'13 IOM 1LE

So, I finally decided to start a build thread after nearly 8 months after driving my car off the lot........

I ordered my car in March of 2013 and after waiting a few months it showed up May 22, 2013. I haven't done much with the car at this moment but I will eventually. The car is a daily driver so the warranty actually means something to me... (I know, how boring). Performance wise the car has basically nothing done to it and visually the car only has a few vinyl things done to it.

I plan on keeping my car looking very close to stock to have a sleeper once I actually start doing performance mods.

MODS:

Performance:
Halltech CAI
Forza 3-Way Exhaust Controller
Bo White's PTB
Solo High flow cats and a lot of o2 extenders
Holley Blackheart Shortie Headers
Dual Aeroforce Interceptor Gauges
Pfadt Trailing Arms and Toe Links

Visual:
Xpel light black out (side markers, turn signals, tail lights, reverse lights)
Phastek Flat Black bowtie black out
SLP fade gills, flat black
ZL1 style rock guards front and rear
SLP rear black out, Flat black
Hash marks, matte black
Taillight Bezels (flat black)
Black CAMARO letters
Emblem Pros 1LE letters
Future Visual Mods (could care less about these):
Window tint.....
ACC afterburner taillights
ACC ghosted side markers (black)
Anvil spoiler (wrapped matte black)


Future Performance Mods:

Phase 1
Billy Boat ZL1 exhaust
Night Fury cam w/ supporting mods
Ported Heads
ZL1 front brakes


Phase 2: 800-1100+whp
AGP TT kit (precision 6266 turbo)
Forged internals
Dual fuel pumps
Mantic 9000 clutch
DSS 9" IRS conversion
Alky control meth

wider and stickier rear tire

Phase 3?????
Built 416/417/418????



Here is the car day #1 right when I got it home.

I wanted my car to stand out a little more and I wasn't a fan of the huge yellow bowtie on an orange a black car so I went to phastek.com and bought a bowtie black out kit and a smoked "light protection" kit and some side gills.

The car looked much better to me. I had the black out kit on all my lights but I thought the head lights were way too dim so I ended up taking off them off the head lights and fog lamps.

After countless hours of browsing Camaro5, I found a local Camaro Club and once my schedule permitted, I went to one of their meets. Happened to be a cruise Bradenton to hit the drag strip. The track temp was 102 and the air temp was in the 90s with typical FL humidity. Also, the being my 2nd car and first manual, I didn't do so good.

On a side note, Bad Dad (C5 member) showed up with his 9 second Camaro and I got to watch that monster get dialed in.

Decided to make my car a little more unique and added a 1LE emblem to the rear along with some hash marks, and a rear black out. Also wanted a little more power so I purchased a Halltech CAI.

Got to make it to another club meet at Hot Rod Nationals. While I was there somebody ripped my hash marks attempting to pull them off? Its beyond me who touches a car at a car show......

Anyway, I bought the "1LE style hash marks" from forum member SSTG

Thanks!

I'm sure your loving your 1LE though. If that was your IOM in your signature it looks awesome.

Trying to talk a friend into buy the NS-1 kit. Got him to look at it the other day and likes it a lot.

Haven't driven the 1LE enough (274 miles) yet.

The SS in my Sig was indeed mine. Thanks for the compliment.

Thanks again for supporting us, there is no better compliment!

Matt @ FSP had his 2nd annual dyno day. I wanted to buy a vmax ported TB but apparently Vmax's porting machine broke and FSP along with Apex and other places are sold out so no TB for me. But I got a chance to finally see what my car is making

Pull #1: 416whp/398wtq
Pull #2: 414whp/394wtq

Received a present for my car. Our anniversary was 2 days ago so I bought a gift and put it on before work. Something I've been wanting to have for a long time. Completely cured the throttle lag.

Right: ported
Left: stock

A little catching up for my uneventful thread. I did some minor things to my car over the last thread update. Nothing huge but it was something.

I added black Camaro emblems and 1LE emblems, Solo High Flow Cats, MGW shifter, Aeroforce interceptor gauges and Holley Blackheart shortie headers.

High flow cat thread: http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=382179


Videos:



The MGW is great, I'll have to upload some pictures of that

Gauges with aeroforce pod



Installed shortie headers. I wish they were coated or something, the heat off of these are ridiculous but offered a 30lb weight reduction vs the stock manifolds.

Thread: http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=430977



Videos (Headers and Cats):



Now changing spark plugs are really fun with these!

I'm still on the factory tune. I've had my fuel trim and AFR logged and they are still safe and not lean. I haven't dyno'd my car since I put the headers on. That's still to come.
