It's a custom color with a custom tint coat over it. No name or paint code.

Alright, I think it's time I finally update this thread with all the stuff that's been done to the care lately. As you can see in the previous pictures, there have been some changes. Below photographically chronicles the install. All photos were taken by me, some rights reserved via attribution-ShareAlike from Creative Commons licensing.

All the work was done by Brian at WyoSpeed, a shop local here in Laramie, WY. I highly recommend it, easily one of the best shops around, and is extremely favored by the Camaro Club of The Rockies.

For starters, new brakes. I swapped in some CTS-V/ZL1 brakes, which I got for dirt cheap on amazon, then had them painted to match my rear brakes. The rotors come from brakeperformance.com. The fronts are from their CTS-V kit and the rears are from their SS kit.




This also included new Goodridge stainless brake lines from JDP.



Also bought some 275/295 Michelin Pilot Super Sport Tires.




And now onto the fun stuff. Vortech V3-Si tuner kit modified and painted by RMCR.






And thus began the car's biggest transformation yet.

New valve covers from ProForm and BBK Billet High Flow Fuel Rails








Elite Engineering - 2nd Gen Catch Can



JDP Clutch Reservoir Relocation Kit And Hurst Roll Control Line Lock . Also had to move the battery terminal to fit the supercharger cone filter.



CBM Motorsports coilpack mounts and custom made plug wires courtesy of WyoSpeed.

In order to fit the plumbing for the huge intercooler, the lower grille of the ZL1 Fascia had to be trimmed.




After this, the vortech portion of the instalation was completed.




Now that the supercharger was in, it was time to get the car up on the lift.



The fuel tank was dropped and a new ZL1 fuel pump was swapped in.



Following this, it was time for new exhaust. I relly liked my old Corsa sport catback, so I decided to stick with what I knew worked. We upgraded to the Corsa ZL1 3" catback to increase flow/power. To allow the dual tips to fit, I installed a 1LE rear diffuser. The sound is even better than my previous corsa catback! In order to keep the catback 3" front to back, we removed the old kooks high flow cats, and WyoSpeed fabricated some excellent 3" connection pipes with a bung on the passenger side for the wideband sensor.









To get all that power down without breaking stuff, a Driveshaft Shop 3.5'' Aluminum 1-Piece Driveshaft was installed along with Driveshaft Shop 1400 hp Axles. Both of these were sourced from Matt @ FSP who gave me a fantastic deal on them. For peace of mind, I also went with a Metco Driveshaft Safety Loop With Extension Bracket to fit over the new driveshaft.





And last but not least, dual Aeroforce Interceptor digital guages. Also went with a Switch Link kit which allows me to use my cruise control cancel button as my line lock button simply by flipping a switch.




Other mods that weren't pictured or mentioned include a Mantic 9000 Clutch, ZR1 3-Bar Map Sensor, Bosch wideband sensor kit, Autometer A-pillar Dual Gauge Pod, Ideal Garage Master Cylinder, ZL1 Fuel Pump, Tick Performance Stainless Clutch Line, Tick Performance Clutch Speed Bleeder, ADM FPMC.

I completely forgot to post the exhaust video. No more cutouts, but I think it's louder than before at WOT.

Finally got Gen5 DIY MyLink installed yesterday. Fairly straight forward install, easier than expected. Could be done in an afternoon. The instructions need some improvement though as they lack info for different camaros with different options.
