I think you should get "427 LSX TT" if you want numbers and letters mixed together. That sounds pretty cool.

I had it repainted last month. I left off the "TT" so it could be a sleeper.

You could just paint it on your hood, PQ. It'd be a lot cheaper than actually putting a 427 in the car. (I wish I'd thought of that sooner).

Yup.

Forgelines. Buying them from NineBall.

Just need to decide on tires. Which is gonna get me in a bit of trouble with the Jedi Counsel. LOL

I spent a couple hours on the phone with Master Pete getting the tires sorted.

Have since decided to go with the pedders set-up on Forgelines but go Nitto Invo on tires.

During the life of these tires I can get good enough to notice the difference in the Nittos and Mitchelins. LOL

Only problem is the Invos don't come in a 305 at all. So I go 315/35 rear and 295/35 in front. It's only about a 2.3% difference revs per mile so it will work. Just won't be as balanced as it could be. Should be fine though.


Right ....... Pete?






Anyway, here's a photoshop I did.

I was going to go with 295s all around, but decided to go with a 305 in the rear. I'm running 295/45/18 and 305/45/18. Front is 28.31" & rear is 28.78".

I bet you're excited to get some new wheels on your car after all you've been through.

OMG.

I'm just waiting for Tony to get in here so I can place the order now. LOL

I need to send him a check.

Want to have them ship me the wheels and tires already mounted and balanced with TPMS and all.

I will be able to legitimately say they add horse power. Not only by taking the donks off and LITERALLY adding some power, but by being able to put more on the ground.

Should be a whole knew car.

I really really really hate to lose my look.

If I could keep these wheels and have them weigh less, be less rigid and grip good I'd keep them.

I will shed a small tear as the new owner of them drives off with them.






POOR BASTARD...................

I was nervous about losing "the look" too. But, the first time I saw my new wheels and then drove on them, I was really pleased that I had made the move to new wheels. I just wasn't enjoying the car before.

I think I'll be the same.

Won't be as bad ass performing as yours but it will be night and day from what I'm used to.

It might be. Remember, performance is largely affected by the driver... and I'll be driving mine! It's going to take me a long time to get the hang of it, but I'm happy to try!


Have Bonnie ride in the passenger seat and take a video of you the first time you drive it with the new sneakers. That would be fun!
