A PTB is nice (I have one), but what the VTC does is far more impressive. Sorry some are having problems because the difference is awesome.

Continental Extreme Contact Sport Tires?

Anybody have them on a 5th Gen? If so, what do you think of them, compared to factor Perellis (wet/dry handling, noise, ride comfort, tread wear)?

All comments appreciated - it's about time for...

Not sure about short tube headers, but consensus says (on a V8) long tubes and a custom tune will get you about 30-40 HP at the crank. The response when you hit the skinny pedal is significantly...

I guess you haven't driven a V8 with auto tranny. Low-load and light throttle can happen with in-town (slow speed) driving and AFM will kick in even at 25 MPH. Then when you step on the gas a little,...

Sorry OP, but I'm much more OCD about the proper use of "there, their, and they're". In the above quote, the proper spelling would be "their", not there. :)

I carry a torque wrench in my trunk and check the lugs once a month or so, in between rotations (which I do myself).
