I've been here for awhile, never actually posted I believe. I have been looking into a Lightning for some time now.
In Nov-Dec this year (2005) I will be looking to BUY a Black Lightning, perferably a '03-'04 because of the slight changes they made which I have read made the truck significantly better. I am looking for a truck with mods or none, but no intense racing I would like a Truck that I know will not break down months to years after I buy it. I have been interested in Lightnings since about '98 and I've been waiting for this time to come. I live in South Florida if that helps any.

Also if I get a stock Lightning, what are the top performance upgrades I should equip it with?
It will be my day-to-day vehicle but also something I will take to the track just run every once in awhile...

Thank you,
c.nash

Hello and welcome!
These are great trucks. Once you own and drive one, you'll want to mod!!!
These trucks are addictive!!
Chip/pulley/filter to start.Also get a tune from a reputable tuner(PSP,JDM,RWTD)
With that combo it's a good modding start!
Good luck.

Thank you. I remembered this site when I saw a black lightning in Hialeah today and a White one in Miami infront of my school (Robert Morgan), and I thought to myself "I wonder how Lightning Rodder is doing now". Last time I was here the forums were dead...

Welcome Xile and enjoy. One problem with you getting a Black L. You might get the Rob syndrom and therefore talk alot of smack that you can't back up. :D Again the trucks are the Best. And Welcome Again

Welcome.

Performance Mods??? Hmmmm...go ahead and do the built motor mod first. It will save you alot of worrying and that is where your going to end up anyway.


Rocks :D

Welcome to the site.

Your first mods should be a Cold Air kit, lower pulley, Factory Tech Valve body and a good tune.

I can help you with all of the above when your ready.

Get ready to contract MODTHRAX!!! [smilie=eek4.gif] These trucks are addictive.

Xile,

Welcome back to LR :D I am glad our site was in your mind when you saw those two L's!

An 03 L is fantastic choice for a number of reasons (#1 reason = heads)!

Modthrax, yes I have it and I don't intend to deal with it :LOL

Welcome back xile!
