Not too bad for 4K. You might take it easy with hard pulls. That L61 bottom end has some of the weakest rods GM put into the eotech engines. They should hold you well into the 150-200k miles if you go easy on it. Then again, if you. Push the redline a bunch, you can lunch it in an afternoon…..clean looking setup though
BTW, noticed you. Don’t have integrated steering wheel Buttons..adding cruise control and radio controls is well worth it for those longer drives.

You will need to have your BCM instructed (programmed) to operate upon the button command ,..start cruiz, …..it’s already built in. GM just didn’t. Give you the buttons and enable it in the BCM.

Cruise would be nice to have thats for sure, ill have to look into the guides for that, and noted about the motor as well thanks for that.

I drove this car before! In Ohio! Small world it ripped good! I didn’t buy it due to a rat nest of headlight wires.
It pulls well for what it is. Im in NY, and the original owner (who i bought it from) is as well, was he out there with it or something? The headlights wires arent all over or anything though, ive had the housings out a few times now.

Agreed nice wheels. And obviously the interior looks amazing
I love the all black interior, theres a few tans pieces still but its very clean overall.

Another supercharged auto? Very cool! I love the wheels too!

Welcome to the forums! :)
That it is, & Thank you!!
