    Get some subframe connectors. Then maybe look into l/t headers and an ory. If you still have the stock torque arm, look into an aftermarket one to relocate it off of the tranny tailshaft.

    We would need to know what your current mods are before we can suggest something

    Get a set of subframe connectors, and then look into a torque arm that doesn't mount on the tranny tailshaft.

    Check out UMI. They're a sponser here, and have top quality products.

    SFCs will help to reduce body flex and stiffen up the chassis.

    The torque arm in stock form is weak and puts too much stress on the tailshaft of the transmission. An aftermarket one will relocate the torque arm to the crossmember, and be much stronger.

    Yeah, seems like a no-brainer to me. Put it towards mods on the LS1 car.

    Either that, or get the hood and wing painted.

    Wait, you chose to have the hood and wing black??

    Yeah, I meant have it painted to match the rest of the car.

    Other than that, IMO you're just throwing money away if you continue to mod that car while you know you'll be getting another soon.
