Taco's 14 417 Stroker

I picked up my new 2014 on June 3rd 2014 and it was the right color, black. Here is a pic the day I picked it up at the dealership, as well as a current pic of the car.

a few weeks after having the car I found some good threads on C5 with instructions on how to paint your calipers. So I gave that a try. I ordered new Brembo decals and replaced them when I was finished.

Here's a good thread for instructions.

In July 2014 came performance mods. I added a CAI, Kooks LTs, Flowmaster Outlaws, and a tune. Shortly after I added an Apex Catch can.

After painting my calipers I had some paint left over, so I decided I'd start spray painting stuff under the hood. It's not professional quality, but the price was def right! LOL

In Aug 2014 I got a set of ZL1 replica wheels from Factory Reproductions and got the windows tinted. Car is starting to come together!

In Sept 2014 I had my Night Fury cam installed, I painted my exhaust tips black, and painted my rear diffuser black. I also installed my Bo White Ported TB.

Instructions for the diffuser.

2010-2013 Diffuser instructions

Link for Bo White ported TBs!

Late Sept/ early Oct 2014 it was time for suspension stuff. JDP Motorsports gave me a great deal on a box full of suspension crap.

November I picked up a ZL1 hood and sold my SS hood to a local H-Town Camaro guy. Lovin it! Sorry, the pic stinks.

In November I preordered a set of MRR Z/28 replica wheels and continued to eat Ramen noodles because the car is getting all my paychecks.

I also installed an Apex washer tank relocation kit and air scoop. Here's the instructions.

Mar 17th my MRR wheels came in! Super stoked about that. But my car is in the shop so I don't have anything to mount them on... yet.

March 10th I dropped my car off a J-Rod's Speed Shop to have my motor pulled. I sold it locally in Houston and have a 417 Stroker coming from FSP! Can't wait to have that bad boy installed and put it on the dyno. And... More Ramen noodles.

This is where I am as of today. I know I'm not finished modding the car, but I don't have any clue what the future will hold for my SS.

Def, To Be Continued!
