Just found out I made Camaro Of The Week. I had no idea! Thanks so much. I'm humbled and very appreciative of that -- with so many out there, its hard for me to believe...

I'm doing so many mods that I needed to have one place to keep them. Instead of posting several places (like I've been doing), I'm going to start consolidating and just reference links.

So, the first set of links are just going to reference what I've done up to now.

After that, I'm going to:

Post my ZL1 brake upgrade (front and rear!) with the Stainless brake lines, my 'pressure' bleeding DIY tool I've built, and the L99 VVT cam and heads upgrade I've have planned (working with GPI on that one).

So, here is what I've done so far...

My first set of mods (including Vararam Intake, JBA spark-plug wires, 1LE strut bar, GPI tune, stainless headers w HFC, muffler delete, Texas Speed underdrive pulley, VMax throttle body, and 3.91 gears):

The 'View My Garage' has more pics as does clicking on the 'Avatar' of my car...


Now, my DIY for the stainless Catch Can:
