I think I posted this way back in another name thread, but I named mine Freyja after the Norse goddess of Death and Beauty. It felt like the right name for a Black/Black 2SS to me.

Negative - I really HATE when people take things that aren't theirs, especially by force. I can't stand the mentality that "I want that, but I'm not willing to work towards it so I'll just take it...

No, you can shift into 3rd. It's just more awkward to reverse directions in mid-shift (although I always did it because I didn't want to shift to 4th yet). It annoyed the hell out of me when I got my...

I would think the flywheel hp rating is more reliable and accurate. The problem with dynoing at the wheels brings to many variables into play. There's variation in how different dynos read the power...

No joke there. I came from an STi and the handling is totally different. The Camaro feels a lot more floaty and detached. You could feel everything in the STi and it handled like a go-cart. I'm still...

Are you driving around the city at 3000rpm? If so, that might be your problem. Cruising at that high of an engine speed is not efficient. You should be able to shift to a speed where you are between...

I wish you had posted 5 minutes earlier.:D I hadn't thought about it actually having to build a playlist for the different search functions. That would take even more space than I was thinking.

I posted about this last week- I was rolling forward at 1-2mph (hadn't come to complete stop) and tried to hit reverse and it forced me into 5th instead. So 5th and reverse are two completely...

In my experience, the lower the rpm's the better the mileage. I've actually run at 40mph in 6th on flat ground. The LS3 has so much low end torque it doesn't bog unless you floor it at low rpm's.

Okay, I looked closer last night and I found them. They are higher up on the brakes than I expected. So, false alarm on them not being there on higher VIN's.

I couldn't find them on mine (#17348) I'm guessing I'm just not looking in the right place. I'll have to check again if they were still on the 16,000's.

I think that was for the day pretty much. If you go back and look at the first post, he updated yesterday evening. He's slowly working his way through all of them. He's almost up to mine (I think).

Current = '05 WRX STi - 300hp
Planned = '10 2SS - 426hp

Net gain = 126hp

But I'm also gaining about 500lbs, so that cuts into it a bit.
