This is my 99 LB Viggen that i have owned for coming up on 6yrs now. When i received the car in 09 it had been sitting for 2yrs. The previous owner had stopped driving the car and just let it collect dust in the garage. I purchased it with 70k miles on it and got a smokin deal on it. I didn't know much about the Viggen when i bought it, but knew after seeing it i had to have it. And so began the process of getting it running right and upgrading it. So here's the list of whats all done to this point---
STAGE 3 TUNE- BREW CITY BOOST
3" DOWN PIPE- GS
HIGHFLOW INTERCOOLER
KRONA COBRA PIPE- BCB
REBUILT THE WHOLE FRONT END
NEW FRONT AND REAR CONTROL ARMS
ALL NEW TIE ROD ENDS INNER AND OUTER
VIGGEN RESCUE KIT
KONI KIT WITH EIBACH SPRINGS
GS UPPER STRUT MOUNTS- TO BE INSTALLED
REAR SWAY BAR- GS
19" MIRO 112 SERIES WRAPPED IN DUNLOP DIREZZAS

THINGS GETTING DONE THIS SPRING

VIGGEN TRANS WITH T8 GEARS, 4.45 FINAL AND QUAIFE LSD- NEW OE VIGGEN CLUTCH
I BOUGHT A USED TDO4 TURBO THAT WILL BE SENT OUT TO GET BUILT TO 19T SPECS
T5 CAMS
NEW TUNE TO FOLLOW

I know I have probably left quite a few things out but you get the idea. This car has been a looong process for me. Getting it running right and back up to par when i got it was my first priority and since then i have been able to do the fun mods. The car doesn't get driven to often as this is my Sunday cruiser if you will. Pretty much just take it to shows and to Road America a few times a year. Thanks for the ADD and I will keep yall updated with the progress of her. BOOST on [smile]

Shaner- Nope just a high temp gloss black that i wet sanded and cleared. Has some very small imperfections in it if you look REAL close, but im still happy with the outcome. And thanks for the kind words on the car. [smile] vig7.jpg

Wow. This is one of the best looking LB viggen I have ever seen. Those 19 miros with that suspension height and those yellow fogs make the car simply stunning. It makes want a LB Viggen :-).

Thanks Khaled - Its far from perfect but one day soon i hope to have it close to it. Within in the next few years after i finish all the go fast parts [wink]  I wanna have it resprayed. Previous owner had a small dent pulled and had the rear resprayed and blended i would assume by the quality it was a Maaco job bc the rear bumper in the right light isn't quite the same color and the clear is pealing not to mention the rash on the front hood and bumper from rocks and horrible drive ways. Great forum btw and thanks for the kind words on the Viggen.
