let the modding begin...

long story short mother in law wanted a camaro ... we looked, we found, she bought. has always been in the racing scene with the family and late husband.

now its time to play.

2013 SS ...the car is fully loaded with the exception of the stripes she wanted.

so lets begin:

the car:



first mod: ( personally i liked w/o stripes )


SLP axle back being delivered tomorrow ( loud mouth 1 )

what the future will bring --> LED lighting, mail slop scanner, spacers with drop, CAI, Headers, eventually replace the bumper since all we could find had the damn front plate holder ... im sure the list will grow as i read on this forum ..

little GoPro shot:

man i left this thread hanging didn't i?


well here goes with the updates.

RPM installed the 2300 TVS and after some issues she is now running like a champ.

added a fuel/air boost gauge to the driver side.

did the ZL1 front swap

couple weeks later saw a used pair of fully adjustable's peddlers suspension so that was slapped on the following day.

then the fishing season hit so i parked the car and it hasn't moved since.

now i got the spring fever so it continues

Yesterday i ordered the ZL1 reps and going with the Nitto Invo and Nt555r for the rear. probably will have that next week some time. and Plasma bulbs for the DRLs


Dyno video at the bottom

Before the madness


Then



























don't know how to embed the video so here is a link of it on the dyne
