Mallet Conversion. Maybe the LS7 over the LS2, not sure which one I can afford at this time. Like the carbon fiber hood, trunk, and wing kit being made too.

You mentioned you like the hood, trunk, and wing kit being made. Have you seen them? You have pics?

Also, did you leave a deposit with Malllet yet?

What mods (interior/exterior/performance) are you guys planning?
I plan on changing the turbo, increasing the psi, playing with the fuel injector, the computeur and that would be about it :cheers:
Maybe forged piston... but will see if the are reliable the way they are :lol:

First thing on my list will be to upgrade the driving lights. Get a HID kit in there so that I ca see at night. The in accordance with my friend above.. milk the turbo for all it's got.

Hmm..

Well, as for what i'm DEFINATELY doing..

Cold Air Intake
HID Conversion
Giovanna Rims
Pirelli Tires
1" drop
Replace front and rear speakers with MB Quarts

As for what i'm NOT sure yet..

Possibly a body kit.. but it depends what they look like, and what type of clearance I will have after already lowering it.

And I want to do something with the stereo. Every car I had, I made it into a competition system, but i'm not sure if that will be possible with the room in the SKY. I know I will replace all the stock speakers. But, I gotta see if I can maybe fit a bass tube, and 2 amps. I really don't want to change the stock headunit, because I like the look of it in the car. I'm wondering if the stock unit will have 2 preouts, or even one if it already comes with a amp, although I doubt the stock deck will have a sub preout. Then again, I heard possibly a sub will be optional, so maybe I can change the stock sub behind the seats with JL Audio sub or something. I'll probably end up changing the stock unit anyways.. which will suck!!. Does anyone know the details of the stereo in the car?

LS2/LS7 conversion kits?

I know this is a fantasy, but it would be great if someone offers LS2/LS7 conversion kits with crate motor and all the necessary hardware to do the job yourself. Just like, for example, in a supercharger kit. And Mallet has already confirmed that the stock tranny and differential can withstand +600HP. A ready made kit would save a hell of allot of money. But I guess there are too many variables, besides the tranny & differential, for such a kit to be possible.

first, alaram and I.C.E.
next, lower it maybe an inch.
maybe new wheels to match.
But, I'll stop there.
Too much money wasted on mods on previous/current cars. It's fun, but you don't get your money's worth on some mods. And the resale value is nothing if you want to switch out or upgrade.

Wheels seem like the easiest of all changes that can be made with out affecting the bodies beautiful curves.

Very true, however they're one of the easiest things to change that will also drastily alter the way the car handled and performs.

I will see what stock wheels they have availible before I ever consider changing them out. Most I might do is go wider at tire change time.

If you go wider you have to watch out for suspention components, depending on the design of them you may experiance rubbing.

Had that problem with my 1989 Nissan Pulsar. I went with 195/40 in front and 205/40 in the back. I made it about 2 miles down the road and had to turn around. On curves the car would lean and the tops of the tires would rub the shock towers. So long story less long I ended up with 195/40s all the way around. :)
