I think those of us without Maggies should get a lawyer and file a class action against those who own them. After all, they have been taunting us for months with their stories of power gains and exotic kills. They have forced us to look at pictures of their polished intakes and fancy pulleys.
This isn't fair! They know, or should know, that such displays, made to a bunch of speed freaks and mod whores, can have only one result: driving us insane. Its like a casino handing out marketing literature at a Gamblers Annonymous meeting. To quote Johnny Cochrane, "It's ridiculous, preposterous, outrageous!"
We are victims. Its time to make them pay!:stirpot:
They do. I bought my car bone stock in JULY,..since then,..I lowered it before I even made it all the way home after I bought it,....intake manifold, ported throttlebody, ram air, cam, springs retainers, HID's, flywheel, clutch, diff brace, exhaust, shocks,brakes/slotted rotors., painted wheels.three sets of rear tires....hurst shifter,....ofcourse tint....tuneing... and alot of time and little stuff.
....all that and everyone here ate work asks me when I am going to stop, when is enough, enough?
I said the sky is the limit,...not to mention my limited budget .....I have a goal to make serious power,...and to me, right now, 400rwhp isn't enough power.
Dammit,...I can't wait to use these turbo's I have sitting in my tool box. :yup:
Who knows. Even with a 2.8 pulley, you should easily expect >100HP.
427rwhp is a heck of a ride though. I say enjoy that and make V owners proud. Adding a maggie on top of that...sheesh...see Lawfive's post above whereby your next mods might be repair after repair after repair, after repair...
I'm not sure, but I thought that there was a thread that suggested that going well over 200HP was a potential cause for concern for the motor. Are you sure the bottom end will take that much power? :bomb:
Mod 1: New rear end
Mod 2: New rear end
Mod 3: Maggie
Mod 4: StealthV Tune
Mod 5: 2.8" pulley
Mod 6: Plastic surgery - remove S. E. G. from face
Mod 7: 2.6" pulley
Mod 8: More plastic surgery...and therapy for the poor bimmerbastard that just doesn't believe it.
Well I guess it might be a bit to much if I do the blower. Anyone know if it could take the added power? or will I be looking at a lot of problems? Were does the power start for the maggie? Mine feels like stock till 4k rpm then it pulls like a monster.
Here is a description of how to replace the front differential bushing with an Energy Suspension 3.2125R 1-3/4" OD Rear Frame Shackle for Chevy Truck. Cost is about $20 (amazon). This is very easy and the fit is great. The only drawback it removing the exhaust if you live in the rust-belt...
I have mentioned it here and here in different posts, but figured I'd throw it all down here since I'm draining and flushing the system after the thermostat got stuck. I had lost my notes I previously took when I did this the first time 4 years ago. During the interim time it got drained and...
It's been more than a while since I've posted. Still have the V1. Still runs super strong, but needs some new shocks.
I just had all my brake lines fixed, and now its time to refresh the shocks on the old girl.
I had FG2's for about 100k miles, and they were great, but...
I wanted to run wider tires in the rear of my V1. I read a lot online about Weldcraft. There's plenty of discussion about whether welded aluminum wheels are strong enough, which I think is a valid concern. But, I couldn't find any info about tolerances. Like, are the wheels still going to be...
Hi all! So just upgraded my 05 CTS V to the LS7 clutch because the dual mass flywheel was causing some crazy vibrations.
The car runs very smooth, all went well, however now the car seems to make more noise now from about 2500 rpms and above. It sounds like the car has headers now!
Here is a...
