just fyi y'all. if u want to replace your turn signal bulbs with led bulbs. the front ones are 3157. whole the rears are 3057. ive had to return about 3 sets of leds due to that and other issues that i had before i found the right set.

I hear ya on the finals man, I can't wait to be done. As soon as I am, I'm doing my stereo, lighting, and a few other things I've waited on in a matter of a day or 2. Good luck on your tests!

Well its sorta hard to tell. When I got the car, the resonator had a hole in it. It does sound good when I hit the gas, better than my friends impala with the stock resonator. Both have the 3.8

Yeah I didn't relocate my o2 sensor, so there's still the restricted area in the exhaust. The res delete gives a subtle difference in the exhaust note. It won't be loud by any means, but does sound a bit more aggressive. Once I get a CAI in, I think the difference will be more noticeable

now that im in the land of wifi! aka college. i can upload pics of the mod. ill try to keep the pic sizes down.



pretty damn excited ngl lol and i kept my reverse lights! theyre not as cool lookin as they were cus i replaced them with some bright white leds.

i replaced all the turn brake and running lights with led bulbs. the turn and brake signal wire only sends 9v to the bulb so ill have to wire up a couple relays to make it 12v because the dif from runnin light to brake/turn signal is very minute.

next step is sequential but that wont b till summer.
