Decided to start my own thread since I cannot update the page anymore. I have slowed down a little on my modding - good thing for my wallet. This is an awesome car to mod. I guess everyone who starts this has a supposed "finishing" point. In reality I don't see that happening.

For some reason I'm not a big V8 upgrade fan. I have to admit I do love that sound though. I like the possibility of pushing the 4-banger to it's limit. The engine already has the potential to hit HP levels that torque the heck out of the car. My only regret is that someday I will not be able to mod it anymore. But then I should be 6 feet under by that time. ;)

I am starting to get the bug to mod the wife's Sky, but she says no. I think I will sneak and at least to the GMPP tune on her car. :thumbs:

Nice list

It never ends . . .

Why the flyswatter over a nice custom illuminated WR? I understand that some people actually like them but for different reasons

I really like the mesh look. I've seen Z3/4 and other verts with their own and I just like the look. The Sky will get a WR for sure. But mine being black, I agree with others that the flyswatter looks nice.

Well I finally believe I can make the changes to this thread with the car in its current modded state. Dave and his crew did an awesome job with the car - this was a total rebuild, almost a new car. The power I had before this round of modding was great, no comparison now - the car really kicks azz now... On to figuring out what to do next? EFR-7163 next maybe? 6-speed transmission? Smoothline?

Pardon my ignorance, but is the EFR-6758 currently installed or is that one of the "To Do" items?

Everything in the bolded text was installed/performed by DDM this time round. So yes, it is installed and I should have the car Sunday morning-ish. >:)
