Ordered a splitter off eBay today. Should finish off the winter mods. Pics to come as soon as it gets here. Will be a nice break from the home project I am currently working on (countertops and backsplash)

My wife has a Purdue and IU Degree which would be highly embarrassing but it is a doctorate so I guess I can live with it.

Lol. BS '92. I stopped with one. Unfortunately, but your wife had team worth watching this year. My alumni dollars going towards education, who would have thought, lol.

I'll keep watching your mods. I just started with camaros in 2012. I had corvettes for 20 years prior. I am having blast with this camaro.

Enjoy yours.
