Well, in other news, my other project, a 2013 Kawasaki ZX6R 636, that was pretty much built for the track, was stolen last night. That makes 2 bikes in 3 months that have been stolen. Maybe im just destined to not have a motorcycle.

Oh no!

So sorry to hear that Derek!

Hope it's recovered soon.

Oh wow that really sucks to hear. I think it is time to either install a lojack in the bike (if possible ) or to take the bike inside the house.

Rest of my Stereo is being installed tomorrow.
Also, ordered a VMAX ported throttle body, and Goodridge stainless brake lines to go with the install of my Brembo's when they get here.
Cant wait!

Installed my ported TB From JDP Motorsports today. Not sure yet if it was worth the money. The throttle response from 2nd-3rd-4th seems better, but thats about all I can tell.

Also, picked up the car from the audio shop. Had Hertz Hi Energy 165XL's installed in the doors, Hertz Hi Energy 6.5 components put in place of the 6x9's, a Hertz HDP5 5 channel amp, and a Hertz Hi Energy 10" sub installed in the trunk.

Down side, i think there is an issue with the amp-everything shut off on me today, and would not power back on. Taking it back in to have the shop look at it otmorrow.

After running around for a few days on the ported TB, definitely can feel a difference! Increased throttle response, and from 2K+, it takes off with a lot less input.

Fixed the amp issue...ended up being a broken remote wire.

Still waiting on my Brembo brakes. Guy who I bought them from is unresponsive...so may be filing a paypal claim :-/

Couple Updates.
Rear Brembo's showed up, need to turn/replace the rotors, going to paint them red
Fronts will be here Tuesday



Picked up a 2nd set of wheels, so I can do 20x8 all around for the winter, and 20x9 for the summer.

General AS03's were put on for the winter weather


And...here is a picture of the sub box that was built for me.

Got my Brembo's and stainless lines on this weekend. Also working on a dyno tune at the moment.

Pictures !










Boy oh boy do these suckers stop. Pedal is not as "firm" as it ws with the V6 brakes, but changing out the master cylinder to the SS one will correct that.
And, bought a new winter beater/daily





So the Camaro is going to go up for the winter most likely.

Not really an update on hte car...but it went in today to have a door ding pulled, the passenger seat bracket replaced, and an oil change.

Also ordered up all of my detailing gear so I can start keeping her nice and clean.
Made a very large order with Adams Polish, which included all the paint care products I needed and a buffer/polisher. Cant wait for Friday!

..Love all my Adam's products. I have done paint correction recently using Adam's prodcuts. Camaro looks better than the day I picked it up 5 years and 81K miles ago.

Love what this stuff does for my finish.
