Nope. Just talked to Tom. He's going to need to get his hands on a 5th Gen before figuring out all that could happen. He's got some good ideas, though.

God, I wish...that would quickly put my price point way over the edge. We might be able to get into the engine, but that'll all come in time. I can't wait to see what he has in mind.

As soon as I find out, everyone will know. I'm sure it'll be worth waiting for! He's already mentioned painting stripes w/ clear coat and also doing a chambered exhaust.

Just put a piece of wood under the gas pedal, That'll throw him off for
awhile.

(Put some granny undies under the passenger seat too)

From THR website...
<<"Another thing's that's interesting is my SS, with the Phase 2, 435 horse motor has about the same power and might be about the same weight as the '09 Z28, SS or whatever they'll call the uplevel performance convertible. You take the difference between a regular Z28 from back in '02 and my '02 Tom Henry SS, then factor that into the difference between a regular V-8 '09 and a future Tom Henry SS and...wow...500-hp! That oughta be a fun car!"

We can only hope, Tom.>>

I agree
