I know some people will just tie them back to something since the rear sensors get tuned out anyway. But I don't know if I'd want to do that or not.

I stripped down my plenum cover and painting it to match my valve covers. I didn't really like the paint I had before. Plus it was pretty scratched up from being at the dealer.
Also Re-polishing my IM. First time I did it I did not go very rough so it left some texture. The right side is just after the 1st of 4 Polish steps.

Damn, u spun like no tomorrow the first run. Your car actually has a lot more in it because of the 2.2 60'. Getting some traction will bring that time down even more

Hi Folks! I'm currently looking to purchase a new 2013 or 2014 Camaro. I bought a new 2002 red 35th anniversary Camaro back on September 12 2001. Sad day, great car. My question is this - I just test drove a 2LS camaro coupe - loved the car, hated the seat. Is it me, or is the lumbar section a little too intense?

Welcome winstonscifi!
I actually find the seats really comfortable in my Camaro. I took a trip to Colorado (800 miles) and had absolutely no discomfort at all which is unusual for me. I highly recommend the new Camaro, it is very fun to drive and gets attention wherever it goes.

Every car seat feels different when you first sit in it. I personally love it and it's made longer trips more comfortable than just about any car I've ever owned. My wife keeps the adjustable lumbar support in her Jag set to rock hard due to lower back problems, but I can't stand that setting, so always soften it when I get in. Each persons need is different, but the seat in my Camaro is perfect for me.

Very nice. Be sure to post up some pictures of the final product. I plan on buying my paints for my manifold paint job next week. I plan on doing a metallic silver with a gloss black plenum and throttle body

A friend of mine has them, but on his supercharged V8, so far he likes them. He actually just showed me them at the track tonight.

That's good to hear, I may be getting a set for a killer deal and wanted to see if anyone had heard or had any impressions of them

Haha nope I want to change my rear diff, tranny fluid, Add the gto clutch resovoir mod and the short throw shifter before I track it again, if I plan to drag race it again. Did it once and I enjoyed but I think I'd much rather enjoy auto crossing

Oh yea, I'd definitely do that since you're a manual. I'd love to try road racing sometime. Even though I don't think I have the suspension, tires, and brakes necessary lol

Alright guys I'm going to go with the Axis wheels but! Matte silver or Matte graphite? I'm trying to find good pictures of both. Matte silver will be a safe choice I think but depending on how light the graphite wheels are, it would be awesome if it matched the car, or gave it a darker accent without being black.

Get the graphite, matte silver looks boring imo and you're spending money on these rims for a reason!

That's what I'm leaning to right now too. They are pretty similar to the Nurburgring wheels, I'll take a look at those for reference.

I found this picture from this thread. All I have to say is F*** yeah!

EDIT: I'm getting 18's so I'll have more sidewall which I think looks good. Reminds me of the older muscle cars.
