Was excited got some time to work on the V tonight. Installed some Eibach Springs and changed my oil. :) The only kit Eibach has for our cars is the Pro kit that I know of. Said it was a .75 front and 1.5 rear. The front dropped more then I thought it would which is fine with me.

I had the windows tinted last week plan to black out the chrome around the windows. Think I will leave the resat of the car Chrome.

Hope to have the car on the dyno tomorrow and play with the tune on a bone stock car and see what I can do:)

Nice open road shot. What part of Washington was this?

Keep us posted on the dyno tuning and results. Curious what the cts-v can do on stock boost.

What are you using for blacking out the trim, Trimbrite?

Yes will have results today on the dyno i hope.

Not sure what I am going to use on the trim yet. Have not heard of Trimbrite yet. Still in the debate if I want a paint shop to color match gloss or just go kinda of flat which would match the area between the doors. If i got flat I guess I would just use normal rattle can on the trim.

The long road shot was in Death Valley on our road trip home from AZ on our way out on the CA side.

I don't know about spray painting the trim. There is no way it will stick to chrome for the long time. Go with the tape like everyone else does or plexi-dip it. Both methods are reversible and very durable.

I have the trimbrite tape:
