Default after 6 years in the garage. my car is finally out! pics, soundclip! update page2!

i bougth my car back in 2006, with 31k on the clock, and adult owned and driven, it was a realy tigth and unmolested example. it was one of the most plain looking camaros i've seen, and commonly mistaken as a 6cyl car. it was quiet,plain lookin,had a towing bar (hitch). and the "wonderfull" gray cloth interior topped of the 6cyl look,

after i purchased it i could drive it for about 3 weeks, and the motor spun a bearing. i orginally planned to fix the motor and do some nice modifications to it, and be ready for the summer og 07,

that did not happen.. the car ended up as my hobby, and lasth night, almost 6 years later, i drove it out pf the workshop, i have driven it some very few miles for some testing here and there after some installations and such, but until last night i had never driven the car fully functional, with all of the modification working,

and what a diffirent.. its just not in any way the same car i started on in 2006. i built a brand new H/C/I motor, ls7 clutch. nitrous lt's. all of the bolt ons and free modds, fully built suspension, sfc's
the car was repainted in a custom black color, and then it had some really decent(and madly expensive) clear code,
the bottom was also painted, in satin black.and everything that was not new was sandblasted and painted did
the wheel arches in satin black also. whe spent alot of time trying to sand out the wafes in the plastic that the doors and fenders are made of to try to get it mirror straigth and realy show off that nice paint work,

the interior is stll under construction, but i installed viper/srt4 seats. and did the rear seat delete, put the armor bord under the ashtray lid, some dials here and there, and i am swapping all the interior plastics out for a dark grey ones, along with T/A door panels to get it all in just one color inside,

i cant even guess how many times i have spent on this car. its not just the actual modds that can go in the signurate picture, i worked hour after hour on something in this car that did not make it faster og handle better at all, relocatin things, sandblasting things from the undercarrige, and so on.

the first test drive was just awesome.. finally driving error code free, but still on wrong gas and a mail order map i could not belive how strongly this motor pulls.. i have no traction at all untill 3rd gear. and its sounds just awesome.


took some pictures today,









and here is a soundclip, acceleration

thank you guys.

i guess it will surprice most in here, but i have the patriot stageII ls6's, 59cc chambers, 226cam

when i bougth those heads they where getting great rewiev's, but for some reason most started talking realy bad about them, and was dead worryed that this motor would not performe anything like i hoped for.

but the heads where really well made , good flow rate. and now when the car is driving it really looks good, the motors feels and sounds just wicked, it pulls hard down low and the hp's really go up in the 4500-7000rpm. i am so surprised how this motor came out, today you dont think a little 346cid is that cool anymore, but they really do scream man
