My complete build thread starts here.




I have never had my very own super duper kung foo killer muscle car to do with as I see fit, for financial or other reasons...family and spouse were always totally against it. Until now......





Week of July 4th 2012--Made the decision to get a car I knew I could have fun with and afford. Had to have been a Chevy, my first car was a Camaro, after that I was a chevy man for life.....Went to the dealership and told them I wanted a M6 LS3, those were my only requirements.

Car was bought with 48 miles on it...which was really cool because I am a Jimmy Johnson fan!

So one day I was doing some research on the internet, and one of my searches led me to C5, I had also remembered my car salesperson tell me that you guys were all a bunch of nuts and had all kinds of cool things you could do to the cars....Now I am a C5 junkie and am constantly reading, gathering information, and formulating evil master plans!


I was real big into SC for my future build. So I started investing in parts that I could consider supporting mods. And also in some parts that I just wanted anyway for fun.


R1-Premiere Cross drilled and slotted rotors
Hawk HPS Pads
Bought Kooks Stepped LT's
Cat-less mid-pipes
Borla S-Type Axle back mufflers
VMAX Ported Throttle Body
Cold Air Inductions. Inc CAI
ADM race scoop and washer bottle relocation kit
25% SLP Under drive pulley
Innovate MTXL-1 AFR guage
Vitesse Throttle controller

Had Matt from FSP remote tune the car on the street first then a Mustang dyno. 420WHP/401WTQ

Here is a sound clip of the car with the Kooks Stepped headers, no cats and Borla Axleback Exhaust, I will really miss this once I re install my factory manifolds.




So The time had come for me to pick a FI system, it was either SC or Turbo's. To make a long story short A lot of people have Superchargers on their Camaros, but not so many have turbos. That and after doing a ton of research, the AGP kit met my HP goals within the price I was wanting to work with.

So here it is! the RWHP goal is 750ish..

Pics and videos will start coming soon!



December 10th 2014 Took the Car to Matt @ FSP for the following work.

AGP Twin turbo kit
54/57 Turbos
AGP CAI kit
Intercooler
ID850's
Livernois Dual fuel pump system
Alky Control dual nozzle meth system
FSP custom grind cam
AEM Tru Boost Controller
Autometer A Pillar pod
MSD shift light
3" inch Magnaflow Catback Exhaust with X pipe
Mantic Twin 9000 Clutch
DSS 1400hp axles
DSS 1 piece Aluminum Drive Shaft
Lakewood Sub-frame connectors
BMR Trailing Arms,
Rear, Polyurethane Bushings
BMR Toe Rods,
Rear, Polyurethane Bushings



Here is a before and after photograph of the car, along with the dyno sheets. Don't mind the dent in the drivers side quarter panel, it was fixed months ago.

So yesterday when they were putting the cam, one of the lifters dropped so they just pulled the engine. The transmission was already off of the car and the motor was just sitting there on a few motor mounts.


So cam is in, valve springs are done motor is finished and Livernois dual Fuel pumps will be done by the end of the day. Not sure when they will put the engine back or what else they will finish or get started onto today, but its only 2pm and as we all can see there moving fast. Here are the pictures of today, more updates later!

So here we are at the end of the week, motor and accessories are back in the car, along with transmission. The Alky Control will be installed by Monday, the AGP kit was shipped earlier this week so it will be here shortly....

FSP really moved fast on this build. I dropped the car off to them on the 10th of December, They didn't start on it until the 4th of Jan. They had other projects in the shop they were working on and plus the shop shut down from the 24th of December to the 4th of Jan. So considering they ended up pulling the motor and transmission, and as you can see by the pics they went through everything, they hauled ass! I couldn't be happier with my choice. In less than a week they did all the work described above.

Well today was Alky control. As you can see by the picts they rocked it out.

So were waiting on the turbo kit from AGP, it will arrive Wednesday, which is a real bummer for FSP. I had bought a plane ticket and hotel reservations in December for the 15th of Jan. That was based on me and Matts discussion. We both felt it was plenty of time. Not much he can do when parts are not in his hands. Yet Matt is assuring me that hell have the car ready by the end of the week. I hate to put them under the gun, the cost of the tickets is nothing compared to the cost of the build. So we will just see how it goes. I want the guys to have fun and enjoy the build, not want to kick it out of the shop.

Ok well the car will not be picked up this week, I discussed with Matt, the possibility of me picking up the car on Friday and keeping my travel plans in order, as we originally decided on, and he and I both think that we are just asking for trouble. We are both on the same page, I know, and he knows, they could have the kit installed and finished for me Friday night, however this leaves no room for error or anything else that will most likely come up according to murphys law. I have had over ten years in this business and I know what happens when you try to rush things out the door, add onto that what happens when the employees start to hate the project. Its just not worth it. I can always buy another plane ticket. Better to do that than regret it later.

As I stated before I want the shop to have fun with my build, and keep a great attitude towards the job. Not for them to stress out and want to kick the car to the curb when its done. Then only to find out after it goes that its got a few bugs in it and needs to come back. After all as Matt said, "its not like I live an hour away", I no longer live in his backyard I now am a snow bird living in Ohio, and when I pick up the car, that's where I'll be driving too. I want to send a big THANK YOU! to all the guys at FSP! and also to Matt personally for being a stand up guy and a consummate professional!
