Just got done installing Eibach front/rear bars and just some info for future reference, the rear bar took 10 min and the front over 2 hours. I finally figured out the front and it wouldnt take as long now but it was a bear getting the stock bar out and the beafier Eibach back in. I am posting some pics of the Halltech intake I am getting as there is 1 more piece to be taken out of mold before I get it. It looks awesome and performs.

The stereo install isnt as clean looking as others as I got the larger box to hold a JL 12W7 sub and you have to remove the entire carpeting on the drivers side because this box is so much deeper. It may not look as clean but the sound is well worth it. I do plan on taking it to the track after it is dialed in and I am going to get drag slicks on my extra set of stock wheels I have. As soon as other parts become available like, gears, HD driveshaft and axles, I am going to do heads and NOS and bottom end. As for the question about the ARH headers with the Borla S axle back, all I can say is WOW. If I had a way to get video with good sound, I would post but I am electronically dumb when it comes to video equipment that would actually sound decent. The other question about the interior being orange or red, it is the Inferno orange interior to match the exterior and I would HIGHLY recommend this option to many of the other color camaros as it really makes the car inside. Thanks for the support of my build as it has been so enjoyable through the process and now after the tune I get to see what it will really do.

That is one heck of a lot of modifications. I noticed the Warren Co. plate. I live just outside of B.G. myself. It would be cool to see your ride sometime.

All you need now is the GFX, then I think you got it all. BTW, get the shop to clean up the amp install...

I am actually waiting to what GFX come available as I haven't seen any that really impress as a total kit. I like the Hennessey kit but there is no rear section. The stereo install is not complete yet. The amp will be hidden as I have the front cover plate but am deciding as to how to cut it out to look the best and it will carpeted as well so you will only see parts of the amp that I cut out on the face board. Thanks ADM for the input and the one hose will be routed differently when the new intake arrives as the Hennessey is only temporary and I didn't put any effort to this hose as it will route different with the Halltech intake. If you are near me, give a PM and stop by sometime as there is maybe 1 other camaro in my area that I have seen. It would be nice to find some people around my area who love these camaros as much as I do.

damn nice biuld, right now im cruising a aftermarket turbo srt-4 but am working on getting a camaro ss, was wanting to know. i noticed you have the 6 speed manual tranny, will the stock clutch hold your hp or will you need to upgrade, im still stuck on if i want the auto or manual. reason i ask is im coming up to the 350 whp mark on my srt-4 and will need a clutch soon. would rather avoid a clutch install on a new camaro

Just to piggy-back on to streetsteve's question, I was also wondering if you had to upgrade the rear-end to handle the add'l torque. Earlier discussions said the drive-train was rated for ~600hp (but that may have been someone's guess). You mentioned future gear upgrades, was that for the rear-end, the tranny, or both?

So, clutch, tranny, and rear-end still stock?

Thanks,

Jack

I have been told by very high end builders that the trans will hold 700hp no problem. Beyond that is questionable. My car onlly has 1000 miles on it so once the clutch goes, it will also be upgraded. As I said before, this build is to drive it, so if anything breaks, it will be replaced with new parts to hold the HP. This is kinda trial and error as not many people have modified these cars this much to find out what it will or will not handle. The rear gears I am talking of are in the rear diff and I am thinking that a 3.90 with this setup will be optimal and just maybe a 4.10 but I am afraid either way it is going to take some fine tuning and suspension upgrades to dial it in. This is just part of the process and eventually there will be enough aftermarket parts to set this car exactly as needed to get best results.
