Dunno what else I'm gonna do, I think first I need to get this shit eatin' grin surgically removed from my face!
Next, well I have a MOMO knob ready..waiting for the hurst shifter if its any good. I'm also gonna put on a Halltech intake when I see the new ones. I gotta tell you guys, this thing is a BEAST. The sound at idle is nice, and at 70-80mph is barely noticeable. BUT let me tell you, when you punch it up over 3k rpms,(which I havent done much of due to break-in) Its MUCH louder than the B&B Triflo I had on my coupe, its unreal. NO WAY am I gonna change the exhaust.

You guys would not believe the stares I have been getting over the last two days. Nobody ever noticed the red coupe I had, but people are going nuts over this yellow Z. I have had 5 separate guys try to race me and I only have 260 miles on the car. Funny thing is that 4 of them were mustangs! Are these guys on crack? Hell only one of them was a GT! I wouldn't give them the pleasure needless to say...they are probably on the rustang board saying "came up on a 2002 Z06..he didn't want none!"

Dog, you gotta lower that bad boy some so it fills up the wheel wells. Don't lower quite as far as the bolts will allow, but close. Ride will not be affected. That car of yours looks SWEET! /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif

I was thinking of the laser cut stainless steel lettering...It would match the look of the chrome and the Z06 emblem. What do you guys think?

The Haltech would make that baby scream, I couldn't believe what it did to my 01.

I'd give a nod to the stainless letters. I'd probably tint the windows too. That is a beautiful machine! /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif
