So you get the idea. Instead I think you are better off to work on getting your car to be more efficient, learn how to launch and drive it. Last week a member here drove a stock ZL1 with DRs to an 11:50s pass. That pass would beat 90% of the stock 13-500s out there. IMO this is much more impressive than somebody throwing a bunch of dollars at their car to boast about hp numbers.
I gotta say I totally agree. With a pulley,CAI,TB and tune those 500's are seeing over 100rwhps gains as well. With less work; no exhaust, porting or cooling mods.
On the other hand more power is always a good thing
