    New toy - Hyperion... Intel please

    I've been trying to decide what I wanted for a while. Almost pulled the trigger on a nice 02 6 Speed Firehawk, but I found this at a local dealer. 2016 1SS with 15,000 miles. Practically new condition.

    I am very surprised how quick this car is. I have had several relatively fast cars throughout the years, but the A8 seems to keep the car in its powerband nearly always.

    Anyway, trying to decide what I want to do with it. Honestly, it is already faster than anything I can ever use, but I would like to get it to a consistent 11 second car.

    Any really good power per dollar mods? Anyway, just bored and figured I would share. Sorry for the huge pics. I'm too lazy to resize.

    Awesome! Welcome to the club, the car surprised me at first also.

    As far as mods if you want it to be a consistent 11 second car it won't take much and depends on what you are willing to do. Rotofab CAI, headers and tune will put you there, add an MSD or have you stock intake ported by Pray Performance will have you mid to low 11s consistently.

    I have honestly pondered just throwing a supercharger on it with low boost and being done. Super easy to just snatch back off if I decide to trade it in later. Not sure what the fuel systems will support. I assume there has to be a fairly straight forward kit to do an LT4 blower.

    Yeah you can buy one but they are kind of expensive, you can buy a used LT4 blower for like $1500 or so but the conversion kit is $3000. Honestly might as well buy a Maggie or Procharger at that point. Either way you'll have to buy the LT4 low pressure pump, high pressure pump and injectors if you want more than than about 600. If you want less than that you can keep LT1 stuff but it runs out around 600ish. A P1 Procharger on 7 pounds will make just under that and isn't up expensive.

    I am definitely not wanting more than 600. I have ironically gone from my younger days of wanting a super fast car that looked stock to wanting a moderately fast car that looks really fast

    I'm the exact opposite I just bought a forged 416 ci short block, 1400 HP secondary port injection system, twin turbo kit shooting for 1200 rwhp. I'm going to do a build thread when it gets closer to being done.

    I was big into drag racing back in the day, and I still love the idea. However, I know how often I'm actually going to a track. I certainly look forward to seeing a build thread on that though!

    This will be my last build on a car so I decided to go big.

    I just saw someone on one of the 6th gen Facebook forums selling a complete Maggie kit for $5000, they'd probably take less.

    I fell in love the first time I felt it go through 3-6 at WOT. Awesome how you never fall out of the power band. But the engine is also so good you still have so much torque it almost doesn't matter. Definitely check out Prey performance he has some killer stuff. He has one package that will get you in the 10s while looking and sounding completely stock.

    Ugh. That is tempting. However, I live in PA now. So even if I wanted to spend the money right now, it would be severe waste lol. Around April I'll be hunting something. Car will be in the garage most of the next few months.

    I've been looking at 6th gens and just seen some guys complaining on the 6th gen Facebook group that there's no interest right now, it might be a good time to get a deal.

    First thing I would do is the A8 fluid change to help with the trans shudder. It might have been done already but if not, I would do it. It's a warranty bulletin so it shouldn't cost you anything. I can check to see if it has been done if you pm me the vin.

    Cool. Will do. It was certified used through a Chevy dealer. So I'm all but sure it was done, but if it isn't on my paperwork when I get home, I'll send you the VIN to check.

    what would ya'll do to a stock 2010 LS3 6 speed? wife daily drives it...has about 50k miles....she wants a new car soon.
    is it worth modding even a little? headers/heads/cam? i know i want to get some aftermarket wheels and maybe lower a tad.
    it feels slow as shit now, because it's so damn heavy. looking for a cruiser with more power, not going to race it.

    I have it up for sale there, it's the one that is the F1-A that is polished and comes with extras that are new like the ATI Damper and 10 rib pulley system. Also has the Porcharger intake that is new with blue lettering.

    Yeah you could do headers, cam and tune and it would really wake it up, heads if you have the money but just the headers, cam and tune would make a big difference.

    I wouldn't count on it. It's not something they would do as part of the certification. They'll generally only do it if the customer comes in complaining about transmission shudder. Also, there is a new fluid that came out recently so even if it was done some time back, it's worth doing it again with the new fluid.

    Yeah mine had the shudder when I bought it so I took it to the dealer and had them replace the fluid and then put a Circle D converter in it, it's the only issue I have had with the car.

    All manual 5th gen SS should have come with 3.91s standard. Absolutely love them in my 1LE. My car doesn't feel slow and I just have a Z/28 cai, corsa catback and the stock 3.91 gears. Compared to a 6th gen 1LE, it is slow but it doesn't feel that way because of the gears. I always thought the 5th gen 1LEs felt quicker than the ZL1 because of the gearing.

    3.91s are next on my list.
