For some reason, I thought the SSE was quicker...but they are near identical in times.



It would have been a little faster had I not had any wheelspin

Keep in mind....those windows were up And yes, that car has something along the lines of tapshift....a nifty feature, but I hardly use it.

It felt pretty quick when I got a ride in it in October. I actually thought it would be a little faster than the L27.

and gotta love the FM 80

The First day I drove Brads car... First words out of my mouth were.... Oh Holy Torque Management.... That car has more go than the Puter lets it have..

Bone stock rating was 220 Ft Lbs and 200-210 HP iirc.... I could only imagine if it had no TQ management

We will find out in about 10k more miles.

Hopefully, by that time HP Tuners will support the '06 3.5 liter (They support the 3.9 for that year). Who knows...I may, uh....up the ante, if you will

8-9 seconds roughly, without any idea of how laggy, or off the speedo is?

Speedo should be accurate...no changes in stock tire size. And Don'* right...there is a crapload of TM, which I hope I can do away with once support for that PCM becomes more widespread.
