    I don't even think they realize it. Maybe they're just cultured by their surroundings to feel that way, and don't always know why =/

    Makes sense. Thanks for answering all my questions.

    Oh yeah, quality poly bushings are great!

    Any wheel hop?

    How about centre of gravity? The lower, the more the car hugs the road, providing more control to the driver.

    Am I being annoying by asking questions? As an FYI, I'm honestly curious about domestic modding.

    Isn't that part of the pleasure of modding? Getting the maximum return for the minimum of cost (efficacy), while learning more throughout the process and assembling a custom vehicle fit to your specific needs and goals?

    I noticed that you didn't do much, relative to tightening up and reinforcing the suspension and frame, beyond springs. Once again, I know diddly squat about domestics but do you have any plans for coilovers, struts, swaybars or would these be unnecessary?

    Had to do a little searching about the difference between an LS1 and LS6, to try to understand the impact of your performance mods. Didn't realise how similar. No wonder you did it, considering the gains. Thank for sharing.

    Nice whp and wtq numbers! Didn't need the proof since I already believed you. Engine swap (remember I'm not a domestic expert, albeit know sufficient that LS6/Z06 are corvette specs/model)? I was indirectly asking about the details of your performance mods.

    Nice! I know squat about domestics; some knowledge on imports. But the numbers you're quoting are much higher than stock. You must have modded it.

    Yeah, you'd need a tonnage of torque to get your beastie to the top of the powerband for an 11 second 1/4 mile. Ever dyno'ed it? I'm curious how much power you put to ground.

    Yep. We haven't prepared them for reality.

    Yes, I remember the same thing (I was in Catholic schools too). Portion sizes have just exploded in this country, it's ridiculous.

    That's about what I'm thinking... And with the aftermarket block and forged rotating assembly, it would be good to go for a long time.

    I'd probably have to sell it soon after getting it, though... If I can get it. Same reason for both -- cousin's technically 1/4th owner of the boat, so all of this is dependent on his approval and/or how much cash he's willing to add on top of the boat, for the Trans Am. Might have to sell it soon after getting it, if he wants his money out and doesn't want to share a car.

    Which would be fine... I figure we could get enough for the Trans Am where he can get 16" beadlock rims and 37x12.5" military takeoff tires, and I could get a '94-95 Mustang convertible with the 5.0 and 5-speed.

    Mustang would be to mod -- I'd throw high dollar heads on it (AFRs or Darts), a Comp Cams hydraulic roller blower cam and lifters, and whatever kind of centrifugal supercharger I can find on craigslist for cheap. And then do supporting fuel and intake and exhaust mods... So bigger injectors and fuel pump, and a 75mm throttle body on a Trick Flow intake, and then long-tube headers to a 2.5" X-pipe, 2.5" Dynomax Race Bullets, and 2.5" pipes to 3" tips. And an electric water pump and fan. I'm thinking with tuning, that should probably do 450 RWHP, which is about all the stock 5.0 block can take. And then 3.73 gears. And subframe connectors, a strut tower brace, thicker sway bars, and maybe even a roll bar, to remedy the convertible flex.
    Couldn't build it all right away, though... Don't have the money for that. That'd have to be over time.

    I liked your post and believe that we don't have a difference of opinion. The sad thing is that the hapless dentist not only where poaching, he managed to wound the animal, too. That can happen, unfortunately, but it made this mess even uglier. For the dentist's sake, I hope that the investigation will show that he was tricked into poaching. If not, fuck him!
