Default New car and engine cover painting

Picked it up last week. Love the car. Perfect. And under 6000 miles. Yep. 6,000!

2012 2SS

Wanted to make it a little mine. So, I decided to add a cold air intake and do a little painting on the engine cover.

Next on the list is a strut tower brace. Later down the road a shot of NOS or supercharger I hope

Added something to tighten it up just a bit.

Had it about a month and a half now. Put some high flow cats on it and Pypes cat back exhaust when I first got it. Got to get some headers now. But am torn between Kooks or Speed Engineering. Will figure it out. but here is a warm start with the Pypes

Thanks. YouTube normally compresses the sound and makes it weak. I like it through the headphones also

Picked me up an adapter for the DRLs to stay on when I have the headlights on also. Going to be ordering me a turn light sequencer before long
