    but if you give it that extra 25 HP or more than it will meet or exceed that.

    ryannel2003 - Who said anything about our car's being race cars??? My other ride is an 04 Z06 so I know our cars are NO WHERE NEAR race performance. I just wanna compete with Audi and BMW.

    Re: STSi?

    The unfortunate thing about these cars is they are heavy pigs. The only BMW and Audi we can beat is the 6 cylinders. The V8's in the others are much faster due to the 200-300lb weight difference and the fact that Seville is FWD. A BMW 540i does 0-60 in 5.5 seconds, a Lexus GS400 is 6.0 (GS430 5.7) so there is no way our cars can possibly beat these, and that is especially true in the corners. The FWD limits many other things beyond handling.

    If a 540i ever pulls up next to me, I'm not going to embarrass myself. However, if a 528i or 530i, well...

    Ah yes... If you give it the 25HP now its a tie.

    But keep in mind anything that you can do to your car will have an equivalent (or even better) benefit to the VIN 9. The SLS motor it built and has its cams set up to make more bottom end torque. if your goal is horsepower you started with the wrong model.

    The best car to start with will be a VIN 9 W/Z rated car.. these have prove over and over to have the best tune and produce the best numbers... Do a Cat "delete" and Corsa system on one of those and now you are talking!

    Re: STSi?

    I chose the SLS because it had just about every option, good miles, and it was 7,000. I didn't know the difference between the SLS and STS at the time. But I'm making my SLS last until I get out of college and then that's gonna be my project car. Im doing so major work on it that is gonna cost about 20k at least. but when it's done it'll be able to run with Porshe, Corvette, Aston Martin, and all them turbo blenders.

    It's a huge project so it's gonna take AWHILE to complete but Im going to Automotive College to learn how to do it and more.

    2000 Cadillac Seville SLS with an engine swap (7.0 LS7 V8), Z06 T56 6spd Manual gearbox, Heavy duty Ford rear ends to convert to RWD, Upgrade to Magnaride, Dual Piston Calipers, Steel re-enforce sway bars, and many many many more.

    Like I said it'll be a long time so please dont say rag on me saying it cant be done cause anything can be done if you have the $$$ for it.

    Why the hell would you go with a "heavy duty ford rear end"?
    You must be drunk.

    Re: STSi?

    KDSEVILLE, If you want to race all you have to do is ask. We can meet up at a 1/4mile track somwhere. The STS is ready...

    all i have is exhaust.

    Just meet me half way.

    Back to topic:
    Id buy the STSi for that price. To bad you cant drive the STSi on the road tho. Id be very happy to swap the stuff to another street legal car. Thats what cars were made for, ''driving''.

    Ya I would have posted prior to sale if I could have. I was real surprised it went for no more. I know there would have been some interest from those here.

    Dude, you forgot the

    You chose the absolute WORST platform for your supposed project...do you even know what goes into it...apparantly not as 'youre going to automotive college' to figure it out. You know what a crate LS7 goes for? more than your car is worth....and as for the tranny....hoo hah, good luck with that. there isnt even a tranny tunnel in the FWD STS....that interior is gonna be sweet to strip out completely whlie you weld a tunnel into it....fun stuff. Oh, and that 50K youre about to shell out for parts/time, etc...why not just keep it in your dads bank account and spare him the agony of your automotive aspirations.
    This ranks high on the 'tard scale....enjoy your standing!
