Trish's Z06 Performance & Handling Make Over

        Trish was referred to us by one of our previous customers.  She came to us with a newly purchased Black 2008 Z06 and some great ideas for her Z06.  First on the list was the tires.  The factory Goodyear F1 Supercar tire is really nobodies favorite so Trish decided to upgrade to the new Goodyear F1 Supercar G2.  The G2 is leaps and bounds better than the regular F1 tire, and there was no way we were putting something sub-par on Trish's newly black powder coated wheels.  Now with some new shoes and a mean new look, thanks to the black wheels, it was time to put the rubber to the road and make it stick!!  The suspension  on the factory Z06 is good but the addition of Pfadts new featherlight coil overs and heavy rate sway bars take it to a whole new world of ride, performance and control.  Now we are at the "Go" side of the build.  Trish wanted a great performing and sounding car.  The choice was easy a set of Kooks 1.875" long tube stainless headers, Kooks catted 3" x-pipe and a Borla muffler section.  On the inlet side of things a Halltech Killer Bee was added with the "Beehive" surround to keep the inlet temps down.   Some computer tuning and Trish is off to tear up the road course, street, and any unsuspecting person that comes accross her path.
