    Thanks for the comments guys. car drives really really well and i havent even take the thing over 3 grand yet lol. not sure on wheels atm probably gonna keep it like this for a while until i pay the bank as i still owe like 3 grand or somthing. but it really does need to me dumped. i might do that in the next few months. just depends on how i go with money really.

    Nice ride bud. Regarding the auto, the reco box has nothing to do with shifts. That has to do with the tune ;)

    They can be, but ultimately line pressures etc which effect the shifts are adjusted via the tune, shift points etc are also only adjusted via the tune, why would someone use a reco box,then trick it up a little when you don't have too?

    dude, is it tuned or isn't it? Your first post of the thread says "LS1 Edit" which is the tuning software used to edit the pcm.

    LMAO, stupid me read it as a current mod not as a future mod.

    Why dont you give site sponsor enhanced a call. At least get yourself a mail order. Will at least you give some real power and fuel economy over what it is now!!

    yeh i was thinking that but the way i see it instead of spending 500 bucks and getting a mail order one done i might as well just save for a few more weeks and get the real thing. fuel enonomy hasnt been that great actully so its a possibility.
