Ben's Aqua Blue Metallic Build Thread

I have a 2010 2LT Aqua Blue Metallic Camaro.

Got it a bit over a year ago, haven't done much to it other than an Airraid cold air intake.

A few weeks ago I decided to take the plunge into some mods. Mostly cosmetic but not all.

Here's what I'm doing/what I've done for my mods:

- Airraid Cold Air Intake - Installed
- Ark N-II exhaust Installed
- ZL1 Front Fascia - Installed
- 8000k HID Eagle Eye Headlights - Installed
- Black Hood Spears - Not Installed Yet
- Black Side spears - Not Installed yet
- Blackout Lights - Installed
- Black Powder Coat Wheels - Need to Make Appointment
- 2 10" Kicker Subwoofers and Amp - Installed UPDATE replaced
- JL Audio 300/4v2 amp - Installed
- JL Audio 500/1v2 amp - Installed
- JL Audio C5-650 component speakers - Installed
- JL Audio 10w7 in ported box - Installed
- Alpine Dash Kit - Ordered
- Alpine INA-W910 Head Unit - Ordered
- Alpine WCE-C305R Backup Camera - Arrived


Will add more pictures as the build progresses

Here's what my ride looked like starting out:

So I got home to the Ark exhaust sitting in my hallway. This thing is massive and super heavy!

Getting the exhaust and subs installed tomorrow morning!

Subs Installed!

The fabric around the box doesn't match the interior, because it was built for my friend's BMW Z3, thats why its a little ripped as well. But the sound is fantastic!

The lettering and logo on the amp lights up blue, but the car wasn't on so its not visible.

Ark N-II exhaust installed!

All I have to say is WOW, what an improvement. It sounds amazing. I decided on this exhaust only through other peoples reviews as well as youtube videos. But this is a monster in person. I cant say enough about it. I feel like I'm driving a whole different car! I could not recommend this exhaust more.

First picture is of the weak stock exhaust and the rest are with the Ark exhaust installed.

Wow man! That exhaust with the stock set up looks like a match made in heaven! So what kind of sound were you looking for again and was that the full catback? I probably can't afford it anytime soon but it would be good to know which exhaust to put on my list!
