Kami, That's the name of my 2013 2SS LS3

Well got word today she shipped. So here are the very first mods bought waiting for her to get here. I am also getting a Catch Can (probably Mike Norris) and will order a CAI from Bill after the break in period. Don't want to be tempted to romp on her to hard at first.

She is called Kami because that was my wifes online handle 15 years ago when we started talking using ICQ on the net. Kansas boy and Jersey girl meet and end up Alabama Red Necks

SLP Skip Shift and have to support my Wildcats. Personal plate will stay the same as what is on the Bee, LUV2ROC

Nope, still lost somewhere in the world. She stayed in Canada till the last weekend drinking Molson and scaring Mustangs I have been told. She is now hung over and been put on a train to come home to her dad for a scolding.

Got word she was in Louisville, Kentucy last night. So that is 7 hours or so from Birmingham, Alabama. That is where they get loaded on trucks. That is only 3 hours from my dealer. In theory she could be here tomorrow but I never have that good of luck. Sure would love to have her for the weekend.

GM subwoofer put in today. Not to drastic in bass, cleans things up but it put in some hip hop it rocks the car like I am from the hood.

Listening to rock and country it sounds nice and really fills out the sound of the system. You do loose the trunk pass thru though. You can still get to the battery and tire filler box just fine.

Can the rubber mat come out or is it now "fixed" there?

I do like the looks of that set up and I haven't ever had my rear seats down.

Congrats on the new Camaro......let the modding begin, again.

Hotchkis Chassis Brace installed today. Good bye wheel hop!! Now I can romp her and not worry about loosing an axle. The wheel hop was much worse than the Bee every had so did not get on her much till today.

Well last week put in an entire 1LE 3.91 differential. Wow this car now pulls like nuts. 2nd gear feels like the old 1st gear. Happy I am.
