I think the 04's have different axles. Not sure whats different about them, I just remember hearing that they were a little stronger or something.

Other than that . . .
  • 04's and some 05's have a different stereo
  • 04's did not have a competition package available
  • A lot of 04's had the intercooler wires reversed
  • 04's do not have any fog-light wiring. The later models included the wiring even if they did not have fog-lights. This means makes it a lot more difficult to install the factory fog-lights in an 04.
There are probably a few more, but I can't think of them.

More of the 04's had "mystery" problems, i.e. the ones that can't seem to be solved compared to other years. That being said, the ones without the problems have run great.

I still have it as of right now. But I go back and forth almost every day on what to do with it.

Well, FMHO,
1.we can add a more quality aftermarket audio on 04's, no prob. at all
2.we can add boost gauge and tach meter, no prob at all
3.that is a easy fix.
4.I just drilled holes on the fog light place, so I have a functional vent to air filter instead of a fog light assembly on its way and more cold air will hit the air filter.

I heard 05-07model have more horse power, 205? our 04's have 200, is that correct?

all yr redlines are great,I just got an 04 no problems, awasome car,has fogs already done,etc.when I had my gen2 lightning they all will say get the 01+yrs
not rally much different,my 99 was great no problems.
and these cars wont be around forever,they just didnt make that many of them.
you can count on one hand how many are for sale,across the country,it took me awhile just to find a single one for sale in a 300 mile radius of me.
my gen 2 lightning is pretty rare you dont see many of them,and they made 24,000 of them,ion redline they made like 5,000 total in a 4 yr span.
beside my redline I have now I have seen a total of one ever in my state driving around.

04-Stage 3 set up,zzp 2.9 inch pulley, 42lb injectors,hp tuners tuned.aftermarket zzp header to a 3" exit,zzp 3" downpipe with a highflow cat to a 2.5 exit and trubendz 2.5" catback exhaust with a borla muffler.lowering springs,gm stage2 clutch,B&M short throw shifter.
Ingalls "stiffy" engine torque damper.cobra heat exchanger,stage 2 axels,after-market ,motor and trans mounts.

All Redlines were rated at 205 hp and 205 torque, but a lot of the later year models would dyno anywhere from 200 to 220+ hp stock.

What year would you guys reccomend?

i'm really looking for a "nearly new" one
I'm talking like a 2005-2007 with all the good stuff,
like comp package, recaros probably (even though i want a black car with a red theme , can you buy seats seperately or re-do the fabric color somehow?)

I'm thinking I'll pay close to $12,000 if i could get a really close to new (under 100,000 km) with comp pack and all the goodies

is there any chance of me finding a newer one?
and what year is the best, does 06 have comp pack available as well as recaros and all the good stuff?

reccomend me
