Looking good, always did love the dual exhaust! I plan on getting that project done some day... lol. You thinking about debadging the trunk emblem? Would look way cleaner in the back, and I would get rid of the shark fin thingy if I were you.

well yesterday was +10 out thought it was great day to the salt off the car. then i wake up to see it wanting to snow so went out grabbed some shots, white specs and lines are snow not marks on my car, scared me at first lols.





And a new exhaust video, this is 08 SS exhaust with no resonator a year after installment, sounds lil more toned down then my first videos.

That exhaust sounds great on your car! Amazing how much better it makes the 3.8 sound.

I met up with Will from overkill today and he drove my car around for 1.5 hours tuning away. He is a great guy to talk to and i learned so much from him! AND he got my gm stock anti theft system shut off so now im not stuck with my key on the "on" position for 10 minutes as the car relearns my key! that saved me few hundred right there!
I'm just amazed how different the car feels intown driving, shifts are quick but not harsh, stays and in the correct gear while going up hill or slightly accelerating. he even gave me some new tweaks he been trying and say work great for the tranny at highway speeds! and best is when you slam the pedal to the floor the car gets up and goes!
Another thing that was funny that for the first bit he was driving and tuning on 87 octane tune, he pulled over and then said "everything looks great lets put the 91 tuning in" i didnt say anything but i was I thought for sure it was already on 91 octane tune, when he took off WOW is all i got to say. when i got the car to myself i brought the car to 160km and was grinnin ear to ear .dont know what else to say but awesomeness!
I am 1000% satisfied and cant wait to slap a HV3 in to keep that powerband going up into redline.

Nice find and I've been thinking of getting my PCM re-tuned for 91 octane from him. Just want to throw this out there but you should do what I did on the muffler and pipes under there..paint em black. satin black. you'll be very happy you did.

just finished a full tank of gas with overkill 91 octane custom tune, checked DIC said 10.w/e litres per 100 km. and thats 80% in town 20% out of town.
used a google litre to gallon converter and got 23.5 mpg and i have not been nice to the gas pedal.

How many miles did you get to a tank? In town I can only do about 35-45 mph but before I get to town and what not, everywhere else is 55mph. I'm not nice to my gas pedal either lol, I get about 18ish mpg but recently I've been strapped for cash so I've been running 87 instead of 89 like usual...if I get it re-tuned though I'll definitely run 91 every fill up.
