Rotors paid for and should be here next week.

I'm also sending out the calipers this week.

Still need to get the RB stuff and the rest of the parts.

I couldn't go with out some power upgrades. I am picking up Vmax TB next week and don't mock me for this but I'm going to try the Vararam Power Wedge... lol

My plan is to do headers plus the current mods. ADM Race intake, Ported TB, Wedge thingie, then I'll get it tuned by either Tampa Tuning or Jeremy Formato. I'll run it like that until late next year when the heads/cam/possibly intake/new tune happen .

I'll do suspension mods between the upcoming tune and the Cam and stuff.

So mods are coming soon...
If I were you I'd go to Jeremy. No offense to Tampa Tuning.

I know Jeremy is legendary around here, and farther than that too. I saw his CTS at Stingray a little while ago and that thing was so serious when it started up my nads ached...


I want to talk to the guys at Stingray and get their opinion on who to go with. I can't disregard FSP either...

Well I'm kinda bummed. I had thought I was going to get the last of my parts I need on Monday. Well the last of them come in Wednesday. So instead of getting all the brakes installed this weekend and Mon/Tues, it's going to have to wait until the following weekend. I should still have it done by the end of the month.

Kind of irritated right now...

So just looking around the net and finally found the price of the ZL1 set up from Chevy... http://www.crateenginedepot.com/Cama...0815C1009.aspx and http://www.crateenginedepot.com/SS-V...0817C1009.aspx let me just say...

I did the same thing with MY choice of color and decal plus HPS pads, SS lines, and RB racing high temp boots and seals for roughly $2300...

Retail on the ZL1 kit is like $6600 and discounted is still $5600 or so.

Also the JDP kit which would have been similar to what I did but no used parts would have been $3500...
