    Cool 2002 Z28 Som


    I bought my Z28 last March and love it. The SOM is a real head turner -- lots of positive feedback. Have done some minor mods: SLP lid, K&n filter, Magnaflowmuffler, tower strut brace, billet grill.

    My performance mods will remain modest at the moment. Main purpose of this Z28 is showin' and crusin' not draggin'. I won best top 25 at a Year One Bash in Braselton Georgia. My Z28 also serves as daily driver (10-12 K /year). Having said that, I did swap out stock muffler for a Magnaflow that sounds (and hopefully runs) a lot better. The Edelbrock tower strut brace is a three-point set up and I am sure I must be more rigid in turns. The billet grill in polished aluminium looks great and according to my mechanic allows for a little better air flow than that hunk of stock black plactic.

    I have done some appearance mods as well: polished stainless steel letters for rear deck; mirror covers; rebuilt seats to included increased foam padding and lateral support (great improvement over standard crappy seats in my view); real rosewood dash kit; Z28 front carpets in very dark grey with red lettering; painted calipers gloss red; rear mud guards with Z28. That's about it.

    In town, I get 19-22 MPG and on road trips I get 24-30 (once!!!). I have a A-4, 2.73 gearing so it is a highway cruiser set up for sure. I have not run it so have no ET's and such. Have no idea what flywheel or rear wheel HP numbers are either.

    Nice chatting with you guys, especially SOM dudes.
