Posted: Wed Sep 07, 2011 9:31 am Post subject: Hello from Omaha,NE
Thought I would drop in and say hello and stop being a Lurker. I've had a 2001 Impala LS for some time now. It was my wifes daily driver but we just bought her a new car So I got this one. It has just over 160K miles and the only modification is a K&N intake that I bought 6 years ago before I even knew you could make your own. But The car is getting up there in miles and age and it just isn't worth taking it in to a stealership for work anymore so thats why I'm here. I'm no stranger to mofifying cars my last car was a 88 Volvo 240 that I Turbo charged using parts from a 90 740tic.
Planned mods now that I can play with the car and the wife won't yell at me.
- MC or GP dual exhaust with res delete.
- Replace the U bend with ZZP pipe or ZZP downpipe unit.
- ZZP HV3 intake insert and UIM replacement.
- Lowering springs with appropriate shocks and struts
- Window tinting 10-15%
- need to do something about those faded headlights and fog lights
And before I do all this I need to get a complete tune up done. O2 s, Plugs, wires, Etc.
Anyhow I look forward to talking with everyone and learning as much as i can.
hey Ive got one of those ZZP ubend deletes 4 sale, variousparts link in sig
welcome aboard BTW

Not a whole lot of issues. My transmissiono initially went out of 75,000 miles however looking back at it. It was probabaly the transmission pressure control solinoid. An ignition relay went bad, and at 160,000 My rediator has developed a crack and the cooling elbows have started leaking. So a complete Upper and lower intake gasket replacement as well and a coolant system over haul is in order. Other than that. the car has been good to me.
