Jumping to LFX forum

As much as I love my baby I'm doing an upgrade/downgrade lol. I'm upgrading from a 2010 to a 2013 but downgrading from a 1LT to a 1LS. Going with Blue Ray as the color. I do like IBM better though. Not sure why they did away with the color. A few things played into the change. One my heart was still broke after the timing chain issue. Though they say it's an upgraded chain I still don't trust it. I did most of the mods I wanted to do. It will give me a new toy to play with. It will also save me about $125 a month. Though I'm sure I'll put it right back into the car lol. I'm picking it up this Friday. That gives me a few days to pull my mods off. It will be like starting with a new canvas haha.

Congrats man. I wish they still made IBM, too. But hey, you can't have everything. New car smell again...gotta love it.

Hey man congrats!

I think that is an interesting move...I'd like to know your impression of the car and if you notice any differences. I think the LFX is a great starting place for mods. Yea there aren't a ton available, but you also don't need as many to achieve good gains versus the LLT.

I'll keep you all posted on my thoughts. A few of you know that I was toying with the idea of doing this for a while now. With some changes in my life the time was right. Ok back outside to De-mod haha.

Nice! You definitely came out on top there to get out of the "time" bomb of an LLT (pun intended).
