    LS suspension design: show me/explain why it is great

    Okay so after I pushed my LS hard on an open road race course, and then LS4me commented in my road racing thread about how the LS suspension was designed by an F1 engineer, I'm now curious. Does anyone have a good overall suspension photo, computer generated image, or detailed technical...

    LS is a Jalopnik "best getaway car for $5,000"

    Which, aside from the ridiculous depreciation, is a compliment: Of course they got the 2000 horsepower wrong ...

    Ran Open Road Race Course In My LS

    Hey guys, So I went to the Sandhills Open Road Challenge road race this week in Arnold, Nebraska: The SORC is known as one of the most technical/hardest open road races out there, it is 55 miles of narrow, 20-foot wide roads with scary ditches and barbed wire fences...

    Damn Retreads!

    Was driving the LS back from Denver yesterday and had to swerve two times to miss truck tire carcasses. Just before my exit a car in the right lane swerved into the left in front of me.

    New door handle only, or cable too?

    When drivers inside door handle breaks, do you only replace handle itself with something like the DORMAN 82712 part on rockauto, or does the cable itself need replacement too? Cable seemed fine but you never know...thoughts?

    Stereo upgrade: pics of spare tire well mounted amps?

    I've decided to upgrade the LS' base 4 speaker stereo. I just installed front 6x8 and rear deck 6x9 infinity speakers; the next step is installing a sony 5-channel amp, bazooka 10-inch, and double-din Pioneer deck while running RCAs and dedicated wiring to all speakers (still using factory...

    Ok so this thread covers a cylinder 1 misfire I got recently after only 3,000 miles on new coils. There was no oil on coil, plug or in well, but I replaced visteon coil with motorcraft coil and new plug and it was fine for a month. Now 500 miles later, cyl 1 misfire has returned along with...

    The Ford "Chug" Sound And Exhaust Smell

    Anyone who's owned lots of Fords knows the Ford engine "chug chug" sound at low rpm. My 140,000 mile LS is chugging louder now for some reason, and if I don't hit the recirc button for cabin air when starting car, it blows exhaust smell in. I recently had the intake replaced, but problem...

    Only 3,000 Miles From Visteons?

    Got a Cylinder 1 misfire today. Pulled coil cover and removed the Visteon that was installed only 3K ago, looked perfect no oil on it. In spark plug hole there is only the slightest half-circle shaped dark spot, prob oil, but very very little. Could that tiny spec of oil cause a misfire? And...

    17-Inch Sport Rims Owners, Step Inside

    How do / did you like the sport 17-inch rims? Did they hold up okay to potholes, etc.? I'm probably going to go to 17s at some point for my 2000 LS8, which still has the stock 5-spoke 16-inchers. The sport rim prices seem to be pretty reasonable. Will Gen 2 sport rims fit on a Gen 1? Any...
