Standard PPG Paint that used on the exterior. Prepped like any other exterior service and then etched with plastic prep and plastic primer. The supercharger cover was done last year with the same process, and no issues.

Thanks guys, since the blower is a rear entry we decided to take it to the next level and machine a billet airbridge with dual outlets on each side to allow for dual throttle bodies and dual cold air intakes. You cant run dual throttle bodies on the stock ECU and yes we are using the stock ECU with a custom 2.5bar speed density operating system from HPTuners.

Fuse box was moved into the interior, its now inside the glovebox. Pipes will be ceramic coated inside out and then powdercoated gloss black to match the blowers finish.

Thanks Jay. The guy is really good. He did all the underhood on my SS and is local to me, but will do mail order stuff. Pretty much have to get in during the winter, though. Stays pretty booked up.

Does anyone know if there is a difference in the strut tower tops between the SS and ZL1? Looking to by a plain set of billet caps off ebay or somewhere that I can get airbrushed.
Thanks

Here is mine. I just got the strut covers today that was the easiest install to date.
The only thing left is to get rid of the ugly intake hose. I would like carbon or hard hose to paint.

Yes I know we have enough ZL 1 Markings But they were the same price.

Just want to make sure all caps fit on any Camaro. No diff for SS, ZL1, etc.? Didn't know ADM had CAI. Been holding out for CAI, Inc.
Looks awesome, BTW

Joe - I was so impressed, I went and placed my order for an RX catch in VR. Come on warm weather so I can get my mods going.
