We are swapping everything from the tranny back on to the 2012 and putting the new LLT I was going to build into this one. All the suspension parts as well as the wheels/tires on of course going to be swapped. We are also going to do some custom striping, ala the COPO, so SIXJAK wasn't far off I guess.
Lol, with the COPO stripes points in the direction you want to go I assume. Would be nice to see a V6 in that territory. Good luck and I will be looking forward to this build. I have a tuning solution for the LLT in town but that is my last resort. Don't want to pay for another tune unless its the last resort. Myself and Tracy are rebuilding my cars set up soon. And I will go from there, this is going to be a interesting winter for many I see.

Don't think I'll ever see 9s in this car, but low 11s or even high 10s are possible.

Congrats on the new ride. Will be watching the new build build closely. I guess it time someone took the LFX platform to another level. Waiting to see them results.

Good luck Gretchen ! Coming from a fellow SGM owner it was great watching you take the LLT to its limits but sad to see the brick wall also unfortunately. Hopefully someone figures out this damn tuning problem.

Thanks everyone. I think this is going to be fun and very interesting. Learned a lot from the LLT and expect to learn even more from the LFX.

cant wait to see the new build in progress. I guess the integrated exhaust manifold wont matter since your gonna turbo it. so prolly a pretty good idea going to LFX. Good luck with the build.

With a little relocation, you can mount the turbos direct to the heads....

Derek,

Congrats on the new ride.Lord knows you gave the old one hell of a try, but somethings are not meant to be...

I'm waiting to see the animal you can build without the issues you've been fighting...

Good Luck Brother...
