*_Eric_*'s OMINOUS Build

After reading through some build threads I thought I'd start my own. I took ownership of my car April 6th, 2010. I purchased it in Duluth, GA at Rick Hendrick's Chevrolet. Last year I had paid it off and decided to start modding.

So far it's almost stock. I installed my MGW shifter and Borla Atak axle back last summer while I was home on R&R.

I bought a bunch more goodies while I've been in Afghanistan.

2" ARH catted LT's & catback (Installed)
102mm FAST Intake
NoWeed's diverters (Installed)
Vortech YSI tuner kit
72lb injectors
Aeroforce Eliminator Fuel Pump (Purchased this, injectors and YSI from RDP)
Aeroforce LS3 fuel rails
Aeroforce pump speed controller
Pfadt engine mounts (installed)
Pfadt Subframe bushings (thanks paramo!) (installed)
Pfadt adj. rear toe rods (installed)
Pfadt trailing arms (installed)
Pfadt Control Arm bushings (arms, rods and bushings from FSP!) (just need to install the left side front lower control arm bushing)
Pedders FE4 ZL1 Sway Bar package (Installed)
AirLift Digital kit (Found this on Amazon for CHEAP!) (Almost installed)
VIS Carbon Fiber trunk lid (Installed)
Carbon by Design Spoiler (Installed)
JDP Clutch reservoir relocation kit
Mantic 9000 series twin disc clutch w/slave cylinder and remote bleeder (ECS has a great sale going on right now!)
Heater hose relocation kit
SLP Line Lock kit
Snow Stage 3 Meth Kit
Meziere Electric water pump
MTI Transmission poly mount
Custom Shift Knob from George @ CFD
ZL1 Black Replica wheels (Thanks mperryss!)
Diablosport Trinity (Installed)
Goodridge Stainless steel brake lines
VIS AMS Carbon Fiber hood (Installed)


I'll be home July 1st, so by then I'll get some pictures and more progress on my build.

Future mods:

Still deciding which cam to get TSP or ECS.
Ideal G's master cylinder
Custom Air tank
Custom Shaker Ram Air induction
Seibon CF Fenders
12" Hammerhead or GForce complete Rear end kit
416/418 Stroker w/Trickflow GenX 255 or PRC 260cc LS3 heads
Forgeline wheels (maybe)
Painting hood and trunk black with Carbon Fiber stripes and IOM pinstripes
Katech Carbon Fiber Valve covers
Painting FAST intake gloss black with IOM lettering
Cleaning up my engine bay

In the meantime I'll be trolling the classifieds. Been finding good deals there!

If anyone has any questions or suggestions feel free to ask. Also I'd like to take the time to give a shout out to those of you who inspired me to do this!

Ok guys, I've finally gotten things organized in my house a little. Thought I'd share some pictures of everything I have so far. Still waiting on my SUPERCHARGER STEVE! I'll be calling you first thing in the morning to figure out what the heck is going on. Other than that I'm super excited about this winter project! I can't wait till it's done and on the road next spring! I'll try and keep this updated when I actually start the project.

HAHAHA YEA! When I laid them out all I could think about was that scene in the Fast & Furious where they showcased all the parts they were putting into the Supra.

Thanks! I'll be getting to it sometime soon. School and home renovations have been taking up most of my time.

Thanks! I've been meaning to get in contact with you guys for a blower cam for this car. Only thing is I don't want to do any fly cutting. Any suggestions?

I finally tore into the car this past week dropping the rear cradle (by myself) and installed the new arms, bushings, sway bar and air bags.

I did some more work today and will try to include a write up of how to install everything from now on as I go along.

So today I got quite a bit done. First I started by mounting my tank, manifolds and controller to a piece of MDF (it's temporary until I construct a custom tank). Sorry I have no picture of that, I'll get it tomorrow. Then I got to mounting my air compressor. I asked earlier today if anyone had any suggestions but I didn't get any responses so I jumped right into it. I took a couple pictures of my now hidden compressor. I may opt to putting it on the outside of the vehicle if it gets too warm, because it does touch the carpeting. If that happens I'll mount it just to the outside of the right muffler on the bottom side of the trunk behind the wheel. There looks to be plenty of space there. ANYWAYS... here's a couple of pictures of the custom job I did.

Here's a little DIY for the front AirLift install:


First disconnect the brake line. Just a 10mm bolt

Next remove the tie rod from the shock housing. I think it was a 15mm nut.
Name:  IMG_0039.jpg

Size:  119.5 KB

Or you can disconnect it from the front sway bar.

Next remove the two bolts that hold your caliper onto the spindle. They are 18mm.

Here I used a little pry bar to help free the caliper from the rotor.

Front airbag install continued:

Ziptie the caliper to the frame or body to prevent stretching or breaking your brake line.

Get a jack to support the front spindle

Views: 117
Size:  76.1 KB

Remove the two bolts from the strut to the front spindle. They were 15/16". Before doing so, if you have a camber adjustment bolt make sure to mark it and remove it before removing these two bolts.

Don't forget to remove the sensor wire from the shock housing!

Front Airbag install:


Remove the cap to the upper strut revealing the nut
Name:  IMG_0053.jpg
Views: 118
Size:  107.6 KB

Remove the bolt. It's a 15/16 or whatever mm equivalent.
Name:  IMG_0056.jpg
Views: 115
Size:  111.3 KB

Remove the old strut and spring. It should come out easily. If not just give a tap or two with a deadblow hammer.
Name:  IMG_0058.jpg
Views: 110
Size:  91.0 KB

Install the supplied bushing to the airbag.
Name:  IMG_0059.jpg
Views: 110

Install your air fitting. I actually ended up putting on the supplied 1/2" braided airline instead of this fitting.
Name:  IMG_0061.jpg
Views: 109
Size:  81.4 KB

Next install the supplied spacer.
Name:  IMG_0063.jpg
Views: 108

Then install the airbag up into the housing and reuse the old rebound bushing.

Front Airbag install:

Install the nut to secure the airbag to the strut housing and torque them down.
Name:  IMG_0068.jpg
Views: 108
Size:  90.2 KB

Install the two bolts to the front spindle and torque them down. In this case I did not have a camber bolt. If you do have one, reinstall it to as close as it was prior to removal before tightening and torquing the two spindle bolts. This won't guarantee proper camber alignment but it should be close.
Name:  IMG_0069.jpg
Views: 112
Size:  68.9 KB

Cut the zip tie while supporting the caliper and reinstall it onto the rotor. Torque down the two 18mm bolts.
Name:  IMG_0075.jpg
Views: 113
Size:  62.8 KB

Reinstall the sensor wire to the lower strut bracket on the new airbag.
Name:  IMG_0070.jpg
Views: 114
Size:  105.3 KB

Install the supplied nut and bolt for the brake line.
Name:  IMG_0073.jpg
Views: 109
Size:  84.6 KB

And there you have it! Just repeat for the other side and install your air lines. At this time I went ahead and replaced my front sway bar with a 27mm Pedders sway bar which was four 1/2" nuts. When removing the front sway bar you have to remove your motor mount bolts to jack up the engine. There were two 18mm nuts on the motor mount and four 15mm bolts to the motor mount bracket on each side. I replaced these as well with Pfadt solid engine mounts. Once the engine is jacked up, I was able to remove the front sway bar through the passenger side. I could not get it through the driver's side as a video I referred to suggested.
