Hi Stickman glad to have you.  I have a 2006 base model as well, lucky build #1458, check your last digits in the VIN to find out see if it was one of the first 1,000 (for bragging rights).  To sum it up, I beat the absolute crap out of this car with a lead foot, never had a catastropie and it has never left me stranded over the 5 summers driving it, even though I find ways to wear stuff out like driveshafts or kill pistons/bores, I still make it home without a flatbed.  Consider I am pushing easily over 300 whp (my turbo only setup made 444 whp), dropping the clutch doing burnouts with 275 wide 300 treadwear tires, that says alot about how robust the drivetrain is.
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

To be fair - he wasn't using it when I took it.
Make the right choices now
