Default The Grond Chronicles : What should my next mod be?

Yes, yes, yes, I know, I know. I am still in the midst of several mods......

1> New LS2 engine transplant in a few weeks resplendent with a truly insane cam
2> Tigershark front fascia to install, paint etc.
3> Stereo amp rack to complete and imaging to adjust.
4> Front and rear cameras to install
5> Bling wheels to finish and install with new rubber
6> Candy apple red brake pedal still to install
7> V1 remote installed in HUD
8> Still adjusting the coilovers and suspension
and so on....

- BUT -

In typical EG fashion, I'm already plotting and planning my next mods after I get these completed over the next few weeks.

- SO -

What should EG mod next????

Go for the rear mounted STS twin turbo setup. Buddy of mine has this on his F body and is putting down 600rwhp on low boost (around 8 or 10 psi if I'm not mistaken with a 408 ci). There's nothing like forced induction!

Put some C6 Z06 brakes on that BEAST to stop it! Going forward quickly is only fun if you can stop it!

Can you Please post up some pics of your V1 in the hud install when you get it finished? That sounds VERY COOL!

Actually, I have not. No real point in doing it as I am waiting for the C6 Z06 brakes to become widely available.

Worth thinking about. It's on my short list of power adders

I change my answer to C6 Z06 brakes before the VE interior.

while I love the massive dished wheels that comes with those kits, I do not want to spend that kind of money and not go a LOT faster.
