DJ's 2010 Camaro SS

Been on the forums for a while and I have finally decided to make a build thread, it will be a slow one since I'm about to head out to college but it's still a build thread right? It all started when I bought my first Camaro last summer. It was an IBM 2011 SS Auto and it was fun for a while but I knew in my heart I really wanted a manual so I went out and bought one back in March and a lot has changed since. She is a black 2010 LS3 and a hell of a lot more fun to drive! Here's a few pics of the day she came home with me!

So far to date this is what I have done

- Plasti-Dipped rims
- Oracle Concept Sidemarkers
- BMR 1.4" drop springs all around
- CAI Intake
- Dynatech 1 7/8" LT Headers w/cat-delete
- ZL1 Grille
- ZL1 Suede shift boot & knob
- Removed all badges
- Hurst Short throw shifter
- Magnaflow Competition Axle-back w/x-pipe

Here's what she looks like now:

Cam Install

So did my TSP 231/236 cam install and it's an awesome cam to say the least! I am in love with the lope

Ordered the TSP cam kit with
- PRC .650" Spring Kit
- TSP 231/236 Cam 112 LSA
- 3 Bolt Cam Gear w/ARP bolts

Also ordered a C5R Timing Chain and a Melling HV Oil Pump. All together I spent about $1500 and did my own work so I didn't have to pay a shop.

Here are pics during the install:

Then after I finished and started, I found out I had misfires on cylinders #1 and #6 Here's a link to the misfire:

So I had to go back into tearing apart the engine and found this...

...So I had to wait another week to receive my new valves and put everything back together and today I finally finished my cam install! Turned the car on aaaannnnddd

I am very happy with this cam and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a good cam. I can definitely feel the power difference and who doesn't love a good lope?
