If I had a ton of cash, I'd blow a blower onto my NorthStar...but more realistically headers and maybe a turbo is better...

But an SC'd 4.4L V*8??? !!! HELLO :o

Oh it does, The owner of Corsa, Jim Browning Jr. and drives the white STS on their site, sent me there dyno graphs a while a go. They gained +21 at the WHEELS!!! There claim of 25 HP is at the crank I believe. When I put the STS Kit on my Aurora I was amazed at how much harder my 4.0 V8 pulled. Us Aurora guys at edmunds.com there was/is 6-7 Corsa kits on 4.0 Auroras, couple classics and some +01'* too. We all agreed that the performance and sound was amazing. We figured that with .6 liters less engine displacement we would under rate it at a gain of +16 at wheels.

Can't say enough good things about CORSA. Stainless steel everything and %100 straight thru design for OPTIUM PERFORMANCE. Can't wait till they come out with the GTP tuned muffler system, I hear sometime this winter early spring for the release date. I'm all over those bad boys.

CAN'T WAIT!!!!

Eaton may be in the works for a Northstar supercharger; bolt up hardware, very spendy though. Good things ahead for GXP owners with a big budget
