I understand adding mods for performance gains, but it sounds like from your statement that you think the performance mods made on the LT make it have so much more "go" than stock....but it's really not that much of a difference....regardless how much different the sound of your exhaust is compared to stock.

I don't care if you add LT's, catback, intake, suspension mods, all the Vmax/Mace products, a tune....the LS/LT is still all show and no go if you think it doesn't have much "go" when it's stock. These mods will wake it up a some (you can't add up all the HP numbers from all of your separate mods and automatically it has as much HP as an LS3 or L99) but it's not like it's a completely different engine and it blows the stock engine out of the water like a TT or some sort of SC would. If someone has done that, that is when you can say the LT/LS is not "all show".

Your car looks awesome, OP!! Well done!!

Just saw that your car is supercharged....damn....now I'm sure you can say your car is not all show, no go. LOL!! My bad. Inserting foot into mouth now. Didn't know they had a SC for the LT/LS. That's bada$$ man.

Thanks, guys! And yes, I will eventually have more performance mods down the road, just prefered to have the cosmetic mods done first. To each his own.
