the whole mission statement of this car is to mod it heavily, but no mod will be overwhelming and be apparent to the normal public as a "mod" - i.e juvenile - ricer...

What I do to my car is not the norm, and certainly I am not pushing for anyone else to do it. But it's been thought out, and experts consulted. I post here to just show what is possible. No need for you to post your opin, but if you have questions, please ask...

only Vette enthusiasts will be able to pick out what's a year, the car has gone thru many permutations...and will continue.

Nice work! I'm going to steal some of these ideas whenever I finally get my C7. Funny in the pictures it almost looks like you have shag carpet mats. ;)
Ok, so I finally finished all that I'm gonna do in the engine bay with Don's RPI stuff - the first pic is the gloss plenum (not interested in more CF) and it looks "serious", IMO...LOL

The second is adding the really glossy rails done in the color of my car with red accents...a HUGE diff from the stock ones above...

Both of these alcohol wiped and then treated with Dodo "tropical red mist" wipe on seal - made for hi temps...

I like it, don't like how the stock engine looks. Will do the same but most likely in the color of my car for example I'll do red for my red C7, etc.
