Indy pace car on the way!

I have not taken possession of the car yet, but theres no way i'll leave it completely stock, so I figured i'd start a thread.

I won a 2ss indy pace car off the hot rod power tour giveaway, i'm stoked. Being a die hard LS and camaro guy, theres no better prize!

my current ls powered cars are a 00 z28 drag car, 66 impala thats 5.3 swapped, and an Avalanche. My father is also a big ls guy and has an 02 SS anniversary vert and a 04 GTO, along with a 67 RS thats being swapped with a 6.0. The 2010 will be well recieved.

My question is that of bolt ons. I definately want to add headers and a full exhaust and a cold air of some sort, and looks like there is a bunch of options to choose from, I have some time to pick those out...any comments on your ffavorites will be appreciated. The car will get a tune immediately, as I use HP Tuners already, and have tuned a couple 2010s before( one 440ci ls7 car and a 427 ls3).

Plans are to take it to the dyno, get a baseline, tune it, then go to the strip and do a baseline there, load tune in and see what she does.

I do realize this is a limited run car, so I won't completely bastardize it, but its just too much fun to leave stock.

car is an l99 auto, so no big cams/stall until the warranty runs out at least.
heres a media pic:

Lucky!!! CONGRATS ON THE NEW CAMARO!! when are you gonna get it?

And not to be a thread jacker, but that's why I don't like limited Camaros Pace cars. They are SO awesome and everything and are WAY better than stock Camaros. But since they're limited and rare, you cant really mod them out and make them your own.

Congrats on the pace anyway!

I guess i'll join the club!

What do yall think about taking off the indy stickers on the door, maybe ordering some new ones from the general and putting them away for safekeeping? If I do it now there wont be a big circle in the paint...I like everything about the car except that huge sticker. Of course i'll probly forget about it once I have it in the garage!

It may be 2 months before I get her, I can't wait

You might wanna be watch out. You're gonna have to be VERY careful not to scrath the paint or mess up the car.

But I think you should just keep them on.

Very Nice... I think Becky was going to take hers off and I was leaning that way but now I'm sort of on the fence...

Just started a poll to get some opinions...
