well, i'm picking up 19" vsxx's because these 17's are wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy too small.. lol

gonna go on air, L-tuned side skirs, (idk rear lip), 5zigen or fujitsubo or custom 3" exhaust.. and after this motor goes to heaven, i'm going to do an LSx swap.

Why an LSx and not A 2JZGTE?

well, i'm still on the fence about doing either..

just right now i'm leaning towards an lsx swap because i don't really want to go turbo as of yet.

i boosted the tc, and my car got caught on fire.. lol (a bit traumatized)

I agree!17 vs-xx are way too small for the gs! we need at least 19's!

Where are you going to pick up your 19 vs-xx?

Whats up your tail pipe in the last pic? Not a fan of the stickers either but otherwise clean.

Gs should turn out good.

but yeah, BIG BIG plans for the gs.. it's just an entirely new money pit lol
