My LS V6 Build

Started this forum a little late halfway through all of the mods for my car. Better late than never I guess. Guess I'll tell you guys about myself and the car. I bought this from a retired state trooper, he was getting rid of it to make room is garage for a new zo6. So I purchased this from him at a great price. It was my 21st birthday present to myself back in 2011. The car is an LS, it was stock all for an axle back which sounded really good. So my first mod was to put fog lights in because I couldn't stand the black circles in the bumper. And from there on out it has been my addiction.

Modifications

Engine and Exhaust:
Mace 25mm Insulator
Mace Stage 3 Ported Intake Manifold
BBK Longtube Headers With HF Cats
BBK CAI
RX Performance Ported Throttle Body
SLP Loudmouth 1 Exhaust
Trifecta Tune
Elite Catch Can

Interior:
Upgraded to Leather Steering Wheel and Shifter
4 Pack Auxiliary Gauges Installed and Painted Red
Vittesse Paddle Shifters
Stainless Accents

Exterior:
Rally Stripes
Red Bowties
Black Door Stripes With Red Accent
Rear Blackout Panel
Black SLP Wing
Chrome Gills
Rear Window Louvers

Suspension:
Drilled and Slotted Rotors
Hotchkis Front and Rear Sways

Misc:
Painted Intake Manifold and Plenum
Painted Brake Calipers

More on the way.......

Current Exhaust Setup BBk LT Headers and an Aero exhaust which I never heard of but bought them installed on the car. Upgrading soon though to Loudmouth 1's waiting for warmer weather.

That's because the MRT v1 is just aero turbine resonators (I think that's the name of the resonator).
