*_Eric_*'s OMINOUS Build

After reading through some build threads I thought I'd start my own. I took ownership of my car April 6th, 2010. I purchased it in Duluth, GA at Rick Hendrick's Chevrolet. Last year I had paid it off and decided to start modding.

So far it's almost stock. I installed my MGW shifter and Borla Atak axle back last summer while I was home on R&R.

I bought a bunch more goodies while I've been in Afghanistan.

2" ARH catted LT's & catback (Installed)
102mm FAST Intake
NoWeed's diverters (Installed)
Vortech YSI tuner kit
72lb injectors
Aeroforce Eliminator Fuel Pump (Purchased this, injectors and YSI from RDP)
Aeroforce LS3 fuel rails
Aeroforce pump speed controller
Pfadt engine mounts (installed)
Pfadt Subframe bushings (thanks paramo!) (installed)
Pfadt adj. rear toe rods (installed)
Pfadt trailing arms (installed)
Pfadt Control Arm bushings (arms, rods and bushings from FSP!) (just need to install the left side front lower control arm bushing)
Pedders FE4 ZL1 Sway Bar package (Installed)
AirLift Digital kit (Found this on Amazon for CHEAP!) (Almost installed)
VIS Carbon Fiber trunk lid (Installed)
Carbon by Design Spoiler (Installed)
JDP Clutch reservoir relocation kit
Mantic 9000 series twin disc clutch w/slave cylinder and remote bleeder (ECS has a great sale going on right now!)
Heater hose relocation kit
SLP Line Lock kit
Snow Stage 3 Meth Kit
Meziere Electric water pump
MTI Transmission poly mount
Custom Shift Knob from George @ CFD
ZL1 Black Replica wheels (Thanks mperryss!)
Diablosport Trinity (Installed)
Goodridge Stainless steel brake lines
VIS AMS Carbon Fiber hood (Installed)


I'll be home July 1st, so by then I'll get some pictures and more progress on my build.

Future mods:

Still deciding which cam to get TSP or ECS.
Ideal G's master cylinder
Custom Air tank
Custom Shaker Ram Air induction
Seibon CF Fenders
12" Hammerhead or GForce complete Rear end kit
416/418 Stroker w/Trickflow GenX 255 or PRC 260cc LS3 heads
Forgeline wheels (maybe)
Painting hood and trunk black with Carbon Fiber stripes and IOM pinstripes
Katech Carbon Fiber Valve covers
Painting FAST intake gloss black with IOM lettering
Cleaning up my engine bay

In the meantime I'll be trolling the classifieds. Been finding good deals there!

If anyone has any questions or suggestions feel free to ask. Also I'd like to take the time to give a shout out to those of you who inspired me to do this!

Ok guys, I've finally gotten things organized in my house a little. Thought I'd share some pictures of everything I have so far. Still waiting on my SUPERCHARGER STEVE! I'll be calling you first thing in the morning to figure out what the heck is going on. Other than that I'm super excited about this winter project! I can't wait till it's done and on the road next spring! I'll try and keep this updated when I actually start the project.

HAHAHA YEA! When I laid them out all I could think about was that scene in the Fast & Furious where they showcased all the parts they were putting into the Supra.

Thanks! I'll be getting to it sometime soon. School and home renovations have been taking up most of my time.

Thanks! I've been meaning to get in contact with you guys for a blower cam for this car. Only thing is I don't want to do any fly cutting. Any suggestions?

I finally tore into the car this past week dropping the rear cradle (by myself) and installed the new arms, bushings, sway bar and air bags.

I did some more work today and will try to include a write up of how to install everything from now on as I go along.

So today I got quite a bit done. First I started by mounting my tank, manifolds and controller to a piece of MDF (it's temporary until I construct a custom tank). Sorry I have no picture of that, I'll get it tomorrow. Then I got to mounting my air compressor. I asked earlier today if anyone had any suggestions but I didn't get any responses so I jumped right into it. I took a couple pictures of my now hidden compressor. I may opt to putting it on the outside of the vehicle if it gets too warm, because it does touch the carpeting. If that happens I'll mount it just to the outside of the right muffler on the bottom side of the trunk behind the wheel. There looks to be plenty of space there. ANYWAYS... here's a couple of pictures of the custom job I did.
