Kind of having second thoughts about trading up to the SS. Still owe more on the car than it is currently worth anyway so I'll be holding on to her for another year at least, but I am kind of attached to her anyway and may just get her paid off first...

In the meantime I have a few mods added to my list for the near future:

Stage 3 ported Intake Manifold
25mm Manifold Insulator
Plenum Spacer
Ported Throttle body

The more mods you add the harder it gets to let go and trade up...

Looking good...

Absolutely nothing wrong with hanging on to that car. As long as your transmission is holding up, the V6 is awesome! (I miss mine every so often - especially when it passed me once going the other way on 288 - ).

I ordered a used stock manifold today with only 10 miles on it and as soon as it comes in I'll be sending it to Jay of MACE for porting !

Also going to get the 25mm insulator and the plenum spacer - can't wait to feel the results.

I may have to mod my Vararam but to be honest it was one of the first ones produced and it has always had a tendency to point a little upwards due to the radiator, I suspect with the insulator installed and sitting a bit higher it may solve the problem and sit better on the radiator; hopefully I won't have to do any modding at all......

June 2012 - Spare Stock Intake Manifold

Ok so took delivery of my spare intake manifold - cost me $160 from Linders auto parts and it only has 10 miles on it (it's from a 2009 Cadilac CTS which also has the LLT engine).

I'll be shipping it for porting tomorrow and can't wait to get it back so I can get it installed together with the 25mm Manifold insulator and the plenum spacer.

Anyone know a local machine polisher or a powder coater ? I haven't decided which of the two to do yet but want to give the manifold a better look.

It should tone it down a little - It's pretty loud right now with my current set up and has a little rasp - I'm just hoping I like it

Very interested to see what these mods do for you. It's been cool seeing and hearing the car 'transform' thru the mods.
