    Default She's going under the knife this weekend!

    The time has finally arrived!

    The GXP (Wheel Hopper 2000 to some of you) is going to undergo a transformation over the next couple of weeks. I'm dropping it off tomorrow night and when I get her back, it will be a totally different car. Hopefully it'll have around 120-150 more rwhp.

    Fuel system upgrade + TVS 2300 =

    I'm nervous and excited.
    SOLD: 2009 Maverick Silver G8 GXP M6
    Current Vehicle: 1984 Chevy K10 (it's red and redneck)
    New Vehicle: 1972 2wd K5 Blazer. It's being built right now. Link to the build is HERE

    Aftermarket. I don't have all of the details as far as parts but I have a good rough idea of what is being done.
