Not my thing, but I can still appreciate the craftsmanship that went into it

Is the MAGNAFLOW exhaust system advisable for a sexy sound system n additional HP? Or is there another which would be better of than a MAGNAFLOW?

Id appriciate your opinions.

It is just before 4am in somewhat cold Southern California. Just a quick update on the Tjin Edition Camaro from the rendering. Not only will we have the Revolution front lip on the car, but we just finished installing their hood as well, and their parts looks even better in person then in pics. We will be posting pics of the finished build in a few days.

Looks good, but why get rid of the fake gills? Make them real, that's what I want to see! Nobody is doing that for some reason.

I know I'm in the minority here and I'm sure they put a lot of work into it but imo they ruined a camaro.

Amazing looking car. Those Classic Camaro badges (I think they are classic) look great, they really caught my eye, considering how much awesome went into this car. Cool video as well

I like how Tjin has dabbed in like japanese, and american. I am anxious to see him build something like the new M3 or a Bent GTC, or something. He's one of the reasons I love mix and matching parts from everywhere on certain cars, from my Cobalt to my Silverado, and etc.

Its nice to see people trying new things, and a different look and approach. Not everything someone does is ganna be popular with everyone, I never liked seeing the last production ss's and ws6's with GTR badges on them or SIR on them, or ugly giant wings from pep boys, or saturday morning special wheels made in some 3rd world country that weigh to much and cheaply chromed, mounted on them. Or weird flame sticker decal stripes up the side that were peeling and or discolored...etc...

Riced up American muscle is disgusting. However a "Tuner" approach to American muscle can be tasteful. Tuner being the Americanized term adopted by youth americans who over glammed their civics and integras...Tjin is a good example of what can be transplanted universally from one automotive culture "scene" to another.

Much like some guy taking a first gen cammy and dropping a 2jz into there, I dont like it. I dont agree with it, and reminds me of a mustang fastback with a RB26 slapped in its engine compartment in a stupid movie.

However I can appreciate the clean execution of work, and ability the car can still garner with a different heart beating under the hood.

Much like a White 09 Bmw M3 running around Laguna Beach with a 7.0L LS7 and a Supercharger....

Weird and odd, but still cool none the less. Some people just go to the beat of their own drum. Respect given where deserved, and he deserves it.

That was one of my favorite SEMA Camaros. Here are a couple pics I took while we were at the show.

Is that body kit (not hood) available for purchase? I think the front is Rev, what about the side skirts and rear?
