This car has been a little bit of a project over the last 8 months of owning it. Everything I've done to this car I found or read about on this forum. The information provided on these forums is invaluable. The car has been to STG Motorsports in St Louis twice, once for the LSA conversation and the second time for a custom grind Cam Motions Cam and supporting mods. Can not recommend Greg @ STG Motorsports and Shane Hinds tuning enough. Quality, Delivery & Cost cannot be beat. Bao @WetWerksMedia.com took these amazing photos. If you're in the ChicagoLand Area hit him up. He drove into the city at 5am from Aurora to get the lighting right from the sunrise.

That looks absolutely amazing, wow. Really looks like a high-end build and the wheel/stance combo is probably the best I've seen. Yeah...just another NGM photo thread, ha!

Looks fantastic. With the suspension upgrades how different does it feel from stock? I'm sure it complements your engine upgrades nicely.

The best way to describe it would be the MAG Ride settings all got one level stiffer i.e. Tour now feels like Sport and Sport fells like Performance. Performance feel like....ah awesome :devil

I can't say the toe end links and trailing arms made a noticeable difference. I did it to reduce wheel hop when I accelerate hard (burnout) hehe. I blew the dif on my CTS-V (V1) playing around and that car had horrible wheel hop.

Car looks great!

What's the offset on the wheels? (F&R)
I don't know them off the top of my head. I'll take a look at the boxes they came in. I know I seen it on there.
