A trailblazer ss? You have been smoking some amazing crack. I knew there had to be an explanation for your LS craze, now I know. Crack kills Rapinator.

What's wrong with the TB SS?

It won't really help the notchiness - it actually increased somewhat, but also created a more positive engagement if that makes sense. Throws are unchanged as well.
The notchiness, especially when cold, is more of a product of the trans fluid than anything else I believe. A fluid change and a steel line would go farther to remedy that aspect.
I highly recommend the inexpensive bushing upgrades though if your not ready to upgrade the shifter just yet - I haven't missed a shift yet or been locked out since.

Ugly as hell (yes even the SS). Who cares how "fast" it is. That's a soccer mom disposable vehicle. Interiors are terrible. You are serious with that on your list? And if mustangs are not on the list, why are you still here in the forum? Just to say LS whenever possible? Lol. You said you still liked mustangs in a post a while ago after you sold yours and that's why you were sticking around...but I'm not sure I believe that.

I still build mustangs on a daily for people. As well as diesels and camaros and f150's ect.

And I'm here bc I want to be.
I have done what I have, and always try new things.

Fast is all I care about when it comes to "performance cars"
Don't sugar coat anything to customers either. They want the truth and I give it to them.

If I ever did buy one again it would be another 03 or a lightning.

What did you do with your Mustang today

Funny you say that. My Chevy dealer just sold a 03 Lightning. Really good looking red on it, and sold for less than I expected. Probably the only ford truck I'd consider.

That must be it. They usually have trouble selling Fords; which I'm in Bow tie country. They have a Trinity that's been there since November. Started at 55 now at 48. They got a ZL1 around the same time. It lasted maybe 2 weeks.

Idk, I gotta agree with Rap on this one. The SS Trailblazers have grown on me. I've seen a few built ones and they are beasts. I'd love to have one as a sleeper.

I mean, I have a Trailblazer LT, could just throw an LS motor in there.

Nice. Those 12V Cummins are some wicked mofos. I've never really been a modern truck person but lately several of them have peaked my interest. Silverados, Rams, Lightnings, Trailblazers, H3Ts, SRT-10, Jeeps. Eh screw it, and the Triton V10 solely because I love V10s.

Ordered the Steeda shifter base bushing. Curious to see how much it changes the stock shifter feel. From the reviews this is one of the best purchases to make. I'm sure I won't be disappointed. Hopefully install next weekend.

Nice. We've been working off and on, on a wicked 12V. Makes around 55-60lbs of boost. I have a 40 series on my Silverado. Sounds great, but I'm missing the Vortex that was on it.

Trans?
Color?

Gave my roller chassis a good whip down a few days ago. She may not have a motor or trans, but she still looks damn sexy!

Cleaning it makes it look faster.
