Alright, all the parts are ordered! I just got back to my college town for school (a 400+ mile drive). The car got an average of 23.5 miles to the gallon, but I was even more please to see that Premium gas here is only about $3.50 a gallon. I play a game called "Gran Turismo 5" which has a built in photo mode in which you can take pictures of the in-game cars, so naturally I took pics of my car. Pics are attached. God I love this game.

If you ever do, be sure to visit in your Camaro and hit the Beartooth Highway. Its probably the most amazing drive in America and is absolutely fantastic if you do it in a sportscar.

Took my engine cover off today in anticipation of the new parts to find about an inch of dust on everything. Nothing a wet rag couldn't take care of. I think it looks much better with no cover.

Yeah, a couple of guys talked/posted pics about it in a tread about engine covers. I need to find out what hose I need and where I can get it. Those things are ugly and probably dont help the heat issue too much. I must hide them at once!

Yeah, that hunk of plastic looked like sh!t. I didn't even like the painted ones. Besides, when you own a beast, you don't doll it up and make it look pretty. You show it off in its raw form, to scare off all the rustangs and brodozers


P.S. People, new parts are coming in on Tuesday. I hope to get all the stuff installed ASAP when it all gets here, so keep a lookout for a bunch of new pictures and maybe a video

First of my upgrades came in this morning. Thanks to Juiced1 for selling me this awesome CAI. Was extremely easy to install, and makes the car sound so much better. I'll report back on engine response improvements after I take her for a spin tonight after I get the other stuff installed.

Well, finally got the exhaust on. Its the Corsa cat-back system. Took about 1.5 hours to install. I absolutely love the sound.
