Just put the headers on and got a tune on the C6. My big project has been on my C4 with a new stroker engine. I did mention how affordable a new Eforce supercharger would be for the C6 to the wifey. But due to budget deficits that project has been vetoed.

For a minute I was going to get the 50 states legal E-Force blower for my '08 coupe and play with that, but I decided I wanted another car rather than a front heavy tire roasting monster that wasn't going to be as good at HPDE days or long trips anymore.

I have a C4 again and that keeps me and the tool box pretty busy.

Just put a Elite Engineering tunnel plate on. Should have my Bilstein shocks in a month.

Nice new parts install. Are you pulling decent power without the supercharger?

Sweet. We just bought our Z and installed LED's in the interior and tinted the windows.

Are the shocks a great upgrade for road courses? Don't you need a lift to put those on?

I love headers, I think they do a lot for a performance car. The stock LS2 Vette has decent power from the showroom IMO. But it's always fun making more.

We did the LED interior last year. I think this looks bad ass in Red. The pics look too yellow though. In reality is a deep red.

Headers next year. I've overextended my race fund for this year. at least I've paid for a couple of tracks already.

We would like to do the full exhaust from the headers to the mufflers,but we might have to hold off for a bit.

Looks sweet! What color os your vette?
