Yeah, it was great that the Nav/GPS started right up without any extra subscriptions. I am really happy with the MyLink upgrade!

Thanks a lot! I hope you guys are doing well! To me, the devil is in the details, so I am always looking for the little stuff that may not seem like a major change, but really sets the car apart from others.

Thanks! I really appreciate all of your help working through my install issues. On the console, I installed the leather on the console myself, but I will PM a link to the leather I used.

I can make a video for you. Are you just wanting to see the MyLink work or specifically see it work in a retrofit car?

I posted this in a new thread over in the photo forum, but since this is my build thread, they belong here as well. Since I finally have my exterior mods all done and I am really happy with the current look of the car, so I decided to have some photos taken by a local photographer that specializes in cars. I think you will see from the photos below, the guy has some talent. I particularly love the rolling shots, but they all turned out great so I wanted to share.

































Let me know what you think!

After much debate and anticipation, I decided to take my performance mods to the next level. About a week and a half ago I dropped my car off with Chad Barton at CBI Street Cars just South of St. Louis for a cam install and upper pulley swap. While we were at it, I had the supercharger snout ported, and a solid isolator installed. I ended up going with the BTR Stage 3 cam, the BTR platinum spring kit with titanium retainers, chromoly rods, and we did the Comp Cams trunion upgrade. For the upper pulley, I went with a 2.55, and we switched to NGK TR6 plugs, and a HD greenback belt.

Dave Steck with DSX Tuning worked his magic and really dialed in the car. He also completely rewrote the trans tune, which I had been have some issues with.

I am extremely happy with the results in both power and sound. The S/C screams now at WOT, and the lope at idle is great. I also love that when cruising the car still basically sounds stock. While I haven't put it on the dyno, Chad felt that i should be around 650rwhp and the car should get into the 10's on the drag strip. The weather here is great this week, so I'll be working on a new PB on Friday at the strip.

Here is a quick video I took of my cold start-up.



Unfortunately, these mods maxed out my fuel system, so an upgrade there is going to need to be in my future. I am leaning towards an E85 Flex-Fuel conversion for both it's power and it's cooling effect on the engine. I also need to start addressing my cooling, which the E85 should help with also. So far I am completely stock on the cooling system.

Great additions, can barely hear the cam. If you could get a video with you driving it, it would be nice. You have one of the baddest if not the baddest AGM ZL1s I'm jealous

Thanks! I will try to get a video driving for you sometime soon. In the meantime, here is a video of a warm engine start-up. The cam lope is more noticeable in this video.
