Bianca

Bianca was built on 01/12/2011, delivered to the dealership on 02/01/2012 and I drove her home that same day.

This is my 6th Sports car, it's kind of in my blood.

Previous - 1990 Trans Am GTA, 1995 Firebird Formula, 2000 Trans Am WS6, 2000 Cmaro Z28, 2004 GTO.

I had never purchased a Brand New car before ( 22 at the time) so I told myself (like everyone I think) that I was going to leave it alone and just enjoy it for a bit. Woops

I finally took the car out to a couple meets and that's where I met the best car club in the world, H-Town Camaro Club. (They are the best people but my bank account hates them). Bianca was never the same from there on out.

First items ordered were a Vararam intake and BMR Split Drop Springs.
I installed the Vararam myself then had A.R.D. install the Drop Springs. With that I also did a muffler delete to give a little more sound to here.

Looking good so far! Did you notice a difference with the underdrive pulley? Been thinking about getting one but wasn't sure.

Now I had a little extra power it was time to hit the track and see how she ran.

I purchased a set of C5 Z06 wheels off a member on here and then ordered a set of Mickey Thompson ET Street Drag Radials to go with them.

Car went 12.22 @ 115 at Camaro Nationals and then was always between 12.0 and 12.4.

Here's a video of a 12.4 run.

Now comes the horrow stories. 2 vandalisms within 6 months of each other. It was a horrible half a year.

1st Event - October 30th, 2011.
Driving home from a softball game a bunch of ()*^#%^() kids deicded theyt want to throw rocfks and cement blocks onto cars. Needless to say they hit my car with one while i was driving down the road.

Link to the original thread.

2nd Event - April 17th, 2012
I walked out to my car from the gym and found my Driver's Side glass laying on the ground. Wallet missing, glass everywhere, and scratches all down the door. It was a horrible night.

Picture after paint, and new tint.

I soon got used to the current horepower (it's a curse) so I had to decide what was in store for the car next......NITROUS!

We did a custom Cold Fusion Nitrous Install. Due to the Vararam we weren't able to do the regular plate system so we tapped into the throttle body and did a port into that.
Also with the Vararam there is that out of place whole left from the factory air box, not any more. We did a custom Fuel cell that fits in the perfectly and holds 116 for the spray.

Had a CupHolder Switchplate made for all my switches and Pressure gauge.

On the dope Bianca put down 553hp and 632trq!

While it was in the shop also had BMR Trailing Arms installed.

First time out to the track on Spray was AWESOME. With the NOS Launcher we can controll almost everything involving th enitrous. The night was a test for it to see how we wanted to spray. Best run was with the N2O starting @ 80% and progressing in over .8 seconds which resulted in a 11.65 @ 126 mph.

Tire upgrade is in the works and then I'll be back out and find the 10s hoepully.

It's hard to say as it was installed the same time as the Longtubes, exhaust, Throttle Body and tune.
