Not Your Average Daily Driver

Car is up for sale. 34k OBO

I figured since I'm about to start modding my 2SS, protocol mandates that have a build thread for any and all that are interested in my build. As a total rookie to modding I haven't the first clue where to begin, other than the fact that pictures are a must. As far as actual mods, here is my list in no particular order

1. Cold Air Intake - Done ADM Performance Race Intake and Scoop
2. Borla S-Type exhaust cat back Xpipe - Done
3. Smoked tail lights, reverse lights, and turn signals
4. Powder Coat Stock Rims Gloss Black - Done
5. Custom Black Stripe(s)
6. Tune - Done Friday the 13th at ADM performance April 2012
7. Replace Silver Dash and Door panels with Victory Red panels.
8. Paint Interior plastic trims Victory Red
9. Black and Red Bowtie Actually decided to debadge
10. Ported Throttle Body Done VMAX ported throttle body
11. MGW Short Throw Shifter Done

Been a Blast moding so far!

Just got the windows tinted and removed the chrome tail light bezels, will post pics later tonight. I plan on painting the bezels black and replacing them later this week. Also planning on adding transformers edition stripe package and raised spoiler in all black as well as purchasing a Sinister Hood.

Few new mods since my last post. Bought the AAC concept LED side markers and installed them. Also had the windows tinted which made a huge difference in the way the car looks! Will try and get some pics tomorrow when the sun is out. Also dropping it off on tuesday so the guys over at ADM Performance can get a CAI installed while they powder coat the wheels black.

So better late than never. I got some pics last night of the new goodies. I picked up some new Forgestar F14's. The rears are 18x11 +48 with BFG G force KDW 335/30 18s and the fronts are18x8.5 +35 with 245/45 18s. Also added an Alpine mp500 amp with 2 MTX 4500 subs in subthump stealth enclosures. I also recently dyed the stitching inside red but don't have any pics of that at the moment.

Had my MGW short throw shifter installed by ADM Performance this morning as well as picking up a tune. Apparently I picked a bad day to do it because the weather was uncooperative... maybe it had something to do with the fact that today is friday the 13th... who knows. Either way I ended up with 400HP at the wheels after much coaxing from Andy!
I'll post pictures of the MGW short throw later.
