lol, mudflaps are gone due to popular demand! rear mudflaps have been cut shorter so the bumper still has protection from tar and stones etc...nothing worse than getting wet tar on ur paint.

BANKS, u hav obviously had ur LS1 tuned..wat were the power results and how much approx??

Nope not yet but i've researched it to all ****... most untuned LS1's put out around the 185-195rwkw range, after a tune, full exhaust and CAI most hit around the 225-235rwkw range. All pending on the age of the engine and its life at the time of the tune aswell as the dyno! Completely different cars thou, been in an untuned LS1 then the same one with all the mentioned mods, Drived completely different! Just remember its only a number, its how its drives that makes the difference and what it lays down the quarter, thats the real number ;)

haha true true! it's not alot of rwkw stock is it..i searched a couple on youtube (STOCK VZ SS apparently) and they pulled about 208rwkw..but you know more than me i havent researched it apart from that.

Would be nice to get the mods u have mentioned done this year if i save properly.

Man it's looking nice. Did the growler kit really add that much power. On my VT wagon I did see a great fuel saving but those figures are pretty amazing.
