Exactly man! I'm never getting rid of my V6 either. The V8 will be an addition to the family

Thank you very much for the kind words. It funny you mention that 10 years comment because when I first started I thought the exact same way when looking at what others have done to their cars and look at my car now. I guess what I am trying to say is you never know lol.

Forgot to update my build thread when I went to the 1/4mile this past weekend. Not much to say really other than I ran a new personal best. Had some traction issues with my general gmax tires but when I dropped the pressure down to 30psi in the rear tires I was able to get better traction (but still had some issues). I am very proud of myself running a 13.80@101. Here is the slip.

My 60' could have been better but the track I go to on Test and Tune days doesn't have the best traction.


Not much as far as new mods is going on lately just enjoying the last couple of weeks before the car goes into storage for the winter. I do have some Diode Dynamics Stage 2 LED DRLs coming in on Monday to replace my defective AAC ones. Hopefully my third set of lights won't give me issues but we will see. Over this winter I have a decent amount planned. Hoping to get some coilovers and some drag radials as well as have two projects in mind.

Congrats on the new personal best! Can't wait to see what your winter mods turn out to be! With coilovers and drag radials you are gonna be beating that personal best again for sure!

Quick update to show my build thread some love since no new mods will be going on thanks to winter being here .

One Black Friday I ordered some Megan Racing Coilovers and they came into today. They look really nice! I'll have to get some better pics when I am not in a hurry to go to work lol but here is one:



I also ordered 2 18x9.5 Corvette C6 Z06 wheels that I will use as rear drag racing wheels. Got a great deal on them and couldn't pass them up. I plan on getting some Mickey Thompsons in a couple months with my tax return and get them mounted.

Now no more mods need to save up for Vegas in a couple weeks haha!

For looks I would love to do:

NPP Diffuser with Quad Tips
GM GFX Splitter
Heritage Grill
Street Scene Lower Grill with Ducts
and Fender Vents

For Performance
Might switch to an HP tune if it is worth it
Want to try out the 25% underdrive pulley
SS rear end swap
DSS 1-piece driveshaft


Some of these prob won't be for awhile though but def think the diffuser/quad tips and grill will be relatively soonish.

Thanks for the info. Those are some really cool mods you have planned. Certainly building one nice ride. I have thought about many of those myself. The most important one I see on your list for performance (especially at the drag strip), will be that SS rear end.

I think that might be next winter honestly. Might try to see if I can have both my cars where I live so over the winter I can try to install the rear end myself and save some $$, it doesn't seem to be that hard?
