Here is the mighty LS1 5.7L V8 engine (back when it was mostly stock). It's the same one they used in the C5 Corvette. I'm not much into engine dress-up. To the left is my aftermarket air intake. It makes a satisfying whistling sound, but you have to listen carefully. The exhaust covers it pretty well. Here is my new strut tower brace. These things are great! It really stiffens up the front.
