I am concerned about the mufler at inspection time issue.
eh, they're too childish over there. that and far to biased. you have the intense haters, and the intense appologetics. not a good way to find out the truth me thinks
I've been looking around LS1 forums, and I've only been able to find 1 (yes 1) person who wrote his impressions of driving his friends STS system. All the others were written from magazines and such, who'* wording sounded a little too close to the company kool-aid for me to take as 100% truth. anyhew, this guy'* impression was that it was nice, but there was a noticable turbo lag. Which is pretty well what you'd expect, with the turbo mounted that far back.
I still think it'll be a nice power added for those who were looking for something better, but I don't know how 'streetable' the power will be - if it spools around 3500 or so. My L36 right now stays below 3500 prolly 70-80% of the time, so it'* not something I would see a benefit from.
but again, I'm glad there'* another option out there for people to consider.
