Blkcamaro81 2013 SS Whipple build

Hello all! Thought I'd start a build thread on my Camaro. I've been working on it since I bought it back in January of 2016.
Here is the first day I bought it.

I started out with JDP Motorsports anti-wheel hop kit. Real improvement over the stock suspension. Completely eliminated the massive amounts of wheel hop I was experiencing.

Then was a heritage grill.

Then came what I thought would be my only winter mods. MGW short throw and kooks 1 7/8 headers with a remote tune from dynosteve. I also threw on z28 replicas and nitto 555 g2s

I then, through strategic negotiations with my wife bought a whipple supercharger. I started the install last night. I'm leaving on vacation Friday, so it will be a bit for an update.

Whipples instructions have been decent so far, but there have been some omissions/discrepancies. First is how the heat exchanger mounts to the mounts. The instructions just say to use supplied bolts/washers/nuts, however, you need to put grommets and 'spuds' on like the pics below.

Next issue was the heat exchanger pump. The pump wasn't clocked ideally. I turned it so the outlet was angled up towards the heat exchanger. I also had to cut roughly 3 1/4" from the hose 'A' that runs from the outlet to the heat exchanger. I then notched a plastic shield so the hose could run through there.

That's it for the moment. More to follow!
