2013 SS/RS 1LE "ToSlow"-Build

Background, my name is Dalton, Im 22 live in North Texas. I have owned 3 cars, all Camaros.
My First Car: 2001 3.8L Camaro T-top

My Second car (first i bought with my own money)
2002 35th Aniversary SLP SS- Fully loaded
-17" Billet Specialties Lightweight Billet Alluminum Drag Rims- 11" rear, 10" front (315 and 275)
-SLP Cold Air Duct, SLP Raised Lid, K&N, MSD plug wires, NGK_R Plugs, SLP LM1, B&M Short Shifter, 2x Kicker L5 Solo Baric-X subs, 1,000watt Kicker Class-d Mono Block, Kenwood LCD HU



I Had no intention on gettting a new car as i was 2 payments away from being payed off, then i was riding with my boss one day and he said "hey man, why dont you get a new car? you make decent money, dont really have any bills" so i was like nahh.. this ones nice and almost payed off. I texted him later that night, "Dammit Dave". And had already found the 1LE. I then Spent 2 weeks going through 3 different cars because they were selling as soon as the tires hit the ground, finaly gave them my money and said THAT ONE IS MIIIIIINE!!!

3 days later I picked her up.
2013 SS/RS 1LE in Victory Red. 1 of 76.
MyLink w/ Nav. Backup system, and NPP

At the Dealer




Got it Home:







Then took off the dealer badge and blacked out the bowties:

Got cold so i had to take off the Supercar G2 Tires and intall Some 295-35-20 Nitto Invos. I bought them from Discount, and took it to Chevy to mount, so that my $1400 each rims, would not be messed up.............and the f'd em all 4 up.


so once again, rims repainted at chevys expense.


Exhaust party- took off the NPP.

Installed- SOLO HF Cats, BBK 2 3/4" Off-road x-pipe, to the 4" slash cut Satin black Tips

Now we are current, just this weekend i installed a footwell lighting kit from Phasetek, ordered my Custom plate, heritage grille, a CAI Inc intake, air scoop, and washer bottle relocate. So far the footwell, and the heritage grille are the only things that have come in, havnt had time to pull the bumper for the grille yet.

Car looks great. You sound like to have my type of luck regarding your rims. Also, nice new mods! Looks like new grill, CAI, washer relocation kit, intake scoop and maybe a skip shift? (can't see through padded envelope) lol

Can't figure out though why you got rid of the NPP exhaust and went with straight pipes

NPP wasn't loud enough for me. And I wasn't planning on putting in HF cats before. Hindsight I would have kep the NPP and put in the Solo
Cats
