I would be tempted to upgrade if it were a manual......the auto is the only thing I truly hate about my car.

I actually quite like the auto. The only thing I don't like is the response time to my command to shift. Other than that I prefer it over a manual when racing it.

That's the plan. Z51 with magnetic suspension. At least a year off though.

Been away from the site awhile, decided to start up a bar shortly after buying car, and devoted all my time to start it. Bar still a couple months away from opening but it means I now have time to mod my car finally.

First up, full exhaust. Would love to see about listening first hand some different options. So next time people meet up, I will come on out. Also will have an open invitation for people to come over for a free drink at my bar once open so I can hear some different options up close. If you like beers other than the big breweries, I got you covered. If you like Bud/Miller etc...I can help with that problem...Just kidding, I drink that as well from time to time.

Then will immediately get a Vararam and a tune to compliment the mods and will probably move onto some new wheels.

Here's to a good year of modding.

2009 LR GT. Bone stock for now.

Sounds awesome! I hope STL has a meet soon when it warms up next month, I'm just about to start weekends (Th-Su 11AM-730PM) at the park that won't finish till Nov.

Well if your looking for a catback system for cheap, I saw a Borla CB on craigslist STL for only $550.

Thank. Into the hearing before buying. Learned that when I had my Mustangs (Gt and Cobra). Was always the first to jump in with exhausts and spent too much money swapping out pieces. Now want to hear some setups and see if I can get a better feel before buying.

It will be called The Crafty Chameleon. Sign guy is still working on the sign. We took over the spot when Chevy's moved out....split it in half. Beer bar on one side, and a restaurant on the other. Our bar will be strictly a beer bar, with a license to brew our own later on. And the restaurant to be named later.

Will have roughly 40+ on tap and 300+ bottles/cans.

We will be open hopefully within a couple months. Lots of construction going on inside.

thanks.

Well you have come to the right place because I don't think any of us in this area have the exact same exhaust set-up.

You can use these links to get somewhat of an idea until we have an actual meet...

Absolutely. Plenty of parking on that spot.

Thanks for posting the vids. Great audio, got me some decent ideas. Can't wait to hear some up close. And looks like the meets are a little short on liquid reds....I can fix that

Thanks again.

We WERE short on Liquid Reds until the past couple months, we have 2 or 3 now I think, and picked up a lot of Ryans too, lol.

That video is a very accurate view of the exhausts, but we'll definitely need to get a meet so you can hear them. We lost the Corsa exhaust though...

Seems like the Civic of G8's in STL (SBM) has also gone down in count.
