You certainly are but no need to set the record straight. I've been subscribed to your thread since Oshawa because I'm curious how much money will be raised. I hope it's enough for a new motor, car payoff, house payoff, kids through college, etc. And I'm confident you'd do the same if the situation had been reversed--even for the OP and even for Chris when he grenaded and flipped his S/C RJT at LSP last Sunday. As you told Chris--pay to play--even if it's for some less than for others.

Just saw your post. If you're serious about the OE parts. Definitely. I'm trying to recoop my losses..

On a side note.. I ordered XSPower headers (I had an exhaust leak that was driving me insane, and the kit was 650..i'll take the hit for now and do it right)

Will post more pictures when I get them.. I will also be selling my Pype's Pype-Bombs when I get the kit installed.

Found the timeslip for the LS3 before it blew.

The LSX should be faster than this...

On the highway.. I can now do this with the LSX.. It would only get 19.8-20.0mpg before the exhaust and new tune.

Man this is a hard thread to find. I forgot to subscribe to this! I really like that coil relocation! Really want to do something like that on my car once it's off DD duty.

Here is a picture of the LG Motorsports G5 Intake That I won in their raffle on here.

definitely made a big difference on throttle response and how it drives.

Here are some of the install pics of my gauge pod.

It started gray..but didn't look right so it got painted black.

I also cut a hole in the bottom of the area where the tray was to make installing the gauges easier. Not the prettiest cut..but you'll never see it

And it was supposed to be installed with double sided tape..that wasn't gonna fly with me..so i modified it for screws.

And yes there is duct tape in the last picture inside of the pod.. I saw some light through the small gaps, so i covered them just in case.

The Gauges are GlowShift Tinted Series Gauges. Oil Pressure and Wideband.
