On the way home after work last night, I came across a black SSR & a bmw weaving in & out of traffic like I was (it was warm in Chicago & the expressway was FULL of people with heavy right feet). Anyway, once we got a little straightaway, I'll be damn if that SSR started pulling me--:wtf:?!? As we approached another cluster of traffic, this mofo was a quarter panel length in front of me...I know I have a number of mods to go to make mine as fast as some I've seen on here, but come on--a fucking ugly ass throwback truck can dance with tha SS--really?!?!? And the bmw was reading BOTH our license plates?!?!? Any of you tangled with one of these....

2003 & 2004 had the 5.3L. 2005 & 2006 had the 6.0L LS2 just like us.

You just need more performance mods.
That itch for more horsepower is back again, especially after this incident. What can I get that won't land me in debt city; I'm thinking about the efans & under pulley. Anything I missed:dunno:.....

The SSR is on the same chassis as we are. They use a shortened TrailBlazer XL Chassis. The 2005-2006 have the same LS2 and are available with the 4L65E or the T56 6 Speed. They dont have any issues with wheel hop any more then we do seeing as they have the exact same suspension. They weigh around 4700-4900 pounds and can be made to be very quick. Watch out as there are some real quick ones out there.

You can thank the SSR for all the development work in creating the TrailBlazer SS. Almost everything used in the production of the TrailBlazer SS came from the SSR parts bin. I just wish the T56 6 Speed would have migrated over to the TrailBlazer SS. I used to have a 2005 SSR 6 Speed and loved it!

Here is a little video of a customers 2003 with a stroked 5.3 and MP122HH at 10 psi. The guy that owns this one is a Disabled Veteran from Vietnam and uses all hand controls. He is out there racing it all the time. His combination is dead consistent and cuts a damn near perfect light every time.
