It's depressing at times to think I could've almost paid my car off by now had I not decided to play. Whatcha gonna do though??

I'm just gonna enjoy the hell out of my car while I can cause life is too short for what ifs.

^LMAO!!!!

LOVE IT!!!

Yeah...I know the feeling. I'm sitting here thinking of all the cool stuff I could buy...and here I am with another $13,000 I still owe on the car. With the additions I've done, I could probably be down to $10k right now...give or take....

But. Now...for that SUPERCHARGER.....

That's what you get for putting kick-ass suspension parts in the car without overhauling the whole darn thing!!!!! j.k.

Seriously, though...a little stronger pieces will help in the long run. For the short term, though, I'd do what Pete suggested that night...

Ain't that the truth!!! (the kick ass suspension parts, that is...)

Doing exactly what Pete said for the time being and once I get the LCA's from Dan, those puppies are going in!

On a side note, I'm still excited about those darn radius bushing inserts. I can't believe just how much more nimble the car feels now...

Remember "body roll???"


I DON'T!!!

Sometimes I wish GM's NVH tests weren't so rigorous...but then you're wouldn't be special. Sooo....nevermind.

I did subs first because I love my tunes when cruising. The subs made a mediocre sound system sound MUCH better. Also, I get to enjoy the sound system every minute I'm driving.

Now that you have that bad ass cam and cut outs....you'll never turn your radio on again

Plus once you hit the track you'll be chucking the sub box out to save some weight

Well...I already have a JL 10 and JL 12 in seperate boxes in the trunk being powered be a JL 250 watt amp. It puts out some great bass and yes, the added weight is worth the trade off. I am just tired of turning up the volume and not having it be crystal clear at the volume level that I like. I figure that getting a couple 6 1/2's for the doors and maybe some components for the rears with a 70x4 watt amp would really help.
Then again, I love the mpd1 spoiler and the street scenes spoiler...and either one of those painted would cost les than the sound system...

I didn't realize you already had some audio improvements.

Get the spoiler. I think the MPD1 is the best one out there. It has the best lines.
