When I picked up the car, I guess you could say I was a little dissapointed in the sound. It didn't sound muscle car, I just wanted it to be loud and then maybe a little louder! I was starting slow and didn't want to void my warranty so I had some solo high flow cats and a corsa exhaust put on and WOW! Man I was in love with the sound!

6/1/2011:

Since I take the car to some shows, I wanted to keep my warranty but ditch the stock manifolds. So I added some DT Shorties! Didn't really notice any difference.

I did have some issues with the gaskets matching up to the high flow cats, had to double up the gaskets on each side. So far so good.

At the same time I got some 22" 360 Forged Wheels in and replaced the GM 21's. I was trying to make my car my own and I saw one too many camaros with the GM 21's on it around me.

Also had custom center caps for the wheels:

11/23/2011:

Caved in and took the car down to ECS for a tune after installing my VMAX TB from Mike Norris! They are wizards down there and my car put down 420/425 RWHP/RWTQ. I'm pretty happy with it for now ;)

I'll be dropping the car on a Street II Pedders Package and installing IOM Calipers soon! Stay tuned.

Thanks Pete same to you and your family, just waiting on the brake lines and alignment kit. Can't wait to see how she drives after everything.

Thanks! Did you ever decide on a new set of rims? I was thinking the ZL1 front too but the group buy got real good on the aggressor, plus I wanted it to be unique. Even though I thought i was the only one from NJ but then 6 more people popped up :facepalm:. Seen a lot of ZL1 front conversions already. Although they have great deals I saw you can get it painted. I really debated that one really hard. :drinking:

Hey do you know the specs on that cam? I want to keep mine NA as well, but I'm torn between setups. I live in Queens so ECS was one of the shops I considered (as well as Tune Time, Cartek, Vette Doctors, etc.). I was originally going to go with the G6X3, but if this is a meaner setup I'll reconsider.

pierre777 03-28-2012 12:36 AM

awesome car man i was thinking about the same setup, 480 whp is really good but the supercharger venom was streaming in my veins so i just ordered a maggie :iono:

Not sure if it is a meaner setup than the G6X3, that is a pretty big cam but so is the devil cam. ECS doesn't give out the specs of the cam only thing I know is it will be on a 112LSA. I like the idle of the cam the most out of the ones I've heard and the guys at ECS are top notch.

I've seen this cam + fast intake make north of 500whp, heads/cam somewhere around ~525whp.

Thanks! Yeah 480whp would be nice, not like I can't get into trouble with the 420 i'm already putting down:bellyroll:. If I can throw the fast on I'll probably make close to 500whp or more, then I'll go back for heads and AAM 3.91 gears the next go around.

Your gonna love the maggie, probably make great power! What are you hoping for in power? I was originally gonna do a blower cam then a Ysi blower and go for north of 800whp but adding it all up having to beef up the rear end, driveshaft, axels for reliability just wasn't the road I was willing to travel.

VanquisherSS 04-01-2012 12:55 AM

Ride was a bit rough on the Pedders Coils. Picked up a set of Pedders XA Coilovers. Should be here end of the week. Selling my Springs if anyone is interested. PM Me. :chevy:

Coilovers arrived today they are in fantastic shape, looks like the box took most of the abuse, thanks ups :yikes:. Coilovers were packed up beautifully! Thanks 02blueSS! :thumbup:

Update for my install at ECS, in order to plant the power i'll be making going going to put in poly control arm bushing set(rear), poly trailing arms bushings, and poly toe rod arm bushings. Maybe some adjustable toe rods if I decide to drop 2"+ I want that slammed look with the 22's
