    That's more than I've done! Mine hasn't run since last September! Now it's all apart because why not, might as well mod it. Like I have time for that either...

    2009.5 MSM GXP 500ish N/A RWHP. Mods include but aren't limited to: Texas Speed 418 (6.8L) fully forged held together with ARP from top to bottom, PRC 255cc heads, Rick Crawford intake plenum, TB port, polish and tune, Roto-Fab 102mm CAI w/LS7 MAF, Kooks 1-7/8" headers wrapped with DEI, Corsa catless system, Circle D 3200 Stall, 3.45 final drive, BMR's complete street bushing kit and sway bars, Eibach Pro Kit, G-Force Axles, running on staggered VMR 710's with Bridgestone RE11 rubber. HSV triple gauge pack with Calais smokers kit mod, V6 tails, debadge/rebadge, V6 door handles, AU black door trim, Maverick Man under hood strut covers, & washer and bolt kit, fully corrected paint thanks to Adams Polishes and my hard work. Built with reliability in mind with some power for those times when you need to pass or go over a big hill. Just a poser, not a racer!

I just like a little power for when it gets hilly... In Iowa... Hahahaha

    I greatly respect your view in regards to the NA vs FI topic since I believe you were NA, then turbo and now LSA? In my case, are you voting for the big NA build?


    Today I looked at it sitting in the garage. Rain in the forecast for the next week it seems so she will stay parked until some wall to wall sunshine is ready.
