They aren't bad! The people are really cool and they do good work. Communication seems to be an issue though and they are a bit on the pricey side haha.

Brake/Rotor Upgrade!


Finally got around to upgrading my braking setup. I think the stock rotors are ugly and the stock caliper color is even uglier. So I upgraded them all to my liking! I decided to go ahead and do this because I found a deal on eBay that I couldn't pass up. It was the R1 Concepts eLine series slotted and drilled rotors and ceramic brake pads for all four wheels for under $300! What a steal! Sold directly from R1 Concepts themselves! Needless to say, they look amazing! As for the stock ugly grey calipers, a can of high temp red caliper paint from my local Orielly's solved that issue. A member named Dan here gave me the replacement "Chevrolet" and "Brembo" lettering. Very happy with how it all turned out






Here is a vlog of the installation as with most of my mods Enjoy!

Looks good. I figured with the whole Savitar theme that you would have done a blue to match Savitar's suit. Must have gone with red to represent the Flash. Nice upgrade and well done.

Haha believe me, I considered it! But there may come a time when the Savitar thing wears off and I want just a cool looking ride and I like the black/grey/red combo haha. But thanks buddy!

Exhaust/Diffuser Upgrade!

As much as I loved the Stainless Works retro catback, since the very beginning my other option has always haunted me. The road not taken sorta thing. And I had been hearing clips of it from a buddy on a very similar build as mine and this thing sounded ridiculous! I wanted it, NEEDED IT. So, I did what I said I wouldn't and messed with the exhaust again This time, I brought the Corsa Xtreme catback into the family. This is Corsa's most aggressive system they offer, and man do they mean that. This thing sounds wicked! It's noticeably louder in every way, except for the drone, because there is none! That is Corsa's mantra and man they do it good. I've always thought Corsa and an LS went together like PB&J. Soulmates if you will. I do not regret the decision at all!

Here is the vlog of that installation, followed by just the sound clips for those of you who don't care about the meat and potatoes:




As amazing as it turned out, there was an issue. My muffler shop didn't want to attempt the changeover to quad tips, which meant bye bye to those great looking SS Clones, exposing quite a bit since there were only single exits now instead of duals:



That bothered the crap out of me, so I swapped my old 1LE diffuser out for an eBay one that a lot of members on here love. It's easy to see why:



And as always, here is the vid on that:



Overall, I think it turned out amazing and I'm very pleased with the result!

Back To Square One

If you have read my build thread, you would know my very first pans for the car where to get NPP mufflers as well as a 1LE rear diffuser to accommodate the quad tips. After many different exhaust variations, I decided to return to that. Minus the 1LE diffuser, I just modified my current eBay Shark fin one to accommodate the NPP tips. I don't have many pictures, but I do have the finish product along with a video that more or less explains everything and how the new set up sounds.





I will update the main "Current Look" page when I am able to get some better pictures!
