What about some winter rims and tires... SS Rims with some Nitto Motivo's. Maybe I should of dressed the tires so they don't look so dry.

Thanks,

Well thinking along the lines of IRON MAN I may do the following,

ZL1 rocker with a vinyl STARK ENTERPRISES w/gloss black lettering and a thin gold outline.

Also a friend found this possible cup holder not sure of our dims http://www.thinkgeek.com/product/f3b3/

Oh and if when ... a carbon fiber hood is available again (OEM) have it painted a very clear gold peral essence. (sorry for bad spelling)

Blue interrior lighting...

Here is a photo with the clouds showing on the rear of the car. Kinda cool and was not expected, also you can see the sun shining off of it.

Did the fuse pull (placebo) I removed the #5 and #20, I also removed the #10 from the rear fuse box. I guess tomorrow I will see if this is any different. Yes I use premium gas and Yes it has been about five tank fulls now. Also yes I put the #10, #5 and #20 back in the car and started it. Seems smoother than before oh and yes I removed the #8 Exhaust why not I said may as well try it while I am here.

Below is a picture of the rear fuse box, just in case your wondering what the #10 fuse is.

After looking at my post What is the R2 EXH Flap for... bah... do I need to remove that also... hummm...

I also found this thread:

http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=251422&page=7

Post #167 shows that pulling the trunk as well is in fact recommended during a fuse pull for this reason even though it's a ZL1 area.

I think I might go try it again with the trunk fuse pull and try yet another test next weekend. I went driving today and I got 23 mpg as well as +/-1 on hills. Highway and cruise control of course though when possible were used.

Prior to the first fuse pull I couldn't get over 20 mpg. I am going to go with the fact that I've probably been getting better quality gas as well as the fuse pull both have to have helped.

I have noticed it's much easier to shift and be in traffic, as I said somewhere else... Even if it's subconscious, that's fine by me.
