Arrow Toolman's Street Sleeper [COTW 4/28/14]

I been needing to do a build thread for awhile now. I got my 2012 2SS LS3 Camaro September of 2012. As soon as I got it home I was planning my mods! Went to the shop 2 weeks later. Started out with cam, and headers. Month later it went back to shop to get blown! Havent looked back since. Soon to hit the track in the upcoming weekends, will post time slips. Still running stock bottom end and stock drivetrain/clutch. This car was not built to sit in a garage or be trailer to the track, its a street car that can handle its own with most cars and still hit the tracks on the weekends, followed by a bunch of car shows after!
Plenty more upgrades to come within the next few months, polished water pump, polished intake tubes, polished intercooler, new clutch, GForce 9'' rear, sway bars, and few more. Never ends!
