G5R Optima/SEMA Build Journal

Hey guys I figured I'd start a build journal for my car in addition to the DIY thread http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=188393 which has documented what I done in the engine bay area. I really should change the name of this thread to "Project Snow Ball"!!! As I started my modding because I didn't like how the 2011 heater hose ran up the intake.

The purpose for this build journal will be to address the other areas of the build. The goal I'm shooting for is ....... get the car invited to the Optima Challenge and SEMA show next November.

I spoke with the Optima guys at PRI last week and my best bet to get one of the 50 invitations, is to win it at one of the event they have through out the country. The next event in my area is in February. This means that in additional to getting the car running, I will need to address a complete new suspension, wheels, tires, brakes, drive train, etc. This is in addition to everything I need to do to complete the engine bay.

But as many know, I should be down in about 5 minutes, LOL. So wish me luck.

Nathan
