My 2010 Camaro 2SS/RS

I've been lurking around here for a year and a half, made some small upgrades and researched information. Well, I'm about to take my first major upgrade/modification step on my car since I've acquired it.

Let's start with the small stuff first. I wanted a blue Camaro SS with the RS package, automatic, leather interior and white stripes. Luckily for me, I found this little beauty at a dealer just 10 minutes from my sister's house.

Purchased 7/28/11:




Already installed was a K&N CAI:


My first small modification was the change the license plate lights to LED:



Then came the new stereo system:







Then I had some custom LED sequential turn signal tail lights:



Knight rider scanner:


Next step was the custom license plate:


So now for the big project that's been awaiting the green light!!!

Jerry from Ideal Garage (C5 member and master cylinder maker IDEALG) will be handling the tough work of converting my L99 into LS3 with some added extras, all being supplied through Jannetty Racing:

2010 CAMARO L99 LS3 VALVE TRAIN CONVERSION
2010 CAMARO LS3 CAM PACKAGE
2010 CAMARO 6L80E TORQUE CONVERTER 2800 STALL
2010-13 CAMARO & ZL1 LONG TUBE HEADERS
2010-11 CAMARO CATTED SECTION 2.5 INCH OUTLET
TIMING CHAIN GEN 3, (3/8 X 7/32 X 6)
LS3 MELLING OIL PUMP
99-UP GM X3 POWERFLASH HAND HELD TUNER

Mods on my list to come:
Heritage Grill
Painted Engine cover
Powdercoated Calipers
ZL1 rear
Quad tipped exhaust
Steel brake lines
Drilled/slotted rotors
Lloyd Floor mats

im still waiting on some tax forms. Once my taxes are done, then I'm going to start on the project.

It's not that I can't start now, but it's just finance management that's the hold up.

Since we are awaiting on a missing Valley cover and oil pan gasket that never came with the shipment, Jerry went ahead and changed the valve springs:
