I'm curious about what your plans are for your 2009 V. I am excited to see some serious modding in this forum once these cars start getting delivered!

1. Staying bone stock forever
2. Staying stock until warranty is up
3. Just wheels and tint, other appearance mods
4. I'll do some modding as long as I can keep my warranty (exhaust, etc)
5. Forget warranty, I want more power! Mod hell here I come!

Its been said that the engine has another 10% in it for tuning.

Between tune, exhaust and tints..thats all I will do.:lildevil::lildevil:

Chris,
You know we luv ya, just can't get comfy with that Taxicab you drive-JFWY!!!!

Back on topic, why mod it, except for exhaust and tune which may get you to 600bhp. It is the total package, buy a V1 and go 440ci with TTs if you want mad power. Of course you can always disprove everyone and figure out a way to complete a pulley swap to get you way past 600,,,

Badcad... You're sending mixed messages..lol, you ask why mod it? But you're sig says "Life is to short not to visit Mod Hell"... you're conflicted... but I totally agree, just a nice exhaust setup would suffice

:alright:

It looks at least some of you are planning on doing some cool stuff, I am looking forward to see what you can pull out of this car.

V2 is a much more powerful vehicle than the V1, but you are probably right, as if I got the V2 it would not stay stock. I do think the motor and SC on the V2 are sufficient, no need to mess with either, except for the pulley swap temptation.

It will be interesting to see what authorized stuff GM offers for the car that can be added and not affect it's warranty.

Yeah, if you take a close look at the pulley, it definitely is not integral - it is removable. For those of you goin to Monticello next week, they have a cutaway engine sittin in the main building. Take a look at it. Easily pulled off.

I'm pretty sure everyone can guess my stance on this one, but in case you haven't figured it out... MOD IT TO HELL! Leave nothing untouched! If it ain't broke, you can probably still fix it and if it breaks, it needed replacing anyway.

Pulley Tune and exhaust and maybe in future put big pulley on and run compound boost. Block should handle more then ls3 and they push 7 to 800 without a problem as long as tune is safe will be fine and same goes for pistons. Don't get greedy keep it rich and you will never blow it up.
