Hi, I'm Dawn. I've been the proud owner of a 2006 Civic Si for over a year now. I love the car to death. I've spent way too much money modifying the car to be left with a car that looks good, but still doesn't have the power I want. I wasn't planning on getting rid of it any time soon until I saw the Camaro Concept in motion. I knew I had to have it. I've always wanted a Camaro but I couldn't afford it when I was younger. Now that I'm older, married and have good insurance, I can finally have a car with HP and torque. :D Yay! I can not wait until the new Camaro is in production. I plan on getting a 2010 model to beware of any bugs. In the meantime I can save up some $ for it and enjoy my Honda a little more.

One of my hobbies is photographing cars. I have about a billion pictures of the SI, I'm going to go nuts with the camera when I get the Camaro.







And as requested by Sluuug:

Thanks. I believe in eye catching color (stock preferably) and simple mods. Simplicity is key. No big wings for me.

Thanks, USA1 and Octane. This picture taking issue of mine has been so bad over the year that I have 2 digital cameras (one point and shoot, one DSLR) and I bought a Mac to edit the pics on. It's awful.

Thanks. Well, I haven't had it dyno'd since I had the header installed. I'll get that done in september.

My first dyno was April '06 on a dyno jet. My only mod at the time was an AEM CAI. My max power was 179.9 hp and 137.9 lb-ft. My second dyno was September '06 on a different dynojet. Max power was 184.5hp and the only good torque reading they could get was 134.5 lb-ft. My only mods on that dyno were an Injen CAI and a GReddy Evo II cat back.

My next dyno I'm going to go back to 17" wheels. My mods on the car right now are Injen CAI, Hondata Reflash, SSR race header, GReddy EVO 2 catback. Well see. Similar mods on other dynos have been around 195-199 hp and 140-145 lb-ft. Torqueless wonders that they are. ;)

I love engine bay pix, no matter what the car...............Not sure why, maybe it's because there's so much to look at.

Thanks. Yes, Luwinkle, there's an engine in there. I had to protect the squirrels from the elements. They're in their little ball under the silver cover. Lol. :D It's funny, when I get the Camaro, I'll have 3 times as much engine.
