smaller hole for the oil to go threw. This causes more oil pressure in the lifters.

0-60 in under 5 seconds. Hehehe I haven't time'd it.. I can make the tires do 0-60 in way less than 1 second. Traction is the issue. the more power you put under the hood, the harder it is to control.

I can't brake the 5 second mark with street tires. I need to try with my slicks.
