Same. With the little amount of suspension stuff I've done, it handles so much better.

Alright well I am picking up my buddies bilsteins shocks this weekend cheap. Gonna get BMR springs hopefully next month and drop this thing finally. Also picking up some 16' DR's I know the diff is like a time bomb as it is but I'm gonna baby the shit out of it. Just want something better than my all seasons and I'm getting them cheap. Gonna put in my tick M/C and bleeder, hopefully that helps my clutch issues and push my monster clutch back alittle bit.

Few more updates... I picked up my Bilstein Shocks from my buddy, now i just need to order my BMR springs and im all set to go. Also picked up a used UMI 35mm sway bar. Trying to get my full suspension except from A-arms done by the summer time. Got my 16 NT555r's as well. They seem to hook really nice hopefully ill have some good passes once the weather clears up.

hopefully mid-late April it will be lowered with front a rear sway bars than all i need is a torque arm. I have been debating weather or not to put a cutout in my exhaust. Its an extra $250 that i could spend somewhere else but who knows.

UPDATE!!! Well i havent installed the shocks but i did get my brakes and sway bar installed. But in even better news... i got a Factory SLP Center Mount Exhaust!!! I have always wanted one and finally found one i could afford. Needs some TLC but its almost ready to install.

Some might hate this but im putting my Loudmouth 2 back on. The car sounded so much better with that exhaust than this SLP dual dual. Way to quiet for my taste. Ill probably keep it though because it is nice to have with the car as it is pretty rare.

Also just bought some Depo headlights a few minutes ago. I didnt want to but i caught some mositure in my DIY'ed ones so i had to bite the bullet. I really wish i would have bought Insidethreats a while back.

Basically my plans now are get the CME painted and installed, get some BMR springs, i already have bilstein shocks and finally get this thing lowered. Than buy some replica 17x11 deep dish ZR1's and the outside of the car is "done". Hopefully end of June early july i will have all of that done but who knows.

What are you planning on doing with the old stock SS sway bars? I might be able to take them off your hands...

Well a lot of time has gone by and i really haven't done much lol it seems i just keep collecting parts and not install anything.

Ive got a few things ready to install, CME, Rear sway bar, Bilstein shocks but i just can't find the time. Im starting my second year of college plus working 25-35 hours a week so the car is really on the back burner at the moment.

I do have some decent plans for the car though. I picked up some Race stars for the rear so hopefully come next spring i will have a full race star setup for it. Also In the next few months i should be able to get the CME installed as well as ordering and installing my springs. I was also able to pick up a corbeau FX1 race seat. Its very different than stock but i love it. Not the easiest to get in and out of it , but once your in, you are not moving.

Ill try to keep this post up to date as best as i can. I wish BMR was running a labor day sale :(

Update: well i couldn't wait... BMR Springs have been ordered!

Car is getting new tires put on tomorrow. Going back with the BFG g-force super sports, had awesome luck with my last set so. I Installed a Rapter shift light, i also picked up a 98mm FTP lid and a z06 MAF. Not getting installed anytime soon, hopefully should have a clutch after the first of the year than I'm saving for heads cam. Most likely a 228r on 110 LSA with ported 243's/799. Might give her some giggle juice later on, who knows haha.

Rapter shift light is in. Got a pioneer double din for christmas. That is being installed tomorrow. Have a spare bezel on its way to double d mods as we speak. Buddy of mine found some 799 ported heads with comp 650 springs for a good price so those will be going on my car along with a cam hopefully this winter.

Started a new little project, CTS-V brake upgrade tucked up the stock 17in ZR1's. Already ordered the calipers and caliper hardware. Have to get a spacer made up to move the wheel out a bit. Gonna look into which pads and rotors to get plus the custom brake lines. Should be a awesome upgrade from stock.

Well where do i begin.. Car hasn't changed to much.. but my plans have. I was planning on doing a very nice Heads/Cam setup.. Had everything i need except a cam and pushrods.. i sold everything. i realized every dime i had was going towards that and not my savings account. So now i am focused more on my school work and getting that done before anything crazy happens..

Also my car ended up having a trans issue. Car wouldn't shift into any gears, ended up replacing everything inside the bell housings with a mantic ER-2 kit.. i love it, great clutch and will be able to hold the power i want in the future.

I got my V brakes all setup under 17in wheels i might add, took alot of help from my buddy doing all the grinding and fitting then more grinding.. but its done and looks amazing. Also i picked up some c5z wheels for my car. One of my favorite wheels for this car.

Don't plan on doing much else now..I have MWC torque arm i would like to install next spring and i want to swap out my 2 point SFC's for some 3 points. I'm hopefully going to be getting a new job this winter, which will give me some more money to play around with this car and finally get a Daily.

Also a couple buddies and i made the journey from Maryland down to Bowling Green, Kentucky for LS Fest 2015. We had a blast and can't wait to do it next year. We also got to check out the corvette plant and museum which is a must do!

Looks amazing and the c5z in Speedline grey is the best factory wheel for our cars IMHO
