Deal went through last night, saw the car this past Sunday at a Show and Shine, my wife fell in love with the color, and i jumped at a chance to get into a Ls1. So far the car came with long tubes, tsp y pipe, ported throttle body, lid, grantelii maf ends. Here you go.....

Nice.

But I am almost positive that the way they lifted your car is not good for our cars. This is putting pressure on different areas such as the plastic block that mounts the front fenders. Tell em to use a jack if they don't have a 4 point lift.

look under the car right behind the front tire at the bottom of the fender, if those tabs are bent it could gap your ffender, it can be bent back but thats not a place for a jack, nice car though

This is true if they just lifted it straight up. However, if they used thick rubber blocks under the pinch welds (not under the plastic area for the front fender), everything will be fine. It would be like a 4 pt lift or using 4 floor jacks. I used to work at Discount tire for 6 years. I would know.

Let her drive them ALL THE TIME!!!!, i couldnt ask for a cooler wife, on our way to the Big O, we ran both the cars, she had the ls1, i was in the lt1, you can check out that thread in the street and kills thread.

Just for fun (maybe we should start a thread like this)"Significant others doin work"

Congratulations on the purchase. :cheers: I'm another big fan of that color. Women that appreciate cars (especially cars that guys like) are certainly the marrying type. I should know, going on our 35th anniversary this year. I don't think I would have liked marrying a woman with no interest in cars, or worse yet, the type that says 'that car has to go' or 'it's me or that car'. Seen that far too many times from others. Sad....:(

I agree, i got lucky with mine, back when me and my wife were dating, i decided to take her to a car show , i parked got some stuff out of the car, looked around and couldnt find her, look around on the other side and she was on her hands and knees cleaning my rims...haha, had to marry her:cheers:
