Ok - I am home!! Now for the good part---- That was one of the greatest most memorable days of my life!!! I took a friend along and he took ALOT of pictures, along with 2 dyno pull videos of my car and a 660hp vette that sounded bad azz also.( You will like these videos) Everyone in the shop was so awesome - they let us hang around pretty much the whole day until my car was done. The Borla exhaust sounds amazing and the Pedders coilovers made the drop on this car Unbelievable. Honestly their is nothing that I can think of that could have been better. This car is a BEAST!! It pulls like a train. On a side note, I got between 24 and 26 miles to the gallon on the way home with about 300 miles on the car when I started out. Amazing!! That was driving about 80mph the whole way, except through Chicago. I also broke it in right--- she like to be driven hard. I will have pictures and video up sometime this weekend but I have got to go drive her right now.

To the team at Lingenfelter-----You guys rock!!! Along with the dozen corvettes and 8 or so camaros, that we looked over alot yesterday, this was the best experience ever. We got to see a couple other customers camaros and a couple guys who drove from Pennsylvania with their corvettes, those dyno pulls were awesome!! Everyone of the Lingenfelter team from Ryan, my sales guy, to the staff working on the cars were very professional and seem to put everything into the quality of their work. If I had to do it again, your damn right I would take it to these guys. We also got to see a 1949 Ferrari that was going to Pebble Beach on a car carrier, as well as the many cars in the lot.

I want to thank Darin for taking time out of his schedule and picking us up at the airport and also hanging out with us all day. Living in Fort Wayne definately has its advantages.(20 miles from Lingenfelter) Hopefully the ride that we took doesn't make the wait for your car seem any more unbearable.

More to come, as I am sure I left out some parts.....have to go drive fo a while!!

Godd to hear you are home safe and sound!! So what was the best dyno pull? How was the ride with the pedders? Ryan is also my salesman, although I have only corresponded via email, seems like a straight up guy.
Nice to hear they are as noce in person.
Cant wait for the videos! Mine leaves week after next (17th) cant hardly wait.

My best dyno pull was 522 the day before but one of them we had 518 hp and 503 tq and we felt that was the best tune, so we used that one. My original stock dyno was 368hp and 372tq. So we gained 150hp and 131tq. It is amazing to drive - the Pedders suspension ride quality is top notch. I have the dampers set soft, so the ride quality feels stock if I hadn't known it had suspension. On the handling side - wow!! The car is very tight and feels great. Ryan is a great guy and very good to deal with. Everyone there seemed very cool, even with us walking around and not trying to get in the way too much. It was very hard though becuase of all the sweet cars they had there. Hopefully the wait isn't too brutal for you!!

I saw your car there - it looks bad azz with the white stripes. We were wondering if that was anyone's from the forums. I think Ryan mentioned that it was. It looks great!!! God - that 650 package is going to be awesome!!!!!! I would love to see your build also - You will have to keep me updated. Maybe in a few years I will go forged and turn it up.

Hi Speed,
Sounds like you had an AWSOME trip!

The Dyno graph looks awesome as the HP and Torque curve hold nice and steady around 500 hp through all RPM's - must pull like a bear down low out of the hole!

how did the sound clips of your ride on the Dyno come out? Can't wait to hear them!
Can you hear the SC inside the car? Happy with the exhaust?

Get any ideas for other small mods that can improve anything?

Looking forward to your "in depth de-brief "!

Man, reading this post is really making me want to do the LPE package. I am vacillating between the LPE package and the Turbo package that is being offered by Ultimate Performance. What to do?!
