    Default 2007 GXP- Nitrous, CTS-V Brakes, Splitter, TSW's, etc. etc.

    I haven't really posted since about April, and I've done quite a few things to my car.
    Went to the W-body meet, and won the "best brakes" award, and overall had a great time.

    The splitter was installed on my freshly painted bumper, and it looked great. This picture is after I got 40% tint on the windshield. It set the car off well:



    I got my retrofits in the mail from Dylan, and they are sick:



    Soon after that, I got my nitrous kit in the mail. I went all out, Dual line purge kit, Window switch, bottle heater, etc:



    Vector Motorsports did the install and tuning on my car. They also wired up my gauges, because I'm not too experienced with electronics. (They made it plug and play so I can remove this pod with all the gauges. It has a quick disconnect in case I want to sell it. ) They took a little while, but did a great job.








    I made this custom plate in my console. (I also had my shifter black anodized; don't know if I posted that earlier...



    Here are a few pictures from the meet:










    The cutout switch that came with my DMH cutout SUCKED, so I bought a $30 switch from grainger, re-wired it, and poped a hole in my console and re-ran my wires from the power seats. Looks so clean:





    Next came the TSW's. I dropped ~7lbs per corner over the GT500 wheels.
    The look is growing on me, and my offset is +45 instead of 30, so they are tucked a little more. I have 15mm spacers in the mail as we speak.



    I wrapped the front area of my engine compartment in flat black. It was really beat up and the paint was horrible:




    Vector had a track rental, so here's a pic from July 17th at Milan:




    Last but not least, I mounted my fire extinguisher:






    I'm sure I'm missing some things. Up next, I'm going to mount my 15mm wheel spacers so I can get them flush again, and then I'm putting 2.5" drop springs on the front to give it some rake...

    In the fall its going to the track again with some slicks to see what I can run with traction and cooler weather.

    Holy big pics. I don't know how to re-size and this post took me an eternity to make. Any quick tips to get these pics to a decent size?

    Thanks, I tried to take my time with it. You don't really notice all the detail until you have a chance to look it over pretty good.

    Also, Dylan if you see this.... I put my stock headlights in when I went to the track. I was having issues with the HID kit I had, but I bought one from TRS. All better now : )

    It's a 100 shot for now. I sprayed it at the track, and it slipped and slidded everywhere.
    It has a ton left in it. I'm only spraying above 3,400 rpms, and I'm not spraying through shifts. It I sprayed it balls out, it would be faster, but I would break **** really quick.

    Next spring I'll bump it to a 175 and go for broke.

    I do too, trust me. But if you have ever driven a car that has dumped ~28lbs of unsprung weight, you'll never go back. It's a game changer.

    in 2 weeks I'll have the lower springs on, and my spacers will poke the wheels and make them flush. I think it will do wonders. If not, I'll paint them gloss black over the winter.
