With NASCAR racing the SS it will certainly get the attention that the GTO never got when introduced.


Wish they would bring over the Ute, I could use a new work truck....

I also believe with the introduction of the SS it will revise the 4-door V8 supercar RWD competitiveness<<is this a legit word??<<. What the G8 was intended to do before it was hacked.

V8 Supercars coming to America's market???
>Chevy SS-Now here
>Dodge 300 SRT-8-Already here
>Ford Tauris/Falcon?
>Nissan Altima?>>2 top ten positions w/holden commodore having 8 in first preseason test day @Sydney. Ford Falcons in trouble???
>Toyota Aurion/Camry TRD(rear wheel drive)<<Something is happening with this new brand intended to replace Avalon.

Headed out this morning to Brian Harris to get an alignment done since I got everything installed with new GSR struts and shocks. Going to let them install new GForce toe rods I've been wanting to put on but ran out of time while doing the suspension work over the weekend.

The new SS looks like a nice car, but my wife wants a convertible. She definitely does not want another sedan. We've looked at just about everything and the A5 is the best fit for what we're looking for.

Mike, if you keep delaying this purchase...it will eventually not fit. That's all I'm saying.

If I felt better about the G6, I would go ahead and pay off the Frontier and get rid of the GTO for a new 1LE Camaro. Unfortunately that's just not the case. The Frontier should be paid off in July and then I'll start seriously looking at replacing the G6 with the A5.

Re: The Official Louisiana Herd Thread

yeah the reviews seem great on it as far as power gains. Install is the only thing worrying me. I hope it fits without having to hack to much up. I already have a breakout harness and going to use a fbody IAT.

You won't need to hack up anything except the rad cover and that's super easy. I moved the ait sensor on the front side of the intake In front of radiator.

Well, I found my 1LE. Fortunately, it's in Baltimore so I can't screw up and trade in the GTO in on it.

That's a 2SS with the dual mode exhaust. It just doesn't have the RS package, which is basically paying $1400 for the halo headlights and red SS badges.

If the weather is better tomorrow, I'll probably torture myself more and test drive the 1LE at Gerry Lane.

All makes and models. Benefit to pay the funeral expenses for a kid. Remi Roussel. I might swing through for a bit on my way to New Orleans. Sometime around noon.

Alright, lets boil soon!!

Also big thanks to Mike (mwill15) for hooking me up with the rear exhaust gasket he ordered and ordering himself a new one so I didn't have to wait. Car is fat, happy, and back on the road. Now I just need to worry about the stereo and make a decision on that cam...
