I believe he was pointing out that properly prepped, the stock tires can hook and are not the limiting factor. A nitrous car is usually a harder hitting car, so if he's able to get those times with stock tires he's doing something right.

Discount Tire will match prices with anyone online; so, if you can find some TSW wheels on a site like Wheelsnext.com (cheapest I could find at $285 for 20x9), you can take a printout to any Discount / America's Tire and they will order it at that price. Same with tires, obviously.

I just picked up a set of four TSW Nurburgring 20x9 Wheels and some okay all-weather Yokohama Parada S-Spec Tires and saved a good $40 per wheel and $20 per tire. Definitely worth the time doing a little research and printing out a couple of pages.

Saved some money, dropped another 30 lbs. from the car. Win-Win!
I think between the headers, exhaust and wheels, my baby is about 70+ lbs. lighter.

Removing that unsprung weight is definitely the best way to go and multiplies its value as the speeds climb.

It is what it is. People will post what they want when they want. Don't mean to be bitchy here, but we made the leap and did something. Seems like everyone can just be patient and let us do our thing. If you gotta know, go buy one and post the details.

lets be straight - tip of the hat to you for jumping off into the abyss and trying something new. i haven't done anything turbo wise yet, or maybe ever, depending on how the situation pans out with everyone's awful experiences with them. don't get your panties in a bunch, pal.

I haven't heard any of them claim to have had an awful experience. You want 1/4 mi. times but I haven't seen you post your own. I have, so keep the meows and panties to yourself!

pardon my interpretation, but if you spend several thousand dollars and hundreds of man hours on a turbo and its still not working properly, that in itself is awful.

Gretchen and the other FI guys here have provided invaulable information to the members of these forums. All I see you doing is causing social issues. If the easiest route to your happiness is going for an SS.... then jump on the wagon man.

"""""Check this out, Jay Leno works with GM to design this masterpiece, a 3.6L direct injected V-6 with a pair of Turbonetics T-3 turbochargers blows through a custom air-to-air intercooler, force-feeding the engine about seven pounds of boost and lifting its horsepower level to about 425.""""

That post pretty much sums it up. You present your "interpretation" as facts here and in other threads, you have no facts. You have nothing to base any interpretation on. You don't even ask the questions. For example, where did you get the hunderds of hours from??? I WISH I HAD SPENT HUNDREDS OF HOURS ON MY CAR!!! I love working on my car and if I wasn't working 300+ hrs/mo I would maybe have spent hundreds of hours on it over the last few months, and LOVED EVERY MINUTE OF IT.

Here are some facts so you can quit misinterpreting things:

1) Tracey and I built the whole thing in 1 week. I doubt we spent 100 hours total.
2) Since I got back from FL I haven't spent 20 hrs on it. The longest session was the day we took the exhaust off to get all the oil out -- about 3 hrs including a lot of talking with my friends as we waited for parts to dry.
3) My automatic V6 now puts out more power than an L99 SS at just 4.5 psi. At 9-10 psi it will rival the ZR1. That will take about 45 min. to swap springs and log it for Vince and about 10 minutes to install any new tune that may be necessary. WHAT MOD CAN YOU DO THAT TAKE 1 HOUR AND ADDS THAT MUCH POWER?

If you are looking for power without having to work on your car then fine. Just don't tell me and everyone else that you know more about the value of having turbos on the LLT than we do. You don't have one and therefore have no experience with them.

When and if you get the SS, have fun with that idea that they won't need to be worked on. The oil, diff and tranny fluids need to be change, it will need new plugs, the tires will wear out, etc... As for me, I'll keep enjoying my cars and truck and keep wishing I could spend hundreds of hours working on them.

Well I have a turbo and it isnt done yet, but its just night and day. The car will be able to hang with just about anything that isnt just nuts. But, if you want an amazing track time, I hate to say it but you should get an SS and do what you want to it. The reason we throw the money down is to get a unique car that is different, and is FASTER, and BETTER GAS MILEAGE than an SS for still less money. It is a good feeling to see the looks on peoples faces when they see what they think is just a stock v6 fly past them. A turbo v6 is just the perfect street car, it will beat just about anything you go up against, and will be able to hang with even most high end cars to some point.
