This thread is real alluring with the rendering and what not, but I am not sure how actual production/delivery of the products will go.
I contacted you guys about buying a diffuser and was asked for my contact info so I could be given a call.
Two weeks later, no call yet. Worst part is that is just the order process, which is normally always the easiest part in a transaction as people don't normally turn down money.
Anyways, needless to say, I ordered it elsewhere.

Hey BreedaAS, first off let me start by apologizing as it appears we must have dropped the ball. I just went through all my PMs and for whatever the reason, I don't have your reply. That doesn't mean I couldn't have deleted it by accident. So if I did, again I apologize as thats not our intent. Just for my own mental psyche, if you can forward your reply PM I would greatly appreciate it as I'm stumped.

BTW, I understand not everybody knows us personally as individuals. What we do on this board comes from the desire to help other members out.

Our " Engine Bay" thread is over 2 years old and has over 310,000 views. In that time we've tried our best to help other members with their projects. We have even helped vendors bring to market stuff we've developed just to help everybody out.

Just this past week we have received PMs requesting help on sourcing a hard line to replace a broken line on PS rack, where to source the aftermarket connectors we used for the injectors harness, if we can ask my buddy who did our front crash bar to replicate another one, etc..... all which have nothing to do with CF. This is just our normal MO.

We are just enthusiast just like everybody on here. We took on this CF venture after receiving multiple requests from members. They wanted us to make the parts we were doing for our project available to them. We do this more from a passion for the hobby than for any financial gain.

Got give props to our residence Z/28 fellow motor head "Joeyrotorhead" as he was instrumental in us acquiring the rest of the Z/28 parts we needed. We couldn't have done it without him! Thanks again Bro

Here are some pictures before they go off to get replicated.

What would the expected weight difference be over the factory plastic parts? Did you guys already get the Z/28 spoiler?

If these component were made from steel or even aluminum, the difference would be substantial but plastic weights next to nothing. The main difference is just visually it's more appealing IMO. The other benefit for non Z/28 owners is the fact the parts are restricted and they can now have another option.

We do have the rear spoiler and diffuser.

Would there be a way to modify your z/28 splitter to fit the 14 v6? If so us 14 v6 guys would really be drooling. Speaking for myself I'd pop on it right away!

Trust me when I say this, your better off getting a new bumper for the SS model and just getting it repainted. It isnt that hard to switch them out. This is coming from a guy that we started tinkering three years ago, I didn't know squat about cars. As of current, we have dissemble our car to the last bolt. I wish I could give you a different answer. The thing is mold making is very expensive and not financial feasible to make all kinds of variation.

BTW, we learn everyday from the good folks on here, so always got gve props for all the help we've gotten.

Don't quote me but if I not mistaken, it was in the $300 range. We get our stuff from Jarred at Lake Side in Lake Elsinore 20 over cost.

Yeah I got a quote from Maureen for the 14 ss front bumper and hood painted and shipped it's around 1,500 which isn't bad I'd still need the hood insert though but it doesn't seem like a bad deal if I can run the z/28 aero parts after that!

I wouldn't get the stuff already painted as we had to return a hood and roof panel because they were both damage during shipping. Seems crazy but they are shipped in a box without any additional padding, so they just kinda bounce around. Its better to get them unpainted from your local dealer and if damaged, you can always return them. When your ready hit me and I will see if I can hook you up.

Here a rendering of G5.R as it will appear at SEMA representing the community.

Also posted the process of removing the roof on our build thread as we are replacing it with a carbon piece. the stock roof weigh in at approx 22 lbs. We are shoot to drop approx 15 lbs. Here is the link: http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showth...285800&page=12
