NICE VAN!
I'm getting closer to where I want mine. Going to start on the interior soon.

I'll do a van 5 or 10 years from now when some company finally makes good self driving kits for older stuff. And I'll put a bed and a recliner chair in there so I can be lazy as hell while it drives me to wherever. Then it'll be worth it. It would be hard to keep me from seeing most of the U.S if I had that. Might be hard to get a king sized bed in a van though. I won't settle for less.

I'd also need it to look grandiose so I'd look like some kind of luxuriating king or something. Or maybe like hedonism bot from futurama.

We have a Queen and could probably squeeze a king in if we tried.. Of course there'd be room for nothing else!

I got a new bandsaw for the shop, great for precise cuts on thick materials.

We got the front motor plate squared away today.

I think there's extra wide vans. Been awhile since I saw anything like that though.

It would have to be foam and squeeze a bit, in mine. Chevy vans have a bit more width though, too. The king is 16 inches wider than queen so really it wouldn't fit in mine, since I only have 6-8" of room left.

Has anyone in this thread modded a 15-17 GT? I picked one up last week and I’m not sure what mods to do first.

Auto or stick? if it's a stick, steeda clutch pedal spring. All I've done to my auto is exhaust. I've heard that a tune on the auto makes it way the hell better to drive.

Dump the shitty Pirelli's, and get some Michelin Pilot Sports. Aside from that,
I'd start with gears and a short-throw shifter, if a blower is out of budget.

That’s what I figured the general consensus would be.

What setups are you guys running? Which blower, what gears, what exhaust?

The Jeep will be finished this week and I want to start shopping for the car.

Tvs gen 3, 4.10s, Corsa sport. I did an MBRP Street 3in catback and it was decent, a lot of the more aggressive ones get really raspy on the top end.

I've got the Roush blower and their active exhaust. I had the regular Roush catback on there before, and it sounds better IMO, but I like being able to quiet it down when in the neighborhood. It's got the performance package 3.73's and suspension, and I put Eibachs at the corners for a little lower stance. The shifter and carbon fiber driveshaft round out the performance mods, the rest are aesthetic or audio upgrades.

I've actually still got the Roush cat back, with black tips, name your price and come get them (I'm in Frisco) if you're interested.
