Could use some help!!!!

Hey everybody, I have a 2010 SS, that I'm procharging this winter. With what I already have done, I'll be around the 650whp mark. My question is in regards to the essentials. Clutch, drive shaft, rear end. What should I do, do I need to beef up the rear end, could I use zl1 parts, where could I get them for the best deals, and basically what do I need to change and what can handle the power in stock form? Thanks everyone.

It looks like you're in MD, but we have Car & Coffee out here in the San Francisco East Bay, and I just finished giving the Hot Wheel a vacuum/wheel-tire-well cleaning/foam/bath/dry for our Cars & Coffee.

Had my Solo high flow cats and Vmax ported throttle body installed at MRT. Definitely noticed better throttle response. Lucky for my wallet, I'm running out of engine / exhaust mods. On to tires and rims next.

Painted my calipers with G2 Caliper paint, IOM. I highly recommend it, just get a different brush to apply the paint and save yourself some time.

That looks pretty good I did mine with the G2 and it came out pretty bad. It was my fault for trying to do it as the sun was about to set with no garage or lighting. The 300 mosquito's attacking me didn't help either. For some reason bugs are attracted to yellow. My car is being humped by them constantly and since I painted my calipers in yellow they would get stuck to the paint. I plan on redoing the calipers but not till I buy a new house.

Thanks for the comments guys. Yea while applying the paint on mine it wouldn't dry enough to get the decals on so I had to let it sit over night and put the decals on almost 24hrs later. Other than that it appears to be a durable product. The paint match is spot on too. I'll get more pictures when the weather clears up here. Maybe tomorrow.

Aqua blue LED dome and trunk lights put in. 5 minute well spent. Now I just need to find the right screws to put in my door trim in and I will be happy with my interior.

Aired up all 4 tires to the correct pressure this morning.
Filled it up with gas. DIC showed 25.3 MPG when I calculated it out it came out to 25.7 MPG.
