It is the factory exhaust and intake. Open her up and she will breathe better and work less.

I would love to get her out on an old runway and see what would happen. I keep wising the Air Force would do like they did back in the 80s and open up the runway for a day for cars.

Oh what fun it would be to run down a 14,000 ft runway with nothing to worry about except blowing a tire.

I'm so jealous. My driving style is very much Duke-inspired.

You also have to worry about insurance. Your insurance company may deny any claim involving racing especially involving spectator events. This varies from State to State and how your policy is written.
Did you see that new black/oranged striped Camaro racing at night on a dragstrip on YouTube ?. Wiped out into the Jersey barrier- NO coverage.
