    500-600hp, nope. I want more and more torque actually for towing. I see you're listing that you are going to punch out the block, high CR flat tops, and LS3 heads, and LQ9 intake. Did someone tell...

    I've got an 06 1500 Z71 w/5.3L and 3.42 gears. Mine is the 5 speed. I hear the 6 speed helps and improves your effective gearing since 1st is lower on yours. So you might want to look at effective...

    I assume road courses? Road America? Blackhawk Farms? Autobahn?

    240SX is a popular car to build out. Very good autocross cars and very popular as drift cars. Haven't seen that many on road courses.

    Considering most owners don't bother to check their tires or know how/what to fill them. The Nitro is probably not a bad idea. It's more stable and the tires hold it better. I'm always amazed at how...

    I replaced the factory shocks on my 06 with Bilsteins. They give a very good ride. I also started towing my car behind it on a 18ft trailer. No problems. The shocks were about $300 for the set.

    I disagree. 1 3/4" primaries for a 6.0L would be fine. The optimum header primary size is 1.63 inches inside diameter, given peak torque RPM of 4,000.00 and an engine displacement of 366 cubic...
