    Thanks fellas!
    I can't wait to have a few days to do a full detail on it. I think Prima Amigo and Victoria's Concours Red will make this thing look insane.

    Around down 13-15.

    I wouldn't have picked up something with an LSx if I were too concerned about the mileage.

    $60-65 to fill I assume. I never let it get under half if possible.
    dont ask me how i missed it.
    how are your drivng habits?

    Lately....
    Driving the Grand Am GT.

    I tend to get 14 around town in the truck. I use the loud pedal once in a while, but otherwise drive fairly tame. It got me 17.3MPG on a short trip to Castle Rock a few weeks ago. All highway, 65-75MPH. It does much better on gas at 60-65 than it does at 80. Thanks 4.10's.

    Yeah.
    I can actually drive the Trailblazer, it is more comfortable, it passes emissions, etc.
    Downfalls.....heavy (duh), mileage (duh).

    I didn't get an SS but my TB LT has the 5.3L and I love it. I've done the Fender well 4" intake, trans cooler and LS1 fans with PCMforless patch and drives like a champ.

    Actually just moved from FL to OK and drover her towing a 05 Malibu and she still stepped out when passing with decent gas mileage. 15-19 mpg while towing and interior loaded

    I imagine it did just fine. Feels more torquey than topend with the SS, but that is somewhat in the Torque Management from the factory.
    Seen a couple guys say they picked up 0.7-0.8 from a tune. Nothing else.

    Anxious to see what longtubes, SS3600, Fenderwell intake, LS7 MAF, and tune do for it. Come on March....

    These have been a royal pain in my ass. But when they work right....I see EVERYTHING!!!
    Thinking I may have a bad ballast....working with the manufacturer for a replacement.

    You and everybody else driving in the opposing direction. Retrofitted or aftermarket HID kits are famous for blinding the shit out of everyone on the road.

    On of the reasons I went 35W. Fully understand that the light gets scattered in the housing.
    I haven't been flashed yet. Most of the guys with them in the TBSS's say the same thing....
