Once you guys get your bone stock Chevrolet SS what first modifications will you be doing?

What might be some of the best bang for your buck modifications?

After you get through the first modifications process what do you plan on doing after?

I think a dyno tune is a must on this car, especially due to the auto transmission.

Personally, I think long tube headers and a blowers are the only 2 mods worth doing these days.
A Eaton TVS2300 would be a good choice due to the curb weight and simplicity.

But, if you want a blown GM sedan, you should just buy a CTS-V and be done with it.
If for some reason, you feel compelled to race a 4,000lb car, a 100hp dry shot of nitrous would work well.

I think a good dyno tune with some long tube headers would be a nice combo for a daily driver, and that is all that I would personally do to this car.

The first thing I'm getting is a comfortable couch, because I'm going to be sleeping on it for a few weeks after I bring that thing home.

Why not just take her to a non-extradition country for some rock climbing or scuba diving instead?

That's heartless and absurd. She's a lovely, lovely woman and I would never even consider such a thing.

But since you mentioned it, which countries have the most favorable extradition treaties? Just out of curiosity, I mean.

Window tints, blacking out the badges with plasti-dip or vinyl wrap, maybe some aftermarket wheels.

If a manual transmission was an option I would have said short shifter but NVM!

I probably could transfer most of my mods over from the G8. Just use HP Tuners to tune the car, and swap my long tubes over to it.

I like the black.
You gotta represent with a pic of you next to your whip.
While I don't have an issue with posting pics of my car online, I'm a little loathe to posting pics of me with my car online.

I don't do Facebook for many reasons (for example).

Darn.
With a screen name like "Slizzo", and the chrome on those rims, I was looking forward to seeing your suburban gangsta self represent the mean streets of Connecticut. :D

Yeah, because chrome rims instantly mean "gangsta".

Nice try bud.

I actually suspected you were a suburban Eminem from your "Slizzo" screen name. The chrome rims just supported that theory.

So please post some pics of you and your whip so we can see how you represent the CT. :D

Nickname given to me by a friend I served with who got airlifted out of Iraq when he got injured. Keep trying.

All the backround info isn't pertinent, and could me misconstrued you trying to exploit your friend's sacrifice.
We don't talk about our sacrifice and military service in our family.
It's not for public discussion.

If "Slizzo" doesn't reflect my ASSumption of suburban thuggery, then just end the suspense and reveal the origin. It can't be any more personal than the irrelevant information you have already revealed.th

My screen name is self explanatory, twin turbo'd sixth generation Corvette.
