I thought the same until I started talking to the right people. If u want to be fast in the 1/4 mile its all about nitrous with our cars. The supercharger and turbo units are just not that great and for the price they come at its crazy. With nitrous ill be able to at least keep up with v8s and 5.0s.

I also dont want to go crazy with looks. I want to keep it simple and mean looking. Im going to remove the stripes soon and go either all cgm with black wheels or gloss black wheels with gloss black stripes.

Got any other ideas?

Nice progress on your build. Running nearly 14 flat is great! Ghost stripes may work as well. Anything done on engine bay and interior cosmetics yet?

The engine bay is nearly stock. It cleaned up when I added the vararam but thats about it. The interior is also pretty much stock except for footwells

Do you know if you car has a posi/limited slip differential, do both tires spin or just one side? If it's an open diff, a posi/limited slip would be something you should try to do.

If it already limited slip, you might be able to better your 60 ft by rolling out rather than stomping on the gas when you launch.

It's an open differential. I would do the posi but to do the swap, it would be about 1500 in parts.

Can you just buy a different carrier or can you swap in a SS rear?

Just a posi swap should get you that 13.9 pass.

Yes, many of the v6s have already swapped in SS rears but that swap is 1500. Because it requires quite a bit of parts.

I bought them through a vendor on here, send a message to camaro2lt and he can get you set up with a set. They set me back about 700 for them and then you have to buy a harness to get them to work on a non-rs car that was another 150

So how do you like the RS headlights compared to the retrofit you did a while back? Your car is coming along when I first started.

It's honestly a 50/50. I like the RS lights just fine but really love the "white" halos. I hated the pinkish/blueish "white" I got with RGB halos. I do miss all the colors though. It was pretty cool at times. I did like the light output on the retrofit though. It's not a massive massive difference between the retrofit and RS lights but with the retrofit, it was a slightly better throw and wider as well. It's not a big difference. If you didn't know what to look for, chances are you couldn't even tell the difference. I also had 5000K on my retrofit which I really loved. The 4300K is good but the 5000K I guess I just liked better.

Just let me know if you want to go to the track a friday and I'll go with you if you want. I love going to make a few passes. Hopefully, in a few weeks I'll have some more mods

Do you plan to get the new RGBW LEDs that Ofer just came out with?

Yea but probably not for awhile. I'm getting some stuff shipped in right now and will probably finish off the performance part of the car while I'm at it. Well at least be close to finishing. I'll then focus on appearance.

Replaced my non-RS taillights with RS taillights! Here's a pic of the difference between the two! RS on the right and non-RS on the left

Seeing the "simplest" trim go from "nothing" to something cool is sick! Love it!

Had a little time over spring break so I decided to have the car undergo some "surgery". I removed the red!
