I have seen a noticeable decrease in my gas mileage. This may be due to the uncontrolled urge to get on the gas but I blame the intake. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

I hope that is not the direction they are going. But i think you may be correct. That would be an evolution of the 14-15 lights. And I still cannot get myself to like the rear on those cars. I have...

Correct me if I'm wrong but an HID headlight still has a "bulb" that plugs into the projector and without seeing it installed you cannot say it is not an HID housing. Without the entire car wiring...

The new LT1 is paired with the manual in the Vette. Safe to assume they will not made a special motor this time to differentiate between manual and auto. Pretty sure the L99 came about to prevent the...

Given that the alpha platform should weigh less than the Mustang, why would a similarly powered car be slower with less fuel economy that its primary rival? And as far as techno coolness, we don't...

Go sit in an ATS and see how it fits. Interior space will be very comparable in the front seat. Headroom may be a little tighter but that should give you a pretty good ballpark

Engine choices

So according to autocar the TTV6 is still a possibility. Goes back to what I said earlier. A T4 base engine. A TTV6 middle engine detuned to the 375-400 hp range. And a 450 hp V8. Sounds like a nice...

Who says there isn't room for a V8 and TTV6? A 390-400 horse TTV6 is a far different beast from a 450 horse V8. Maybe even make the TTV6 the base SS engine and uprate (translated up price) the V8....

Engine choices

Everyone assumes the SS will be a V8. And the base model will get a V6 or Turbo 4 option. What if the V6 or even basic V8 was replaced with the ATS-V power plant? A TT-V6. Possibly de-tuned to 400 hp...

That would be false advertisement then. If it is designed to lay flat and does not, then you cannot call it custom fit. That's a "fits most" scenario. And others have suggested trimming but I would...
