New Member & Sponsor! Greetings! (pic heavy thread)

Hey guys! My name's Logan (clearly by my username) and I've been involved in LS Performance for about a decade. The company I now work for is an online retailer that deals with all things performance related. So if you need parts or tech support feel free to give me a ring! I'm more than happy to cut the Camaro5 guys a deal!!

On to my current project, no it isnt a 5th gen camaro, but I think some of you may enjoy it!

I purchased a 2007 ZX10r that I just simply did not enjoy. Previous bike was a built up hayabusa so needless to say, the ZX10 paled in comparison and quickly saw itself in the for sale section of Craigslist. Found a guy in Wisconsin to trade with and my LSX build began!


Came home with this:







Car was a 5spd, built 306 with a Vortech blower. Naturally, I tore a perfectly good 400hp car apart and sold the drivetrain.







The interior was a nice blue (ugly) which I hate to keep but cannot part with for some odd reason! Replaced the carpet with American Muscles lightweight kit (fitment is shit, do not purchase)









And out with the old K member/front suspension and in with the new stuff, progress of the engine bay shaving etc as well!

Once the engine bay was all buttoned up I set out to rebuild my 6.0. Purchased from a guy named Andy that works at Libertyville Chevrolet in Illinois. Bought it in good faith for $800 after he told me it was in 100% great condition, sure enough I pull a main cap and the crank is chewed to hell. Rebuild commenced. Shout out to Andy for refusing to refund me just $100.00 on the entire purchase!!!!












With the engine sitting where we need it, the mock up begins!

Logan, Welcome to our happy little corner of the net, and to Camaro5. There is a BIG fridge on the back porch with anything you can think of in it...help yourself...of course only take what you can LEGALLY have. Make yourself at home on one of the big fluffy couches, kick your shoes off, put your feet up on one of the tables, yes we are allowed to do that, mom's, dad's, wives', husband's, girlfriend's and boyfriend's here don't care....and take it easy.



oh...btw....every once in a while a food fight breaks out...so you may not want to wear nice clothes here.

Welcome!!
