Newbie

I'm new to the forum but I've had my Balt for a while. I got my 2006 LT2 sedan in 06. I just haven't had the money to do any mods. I want to keep it N/A just b/c FI makes me nervous and I've heard the 2.2 has high compression anyway. It's my DD and my family car so I'm not able to do anything that would take a while. I also don't really have place to do the work i.e. a shop or garage so that will be fun. I'm excited about what I've learned so far and showing what I'm able to do one I get it done.

Thanks for the welcome!

It's not that I think FI is bad I just don't know enough about it. I'm not a gear head by any means so any mod I do needs to be a bolt on.

and fwiw? that one wasn't in the abbreviations thread
