So, I already have the RotoFab intake with the carbon fiber hydrodip finish, and lots of other pieces painted etc - but every time I looked into my engine bay my eyes were drawn to the big black plastic Water Diverter/Baffle behind the radiator.

I wanted to do something with it to be a bit different - so I had a local hydrodip guy match the finish on the intake tubing - he just sent me a picture of it fresh out of the dip tank - he wants to dip it again as he's not totally happy with the finish, but I'm quite pleased - better than black plastic anyway!

Of course it's not clear coated or anything here yet either which will make it look better too..

Pfadt Tri-Y Stainless Steel Headers
Rotofab CAI
Metco Motorsports 2.50" Supercharger Pulley
Heavy Duty Solid Isolator Coupling
Gates 65.3" Supercharger Belt - Green Stripe HD
SLP 160 Degree Thermostat
FSP ATI ZL1 Super Damper Kit
- Includes Serpentine 8_Rib Belt
- Includes 10% OD Balancer Pulley
ID850 Injectors
Custom Dyno Tune

Can't wait!
And now I've added Meth Injection to the list of work that is going to be carried out - mainly to help with the IATs

So, took it down to the local track on Friday to get a baseline run before I do the Mods...only my 2nd ever time at the track so horrible times really, but it's my baseline to see what the mods do - Car 36 right lane - time of 12.710 @ 112.70mph:



Then on Sunday I dropped it off with Matt@FSP for its goodies!



The coated Pfadt Tri-Y headers arrived in today too...





Can't wait to pick it up but will post more Pics of the Install as I get them once it's started on

This build is totally mental and has also inspired me, even though I don't have a Camaro (2009 HSV WM Grange in Heron White). Watching like a hawk from the other side of the planet. Keep us thrilled Modern07.

So, I thought it was time I updated this thread as it's been a while and I've added a few things since my last update - I've just been too busy out driving the thing and having fun since I got it back from FSP!

Anyway, whilst it was over at FSP I decided to add a couple of items to help keep IAT's to a manageable level with all the Power Adders.

The first item added was a Ron Davis HEX - awesome piece of kit..

Then to supplement that I also added the D3PE Reservoir - again an awesome piece of kit with great craftmanship - you can see both items in this Picture:



I also decided to have a friend of mine who has just started a Hydrodipping business Dip my Water Tray in a carbon fiber finish - I just didn't like the big piece of black plastic sat there, and I'm very happy with the new look:



And whilst he was doing that I had him Dip the Billet Custom Interior Kit I had (it was originally White but I changed my mind on installing it with so much contrast to the dark interior, so hadn't installed it) - again very happy with how it turned out:






And here's some more pictures of the recent install I had Matt @ FSP carry out for me - it's an absolute beast of a car now!

Alky Control



Alky Control Warning Lights in Gauge Pod - Low Level Warning and Charging/Spraying Light




Methanol Housed in Washer Fluid Reservoir



LS3 Ported 90mm TB



Mike Norris Billet Catch Can:



LPE 2.55" Pulley



D3PE Reservoir








And the All Important Dyno Results!

641 RWHP and 651 RWTQ, 8.5psi at 1500rpms, 10psi at 1900rpms, 15psi at 2800rpms!

Well sir, I'm not sure whether me and you are going to be going for the same week. Any which way I do say that you probably stand one of the best chances of winning lol. Best of luck!

Haha thanks! But I've seen all the work you've been doing to yours too so it will be some mighty fine competition!

Can't wait to see it in person at the next MFCC meet if you make it out

After seeing the price of powder coating I think I may try some DIY like I have with majority of my car lol, you still plan to do the bentley blue? And after this plastidip thing it looks like everything will be DIY on my car.

Yeah hopefully you get that worked out with your car

And I've narrowed it down to either Bentley Blue or Candy Blue..

Bentley:



Candy:

Opinions are always welcome here

And yeah I'm swaying more towards the Candy Blue as every day passes to be honest - I'd just like to see it in person so hopefully I can get a sample before committing
