There were only 2,088 of these Indy editions made so I was just trying to find other owners of them. They are awesome cars and I have only had it for 3 days but I love it. Tell me your thoughts on it if you own one.

The original owner should have recieved a certificate from Chevrolet that was a picture of a 04 Impala Indy SS on the track at Indy that had the production # listed out of 4088. It had both signatures from one of the heads of GM I think and Tony George President of the Speedway.

You might be able to contact Chevy on their 800 # from their website and see if they can give you a production # or a repalcement certificate. I know their is a lady that works w/ GM as far as special edition Monte Carlos, but I don't know if she deals w/ Impalas or not.

I have one that I bought from a dealer in Macedon New York. He got it from an auction in Michigan. I was told that an executive from GM had it as a company car. It is the best car I have ever owned. We drive it alot, it has about 85,000 mi. on it. This car is FAST!!!!!!!!! How can I tell what production number it is?

how many ss indy

There were only 2,088 of these Indy editions made so I was just trying to find other owners of them. They are awesome cars and I have only had it for 3 days but I love it. Tell me your thoughts on it if you own one.
I also have an 04 Imp SS (indy limited edition), and soon after I purchased it (Oct of 05) I wrote G.M. and asked about production numbers on this particular edition. They wrote back and said there were 4088 produced and I have the 2556th unit. I live in California and I had it shipped by truck from Chicago; (sight unseen) Carmax found it for me and promised it was a pristine car. They were right. It had 15k miles on it, never wrecked, etc. I recently upgraded to 18" black, 5-spoke wheels with P245/45ZR18 Toyos. Also, I have added darker tint on all windows, including windshield. I installed a windscreen in front of the sunroof. It sure cut down the wind noise! I am planning on a [email protected] cold air intake with filter next. It supposed to increase H.P. by almost 14. I sometimes worry about the transmission, as it makes a high whine when it's cold. I have heard of problems with the standard Impalas, but I think the supercharged units have a stronger tranny. I have to research this....I've had my SS for 3 years and it never gets boring. I love it!

IIRC the only diff between the 4T65EHD and the 4T65E are
1. gear ratios 3.05/3.29 for N/A, 2.93 for S/C
2. from the diff out (pass side axle, diff, parking & sungear, etc)
It also has a larger TC/Flywheel, and lower stall speed on the TC

The trannys hold up very well on an UNMODIFIED (CAI/FWI/PCM still count as unmodded) car, once you go to smaller pullies, cam/rockers, etc they runinto issues. I beat the living snot out of mine, and the trans is only slipping. The only thing i have managed to break on the car are one pass side cv boot (burnouts @ the track most likely), and a wheel hub siezed on me. My clutches are slipping, but have been for oooo, almost a year and a half now :biggrin: Been putting that off till i finshed the engine build I'm working on. No sense pulling it twice ;)

if you ever need trans work done, i recommend http://www.tripleedgeperformance.com/ but being in cali, its a bit of a drive for you ;)

Difference between indy SS and just an SS

whats the difference between the 2004 Indy SS and the normal 2004 SS rather then just the stitching in the seats and the chrome rims and the badges...
