest but I can't wait!!!

KOOKS


Pfadt and Spohn




I posted pictures HERE and I'll add them to the thread when I have a chance. In terms of my impressions...... We'll it is a completely different car! I've build and set up a few chassis and I knew what to expect but it really made MY Camaro more enjoyable to drive. The responsiveness and everything about it kicks ass! I will do a write up of the drive from UT to AZ and my overall impression of the Car during the drive as well as the time at C5Fest! I will also be instructing in the Pfadt HPDE event and using the Silver Shark for some fun laps.

Have a good one and I'll update SOON!!!

Kind regards,

Jordan Priestley

The catch-can basically pulls oil vapor from the factory PCV system and doesn't allow it to get into your intake. You'd be amazed how much crap gets put back into these things which leads to carbon build up and ultimately lose of power. We offer the for $165 shipped! Please feel free to call, email or PM me anytime with questions.

I've installed some more goodies on the Silver Shark and I will post up the pictures and info shortly. I wanted to share a video from the Pfadt Track Assult.

This is a rough video using a phone from inside my Camaro. What a great time! That was Erik from Torq in front of me the entire run. The Torq Camaro has Toyo R888's, a cam, ported heads, Pfadt Stage 5 and better brakes. Very well set up! The Silver Shark was on stock tires with a Pfadt Stage 3 as well as stock brakes. I did have a chance to drive UHP's Camaro with the coilovers and those are my next suspension mod along with a Comp Cam and a Fast Intake. This was a very fun event!



I met some awesome people and THANKS again to Pfadt for an AWESOME event! I can't wait until next year!!!

Kind regards,

Jordan Priestley

I haven't updated my build thread for along time now and I've done A LOT!! I installed a Cam with all of the supporting hardware, Pfadt diff bushings and front Radius rod bearings, Pfadt engine mounts, JDP CTS-V Brake Conversion, DSS Stage 5 Axles w/road race mod, VMAX TB, 2012 Heater Hoses and Fuel Line mod. I will start adding pictures from all of these mods.



It ended up putting down decent power but next up is a JDP NA 515 RWHP Package that will include our JDP Monster NA Cam, Comp Springs and retainers, Fast Intake Manifold, GMPP CNC Ported LS3 heads, Innovators West 10% reduction damper and a JDP tune.



Stay Tuned for updates and thanks for following my build!

Kind regards,

Jordan Priestley

I need to update this thread more often!!! We've been slammed but a lot has changed on the JDP Camaro!

I've done a lot lately getting ready for Camaro5 Fest. I installed some Forgeline GW3R 20x10 F 20x11 R with 285 F 315 R Toyo R888, Fast intake manifold w/fuel rails, Pfadt Gen2 Coilovers, Anvil Carbon spoiler and a lot more... The wheels look awesome though!!!









We're sitting at 490 RWHP and 446 RWTQ at the moment and we still have heads to do... I will add everything else here shortly and feel free to follow us on FaceBook for updates!!

Kind regards,

Jordan Priestley
