Very Nice. To each their own. Out of the 2810 of the 2012 45Th SS's made, there is one less "Orignal" one out there "Possibly" making the "Survivors" a little more of value. GO FOR IT BOYS MOD THE HELL OUT OF YOUR 45TH'S !!

You mean a 45th boosting 15+ psi won't be collectible? Better sell this stuff Thanks man, hope you're enjoying yours!

Who says you can't put it back to stock? Keep all the parts you remove.

I'll keep the stock stuff, but I wouldn't want to rebuild the motor again, it'll be worth it when it's done; gotta have some fun right?

would love to see them. LOL, our snow won't be melting here until spring but I want to decide on my wheels by Jan. I decided I don't want mesh, and I am liking the 5 spoke. Not sure on Split or solid yet. I am liking these M2's. Also Bonspeeds Huntigtons, and a few others. I keep coming back to the M2's though .

I've definitely been happy with the M2s, they are a nice and clean look. I'm provably getting a drag setup through true forged, you should look at theirs, nice stuff and a lot better price!

Thanks Dent, it's just the beginning!

Screw collector value, I have my camaro to drive the wheels off, and it looks like you're doing the same! Hell yeah!!!

Love those rims now that I've seen them up close and different pics.

New differential, axles, trailing arms, toe rods, and BMR's complete pro bushing kit. I then have subframe connectors to put in as well, hopefully all of the wheel hop will be gone

That thing is a beast. I've seen you post on here but had no idea that 45th was that hooked up. What a sleeper. I love it. I love the thought of a sleeper but I think mine is going to end up looking a little more evil once the stage 4 and TSW's go on. Great job with the ride!

The 45th does not look like a sleeper even in stock trim

Well, the rear suspension is finished, front and rear coilovers hung, strut tower brace drilled and mock up fitted. Front suspension is also finished. Ended up going with the GT9 camshaft, and LPE dual fuel system. Once the pump gets here, the rear end can back into the car. Motor is on its way out tomorrow!

Oh I almost forgot, I got some spray on the way too

Take lots of pics of the lpe pump install. I'm going to be doing this in a few weeks and I'll need all the help I can get! Awesome build so far!

Thanks! I'll try to get as many pics as I can, hoping to get the pump in within the week. Had a hold up with the motor, so it isn't out yet. Here's the latest pic:
