Looked at GM parts direct couldn't find it?
They have the GMPP FE2 suspension package listed for 1,065.75
GM PART # 17800834
GM Parts Direct: 17800834 - Solstice and Sky suspension upgrade package
I've put this on 2 cars. Basically, it's GXP sway bars & links plus a different shock. The shocks are stiffer and they have the same spring rate as the ZOK package. It's a Good Thing(tm).:thumbs:

Shock PNs:
Front Shock 88965295 Code C388
Rear Shock 88965296 Code C390

I'm getting some work done on my '07 in October and looking to get the shocks rebuilt since I haven't had any luck finding them by themselves and not part of the GMPP package.

It's great that you've found all these cams, but what about true numbers in performance from ones that have been installed? Otherwise it's just numbers and parts to many of us!

They're only possibilities. I've started kicking the idea around about a ground up build. Aiming for around 450-500 hp so I've been digging up sources and doing research, I've been finding more lower end parts then upper. It helps that the engines from 2006 to early 2007 had a good many forged parts. Found companies that will do head work but no aftermarket heads that includes intakes. I found ideas for a bigger throttle body or I should say a bored out OEM.

I'm thinking 2.4 to be different. As the old saying goes "No replacement for displacement". That's a little silly considering that I want to use a four cylinder, :lol:

I have no desire to mod my 2.4 but am very interested in this. I hope you go thru with it and am can't wait to hear the results. Keep us posted.

Had a lot of time on my hands while international fixed the semi and I was stuck in VA. I found this at crate engine depot pay close attention to the "note" . So it looks like there is one aftermarket can for LE5 without getting blanks from GM and having them custom ground. :(

88958648 Performance camshaft kit for increased power in naturally aspirated and turbocharged engines. • For increased power in naturally aspirated and turbocharged engines • Duration @ 0.050" lift is 247° on the intake and 249° on the exhaust • Maximum lift is 0.499" for the intake and 0.499" on the exhaust • Lobe centerline is 116°

Note: The GM Performance Parts ECOtec cam set (88958648 set or 88958636/7 individually) is an aggressive race cam. They are not stock-replacement cams; they require upgraded valve springs and retainers. These cams were designed for a race motor, using the ‘06 L61 as the starting point. The cams will not fit the 2.4L LE5 head and will not work with the stock ECM or lifters. They physically fit the 2.0L LSJ head, but the vacuum pump / cam sensor will not work in a stock engine.
