I picked up a two owner 2002 Z28 A4 car from a 83 year old man. He had just done all of the performance upgrades and rebuilds on it, when he wife said he needed to stop hot rodding. So alas I got myself an absolute time capsule and rocket lol. It has 70k miles on it right now. I did a two step paint correction on it and then I ceramic coated it with Koch Chemie C0.02. Ill get better pictures once the coating cures in a another day or so. What do you think?

I had a '02 Pontiac Firechicken with a similar set up. I learned the hard way never buy a V-6 car and convert it to a V-8. Hence forth Firechicken. Fun car to say the least. Fortunately a feller had a '01 Dodge Ram 2500 Cummins 12V wanted my car more than I did. When I finished that B-12V Cummins. I raced him, and beat his a$$ so bad even drifting across the finishline. That Cummins started a love affair with Ram trucks since.

408 on the stroker and yes its pretty slow unless you launch it lol. The gears do help. Its only 3200 at 90 so I can live with that.

Its not a daily. I literally have had it out once since Saturday. I am about to take it to my tuner to have him look at the tune.

Here is some in the garage finished photos. I will take some more when I head to the tuner in a little bit. I have new headlights on the way, a new grill, and I am going to replace the dash pad this weekend. Typical GM F body dash it cracked.

Yeah I'm a little under geared for it in my truck. Planning to swap the 3.90s for 4.30s later this year.

Looks great after the detail! Now it needs an altitude adjustment

Ive got a billet black grill coming until I can find a SLP one. I can't believe how expensive used Berger rear panels are... I am eventually going to run big and littles. I want bogarts, but I will probably end up with some Pro stars that I will have powder coated like I did on my last Z.

Did it come with that pin stripe from the factory?

Yes and I am up in the air on if I want to keep it or not. Im leaning towards yes since it was part of the original paint set up.
