Whenever you're in Michigan for any length of time! Wanna have a mini-meet when I replace the LIM gaskets, plugs and wires?

If I remember right the MY that the PS was removed was the 2000 year. I think the badgeless look is better because ppl won't know what you are packing. Plus these cars are quickly gaining a rep on the street as silent monsters but if you are going to leave it stock you may also get some little idiots wanting to always race when they see the supercharged badge

I must say, if Michigan is anything like Ohio, you were very lucky to find one that mint. There are about 4 for sale around Newark, but all of them have been smoked in and are fairly trashy.

Oh, one more thing. Have you found that the car rolls way too much? Every GS I've driven rolls JUST like my Impala (which really ticks me off...), and it surprised me since it'* "car for the supercharged family"

that is why you get coilovers which honestly is not much more if you are getting a performance suspension setup.

Does the digital boost gauge have a display limit of 99 psi?
The color is great, and the trim looks fantastic. I didn't see much of the underside, but it looks really clean from the sides. Nice to see a car in Michigan that has done so well over the years. Congrats on the purchase!

Coilovers won't do it that well, but anti rollbars will
