I bought a Silver 05 a few days ago. The crappy part is i am waiting for the automotive delivery truck to arrive any minute. So i haven't driven it yet :-( but it is payed off and on the way. I decided i was gonna save money for this car about 1.5 years ago, and i finally got the money to do it. I have been using this forum as a reference for wut to expect for over a year, and man has it helped. Thanx guys! oh..its got a Maggie!

i am coming from a 350z so i figured i wud show it love and post a pic.

Congrats and welcome. When it arrives I am gonna need to see better pics of how your FRC's are attached around the Maggie. Thanks in advance.

What does it say under the V emblem on the fender?

So how much more hp does the black one have over the silver? haha. So this is my first forced induction car. Any tips or things i should look out for? or regular recommended maintenance specifically for the maggie? thanx for the warm welcome.

Congrats!!

Does it have FG2's (Optional Shock Package) or Shifter Bushings.?

Dunno about Flowmaster Cat-Back, might wanna check up on that - also Eibach Coilovers - Its either Ground Control (which uses Eibach Springs) or KW for coilovers for these Cars.

Sounds like you got a nice little setup there... Not much else to do. Save up your Money for Speeding Tickets not Mods :thumbsup:


I guess Sway Bars - Z06 Endlinks for suspension - Maybe a Meth Kit if you wanna cool down your temps a bit - Oh yea Upgrade to the CTS center Console - Just got mine and I LOVE it, much better than the stocker.

so, im looking at the receipts right now. maggie, denso 1 step cooler spark plugs, uuc aluminum flywheel, Ground Control coilover conversion, bmr anti hop, b&b headers, MAGNAFLOW exhaust, uuc shifter and bushings. no receipt of the intake but i know thats wut it is due to the more sticker. haha. i think that covers it.

Just Drive It! That things is good to go... Nice Mods! The Previous Owner had good taste! Did it come with a Dyno Graph.. Do you know if its been Pro Tuned or just Flashed with the Maggie Software?

it came with a graph making 427rwhpand 402rwtq a year ago so i dont think all the mods were done yet..im gonna assume i could use a better tune. i wanna be at 450 to the wheels.

Sounds like it came with everything.

Have the pedals been changed?

With the maggie it's like owning your own ride at Six Flags. :thumbsup:

Replace the CORSA with a full up B&B system and then let her hear it..:yup:

(hint: she won't hear the maggie).

I drive 23 miles each way to work at 78mph so I spend a LOT of time at 2100rpms and I dont like drone.

Kooks LTs are my next purchase, ut no idea when it will be.
