    Street outlaws

    Seems like the show makes sure the NO guys have a big home field advantage. They have probably been down that road a 100 times and know exactly how much power the road can handle. I don't remember seeing the NO guys go on the road to other states like the the OKC guys did, probably because...

    Buicks @Mecum

    For the price of a headliner(around $150) and the price to install ($150??) I would have done it to a $80k + car before going to the auction, maybe they want to show its all original for the next owner to fix? I did the headliner in my Ttype last year and its not too dificult, just takes time...

    You Know You Drive A Turbo Buick When...

    The mechanic inspecting it sees the dump pipe, shakes his head, and slaps the sticker on it anyway. You keep telling your wife "its going to be a collector car one day worth twice as much"

    2012 Buick LaCrosse 1/4 Times

    No 3800lb FWD car with 249HP is doing 12.9, would think 15.9 is more like it. Look at the Sonata, 3400lbs with 275HP is doing 14.5 BTW, I just picked up a 2.0T Sonata Limited last month to replace my dying 98GS, nice overall car with some spunk, especially at highway speeds:D

    Bumper fillers - ABS vs. fiberglass

    Also have the Danko's, fronts were a good fit, the rears were a little off in certain places. If your looking for perfect fit you will need to do some work to these but a driver type car these are fine.

    Parts car:( Unless your very ambitious or have a parts car with a decent interior available, $2-3k, who rebuilt the engine and trans? I've seen much better cars on here that were parted out and could have been saved, wonder how bad the frame and underneath items could be:rolleyes:

    Pontiac GTP Help

    Jack that side up and see if there is any play in the wheel, I know on mine I have much more play on the side I'm replacing then the other side where the bearing and tie rod was done over a year ago, but sometimes its hard to tell just by doing this test. If its original and your car has higher...

    Pontiac GTP Help

    When I had I think that same problem with the GS it was the stock plug wires, I replaced the coil packs at the same time also, both MSD. Your vibration is most likely one of your axle\wheel bearings going or possibly your tie rod going out, mine vibrates above 65mph. I just ordered both for...

    The typicall supercharger kit($6,500) to a stock C5 usually gets 550rwhp with a complete exaust. Heads and cam on top of that- another 100hp ? After that it gets really expensive:eek: Seriously thinking about one of these kits on my 04' next year:biggrin:
