I finally went and took the SSEi for a test drive. I immediately fell in love with it. It has every option, rebuilt SC, and new front clip, hood, and passenger fender I have to paint. I will say it is one of the most powerful cars i've ever drove (i'm 17). Only problem is that the ABS light is on because he had to pull the fuse, because the back tires are much bigger than the fronts and it was screwing up the ABS, and the airbag light is on.

Thats the diffrence between 185 ft lbs and 275 ft lbs... And the 3800 L67 makes its torque very strong from the word go.... This is one of the things the 3800 Excells in...

Glad you liked it..

I love it. I turned onto the road and floored it. IT started pulling left and right and I'm like WHOO!. I wanted to do a smoke rolling burnout, but that would have been rude. I cannot wait to get the car tuesday, I will snap some pics as soon as it gets in my driveway. I'm sitting right here now and I can hear the Nascar Truck series right down the road about a mile and a half.

That would be the "infamous" torque steer, it takes a little getting used to and it just gets worse after the smaller pulley

BTW....welcome to the family
