2013 AGM SS BUILD

Hello fellow Camaro5 members,

I have been following all of your builds since the beginning and all I have to say is WOW. You guys all have amazing cars and it is so great to learn from your experiences.
It has helped me to put together my build and appreciate everything along the way. From the DIY threads, forum members/vendors threads and information, this has been my haven for my car addiction.
My car and this forum have become a place to get away from the stresses of the every day grind. It has been entertaining to say the least! Thank you!

Now, about my car...
Ordered a 2013 AGM 2SS/RS L99, navi, with matt black stripes in January of 2013 from Gravel Chevrolet in Montreal, Canada.
Delivered in the "winter months" of March 2013 for my 25th birthday.

Mods...
It all began with a K&N intake (this was before I was a member of this forum lol)
The minute I signed up and read the hate for K&N, I quickly ordered a Cold Air Inductions and threw my K&N back in its box and put it for sale.
In August of 2013, I decided to make the trip down to Jannetty Racing for my first stage of mods.
Dynatech Headers, Intake Scoop and a SCT X3 tuner.
I was so happy with the results of the new sound and power.
Shortly after, I ordered a Ported TB from Apex and throttle response was improved.
This kept me satisfied until the winter months...
I then decided it would be wise to invest in some suspension mods if I were to continue adding power.
Pfadt trailing arms and tie rods, along with BMR cradle bushings, 1 inch lowering springs and Pedders front radius rod bushings were ordered.
I installed these components myself and it kept me busy for a while... (winter is long) took my time.
Spring 2014 came along and fellow member, Dropspeed had his build thread showing that you could pick up a front CTS-V brake upgrade for cheap through Amazon and that really interested me, so I bought that along with 4 braided brake lines from goodridge.
Needed to get cammed after watching members videos!

Results: 444whp and 422tq! I need some quarter mile times now...

Whats next? A supercharger ofcourse!
You guys are definitely a bad influence lol

Performance:
JRE 470 rough idle cam package w. LS3 conversion
Dynatech Headers with HFC
CAI intake black with scoop
Ported TB

Suspension:
BMR 1'' drop springs
ZL1 rear sway bar
BMR cradle bushings
Pfadt Rear Arm package
Pedders front Radius arm Insert
CTS-V front brakes (yellow)
Goodrich stainless brake lines
TSW Interlagos (black) F 20x9 R 20x10 +35 (ordered/coming soon)

Aestethic
Full badge removal
Smoked side markers
Painted rear calipers yellow to match fronts
Rear tail light bezels painted matt black
Removed intake clam shell
Fuel rail flip with braided line

Future Mods:
SLP or ECS novi Supercharger
ID850s
Fuel pump upgrade

Thanks guys! I was taking photos with my Iphone and Ipad "upside down" meaning the volume buttons were on top so all my photos upload upside down! I will take my car out tonight for a drive and take some photos in sunlight with a nice back ground to replace my current crappy garage ones!

Very excited to lose some rotating weight on the car. Bang for the buck this is HUGE.
Stock SS wheel and tires are Front 62lbs per corner, Rear 67lbs per corner.
New TSW Interlagos with Michelin PSS 255/40R20 F and R 285/35R20
Fronts 50lbs each and Rears 54lbs. Another 0.5 lbs are saved per corner with new lugs.
Total Savings: 52lbs or 13lbs per corner!
