Holy shit...

God help the poor bastard that has to change a starter on one of those.

I wonder what other engine factories are like - is the factory where LSxes are made all quiet and clean like that? I always imagine LSxes being assembled by sweaty rednecks in a dark pit.

I think this engine comes out of the car for just about anything that needs doing to it, lol.

Nevertheless, God help the poor bastard that has to change a starter. Even after you do get that thing out of the car, it looks like half of the engine's parts have to be removed in order to access it.

Oh, it's been a little nicer out during the day than I expected, so I've been driving the fuck out of her. I figured it'd be shitty out and I'd just be driving to work and back, but I've already put on 750 miles.

Still no sustained full throttle stints above 5k RPM, but I've blipped above 7k and engine braked down from 6.5k quite a few times.

The warmer weather can't get here fast enough. I'm still a little nervous on summer tires w/ the cold weather and hard cornering. I was fucking around on a back road and standing on the brakes had the ABS engaging more than I thought it should -- but it was like 30 degrees out, so, summer tires and low temps probably wasn't helping traction.

edit -- and I just got my insurance bill in, it's cheaper to insure than the wife's Q5?! But, I have more years in force on the policy than she does, so get a higher tier discount. Still, only about $900 a year!?!

I am noticing that as well. Below about 38 it is noticeable and very noticeable below 35 on my Nitto NT05s.

Congrats! I love the new ride!
