Heres a few starting with the first day (night) I brought her home. I traded in a 2011 Camaro LT for her so had some parts transfer over and did it the same night I brought her home. You can tell it didnt take long for me to start modding. Calipers and exhaust were done within a few days..

Everything looks amazing like always! It is weird seeing Powder when she was stock such a completely different car. Can't wait to see what else you have planned

Plastidipped my exhaust tips and spaced the rear "camaro" lettering further apart.

Put a superchips tune in yesterday. I love it!! The shifting is much more like a race car, hard when it needs to be but smooth when you hit the interstate. Disabled the AFM which that alone is worth it!!! Drove to a show today an hour away and even with the AFM disabled, I still managed to get 22/23 mpg at 75/80 mph. Very happy with it.
