Look out now!
Well after using my car as a 100 mile a day DD, and not doing much but minor bolt ons I finally decided to spend some money (and time) on my car now that I have a little beater to drive back and forth to work. So I ordered a UMI adj T arm, Adj phr, pacesetters, LS6 intake, MSD superconductors, TR55's, TSP MS3 cam kit and complete valvetrain upgrade to match with the ported LS6 oil pump of course, a NOS 150 kit (actually just needed nozzle had the rest already), vigilante 3500 stall, moser 9 inch with 4.10's, 42# siemens injectors, racetronix fuel pump with plug and play harness, and all parts needed to make my trans equivalent to a PATC raptor lvl 3 trans, and full royal purple fluids.
First off I installed the LS6 intake, pacesetters, plugs, wires, changed oil with royal purple. It made a noticable difference. Yesterday I finally finished building the trans and added the stall. Woa BIG difference even with the 2.73's. Well just finished the rear end install today. Holy s$*@! The car is Completely different. Those 315's are completely useless anywhere in first gear no matter how fast you are going! Stand on it while already moving pretty good and hold on. Going from a stock stall and 2.73's to the 3500 and 4.10 felt like trading in a pinto for a vette. Anyone with an auto trying to decide next mods I will DEFINATELY recommend a stall and gears.
Next week its cam and fuel system upgrade and nitrous install and then off to get tuned. Drag radials are now a must and hopefully I'll get kicked off my local track for not having a rollcage and maybe seeing some air underneath the front tires
