This would be the same size as stock and much taller than the original post. If the car has the same size as it currently has then 20's would be good for me with no reason to want 19's. I don't like...

I'm going to want 19's if the diameter shrunk that much. Like 245/45R19F & 275/40R19R or 255/40R19F & 285/35R19R. If that diameter is true then I think its a given that the car got a little smaller...

I still don't know which Meling oil pump is best for a LS engine. Its funny how different shops will debate one over the other. I still would like to know if it should be high volume or high...

Its very strange that GM is putting the x pipe so far back. I have seen that on 2 different V cars now with completely different engines. That just doesn't seem like the best place to put it for the...

3.70-3.91 gears and a triple disk converter would be okay for 525RWHP but with 700RWHP your not going to want any more than 3.45 gears. With 700 RWHP and 3.70's not only is traction going to be a...

Wait until the 6th gen comes out. Value its performance vs price. Look for left over new 5th gen ZL1's which by that time could be in the $50k price range with used ones in the low $40k prices....

I would think without a trans brake that it would run slower? You would have less gearing and gear spacing and shift recovery. Totally understand that a stock 6L80E doesn't like nitrous though and...
