Not bad. Gunna have to figure out your forced induction goals before you get a Cai.

Fe5 struts and shocks with ssc springs look great. Getting a tsudo catback is prob your best $$$ catback aswell.

Zzpperformance will be your friend


oh and one of these will make you happy.

Well! I really wish I could have posted an update by now! Damn you stupid dealership!

Finally got my car back for a 2nd time! Owned it for about 3 weeks now, and have only actually had it in my driveway for one day, and drove for an hour. It now has a 2nd brand new clutch haha.

Anyways been doing allot of planning for the car and got a few parts in the garage already ready to be installed.

My power lock conversion kit came in plus I have a high rise wing on its way.

After 05 the base model became the LS and the options model became the LT. So you were on the right track compared to what everyone else has. I get asked frequently how I did my auto conversion and sunroof on my LS. I always have to explain that!

Nope. The lap motor (09-10) has 155hp, mostly due to an intake change
