    OK steps for LS1 ownership young Paduwan..

    1. Get it!

    Actually its like
    1) Get it!
    2) Pay it off!
    3) Mod it!
    4) Don't wreck it!


    One more thing, my friend has a 06 STI and he swears he will eat me alive. Will the WS6 take him? All it has is SLP lid and LM.

    I don't know dude, I heard those new STI's are pretty damn fast stock. If he has mods, he might be in the 12 sec. range easily.

    Race him from a roll, especially since you haven't raced your car a lot. If it's an M6, then you will have traction issues with stock tires in first and second. Up to 60 mph it will spin like mad with stockers.

    I would run him up to at least 120 or 130, so if you are slipping and sliding at the beginning, you still will have time to run him down. I think 100 plus is usually LS1's home field advantage. (I know, its Superbowl time)

    Oh damn, race him from a 30 mph roll and don't let off till 130, you should put a couple car lengths on him. But you will prolly be neck and neck at around 90 mph, then you will pull him like a choked chicken.

    You say that now...

    Then the speed bug will corrupt your brain and all you will think about are AFR heads, big ass cams, and prochargers will dance on your eyeballs while you are trying to sleep!

    To clarify, yes I meant engine horsepower, not rwhp; I figure between 320 and 340 at the crank, nowhere near an LS1 with the same mods, but fun just the same! The car is for sale, but if I keep it forced induction and a forged stroker are in the future for sure! There's something to be said for modding your first performance car, and i'd like to be able to say that I made my power with the same basic engine that came in the car, instead of swapping to the newer Gen III/IV smallblocks.

    oh and totally don't race that STi from a stop, do it from at least 35-45 mph, I can't punch it below 30 mph with my shift kit, rear gear and little mods, and if I race from a stop I don't hook up 'til I pass 40 mph. LT1s have more torque off the line (peak torque is at lower rpm) but the LS1 will have more guts and even less traction; you'll get spanked unless you take that STi into the triple digits!

    Man yesterday at the auction a 98 white Trans am came through non WS6 and auto, car was immaculate....70k miles...sold for 6 thousand. If it had been a stick i would of been a fellow LS1 owner, I'll buy my WS6 hood later, Im sick of waiting for my Trans am lol. My bud with the STI just rear ended someone because he was trailing them to close, so its out of action for a while, Monday is another day at the auction wish me luck!

    Don't get a 97-98 LS1 powered car if you can help it. The guy at Carolina AutoMasters, who tunes these things all the time, said there was something up with the electronics and they were hard to tune. Get a 99-02 F-bod if possible.

    I have a 96 GT right now, I have been beaten by a RSX type S. Actually I cant race anything right now because my drive shaft is busted and my Gas tank has sprung some holes recently. Ford =
