Picked these up from a fellow forum member. Polished them and painted the backing plates to match the car. Didn't really want the typical RotoFab Whipple covers so went with chrome coil pack covers. They should really look great with the polished Whipple I went with.

We are getting close. It started getting dyno tuned yesterday and it appears it will be delivered back to me by the end of the week! I have a stack of mods piled up to start working on including some significant ones!

Thanks for your feedback I appreciate it. I just cannot wait to get the car back and REALLY start the cosmetic phase of the build. I have lots of plans and parts waiting including custom fenders, verticle doors, new front bumper changes, hood modifications, custom gauges, graphics changes, rear quarter vents, anvil spoiler, rotors, and a few more mechanical things as well not to mention much, much more....

I am building the dream I have had for years......

Numbers are IN!!!!

The build and the tuning are done!! All that is left is the final drive-ability test that Livernois does which will happen as soon as they get the roads clear from all the bad weather and then the car will be delivered back to me.

The stock dyno runs came back with a baseline of 377 RWHP and 375 RWTQ. The final tuning has put the car at 715 RWHP and 572 RWTQ.

I could not be more excited and the graph looks amazing!

No kidding...the torque comes on quick and stays flat in the 500's all the way. Should make traction interesting!!

By the way I did get my order placed so thank you!!

That wasn't my car you quoted with those mirrors but they look to be the Oracle ones. Mine is getting Showstoppers with the sequential LEDs in them in matte black.

WOW!!!! Great numbers man! Would love to see this beast in action. Good luck with the cosmetic stuff. I can't wait to get mine out of storage, I have a dozen boxes of parts to put on mine once the weather breaks. But knowing Michigan, they will be sitting there until May.....

oh my bad that was in your build thread, I was thinking they were the AAC ones as well but wasn't sure, matte black will look sweet on your ride

Some parts starting to come back from paint! A Havoc rear diffuser finished in matte black! Also one I think people will either love or hate but I seldom see, is the T10 hood insert from ACS. Very similar to the traditional ZL1 insert but it has a polycarbonate window like the last couple years Z06 Vette. On mine you'll be able to clearly see the polished Whipple along with the red strut brace, throttle body, etc!!

Not yet Nick. Livernois has been trying to do the drivability testing and make final adjustments but the weather hasn't cooperated. Hopefully done by mid day tomorrow before the next snowfall and delivered back to me Friday.

I have Halos, grill lighting, and interior stuff from you guys to install as well when I have the front clip off for a little transformation! Stay tuned!

Can you post pictures of the Havoc diffuser install? I am thinking about getting one, but have read that they have some massive fitment issues. Your not too far from me maybe I can come down and check your out when you get it put on?

Custom embroidered headrests came back today and I am very pleased. They were able to replicate the same Scorpion used in the badges Emblem Pros custom made so I could carry the theme a few other places.

I'm not happy with how a much the vinyl puckered even with a lower than normal stitch count but they are very cold and freshly stretched so I am also sure they will lay much flatter after a bit of time.
