That's quite the list for Santa - you must have been good this year!
Lip+diffuser+wheel+drop will really transform the car. Also curious how much induction sound you get from the new plenum.

Yeah, I'm looking forward to the plenum. I've been really enjoying the exhaust sound at all rpms. BTW, I did a sound proofing in trunk and part of convertible with Hushmat + put some sound dampening cloths, and it make a noticeable difference toning down the drone at low rpms. Now, it's mostly sweet tone to my ears except when the top is down. Then, it's loudness all round me. LOL

Finally, pulled the trigger on a set of 18" staggered Apex EC7s in satin black and Michelins on black friday sale. Hopefully, they will come in a reasonable time. Now looking for drop springs.

Would anyone be interested in this?

I just finished my ESS G1 supercharger on Wednesday and due to the taller ESS plenum I cannot reinstall this bar. It is a great replacement for the factory braces and actually adds additional tension by connecting the two side braces. I did notice a difference with it and the looks are an added bonus.

Let me know. Would love to sell local to avoid the shipping headaches.

Definitely something to be thankful for!

How wicked does the supercharger look and when will it be tuned and ready to whine?

The sc is installed and ready. Tuned and all. Just waiting on a dang filter to plug the open intake port for the recirculating valve. Ordered it from Amazon but they messed up and didn't arrive today. Got a refund but I'm scrambling to find something local to plug the port.

S/C install pic

Here is a pic of the finished product. It's actually a pretty easy install. Started Saturday night, skipped Sunday. Did some work Monday and Tuesday night after work, then finished Wednesday morning. All in all probably 8 or 10 hours to install. One of the easiest DIY so far. Slow downs were related to weak instructions from ESS. Sintax errors on English text, out of order steps and lack of detail. A few missing parts in kit but I keep a lot of stuff in my pseudo shop garage so wasn't any trouble.

I'd be interested if it will fit with the Haimus plenum on.

Sweet! Can you swing by today or tomorrow? I can install in about an hour or less.

I'll text you here in a bit.

Thanks for the suggestion! I think Costco will refund installation fee if I take the tires only. I'll call AEP and see what availability they have. Also, just learned the Tire Rack has an in-home service at $25 per tire with couple of days availability. Hopefully, either two options will be better than two weeks out wait time.

I used tire rack at home installation for the camaro and they do a good job but it's not a touchless system. You'll have some marks/slight indentations on the inside of the barrel when done.

Anthony has a touchless system at AEP. May be the only one in stl too it at least one of the few.
