You like that new body design, Stoli? I just can't seem to get over this older style


That all black layout must be an absolute nightmare to keep clean.
I wasn't a big fan any of them since the fox body (probably an age thing) and the '15 seems to have brought the styling into the modern day finally. As for the all black, my last 3 cars were all black, no biggie. The biggest pita are the wheels since these giant ass brakes shed so much dust they are dirty in an hour. New wheels are on order and ceramic pads will be coming soon to help with that.

Nice!!! Can't wait to see it all modded out. (And hear it too)

So man the power right off the bat must be night and day over the Optima huh?

Any chance you could take a video of the factory exhaust idle and rev? I'm curious how they sound stock.
I never did get a pre-exhaust vid, but here's a quick one with the Ford Racing/Borla Sport. Idle/3000/6000/7000/idle (redline 7200)


Cold start to idle:

F U, stoli! :raspberry: Haha Damnit I love that deeeep tone. People always ask me if I'll do an exhaust (just earlier today, in fact), and hellll to the nnnaaaawww. I haven't heard an exhaust that sounded good on the K5 (IMHO). So ricey/farty/bumblebee-ey to me, epecially when a 6+ cylinder vehicle rolls up. :lipsrsealed:

Lol. Not me.

Significant changes are new half shafts rated at 800whp from The Drive Shaft Shop.

This week I picked up a nitrous kit and will be installing and tuning for it in the next week or so. That should get me in the high 500's whp and low 600's wtq.

Custom headlights should be in next month.

Extra (wider) rear wheels with drag radials should also be here next month.

Some engine bay clean up / dress up for shows.

BlackView 650 2ch dash/rear cameras installed
