ABM Build thread rjsmith1973

Ultimate goal for this build is to balance performance and creature comforts. IE no plans for slicks/skinnies and no gutting of the interior for weight savings. Stay tuned for more details and additions. Any and all engine mods past/present/future have been or will be done at ADM Performance (thx Andy!)

Pictures as received in Sept. 2009




First mod (2010): ADM package 1 7/8 ARH, Magnaflow Comp Cat-back, Tune 91 octane(before/after)


First cosmetic mod(2011): Showstopper sidemarkers


Second "performance/cosmetic mod"(2011)--Cor Forged V8 Mesh Wheels 20x9 front 20x11 rear (thx Nineball), Pedders XA coilovers, pfadt trailing arms, full bushing swap out


Third cosmetic mod:ZL1 side rockers/RPI splitter/stock rear diffuser in carbon flash metallic


Third performance mod(2012): LS3 conversion List of things below:
Ligenfelter GT-11 cam
Stg 2 ported LS3 heads
ZL1 Fuel pump
3.45:1 GM gears
other small stuff to prepare for next performance mods


Fourth performance/cosmetic mod (2013)
2.9 Whipple in blue
Matching valve covers and wires
Pfadt toe rods
ADM upper control mount bushings
ADM boost/air-fuel gauges





Fifth Cosmetic mod (2013) ACS T3 front end (the RPI splitter gave it's life to save the front end from a large deer carcass in the road)



Interior mods to date:



Long time since I posted but had to share the new seats!

Thanks for all the kind words! Added pictures of the interior changes so far (not very many) and a photo of the ADM boost gauges.

rad_dsm: There is a Northwest Arkansas Camaro Club based in our area, you should come to one of our meetings and see what you think.

With what you have done to the car what is the end result rwhp for your car? I am currently in the final stages of a 416 build with the SLP SC. My signature has some of the other added parts but was just wondering.

Nice to see another ABM just becoming a monster on the road. Very Nice! I am thinking mine will be in the 700-750 rwhp when done.
