hi dude, long time no see smile.gif, thats nice car u got there, how does it drive compare to ur previous 2 SS's? i heard VT feel bit heavier then the VN-VS models. very nice starting point^^ with LS1, u know the limit for LS1 u can stroke to 7Litre, that is some ground thumping power if u go that far. i think for 500+ horse power u dont need to really go for twin turbo setup, icon4.gif , just simple low boost supercharger will take u there with no problems, and simple installation too. but if u plaining to go much further or if u wanna go for 1000HP+ then twin turbo is the way to go. (LS1 is got lots of potential. looking forward to see what u can do with that beast).

chat to u later^^

Compared to the VN-VS models, the VT is bigger but as far as performance goes, my R8 floats like a butterfly! There's so many things u can do 2 the LS1 and that's my main problem, where do u start?!
As 4 forced induction, a TWN TURBO V8 already sounds wicked b4 the key is even turned!

where do u start? thats a tough Question for each and everyone of us petrol heads. i started with wheel and suspension, and look at me now@@. it was a dream to own a big V8 back then, but i managed to get a nice V8 at the end. how do i get it? i dont know, just DREAM BIG, then plan how u reach that dream smile.gif.

i think its better to plan out what u really want at end of the day, then do things from there, or else will end up replacing things u done, over and over again. smile.gif i guess thats the best way to save ur pocket from burning a big hole.

my pockets? hole is big enough to put ur fist through, BOTH SIDES~, HAHAHA.

I've been doin a bit of homework and frm the looks of things I guess I'll b goin down the supercharger route. It's easier (cuz its all bolt-on) and it's closer 2 my budget. That'll happen when I sew up the hole in my pocket! Can I borrow ur needle & thread once u've finished sewing both ur pockets up or wat?!?!

Posted by: hotsv1 on July 20, 2006 [ Car Profile ]

I think supercharger is less work too, becuase lot of supplier have the kit that just fit on, with mild supercharge u will get 500hp without problem with LS1.
need to be careful on ur brake department too, becuase if u can go faster, that means u need to stop faster too.
my pocket? oh~~ one fixed then other one broke, never can fix up. so i need my needles constently. however, there is faster way to fix, STAPLE together~.
only way to fix up the pocket, sell the car~.

This is just a shout out to all those people who disrespect other people's cars, GET A LIFE!!! In the past month, 2 of my mates have had their cars' (pardon my French) f*%ked with and it angers me knowing that there's little they can do about it other than suffer the consequences of having a nice, modified car.
So as I said before, anyone thinking of touching other people's car in a manner other than desired by the owner, think again... who knows, yours might just be next!
