    I can't lie though.. the E92 was pretty boring.

    i have a G55 Kompressor runs 12.90's @ 105 bone stock. lol.

    and the Camaro. Yeah.. the Camaro is $#@!ing insane. I don't think i could ever get rid of that. I should rock a 60-130 time in that thing.. but i don't have a Vbox. I am curious as to what it would run. 800rwhp on the wastegates, 1100 hp for low boost pump gas.. and 1300 hp high boost with some 110.

    Basically it is a fully restored shell (by me)
    The subframe is SpeedTech front with some coilovers big sway bar, rack in pinion, tubular upper and lower control arms, 6 piston Willwoods
    rear suspension is a Detroit Speed 4 link, mini tubbed 335 Nitto NT05's, 33 spline Strange Axles, 10 bolt with Detroit Tru Trac, 3.50's
    Transmission is a Son of Trazilla 6 Speed, RAM 10.5 R twin disc clutch,
    Motor is LQ9 408ci inside has some real good parts..lol.. the heads are Dart Pro 1's big ass injectors controlled with Fast XFI, Eagle crank, Comp Cam, my own turbo kit built by my dude at All Speed, custom headers, intercooler,ect. Bullseye Twins... 66mill turbo's with a custom exhaust housing. $#@!ers spool quick...real quick. Each turbo is good for about 750 rwhp.

    I think I'm going to move this to its own thread as it deserves it, amazing. That rear shot is just money.

    I love mini-tubbed classic cars.

    Dude... sick..... just sick.....


    When I dream of a built Camaro it's not far off from what you have created.

    Amazing car man, thanks for sharing!

    Any vids?

    I want one. The thing is, how much does it cost to build one?

    couple random build photo's.....We also flared out the fender line front and back. Just pulled the stock line out just over an inch. I think it made the car.
    Even my daughter helped me fab up some brackets and all that!!!lol

    Since i didn't pay for labor...(me and 3 other guys did EVERYTHING) I even bought the sewing machine for the interior... i did all the cutting welding, grindidng..ect. My other dude did the mechanical stuff.
    The parts at my cost came out to be about 90k. I also got wheels free, tires free, interior pieces free(door panels, dash, headliner, tail lights) I got half my engine $#@! at the manufactures cost from Comp, a few other things that saved me about 30k. So in parts there is roughly 100k+. IF i had to pay for labor.. there is about 1000 hrs - 1200 hrs involved. So if the customer wanted one from scratch... this car would cost 225-250k to build. If you minus all the body mods.. you can catch a good one from a company like Best of Show for around 160-180k. If you want one built from Detroit Speed.. your looking at 200k for a nice driver with nothing crazy under the hood and no body mods.

    Click here to enlargeMy wiring was horrible when i was first finished... but i had to get it done for Sema... so once i got it back... i sent it up to the best and most anal dude on the planet. It was expensive... and he was going through some $#@!... but the job he did was un real. I spent a couple days up there to learn the correct way to wire and all that. Discovery Automotive... aka Shadowman. Check this link to see the before and after. Its insane.
    I know how some of you feel about dude... but check out the time he spent on this $#@!!!!

    Epic car man. Be safe, it looks like a lot of fun.

    Do those 335s hook up? They have a short wall, what do you run at the drag strip? Slicks?
    Some people live long, meaningful lives.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    I'm not racist, I hate everybody equally; especially fat people.

    Surprisingly once they are pretty warmed up.... they hook extremely well. 1st and second can be pedaled out with a good amount of power hitting the ground. 3rd is real nice. Only if the tires are cold will it spin. But the 4 link keeps it virtually straight.

    Never took it to the drag strip.... but she was heavily street raced in Mi for over a year.
