I'm guessing that low because your motor was built for boost.
We have a winner....

Brandi put down 475/480 through the nine inch diff with 3.07 gears... No complaints...other than an 800 RWHP loss...

Oh well... She'll be back in the power range before too long... By October at least... Gotta be ready for the next running of the Mile....

Exactly what I would have expected. The engine is built for boost.

That is still a lot of horsepower. Look at guys who put blowers and headers on stock engines. That's about what some of them make.

Oh how your perspective changes!

Oh I'm good with it... I know it's temporary... Brandi will be back and stronger than ever in a few months... In the meantime, I get to drive her....

Awesome. I heard Pete at Pedders donated a set of the new dual bearing camber plates for the winner. I'm so excited!

Actually....lol

Yes, yes I am.

I'm airing up my rear left tire every two days. Got a nail...nothing too bad, but Discount won't touch that thing if I shoved money their way. Holding out for the ZL1 replicas and might have to go with the Nitto's 295/35/20's from Glen. Probably won't be out for a few more weeks.

Until then... I would appreciate a loaner.
