I bought this car as commuter when i was living in Montana. I took a job as an elevator mechanic apprentice. Needless to say, they're aren't that many elevators in Montana. So i needed a cheap car that got good mileage, and had a warranty. i was commuting at least 150 miles a week one way, usually about 360. so i picked up this lil LS so i could drive it into the ground. Well, after about a year, that got job old. But the car didn't. I fell in love with this car, and found a community of people who had too. I started modding it, and the result (so far) is what you see here...

wow....took ya long enough Shane...lol.

Looks great man...

? tho...do you recommend the ottp rear sway...is that the street or the hardcore bar...
Thanks Mike, and i know, im lazy! :toung:

its the only car ive driven with a sway, so i dont really have a frame of reference. but i love it, and it was a huge upgrade for me, and i felt it instantly.
its the street. from what i read before buying it, the hardcore seemed like more than i wanted. but sometimes i wonder....:noworry:

Ya, ive always thought the same thing about yours. My rims suck though, starting to peel. Not looking forward to replacing them. At least paying for them anyway lol. Definitely ready for a change visualy though.

how do you like that intake?
Im not going to have a frame of refference because im adding the manifold, throttle body and tuning at the same time. So its going to be a big jump... Well big for a 2.2.

But from what everyone says, with just the manifold you loose some low end torque. But gain top end. I wouldnt do it until you have full exhaust done myself. (not sure if you do.)

Love my K&N though if thats what you're asking about.
