bitch didn't take long to disappoint. luckily, water pump doesn't cost nearly as much as the n54 water pump did. lol

had purchased a ls2 pump instead of the ls1 pump bolted up obviously, then my supercharger bracket wouldn't fit, had to send it back and order ls1 pump. finally got everything back together after 3 weeks (2 jobs, 2 kids, and a wife doesn't leave much spare time to wrench)


put the car back together, new water pump, new thermostat, new belt, fixed boost leak that i didn't know i had, new license plate lights, new reverse lights, and my plate finally came in "CHRGD C5"

yes, unfortunately, i have a small spot of clear coat peeling directly under the trim. so pulling it off may damage more clear, and or at least make that spot noticeable. right now, you can't even notice it unless looking, it's dead center in the middle of my driver door.

When are you going to upgrade the rear spoiler? Something like this...

Ignore the tailpipes though, they're kinda ugly.

work has commenced on the ole turd. unfortunately i have ZERO time to do the work, so i outsourced it to a very good friend of mine. this will be the first time i've ever paid anyone to work on any of my cars, but he is giving me a good price and i trust him very well. on top of the cam/converter/trans cooler, he talked me into buying a badass fuel system he had laying around and ditching my boost-a-pump.

should be completed in a week or so, then have to arrange time for the tuner. hoping to have it back in my possession on a couple of weeks.

tearing apart for the cam install:

That is awesome you picked up a fuel system as well. 700whp here you come.
with meth or e85 700 is very achievable, but im still running on stock trans and bottom end. lol. i would need larger injectors for e85 and i'd prefer a way to swap tunes, so that's probably out of the question. but there is a good chance ill order a meth setup at some point in the year, but not at this moment.
