Hello, I just joined up on the recommendation from ZSPOT whom I talk to multiple times within a week but didn't know he was a moderator on this forum.

I started out in the W-body world a few years ago with a 1990 Grand Prix STE Turbo which was a lot of fun, but sold it to try to get my car count within reason.

I now have a 05 Impala SS that I bought a few months ago.
Here are some pics:

Can't wait to contribute to the forum.
Any comments welcomed.

Agreed. At least since I live in a construction zone and couldn't keep mine clean if my life depended on it Laughing

I was actually wanting a blue one when I was looking, but couldn't find one within 500 miles, so I went with the silver one. It's actually growing on me quite a bit. The taillight overlay sold me on it.

Thanks for all the compliments.

I guess I should list mods, as long as I can remember what I've done so far:
Wizaired CAI
Front and rear GMPP strut braces
Intense PCM
ZZP 3" Downpipe with Magnaflow converter
ZZP MPS with 3.5" Pulley- before you rip on me for not going 3.4 I wanted to go conservative until the car is paid off then get heavier with the mods. Laughing
Goodyear Eagle F1 All Season tires- newly installed.

Not that it's all that important, but since it's my intro thread here are some of the other vehicles in and from my stable:

S10- lowered 2/4, ZQ8 wheels, and ZQ8 front swaybar. will have a ZQ8 steering gear whenever I can find a p/s reservoir for a 2.5 Duke S10.

1994 Honda Magna- it is now without the windshield


1991 Beretta GT traded in for the Impala. 210K on the clock, and drove to Springfield MO to trade it with no worries.


Grand Prix Turbo STE- one of 1000

It's OK, I like the change in trans pressure, it firmed up the shifts a bit. I had to send it back in a month ago to get the rear o2 codes removed, and the trans felt like a slushbox with the stock PCM comparatively.
I didn't notice a night and day difference in performance aside from the higher shift points. I was mostly after the fan turn on changes for the colder t-stat. It was worth the money, but after the mods go much further I'll be shopping around for a custom tune. Luckily that won't be for a long time.
