TurboNarwhals 2010 2SS/RS 'Belle'

I have had my car for a couple of months now and figured that i should start a journal now before I got so far into this car that it wouldn't be worth the effort any more.

I never intended to buy a RY, i was wanting ABM or IOM, but i stumbled across mine which happens to be a very low mile (3600 at time of purchase) 2010 car. I couldnt resist from buying it, and I havent looked back since.


First picture of Belle, and last picture of Bianca (2004 GTO Cosmos Purple).



Rest of the pictures from Day 1:









First mod was plasti-diping the tailight bezels:



Easter happened and my car got 'egged':





Then came the heritage grill:





Pfadt/Apex 1.25 Lowering Springs





Tinted windows and new badges for grill:

So far this has been an amazing journey, and I am falling in love with this car. My GTO was very anonymous and i rarely got attention from it even though it sounded like a bat outta hell. This car makes you feel like a rock star, I guess it being bright ass yellow helps with that though. lol

Well finally got a decent day to work on the car, gave her a quick bath, after which I installed my front splitter. Then i decided to go ahead and put the vinyl pinstripes on my wheels, I have some nice wheels coming down the road, but that is still a few weeks off. Beyond happy with the results.











And finally back with my other girls.

Thanks man, I appreciate it.

I've definitely got more planned. That's my only problem with this car. It's too easy to spend money on.

That truck is supposed to be my daily though I havent drove it yet this year (brakes went out on it in the winter and I havent had the time to get it road worthy yet). But man do i love it, she is a ZQ8 with the spor suspension lowered 2/3 with 18s. She is fairly rough looking when you see her up close but from 20' she looks great.




Thanks for all the kind words everyone, I put my exhaust on this morning, definately sounds like a muscle car now. It is a little deeper than i expected, and probably louder than I want, but i will get used to it. probably just a tick more obnoxious than my GTO was. I will try and get a video sometime soon.

Well I have had the Dynomax Bullet catback installed for a month now, i have to admit, Im not happy with it. Fitment is not the greatest, it connects with my underbody on the passenger side causing a rattle at certain RPM. I have been under the car multiple times to adjust it and have gotten it to be better, but not perfect. Probably going to get a ball peen out and put a dent in it for clearance.

Other than that, the sound is not exactly what i was expecting either. For such a small muffler it is very quiet. I would describe it as more of a sports car sound as opposed to a muscle car sound. There isn't a lot of grunt behind it.

The best thing I can say about it is, that at least I don't have to look at the factory suitcases anymore. If i can get it to fit better I will probably keep it and put some cutouts on the car as well.
