Like I said

LIke i said above, this should have been a close race something is wrong.

Confused

Why should the viper beat the zo6 that badly in a straight line. I thought horsepowers are about the same and so are the weights.

Another source

I could be wrong but on this link if you read down it says that the Ultimate package includes cam and heads and 7000 rpm redline for more power, 30 hp with the CNC heads and cam.

That sounds...

I continue to see in this post and others where everyone seems to say that the Mustang, new or older is faster than the Camaro. Now even the new 2015 which by all the things I've read is now about...

Has anyone noticed this

It seems the 2014 1Le front splitter is different then the 2013. I have a 2013 and it is duller then the 2014's that I have seen. If so can my 2013 be painted to match.

On my cap there is not rotating, it just slips on with the neoprene ring gasket giving it a bit of a tight fit.

The stock cap may have the rotation ,but not the 1le one that the dealer installed...

So some questions.

If I have a 1LE, which I do, what can I use for a spare if the gm spare won't work?
Why doesn't it work?

Also whats with the front tow hooks? Can't they put it on a flat bed without the hooks?

Thats what I was thinking, now How about this.

Quote Raptor 5244 You will get about 20-25rwhp or so from a quality set of long tubes and high flow cats. Figure about another 10rwhp from optimizing the timing with a tune. That is typically what...

Missed the point

My god you missed the point, my original post said exactly that. I stated that up front.

My question was what added power can I expect with the headers and a tune.

A few things that make a huge difference. MY car did 383 Rwhp on the mustang dyno on a 75 degree day. Huge loss of power at 105 degrees. I added the airaid and on the same dyno got 400WRhp.
