yeah my buddy doug h makes custom Ram air hoods and CAI systems for the 2nd gen cummins, his truck was dynoed at something like 720hp and GOD ONLY KNOWS how much torque. He can leave 4 tread marks for way too long if he steps on it.

If you ever watch Trucks! on SpikeTV'* Powerblock you can usually see some kind of OBDII tuner for those turbodiesels from Bullydog or a similar vendor..... pretty impressive.

You are correct my friend.They also have BMW motorcycles. They use alot of under cover cars here in south carolina. I think they use alot of drug seized cars. I've seen anything from vetts , f150'* mustangs. You name it, They have it! Be carefull while driving in this state cause, you never know!

Pittsburgh used standard H bodies for many years. The Impala FWD police package does not use the SC engine.

I've got a white 92 SSE supercharged. Ever since I bought it 3 years ago I've wondered if it used to be an undercover police car. It'* got blue lights in the back bumper where there should be red reflectors and it'* got a transmission cooler. On the drivers side of the center console, almost behind the stereo, are two switches, a red one and a blue one. They aren't actually wired to anything. I haven't found any other major mods, but I haven't really looked too hard. I bet it was a detective'* car or something.

Sounds more like a volunteer firefighter or EMT owned it, and put in those mods for responding to calls. Former "undercover" police cars would look just like any other cars from the outside, as all the lights and other equipment are often portable (dash lights) and/or completely hidden. Still pretty cool tho, you better make sure those blue lights are legal to still have on the car.

Sorry, no pictures. I'm still not in the digital camera age yet. I'll have to take regular pics and scan 'em.

Like the Nash Metropolitan I saw at the local dragstrip a while back! Insane...
