my 94 was totaled in 04 and my 92 was totaled in 06 or 07. I paid 2700 for my 92 and they cut me a 4200 dollar check

get the one with the ls2 because then you can use the l92 heads which are from gm performance parts. They flow better than afr's but you can't use them on the ls6. you have to have a 4 inch bore which the ls2 comes with from the factory. So if you ever wanted to mod the car with something such as heads cam, this would be the best way to go In my opinion.

I've been reading up on the car since I've been home from work, and didn't realize the extent of the diff problem with those cars. I knew there was an issue, but I don't know if it's one of those things blown way out of proportion. I'm looking into some of the wheel-hop-eliminator options right now.

Yeah, it looks like there's an aftermarket cradle that will help eliminate wheel hop, although not entirely. It seems this car is set up more of a road racer than drag car, and I guess more than a few guys have grenaded the stock diff at stock power levels. Hmmmm. I'm sure if I drive smart and don't stay in it during wheel hop like what I'm thinking these asshats did, I could probably get away with a few trips to the strip a year.

yeah youd be fine if you can drive. Cobrajack has stock diff. he launches at 4500 rpms, no issues. He has a brace and bushings.

Based on my recent CTS purchase i did alot of re-search on V's prior to convincing myself to get a non V. Get an LS2. The LS6 ones have a TON of rear end issues (blowing them the fuck up)

the plus side to the LS2 aswell is as bryant said its got the bigger bore so when you do heads came you'll be at a much larger gain b/c of the bigger cubes. That and anything you put on the car will have a larger gain in my eyes b/c your building from a stock cam and heads 6.0 instead of a 5.7 with the cam already being bigger just to get it to the 6.0's level

I understand the advantages of Stick but for some people its not worth the extra hassle/inconveinence. I could care less about the extra rpm's and few 10ths on the track. Cant shift faster than a auto thats for sure!
