Why would you crap up that truck with those awful rims? Come on man, have some style.


Just kidding, looks nice and clean. Avalanches are pretty nice.

Thanks though. It drives great.

I don't mean to hate but those numbers just don't look right for headers and exhaust(especially the torque).
I've been gone for a month. That thing called life lol.

Anyways, wanted to comment back on your statement. On this dyno back when I first put the car on there it "only" made 392rwhp/420rwtq. The dyno bay was 140 degrees and it was making peak power at around 5000rpms. I knew it had more in it as it made the 392rwhp at 5000rpms. That's what they make stock (for HP not TQ), and that engine redlines at 6500rpms. The torque curve just dropped like a rock and prevented it from making more power. The tuner (who was crap) said it was because of the weather and just reset the ECU when the weather is cooler.

I did, and it felt "better" up top. I tracked it and did 11.78 @ 121.7mph on a street tire. I then went to a Vette dyno day recently and was shocked at how much knock the engine was having. Once again, it put down somewhat low numbers. Peak power once again only around 5000rpms as the torque curve dipped down hard about 40lb/tq at 5000rpms. Made around 405/410 +/- a few. I went back to the original installer and put it on the same dyno with a much more experienced tuner. I now have the 427/445 numbers. So same dyno went from 392-->427 and from 420-445.

Here's granny shifting showing you the power/acceleration on the 427/445 numbers. It doesn't hook well in first.

Lol it's a stick shift. You aren't going to be doing much better without slapping the clutch down mega hard, which no sports car owner enjoys doing. I don't even like doing that in my crappy truck.

Funny, I saw a V8 Vantage convertible while leaving work. I drove past the same one on the highway a few weeks ago. It's a black rag top. Very nice. Not the nicest I've seen here though. That title belongs to a V12 Vantage that I saw near my house. Black, low, and sexy as hell those things are.
