Default New ride/project (I really need to finish one)



This was when my buddy bought it. It needs some TLC right now. Mostly just paint and finish some mods up. She'* got a Stage 2 Clutch, B&M Short Throw, LS Coils (no more Optispark POS), 160# injectors, Comp Cams Xtreme Energy Hydraulic cam (Lift: 266/276 Duration:.500/.510) and lifters, LS2 push rods and valve springs, FCAI, SLP TB, OBD2 Computer and wiring, LT Headers, Full SLP Loudmouth 2 Exhaust, and a semi built GM Rear end. 64K Original Miles. Gave $2800 for her and every panel is straight and the only thing wrong with the motor is the rear main seal went out.

its got all the best mods done already. cant believe you got it for 2800. just the slp exhaust was probably half that. i would have to get rid of stupid bug eyes though, camaros are one car the stock head light look the best of any modded ones i have seen.

He needed the money and made me a deal because he knew I wanted the car. She does have a few problems like a broken starter and I have to replace the rear main seal (I guess that'* common on lt1s).

I think they make it look meaner. I'm getting rid of that CF hood when I do my cheap paint job. The gaps are horrible on it.

I like the hood. Most aftermarket ones are bad out of the mold, they expect you to mess with it yourself

I'll have to get a better, more recent picture of the car after I get the rear main done. The gap is grand canyonish between the hood and the header panel/bumper. We've tried closing it, but it'* not going to move. I'm thinking that it'* going back to the Z hood when it goes for paint and a tune in 2 weeks. It'* a sweet looking hood, but it'* gonna get sold lol.

Not entirely sure. I haven't gotten to dig that deep. I will say she feels faster with this cam and N/A than the Paxton NOVi that was in it the last time I drove her.
