I love my Z28 seats compared to my Jeep. I have a 2005 JGC Limited and the leather seats I am not a fan of. Its not the leather persay its the shape of the seats. Much like your Trailblazer. I like to be held in place, SUV seats dont cut it and honestly my Z28s dont compare to my Corvette or my GTO that I had as far as seat comfort. I would swap GTO seats in this Z28 in a heart beat!

In that a short block L36 in stock form responds well to Fi and spray in stock form to a point..
Then we pretty much have to do the same as you guys.. Throw money @ it..
Just boltons? yeah there will be gains but you've got to go heads and cam to really wake it up..

A desent cam on the stock heads will show gains obviously..
But imho something needs done to the heads to realize rhe potential of ANY cam you deside on..
Oh and yes, I would get it professionally tuned after headers too.. 3800 = ping out the wazoo if not tuned..
PCM may pull timimg and you may not see the gains from the headers..imho

Not sure if you are A4 or 5-speed but I am curious to see if the rebuild gas mileage.

So I got the car back yesterday and man did it feel good to drive her again! Headers sound nice and no ping after install. It has more of an aggressive growl at idle and high RPMs than before. Got new plugs and wires thrown in there to so I'm one VERY happy camper!!
