OMG, it is SUCH a feeling! I love the extra power! I can't wait to upgrade my suspension and drive train a little bit!

I do like the look of the AAC side marker LED's, but I'll be honest with you, my experience with AAC products has left a sour taste in my mouth.

I will find out on Thursday. Haven't had time to get it in for a dyno run. I'm estimating 500 to the wheels.

Just some updates:

I moved from San Diego, CA to Tega Cay SC last month. Or more accurately, my GF, my dad, and my uncle moved us from San Diego to Tega Cay! I've been in Afghanistan since April, but am coming home soon.

My car was towed on flatbed by my dad and uncle behind a Uhaul. During the move, the front end of the car sustained some damage.






Thinking about using this opportunity to redo the front end. Thinking "maybe" ZL1 front end conversion?

I've also made the decision to ditch my silver stripes. I'm going to instead go with red hash marks on the fenders and that's it for now.

I also am purchasing a set of lightly used 1000 hp DSS axles. The plan eventually is to purchase a DSS 3.5" aluminum drive shaft, and probably jannety's posi mod. Looking at strengthening up my rear end so I don't have to worry about possible driveline failure due to the added torque from my supercharger.

Still have not touched the tuning at all, but as soon as I get home am planning on getting it properly tuned. Have to get it retuned to 93 octane anyway. Let's see if we can get her up to 550 rwhp. And on that note, I have a ZL1 fuel pump sitting at home waiting to install.

Just had an MPD1 rear valence installed. I think it really completes the rear end of the car. This is how it should have come from the factory.

Although......I'm a little worried about how it might look with the ZL1 sideskirts and a front splitter.......which is another mod that I want to do.

Today I decided to remove my sparks restoration SS emblem off of my heritage grill. I decided the stealthy no emblem look was in order. I'm still keeping the rear SS emblem though.

Also the car will be going in the shop soon for some injectors, a boost a pump, and some Megan racing coil overs. REALLY looking forward to getting those coil overs installed as I have about had it with the ride quality of my lowering springs. I have a set of front Pfadt and rear pedders springs that will be going up for sale once I get my coil overs installed. Stay tuned!
