Nice. Our stickers are <$200 apart, exact same spec except for color and stripe type. I've got 'er up to 424/419 rw with basic boltons and love, love, love it. Enjoy the journey!

Tell us about the change to 3.91.

Well with stock everything and the 3.91 I have a very fast launch, but the gearing doesn't replace real power, but it is a bit easier to spin the wheels. Bolt-ons would make a huge difference with a 3.91. I do have a supercharger being added this week, going with the E-Force 1958 since I live in California.

I would recommend adding a catch can and ported throttle body next. You'll be surprised how much the PTB improves driveability. Many here call it the best bang for the buck mod at $150.

Both are very easy DIY.

Did you ask them about your powertrain warranty and if they would cover any issues that came up since it was a dealer installed SC? I'm in CA as well, I'd love a PM or if you want to post here what you paid total for the SC and to have the dealer install it

Bottom line, if you supercharge your SS, kiss your powertrain warranty good bye. But if something does go wrong the shop warranties the install only of the supercharger. If you break an axel you're on your own., or if you blow your motor.

I am using this card with the Blackvue now http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I do not have any re-record issues. Maybe you need to modify your config which is also stored on the card.

Thanks, I appreciate it! I'll give that one a shot. I've tried to mess with the stuff thats stored on the card but it always gets to a point where the camera starts saying "check SD card, check SD card, check SD card". Thanks again!
