I appreciate the compliment. Never been a fan of white either as this was my first white car. When I bought the car, the orange interior against the white and orange stripes is what did it for me.

CamaroFest 4

So this was the highlight of the fest for me. Some guy named Al (you may recognize him) stopped by at the car show and made my day!

Performance Mods for Inferno

After doing some research and talking with several people, I pulled the trigger last month on some major performance mods for Inferno. Several options were on the table as to who I might choose to do the work and after several emails and phone conversations, I felt really comfortable leaving my car in the hands of the folks at NicKey Chicago. Stefano and I talked about what my goals were and we went from there. I visited their shop/museum and even went for a ride in a Stage II ZL1 conversion. That ride was all I needed to move forward.

Here's a list of pretty much all the work performed. I think I have most of it on here:

· Magnuson TVS2300 Supercharger including Rear Cog Overdrive, 3.4” Pulley & Belt, Super Tensioner
·NicKey Stage II CAM Kit including Custom Length Push Rods, 3 Bolt CAM Gear, High Performance Valve Springs, Valve Locks & Seals
·L99 to LS3 Conversion Kit including LSA Head Gaskets, Head Bolts, Valley Cover Assembly, Lifters, Lifter Trays & Bolts, Crank Bolt, Timing Cover Assembly
·NicKey Stage II CNC Ported Heads
·ZL1 Dual Fuel Pump
·ZL1 Controller
·Kenne Bell Boost-A-Pump
·Yank 3200 Torque Converter
·Driveshaft Shop 1000hp Axles
·Driveshaft Safety Loop
·ADM Transmission Cooler
·Rocker Trunions
·ZL1 Map Sensor
·RX Catch Can
·NicKey Custom Dyno Tune & Data Logger

Here's our base line dyno run:

Stefano said they dialed it back a bit before reaching this comfortable number. Here's the final dyno run:

Finished product, the day I picked up Inferno. It was a sweet 2 1/2 hour ride back home that day. Can't thank Stefano, Corey, and all the great people at NicKey Chicago. What a pleasure to do business with them. They are certainly passionate about Camaro's of all years. Highly recommend them.

Thanks, and loved running around the course. Wish there wasn't anyone in front of me though. I could easily get hooked on that but probably need some suspension and brake work before I were to get serious about it.

It's been a while so...

Didn't do much this year, but finally took some pictures and thought I would get what I did do on record.

Pete (Mr. Showstopper) painted my mirrors Carbon Flash.

Blacked out the tail lights including the bezels, and had my exhaust tips and trim rings powdercoated black.

Lupe @ River City Creations painted up my center console and seat trim pieces. Also shown are my custom door sill plates from The Billet House.

Lastly, for grins and giggles, I had to include this pic I took of the front end at dusk. I did have to black out a small portion of the sky, but I really liked how it turned out.

Thanks for the kind words on the car. The spoiler is a MPD1 spoiler and the Euro 33 chrome concave wheels were purchased from Best Wheel Deals. They do not make those wheels any longer but you can find similar rims.

Cool! Carbon Flash is one of my favorite colors and great for accents on any of the other Camaro colors.

What hood did you go with?
