I've waffled a bit, but my gut feeling is, I'll be happiest with this car long term if I keep it stock. There's plenty of power on tap, it just needs to be made more responsive. The A/T solenoid bypass helped a ton with that, so now I'm turning my attention to "adding lightness" wherever possible. I think at sub-3500 lbs (cutting 120 lbs or so), it'll be about as good of a balance of performance, comfort, and maintenance-free reliability as I can hope for.

I've cut 30-50 lbs so far -- the big range being due to a few things that haven't been weighed, since I don't have the original items to compare to (wheels, bigger battery, stock head unit, trunk carpet, etc.) -- and have an easy 40+ lbs additional lined up. After that, it gets a bit tougher, especially up front where less can be removed. Every little bit counts!

W58 Swap finally done. Only to find out the flywheel I had resurfaced is unbalanced. Car still drives and shifts smooth but some slight vibration. But I'm shifting gears baby...

Finally got the gumption to pull all the blue caps off of everything in the center console. Now EVERYTHING is bright orange instead of glowing swamp green. Truly a satisfying free mod....especially when you're driving in the dead of night to work every morning.

Finally found someone in Atlanta that has an alignment machine low enough for me to get on

Alignment = Drives 10x Better
