Arrow El Jimador- Kenne Bell CGM [COTW 3/10/14]

Car: 2010 1SS/RS Camaro "El Jimador"
Color: Cyber Grey Metallic
Bought: September 2010
Performance: Kenne Bell Supercharger (Installed by Spankin Time Motorsports and recently tuned by Izzy Performance), Noweeds Exhaust Diverters, Magnaflow Tru X pipe, resonator delete, Torq dual pass heat exchager w/ fans, KB BAP, 60# injectors, Corsa catback, JRE Super Tensioner, R1 slotted & Dimpled rotors cryogenically treated, Hawk Ceramic Pads...502rwhp and 471rwtq (this is with the 22" wheels on!)
Cosmetic: ZL1 Bumper w/ Mailslot, A62 Trufiber Carbon Fiber hood, Custom Emblem Pro Badge, painted calipers, 22" Giovanna kilis



Testing out the acceleration after recent tune in February 2014:


Fyi i didn't pay national park guy to say this...


Parts on hand: zl1 fuel pump, zl1 rockers


El Jimador name means the following to me: In mexico there is a guy that works his butt off in the hot sun to take the plants out of the ground. This plant is what makes up that tequila after processing. This car is daily proof that it can withstand heavy foot driving on a daily basis. Meant to be driven and admired.

























Switch for HID lights

Question on the painted bumper, we're the fog light bezels and lower grill painted or is that just bare plastic?

Why did you need a separate switch? The harness should let you tap into the stock rs HID and they will come on automaticly with them

Its to have an option to turn them on and off with either the headlights on or have them on with the fog lights during the day or have them on with just the halos on...i guess three different options with this switch.

Thanks. Since you know what it means then you can guess that im a big fan of tequila. I have a couple family members that are involved with El Jimador brand in Mexico and Jimador is one of my favorite tequilas. But im paying tribute to "El Jimador" which is the guy that is out there in the hot sun cutting the plant that makes up the tequila.

Yeah man, jumped on another good deal. You must have me mistaken for another guy with the same hood, car color and owner hahaWe'll see how it turns out- now im trying to decide if I should stick with the MT's or change it up with some Invo's...Iv'e had the stocks, hankooks, NT05's, and now the MT's..I've like the MT's by far though.

If you live in cali your wheels better make a statement. So i dropped the zl1 replica wheels idea. Time to load on these sick puppies 22" Giovanna Kilis. Waiting for the gorilla lock nuts so hopefully by this friday im riding high (not that type of high though) Im keeping my stock wheels for whenever i want to use all the horses. Im willing to give away some horsepower at this point lol

Mounted on these wheels are a set of Vredestein Ultrac SUV Sessanta tires.
Front wheels are 22x9" wrapped in a 265/35R22 XL
Rear wheels are 22x10.5" wrapped in a 315/30R22 XL
