Pretty sure those are 9s. Tires look like NT-01s.

They are 15x9s with an old set of 225/45/15 nt01s. There's about 15mm worth of spacer installed to get them out far enough to look reasonable. I want to street drive a set of 245/40/15 on 15x10s, but there aren't any good tires available (yet?).

So those are 15x9 with 15mm spacers.
For the 15x10, do you ditch the spacers?

Ya. The 10s are +22 and with 245 hoosiers they fit without spacers. I haven't tracked it yet, though, so I'm not sure if it's going to rub. I might jack up one side of the car and take a look, but that doesn't tell you a whole lot without compressing the spring or removing it. The rear is going to be close. The NB rear spindle guys are going to be real close.

I've been thinking about getting a cam. There's a 228R in my other motor that's available, but I'm trying to find a cam that's nicer on the valve train. Not sure what I'll end up with since there are so many choices.

A few more weekends and it will be ready for the track. I'm hoping to get it down to 2190lbs with a full tank.

I found a new (to me) dyno within a 5 minute drive of work. Seeing as I tweaked a lot of small things since my last dyno I figured it was worth it to get a baseline and make sure the motor isn't going to fall apart at my next track day. It still looks healthy for a mostly stock ls6.

That's impressive for an exhaust choked LS6!

I've never had a harder erection then when I look at this car.

The NA's look so great with a wider fender.
