    New Guy on Central Coast

    Post by Yonash on Mon Mar 14, 2011 1:49 am

    Hey all. So I met Will at a Team Botak BBQ over the weekend, we talked a bit, and he told me about this site. Why Dom has never directed me over here, I'm not sure haha. So anyways, My name is Chris, I am co-admin at lnfperformance.com, and I've owned my 2008 HHR SS for just over 3 years now, purchased new in 2/08. It's a black 5-spd with LSD, and just about all the options, just no roof rack or sunroof. I have a decent list of mods, but nothing extraordinary.

    GMPP Stage 1 tune
    ADM Performance 3" catback w/ Magnaflow muffler (final prototype unit)
    TTR rear sway bar
    Goldline lowering springs (painted silver)
    TWM Performance billet short throw shifter
    rear wiper delete
    3000K HID fog lights
    TCE Plus 1 front big brake kit (13" 2-piece rotors, black Wilwood DP6 calipers)
    IPCW LED tail lights
    bowties painted silver
    custom waterfall panel with 2 gauge mounting locations
    and my most recent mod, painted the stock wheels Subaru Sedona Red Pearl

    There's still a lot left I'd like to do with it, but it'll have to wait, as I'm leaving for Basic Training for the Air Force in about 2 months, and I have a lot of work to get done on my other big project, my 1970 Chevy C/20 longbed. Anyway, here's some pictures of the HHR! I need to get her cleaned up and do a good photo shoot with the wheels painted now, she's filthy in these pics, but I'll give you what I've got for now haha.

    Thanks for the welcome guys. I'll be active duty. And Joey, I love my brakes haha. I actually went out to Tucson for a friend's wedding back in August '08, and on our way home we stopped in Phoenix at Todd's shop (TCE), hung out for a few hours, he took some measurements, and I got a discount on the prototype kit, first setup on an HHR SS.
