If the alignment is really off straight from the factory / dealer, I'd take it right back to the dealer and tell them you want it fixed under warranty. You didn't spend $35k to have a new car that...

That's pretty low! My LTs would just about scrape the ground that low. Pretty nice to see how log you can go if you wanted but probably most people would have a hell of a time with the car scraping...

I just called them since my trial is expired and asked them what they could offer me and they offered me the 5 months for $20. I think I'll do it. That's pretty damn cheap. After the 5 months I'll...

Well since the SRT8 already costs around $43K, the SRT10 would be near $60k the way Dodge prices things. To me that's just too much.

I was gonna laugh about this earlier when I saw it. I paid $12 on Ebay for the eliminator and put it on myself. So realistically it cost more like $30 to have someone put it on. If you make it...

I think the competition is good. I'm pretty impressed that they were able to get that power out of the 5.0. Cubic Inches per HP is definitely advantage to the 5.0 and it's lighter so overall I...

You appear to be getting 40 at the wheels over stock. That looks to be pretty standard, maybe 5 low but that could be depending on how the tune is set up.

I kinda like the sound with the stock catback and LTs. The only real reason I even am considering changing the catback is because I can't stand the look of the ugly cans behind the car.

Dealers will install the GMPP shorties, but that's all I've seen. They don't relocate the cats so it's still legal. I'm doubting any dealer will install LTs.

I'm not certain that just because they sell stuff that it's covered under factory warranty. That website is run by a particular dealer, not GM itself. This would be interesting to find out.

I got my LS3 done on a Dynojet using STD: 1.02 and my results were 380.81 hp / 387.50 tq. Given what most other LS3s are getting, I'm right in line with them considering the STD setting and the dyno.

Seems odd to me that people are busting axles with just an exhaust, intake, and tune. That's around 50hp extra which shouldn't be enough to hurt the stock parts. They don't put 400hp parts on the...
