New 2008 base Solstice owner
« on: December 17, 2017, 03:16:28 PM »
Just bought this car with 12,000 miles on it a few months ago. After 50 years of motorcycles I thought maybe I've pushed my luck long enough so this is my new toy. Replaced the original battery and one tire that had a box cutter blade embedded in it. All stock and in nice shape otherwise. I'm only now getting to really be used to it and enjoy reading here to learn more..
Glad to find you all, y'all.

Welcome to the Kappa life  :yay:

I also switched over from a bike into the vert.  I wanted a domestic rwd 4-cyl turbo car to play with, my only option was the Solstice/Sky platform.  These cars also caught me eye to begin with, so maybe I intentionally set the guidelines so that I end with a kappa car.
2006 Solstice #1458, Twincharged LE5/LEA, 5757+M62, Werks exh manifold, Tial bpv/wg, Cams, dual meth, 40 PSI, Kappadapt clutch hose/flywheel bolts/trans mount, Aisin AR5, Stage 5 clutch
Turbo-only power 444whp/422wtrq

2013 Cruze Missile, tuned, 42 lb, ZZP SRI/FMIC/DP/MP/CB, Kappadapt trans mount
