I'm tired of the current look of the new cars that have been released lately and I don't want any of it. I've started saving up for a down payment (and mod money) for a 2001-2002 white Trans Am WS-6 with a 6 speed. I wanted an SXT trep, but I think I want a "hot car" for sunny Las Vegas (I plan to attend UNLV in fall of 2005) and something that the ladies will love. I wont do much to it as far as engine work goes, but I want to make it more beefy and sweet looking. I want to go after the appearence first with a SLP Firehawk or H.O. hood (I don't really care for the quad scoops on the WS6) to make it look a little more low profile and a fixed headlamp conversion (not very many on the road) and 18 or 19" moda r6 rims. I would love to purchase the 1LE suspension package but that is a maybe due to it's very high price. You can't argue with it's capability however. As far as "go fast" goodies, here is a list:
-High Velosity 1 7/8" long tube headers, no cats, Dr. Gas X-pipe to Sweet Thunder Chambered mufflers dumped through side pipes with some nice dual oval tips on each side.
-High flow cold air induction connected directly to the hood.
-160 degree t-stat
-Maybe a 75 shot of nitrous
-Z06 clutch assy.
-Z06 intake manifold
nothing to major as I plan on doing more show than track duty while in college.
I think I'm ready for some good old fashioned V8 torque to go hunting unsuspecting Civics and the all mighty Mustang. I'll keep the rear stock tires for nights that I feel like I want to do some stupid shit.
Flame if you want, but in fall of 2005, this LH'er becomes DI.net's next F-Body guru.
Any comments? I don't mind. Positive or Negitive. Any input is greatly apreciated.
Here is a video of some LS1 power.
This is how I want my exhaust to sound.
Here is a pic of what inspired my new obsession.
edit: note the fixed headlights and SLP H.O. hood.
