Supercharged "Isabelle" build thread by MrGood.

Well guys. This here is Isabelle. My 2LT/RS place of pure pleasure. I got her three days after thanksgiving of '09 and fell in love. It's taken me a long time to start modifying her but ever since then it's been a snowball and now i'm going FI. I hope you enjoy the thread.

Here are some pictures of before.




Here is where the modding started. My wheels started flaking so I powder coated them satin black.



After that I realized the black wheels needed set off. So I painted the front an rear bowties and scratched the red that was already flaking off of the rs badge.



After that it needed more black so I went to the local graphics shop and got 4 4"x2' strips of flat black vinyl to make fender hashes.



And then with extra I decided to make bowtie cutouts and cover those side markers.





I said to myself and I said. It needs more black. So after trying three sets of eBay hood spears I found the ones! But they needed a little more because they looked like glares on the hood. The 3.6L decals really gave them depth.



Still needs more! Grrr. So I plasti dipped the lip, Camaro badges, and taillight bezels. That did it on the black.






The rs and complete bowties are black now.

After this I added a spectre 9909 cai



And got a trifecta tune at Rx performance.



Then I got a 3/8" vmax black iceolater from Rx Performance As well as a plenum spacer and paint matched vmax cnc ported throttle body! Sure felt that one!



Picked up some used OBX racing long tube headers from a fellow member. Waiting forever on hps to ship them and them getting here sticking out all sides of the box nearly gave me a heart attack. These were a fun install..

Today 6.15.12 announced I am getting a Rx SC kit put on by Tracy and the guys at Rx Performance.


Update:6.21.12 took some pictures of the car torn apart with the intercooler and piping on





Also removed the rally sport badge and replaced it with a Rx Supercharged decal

Have thought about a zl1 bumper. But decided no way. Got a torque converter, meth kit, billet pulley, super chiller, exhaust system, ported intake manifold, drop springs, and sways to get before I consider any other cosmetic stuff. Only reason mine has what it does is cause the cheap paint on the wheels was flaking so I got them powder coated. The rest was DIY and cost like 35$ total.

Probably. There was one but it wasn't very big. The pillar doesn't fit very well so I'm considering fabricating three pods onto my oem pillar myself.

Mine fit pretty well I'm surprised yours isn't. But I'd love to see the the gauges. What would be the 3rd gauge? Boost, wideband AFR, and?

well my exhaust sounded like shit after I replaced my mufflers with bullet mufflers so I picked up a bulky stock ls3 exhaust and painted it flat black to be a little stealthier.

Still thinking about painting the tips.
