You working on performance or aesthetic mods?

All my modding is on hold, no major changes before the rally for me. Not sure I can take AFM much longer and I am not will to tune and lose my warranty so I am not certain I will keep this car much longer. But don't worry; the next car will be an another Camaro, auto as well, this time without AFM. Hint, Hint!

Since the last Rally, I've bought another Camaro and poured money into it lol. Looks like I'll be finishing up a few last minute mods too. Just ordered the JRE Posi mod, upgraded brake lines, HPS Pads, line lock, BMR differential bushings and I have 3.91's to throw in at the same time. Next week will be busy

I like your thinking and it's not entirely out of the realm of possibility. But I did not say I would be trading / selling it only that “I am not certain I will keep this car much longer”. In short, SS = Wife, ZL1 = Me!

Problem is when I propose this to my wife I am going to get the “I told you to get a ZL1 to begin with” speech and the “we don’t need 2 Camaro’s speech” (because she really wants a Challenger). So this will not be an easy negotiation but I will not sell the SS and take a 5-6K loss. Hell it's not even 3 month olds and less then 1300 miles.

So it either means your going back to a LT or your getting a ZL1. My guess is that it's not the first one

Welcome to my Club - I traded my 2SS/RS in for the ZL1 as I had convinced myself the ZL1 was everything I needed straight from the factory and I could keep it completely stock forever.

It was completely stock for 2 days

No, I didn't have powder coated wheels last year. I bought the wheels I have now already powder coated a couple months ago. Then Monday I ordered a set of aftermarket wheels. Today I dropped the car off for custom painted stripes and some other things.

Had to go for looks for this round. Not much left on my performance mod list (tune and high flow cats). I got P13W plasma drls a few weeks back and a set of ghosted side markers are on the way now. Both ordered from Southwest Speed.

Thinking of hitting up Emblem Pros for the under hood bowtie, dash plaque, and maybe the Team LFX emblem too.
