Immediately, needs a front end alignment and a new throttle position sensor...gonna buy the SC-T Style Ram Air Hood probably mid august...get it repainted to cover the current rust spots after the hood.

then new Head lights(Spec-D Tuning Black Halo LED Projector Headlights with Amber Reflector), Tail lights(Black Altezza Tail Lights) + fog lights(The Blazer 2200 Fog Light)

New LED Gauges..blue or green

Borola GA Cat Back exhaust system

Pretty well it for now

I think I saw it on here,

It isn't suggested to pick up one of the enhanced throttle sensors?

GAGT is like a twisted second family for all of us here. I'd look for other exhaust setups though. The Flowmaster 80 series muffler with a glasspack as a resonator sounds the best with the LA1 IMO. And go SC/T FTW!

Oh god no. That body kit is terrible. Seriously, you actually would waste your money on that?

Either the RK Sport kit, or SC/T lip kit works with the GA. Everything else is pretty much Also, A E D if you actually find the kit, but good luck with that.
