    Pretty minor stuff for me. Different lower pulley to up the boost a bit, JLT intake, and possibly have kurgan tune it in the spring. Other than that my only plans are to have some stuff painted and focus on cleaning the car up a bit.

    how many mod motor guys tune their own stuff?

    seems like 1/3 of the LS guys do their own tuning but around here seems like everyone uses kurgan for their mod motors

    Im not sure to be honest. Currently my car is tuned by the previous owner and a friend of his out of Dallas, TX who seems to do pretty decent job. I wouldn't mind diving in and learning how to do it myself but I have no where near enough knowledge on tuning and it's tough to beat someone like kurgan who has a great rep. for mod motor tuning

    Not much for me either . New motor, building a terbeaux kit, building new motor mounts, new transmission mount, new frame rails, new diff cradle, a cage, new seats and harnesses, insulation / carpet / headliner, and potentially a spray bar for the transmission.

    It will be a miracle if I get it all done!

    doesn't sound fun. my turbo kit, roll bar, solid rear and forged motor were all done in separate seasons and i still got burned out
