to rip out the direct injection and put in a double barreled carburetor.


.... ahhh just messing with everyone.
I'm waiting to see my car first and then decide what if anything interior or exterior- after I get to see what GM and Tadge settled on.

Probably just Lloyds Mats and ClearBra. There's really nothing else the car needs IMO.

I already bought my 1st mod, an ESCORT RADAR DETECTOR. I plan on taking it with me and hooking it up before I pull out of the dealers lot.

I moved up to 3400 even with a CF roof! Any leads on where to get the CAGS Defeat?
Been debating what wax to use. What is your choice?

CAGS inoperable. I see where people are considering lowering the suspension, has anyone measured the actual ride height? I saw one post where the front air dam is already down as to scrape at the smallest dip in the road, let alone driveway entrances.

Clear bra and either build or buy a harness bar and find some way to modify my Carvaggio race seats to accept the C7 electrical plug.

BTW- Does anyone know if the current TPMS sensors are the same as 2010 up C6 ?

*performance floor mats

Glad I didn't get red calipers. How embarrassing to have us pass each other in SoCal with the same looking car. Hopefully you did the carbon flash mirrors and spoiler.
