I got on the forum and the modding began.
I did a few things to it, nothing too big.

Then about a year and half later when my sister wrecked her car, she got my car and got upgraded to the V8.

Me and my dad went to pick it up the dealership on October 22, sorry no pics at the dealership it was dark. We drove it straight home and I loved it. As soon as we got home we switched the hoods off the v6 onto the v8.

The modding had only begun from that point.

When I was at car show I heard a rumble come pulling in and was wondering where it came from. It came from a Camaro pulling in and I asked him what he did to it and where. He told me he went to Lethal Racing and had them put in their Night Fury Cam. I knew that would be my next mod. So the following summer I saved up money so I could get a cam. I saved up enough money to get and went with Lethal's Prowler cam. I dropped the car off on July 30, 2012 and let Shawn and Nick go to work. I had them install the cam with Stainless Works 1 7.8" headers and LS3 Conversion.

Corsa exhaust installed, and because I'm OCD I polished it about a week later along with cleaning the entire underside of the car.

Next came suspension, it was a blast to put everything on. Plus it was like Christmas in summer with all the boxes I kept getting in the mail. The lift sure did make it nice installing all the parts too.
