2007 GXP


Recommended Posts

New here, hi huys..this is my 2007 GXP

It is the DD and weekend double duty of car show/cruise nights.

Just one performance mod. Reworked the exhaust. Got rid of the resonator and welded in a cutout. So that everyone knows its a V8.

Apperance mods:

05 18" Bonnie GXP rims.

SEMA concept inspired GXP badging.

H/D front chin spoiler.

Just some pictures to give you an idea.

Thanks guys!!

Ohh there will be more. It is a DD so not going to extreme.

Untill I can get the trans done by a performance shop (GM did not give these cars a very strong transmission) I am just doing some minor bolt ons.

Money is kinda tight right now but once it starts flowing a little more looking at a fender well CAI, TB and spacer and maybe a tune.

Bodywise I am hopeful to get some tint on the windows and tails. And looking for exhaust tips that have a little more shine to them on the lip, maybe Magnaflows or something. Maybe get the S/E bumper with the diffuser in the middle. But thats just luck if I find one.

And I would love to drop it. But where I live my driveway it just about clears it. steep ramp from the street. So untill that changes gotta keep it the ride height.

PS: D ranger..you got a 5.0 in your truck? Would love to see that! I wish Ford put them out with the V8's. Dont know why they never did?

JDM = Japanese Domestic Market

Nowadays, it's coined as terms for angled pics and such. Like driving up an incline on an angle, "JDM" angle. :lol2:

Seriously though, driving at an angle over speedbumps and inclines greatly reduces the chance for underbody scraping.

Plus, a drop is so worth it. :bowdown:

I have been taking pics of cars for years and this is the first time I heard people call this a JDM angle.

Unless this is a popular import word thrown around...if so I stay far away from those meets..very far away..

last thing about the drop. Again, Could if I would.

my driveway has no way to go over it like a speedbump entering. I got a concrete wall on one side and a fence on the other side. So cant angle it to go up.

With the cutout I lost almost 1" of ground clearance and I scrape if I have 4 adults in the car going into my driveway. Thats how much of an sharp incline I have to go up.

And just letting you guys know. It comes lowered from the factory. GM dropped the GXP's stock ride height already. So it is already lower than a regualr GP. :bowdown:
