How did everyone make out for Black Friday list deals you found!

Well if you know me I'm Frugal I spend a lot but I always save big money to make my habit go further.

I found a set of ZL1 1LE wheels for 2256 brand new free ship GMPARTSWAREHOUSE.COM could of got the z28 wheels for just under 2400.00

577.00 plus 50 core each
Minus 10% off total order over 300
Free ship.

The 10% covered the core charge and heck most of these big online gm parts stores charge stupid amounts for shipping.

I also picked up a budget resleved block from MAST motorsports for 1599.00 plus tax I live 2hours so I'll pick up in person it's all ready to asm. It's been line honed, bored w deck plate , and finished honed ect...

Picked up summit 1200 hp connection rods for 480.00
6.125L 9.27 pins arp 2000
MAHLE pistons for 815.00 -16cc .927 for 6.125 rods
Free lt4 crank from buddies lt4 that through 2 rods just gonna have it checked out for cracks, roundness, and journals.

Should be the cheapest 376 build for 1200 plus hp. I can sell my lt1 block and recoop some dinero.

Did that last year.. 85 inch Samsung 4k

Check out mobile vids if you want to ditch the Netflix, cable, Amazon.. firestick blah blah it helps to have a theater computer the TV browser is slow on this site. Also you can add a TV Hauppauge card to the pc and get all the locals if you live close to the city for free.
I'm talking no more bills except internet.

Pretty much all the channels live and you can watch or download them store them add them to a USB stick and so on. Then new Ghostbusters should be here in a few days.

I grabbed a Big Gulp and NW 103 throttle body in preparation for porting the blower. Will snag an Elite CC too and install it while the blower is at Kong.

Bought all necessary parts for the 1le front end conversion from GMpartsnow for $976 best I could find. Also got a APR GTC-300 67" Wing for $1555 from PYFC. Well see how long that will take to get delivered.

i picked up a new throttle body from Soler performance. That should be showing up tomorrow. Also picked up the BMR front and rear cradle lockouts which i received today.
I'm really impressed with how fast the shipping was from both Phastek and Soler, I'll definitely order from them again!!

btw... you still have tsp on your car? are they coated? i think if they can survive 1000 wheel for a prolonged period of time then that speaks for itself on build quality. Believe me i don't want to spend 2k on a pair of long tubes

Yes still hanging in there I see no problems so far. They weren't hard to put on I usually spend a lot then get something new a year later. I could put 2 or 3 sets on myself for what one set costs. I guess if your paying someone the install money buy at a high priced brand might be wise. When I 1st started my build katytx or Scott's car was over at Sorians and his Kooks where made wrong so go figure. Scott's now has a gtr though among a few other toys.

I would buy TSP headers before Kooks...Nothing wrong with Kooks, but TSP are right there with them on quality for a lot less coin. My brother installed TSP headers and SE X pipe into Stock NPP on his ZL1. It's super quiet with valves closed even with no cats. The stock muffler sounds a little tinny but it's not terrible. The SE X pipe hangs a little lower then my Borla and you need to replace the supplied clamps which I also did on my Borla 60608. Other then that the setup from what I have seen is hard to beat for the money. You can spend under a grand on this TSP/SE X pipe kit or spend 3k on a Kooks or ARH system...they all going to perform the same. The ARH will be guaranteed fitment vs the cheaper headers where 1 out 10 might have a clearance issue of some sort. That is about all you remove from the equation when buying a top dollar header system.

right but melting plug wires and potentially having to dent a header with ceramic or have it get scratched to shit by a bolt gives me anxiety lol
