The first two photos are my car/engine completely stock.

The 3rd photo is after I installed the Injen CAI

The last two photos are after I took the silver ring off of the wheels.

I have ordered the VMax CNC Ported TB, hoping it comes soon!

My next planned mod is the MRT axle back v2 exhaust. :)

I finally received my new TB and installed it this morning. I also got it painted to match my color. Didn't really test it yet, just around the neighborhood but already can feel a difference!

Finally received and installed the MRT V2 exhaust a couple days ago. Directions were pretty straight forward and it took about an hour with the help of some of my friends. I was really hyped about this product and it didn't disappoint! Love the mean sound it produces.

Here are some before/after pics

I'm debating on what my next planned mod will be. I'm either going to start working on cosmetics or go with the Solo HFC's, although it seems a bit expensive. :iono:

lscamaro 01-13-2013 09:31 PM

Coming from one ls owner to another, at this point, your best mod would be new wheels. You won't believe just how much they change the look of the car. Heck if you want performance as well buy the 18" aluminums that come on the 1lt and you even get to reuse your stock tires so it wont be that expensive. Buying those wheels alone will give you more performance than the solo hfc will give you because of all the weight you'll be saving
