Great, good to know. But will foglights be able to work as well since I don't have auto power locks on the steering wheel?

For fog lights to work you either need to get a wiring harness for them, or wire them up yourself. I just used wire from Lowes and a switch I had and after about 3 hours they were all wired up.

Been down that road already and really just look for a clean LSJ to get and sell yours. I know you don't want to hear that but I have the same things done to mine and yours will never be fast being an 06 because of trifecta so just get the real SS/SC.

Soon to come- EFR 6758 turbo kit and make Retro Headlights.

Haha, I'm the same way. Dropped some big bills in my base and it ain't no SS that's for sure. If you're looking for speed/power, you have two options. a) Completely overhaul your LS and go FI, or b) trade it in for a real SS. I have the same engine as yours, and fully bolted and looney tuned by Trifecta, it's only good for about 145whp. So you're looking at an intake, throttle body, intake manifold, header, downpipe, catback and tune to make the same power as a 2.4. Really isn't worth the trouble imo.

For all the money you put into bolt ons, you can probably find and buy a supercharger.

Might just go buy a ss. I've dumped over 3 grand in mine and she still needs the side skirts but I've done everything to it minus forced induction and the intake manifold.

Showoff thread finally!!!! : )

Well just think, if you buy an SS you will have to pay SS insurance. Depending on your rates, you could save more money in the long run by converting your car to a SS. I know personally that is why I bought an LT over a SS.
