Upgrading or simply replacing?

Began ordering some things for my 2001 Z06 that i get to pick up / purchase this thursday.

Order a complete set of GM repair manuals
Ordered a Varram Intake (the whole enchilada)
Ordered jacking/lifting pucks for the frame
Orderered a C5-R shift ****
Ordered a Billit antenna
PIAA white light bulbs

The car has 11,700 miles on it, so I also researched a complete fluid change, hoses and belts. Even though it has low miles, the age of the belt, brake fluid, clutch fluid, antifreeze etc. etc. concernes me. So for piece of mind I'm doing it all.

Can't wait til thursday!

Well lets see I took my car to Speed Techs in Fort Worth. (They did an awsome job). Had a Varaam installed. New Plugs and wires had the coolant burped corrcetley. Thanks Fenton Chevorlet in Ardmore I told you is was not done right. After that put it on the dyno. It was Sweeeeeeeeeeeeet. The Tuner was awsome did a good job and explained everything he was doing and why. So the Z06 runs even faster than a r_ped Ape. Thanks Speed Techs for the service you provide. They had some sick cars in their show room.

How'd the race turn out? Hmmm..did the mirror leak out any of the electrochromatic ooze?
