761 rwhp in a V6 is pretty good.

Yeah, but I may need to start using synthetic oil. That should be the push to hit 780. Friction's a killer.

Not bad for some duct tape and new wiring, You SHOULD SEE the Tune we put on that thing, killer. But as Norm posted AGAIN we are moving up to SYNTHETIC OIL now, and our numbers should be off the charts.

We still call my brother "Cliffy." He has an outrageous explanation for everything...

He should have been a college professor.

Gotta love lighting! It's cooler to watch it strobe, change color and really shows up at night. But the mosquitos are out in force tonight.

NOTE: That is a rock chip above the sidemarker. Just got the car finished (Aug '10) and drove it back from Panama City. Wouldn't you know it!!!! However, permagrin would NOT be defeated!

Yeah, I've tinkered a bit. I don't know what else to do. No way in hell will I install some "ghost tune", which to me could be nothing more than screwing with my cam phasers and the VVT. Not to mention voided my warranty and for what? "Sounds cool." Not good enough for me. I can't justify to myself spending the money on Flowmasters even. Sad, huh? The suspension (Pfadt) was the best money I put in this thing performance wise. The Injen, other than giving me 700+ hp, just makes a cool whistle.

But I love my car. And Snoop it makes me happy having your name on there! You were my first C5 buddy!

From left to right:

Randy, MisterCamaro69, John (that guy has a southern accent), and me (I'm this guy cause I really don't have a clue about the V8 but I talk a lot about them and can throw acronyms around and I know what BAP is now courtesy of MisterCamaro69)

I may end up having an IQ of 49 and later be considered, what most call, mentally, um....challenged.

HA Norm just said he was going to the Dentist, Now we know he is at the Goodwill Store. Figures he wouldn't tell me and leave me behind. I am beginning to get a complex. First he lets ALL of our secrets out and now he is at the Goodwill without me...............Hmmmmmmmmm. He knows they get the Good Stuff in on Wednesdays and I bet he is getting first dibs on things right now.
