    Here's my dirty assed car on the dyno, mods: X-pipe, RotoFab CAI, My tuning.

    And my dyno:

    Looks like I could have wrung another 5 or so out of it, hit knock retard at 5500 as it power was still climbing, and under PE mode it was adding a little too much fuel running ~12.2-12.4, I want it ~13:1

    Over all I'm extremely happy, for comparison, here's a bone stock car:

    And a bunch of random other pictures:

    A mustang with some mods:

    Not enough mods though :mamoru:

    Here's the shop's car, 1 7/8" headers, no cats, full exhaust, CAI, VERY agressive tune:
    [​IMG]
    Apparently I need headers :eek3: :

    The only heads/cam G8 that showed up:

    G8 > GTO... suspension/brakes are WAY ahead. Interior is better quality too. Just wish they hadn't put such a baby cam in the damn thing. Oh well.

    Not loud enough lol. I cut out the center muffler/resonator, put an X with some straight pipes in, left the factory axle back, there wasn't a whole lot of sound difference, just enough to growl under WOT

    That heads/cam G8 makes some good power. I'd rock that as a DD.

    :wtf:

    How is the ZO6 even in that? It's a totally different car. Even the C5's, which I assume you're talking about.

    At idle, No. Sadly. Still silent, while cruising around I can hear a little difference, and under WOT I can here a decent difference. The stock rear mufflers are just too quiet.

    Was not aware of that, weird you'd think the GTO would get all the goodies since it's their "muscle" car.

    Yes, that one has headers and exhaust, but still the stock intake and tune :mamoru: it put down a pretty good number.
