You don't need meth on a GMR S3 setup....

I rev'd to 7750rpm and my IAT2's always stayed in check. Even on hot days. Never did she pull timing due to heat.

Pick up a quality front mount or a griffin heat exchanger to run with your opt. b and dual pass endplate.

3 back to back dyno pulls showed how consistent my car was.

Finally have an SS

Hey folks. I've been on here for awhile with plans for an LNF SS to DD and replace my '03 Cavalier LSS. Ended up buying a 3rd car ( '00 Trans Am WS6 ) for play and kept the Cavy rolling. Finally I got some money around and decided to buy an affordable LSJ. It is a 2005 SOM SS with G85 pkg. Being G85 and orange sold me. The LSD and Recaro seats are awesome. I bought it from a guy in Erie P.A. on July 29th this year. It's been slightly problematic so far but it does feel smooth and nice. Had GMstg2, he put Sportline springs, longtube header/catless downpipe, Injen intake w/ AEM dry-flow, Jet MAF, black Depo headlamps, VIS carbon fiber hood, cheap crap poly mounts, and a SSBC brake kit on it. I suspect a aftermarket moonroof. It has a black mesh screen instead of a shade, and it closes automatically when open and shutting the engine off.

It needs a little work. I took it in for the ignition recall. I thought it was odd the P.O never had it done. He had removed the e-brake setup completely for the big brake kit. I want to reinstall an e-brake. The dealership claims they could not program the key fobs I ordered for it because the car does not have a keyless entry module factory… I find this hard to believe and paid for this diagnoses. I discovered the RPO code ( AU0 ) indicates RKE and I do not have that on my RPO sticker unfortunately. Guess I will need to find an aftermarket alternative. It also does not want to start early in the morning in the dew point, but cranks over perfectly fine in the day time. This is an annoying issue and i'm supposed to DD this. I did some research and found a thread of a gent having similar issues, turned out to be an engine block ground by the front trans mount, I’ll be looking into this. I still have my Cavalier but I want to sell it off here soon.

So far I have cleaned the throttle body,
double checked 'claimed' maintenance ( found 2 loose spark plugs and double checked gaps )needs a new intake filter, changed the fuel filter and cabin air filter. Car is running great when it runs now. That’s that. Here are some photos.

Bringing it home.





With my fun after-work driver.



After I tinted it 20%.



That's it for now.

ZZP S3 should do the trick. I ran the OTTP gen 4 front mount.

Also, I'd honestly stick with the S3 76mm pulley. It will support 300+whp.
