cars been done for a few weeks, but still need to upgrade the fuel system.

Basic mod list
-CNC ported LSA heads with btr springs, arp head bolts and ls9 head gaskets
- rcr PB blower cam 219/237 ...
-id850 injectors
-cx racing Heat exchanger, roush hx coolant tank in the pocket of the cabin filter area
-Zl1 lid with 12 an outlets and reinforced milled brick
-Air raid 5" intake with ls7 card maf
-Ported TB
-Lsa blower with slightly ported snout and 2.5" pulley
-kooks 1 7/8 headers
- custom self made ( not the prettiest ) 3" exhaust with two vibrant bullet resonators up front, two vibrant ultra quiets out back with a j-pipe. (Maybe adding a mid muffler soon cause its loud)
-Lsa coil packs and valve covers
-mishimoto catch can with an fittings

-Stock ss springs
-ZL1 / ctsv- converter with Camaro pan, also removed the thermostat from the factory trans cooler for more flow.
-3.27 Camaro diff
-2010 Camaro brembos all around using powerstop rotors from a 2016 ss sedan

at 88k both engine mounts and the trans mount needed to be replaced. Good idea to do them if your installing headers or doing exhaust work

Hp tuners Tuned by me

Car rolls out pretty good but tune is very soft due to lack of fuel, that upgrade will be happening in the next few weeks.

David,
Your car is looking awesome. Hope tuning is going well for you.

Could you give more info on the Welds for both front and back (model and offset) and the what tires you are running (Make, model, size)?

Would the stock coil packs/valve covers not work with the blower?

Are you just going to do the boost a pump/pump controller re-flash?

Flex fuel? Please tell me flex fuel!!

the coils need to move , either by using the LSA/9 valve covers , or moving them , they sit up to close to the sc and fuel rails

Maybe Dave will chime in but he has since sold this car.

I believe he started with a reflashed fuel computer, then a DSX supplementary pump, then ended up with a full FORE return fuel system.

He and I exchanged some messages on dealing with Flex fuel. His fuel system retained the Flex sensor and I'm sure he got some of the tables updated before selling it.
