  3. LS3 advice.

    As the cars hibernate for the winter I bought just a few things. I bought stainless speed eng. 1 7/8 headers and cat-less x-pipes. Going to have them ceramic coated before they go on. Also bought a new set of 19/20 Black Corvette "cup" wheels and Michelin Pilot AS3 tires. Damnnnnn tires are expensive. I had planned on getting a cam too, and call it a day. After seeing Johns results I may seek boost. Depends on a few things non-car related if I do or don't. I get more indecisive everyday as to if or what I want from this vette. Probably an age thing.

    I need to just mimic this and call it a day. John do you have a full list of parts and cost?
  5. SEMA 2018

    IT WAS AWESOME! Honestly the pics you will find online of the cars and event are better than what I took. Sisters company sponsored the Counts Customs after party. Ill try and post a pic or two. Met most of the guys from counts except for Danny. Guess he doesn't do much public stuff. Met Gene Winfield, and several other folks I have seen on tv but honestly had know idea who they were aside from horny Mike. He is exactly as expected. Must have been close to 3000 invited guest. Also saw Chip Foose, Leno, the group from Street Outlaws. Farmtruck is a dinky dude and big chief is one big SOB. Also saw the diesel bro's and lots of the TV show folks from velocity. I don't get star struck so I didn't ask for any autographs. I did get drunk with the guy who built this truck that was at my sisters booth. He was offered several hundred thousand for it at the show. Turned it down. Many of the cars/bikes are under sponsorship and contracted to be at other events through out the upcoming year. Then they go to auction. So SEMA is huge, indescribably huge and I only had two days to see what I could. To take your time and actually talk t the reps and ask questions about new products as well a see the show would easily take the whole week. I plan on doing just that next year. Many of the cars are outstanding and details are spectacular. Others, lots of others are WTF? I would say this has to be a bucket list event for any enthusiast . Just be ready for sore feet.

    Found out a couple weeks my grandchild is going to be a girl. My son and I are both ecstatic! Now to convince his girlfriend that the names she is picking are dumb.
  7. What kind of phone do car guys use?

    Currently both an Android and an iPhone. Android is my personal phone, company provides the iPhone (7). Will be getting rid of android (Samsung edge) at the end of this month. The worst phone I have ever had.

  10. SEMA 2018

    One of my bucket list items is going to be scratched off. I am going to SEMA this year. My step sister is the marketing guru for Sherwin Williams automotive division and is in charge of SEMA. Gong with her and my brother in law. Also get to go to a party at Counts Customs and meet the celebrity types. Will only be there for a couple days so I am planning my floor travels early. I am going to try and get some show buys as well.

    This pegs the cool meter! Minivans do not even register on the cool meter.

    Also looking at an OMP suede wheel too. Kinda silly to have two but figure if the car keeps moving in a direction I did not originally intend might as well have a good race wheel. OMP is not as fun to say.

    Momo. Because it’s fun to say Momo

    I have the drones too. Car came with BB bullets.. Sounds amazing wide open and love the crack snap pop when decelerating, but DAMNNNNNNN, the drone is terrible. Most C6 guys go back the stock NPP exhaust. I am going to stick with this because I want to see what it sound like with headers and a cam.
  15. LS3 advice.

    Went to the track again wed night. This time to an old racetrack, Thompson Raceway that has been around for a long time. They are known for a national gasser race. Anyway, previous best was a 3.26 at 108.0. Last night I went 13.19 at 111.11. DA was about 2600 so not all bad considering. Still need tires, yep need tires. Sixty foots were 2.3.. and car was wheel hopping after hitting second gear. I had forgotten how much fun this is....
