Completely agree. 100%. I got smoked by a 4 series BMW. That tells you something. If Maserati would put a 600 hp motor in there, wow. But, you can't deny it's looks. I break necks every time I'm in it.

Congrats on the purchase! I'm in the same position your in. However a Bentley or Super Snake aren't my options. Just a GTR, Hellcat (again) or a ZL1 or ZL1/1LE. I do miss being an active member and the Camaro Fest. I'm torn.

I'm itching over here. They are on their way now with my car. haha. Hurry up already.
Only the Transmission is locked and I would not let them touch that.

It's 4 credits for HP Tuners so 200 and it's VIN specific on these cars meaning they can't purchase the entire model year.

There's no reason to touch this trans (it's solid as is) which is $150 to unlock and then additional credits to tune.

Well, the thing is. Nobody would deal. For some reason Nissan treats the GTR like Gold. The GTR was my first choice. I wanted another one, but they wouldn't budge. I was looking at the Nismo btw. The higher end makers wouldn't deal either. Same thing on the Super Snake. I was willing to order one, but it came out to around $110k and when I slept on it, I was like, hell no. Not for a Mustang. So, I just came back home to the Camaro family. I had a '14 Zl1 years ago. Traded it in on a GTR, then traded that in on the Z06. My Vet has a sick Bentley and I was like, I've never owned one of those, but with the new one coming out, I just decided to wait a year or two more before I move up. The Maserati is fine for now. Slow as hell tho. haha

I'm going to do a few errands today, so I'll get a bit more seat time. See how this car handles.

Noted. Thanks!! And Joe confirmed that with my mods, there is prob no reason to send out the ECU anyways. I'm not doing a full internal build at this time anyways. Just FBO and a tune. And some lighting upgrades.

Was just told by Phastek that it will for sure need to be sent out to HP. No way around it.

For the '18s. Oh well, whats another 3 day wait.

And I was going to go with Stainless Works exhaust, but they said even to them, had too much drone, so Corsa it is.

why wouldnt you keep the factory exhaust and just do headers? Also, there is ZERO reason to send the TCU out, you have to pull the trans apart to get it out.

I thought about doing that too. I'm still getting quotes from LMR. They are recommending headers also. But, I do have a budget of around $5k tops so. Trying to get the most out of it.

I know for sure I'm doing the RotoFab Intake, Metco Pulleys, tune, and exhaust. That pretty much eats up the $5k. I'm adding some Diode lighting so that eats up about $500 of the budget so.

I'm not building a Tx2K street machine. I have the Z06 for that. haha. Just want a bit more oooomph.
