My first car too man! Alright well suspension and brakes dont have to be done but should be done down the road. Tranny is a must and I believe axels. The only thing I have to figure out is the ECM. Once I find how much that will cost me im set!
But take it in
A TR6060 is about 1500
LS3 is about 3-4k
Exhaust is about 750
Brembos are $400(later project)
Suspension is 1k (later project)
Most important part is having a hook up in a shop to do the labour.
Im getting everything but the exhaust used so theyre pretty cheap to find. heck some meber will even trade brembos for stock v6 ones
you wanna know the worst part? I couldve gotten a used C6 with 20k on it for 35k which is cheaper then what I paid for my 6. Honestly, if this car didnt mean so much to me, I wouldve upgraded to an SS by now for sure. But shes my pride and joy and I always had the intentions of dropping an 8 in her one day, just might be doing it over this winter as opposed to 10 years down the line lol
lmao yeah I saw your sig and was like did he upgrade?! Honestly man, after looking at all the costs for turbos or superchargers, it literally adds up to about the same costs to get an LS3, and tr6060. So far I set my mind on doing an engine transplant, unless some crazyy sick option comes out for us. 400rwhp is not enough for me to stay with the 6, 500rwhp and ill be happy
That sucks man. Hope you find one you like eventually. Its been pretty fun so far with the club I'm in. You actually think the classes are fun? Thats the opposite of what I would have expected lol. But thanks man.. Its going about as good as it could go I guess. Haven't had any problems with insurance or anything, they're even covering any of my aftermarket stuff that got damaged too. I'm going down to sign the papers so they can actually start working on it tomorrow. I've got a couple more pictures of the damage on a thread on here if you want to see the rest of it.
Dang I need to get on that college shit.. I've been puttin it off way too long lol. The club I joined seems pretty organized but its just gettin started. Hopefully it stays this way though. We just got a sponsor too so thats pretty cool. You ever check the regional forums here? Thats where I found out about this club.
they can't be ordered painted, you would have to get them and then have your dealership or a local shop paint them for you, I wish GM painted them from the factory, I would definitely have the gfx on mine if they did.,
