We'll see what I get for a quote and go from there.

Thanks guys for the help.
If you need an original grill for any reason I've got one for you.

If you want a V6 fascia, I can give you one. It'll need paint though

I'm leaning more and more to a ZL1... wasn't really on my list... I kinda like the "sleeper" look of my car...

but... I do like the idea of a ZL1 front with the H Grille....

It'll look great with the Heritage Grill! This was the best straight on shot I could find. Lot of color, but you get the idea.

Pedders FE 4/5 Rear Swaybar and LCA upgrade

I'm by no means a pro diver so carrying the speed I was, I wasn't sure I'd be able to correct in time to keep from hitting a curb... There is no doubt the car is more connected in a turn... Seems to me that it is a little more forgiving to throttle inputs in a turn also... I was in 2nd doing about 50 in a turn and was blipping the gas to try and drift the car and it didn't come loose like it used to. It just went faster.... I had to jump on the gas to get it to break loose at lower speeds/sharper turns....

I'm really looking forward to getting on an Autox... just to learn where the limit is... I'm not good/brave enough to try and find it otherwise.



but I can say for a relative rookie like me the difference is noticeable....
