Pretty car! Just needs a black billet grille on the cheap...or spend big monies and get the slp grille. Either way it will look real good.

Thanks guys! I'll do something with the calipers and grill for sure!

I put on the adj torque arm and brace that goes with it. I had to hack off the SLP loudmouth since it was in the way. Had to run open headers for a little bit until I was able to get a custom exhaust made. Decided to go with the dynomax bullets on summit so they got here the next day Went to a shop right around the corner and had an exhaust made. I'm extremely happen with how it turned out and it sounds amazing..it's a lot deeper and best of all no rasp

Thanks a lot guys

Someone decided to dent my hood so i'm going to get that fixed. I plan on going with a VFN hood now, not sure if i'm going to get the 3" SS hood or the sunoco hood. Also going to do a 100 shot here pretty soon as well.

A couple months later I bought some Texas speed headers and their y pipe and had that put in. I felt the difference with this for sure.



Now the mod bug has taken me over at this point and I need more power lol so I decided to do a H/C setup. I chose the 228r cam since I wanted something that would give me decent MPGs I suppose and just ported/milled my 241s. Here's another thread for that..

https://ls1tech.com/forums/generatio...228r-241s.html

That was in January and the only thing i did before June was a tick adj master cylinder when June came around I decided I needed to do my suspension. Ended up ordering weld in subframe connectors, on car adjustable lower control arms, weld in relocation brackets for them, adjustable pan hard bar, driveshaft safety loop, adjustable torque arm, QA1 front and rear adjustable shocks with a 300lb spring on the front and lastly BMR springs on the back. It's been about a month since I received all the parts and i've been putting them on here and there. Just put the coils, springs, and shocks on last week and boy the difference is amazing. Oh yeah and I got some torq thrust Ms with 275/315 555Rs in the back now. She looks a lot difference now!













dude i love your car! its so unique! and your updating everyone on your build is even better....question for you though on one pic the trunk you have a black deck where the camaro lettering is, did you do that yourself? or how did you do it?

Thanks for the kind words Ethan. Just prepped it and sprayed it with some bumper coating then finished it off with a couple layers of clear. This was all done with a rattle can btw. It's really easy to do

You should go for it and see how it turns out. Either way the torq thrust wheels are a win

I ended up ordering a VFN Sunoco hood and should have it on and painted next week or the following week..can't wait

Oh and I got a new sweet plate lol
