She goes like stink, and driving the manual is a blast. Inside and out, top to bottom, she is in absolutely mint shape.

Love those T/A'* There is no excuse to have two dirty black rides. You should moderate less and wash more. HaHaHa

Looking Great Roy! I'm always a sucker for a well dressed girl in Black. Looks like your enjoying a light Indian Summer same as us. I cant believe the better November we are enjoying vs. the cold wet October. Mother Nature'* more than a bit mixed up this year all around. Does the T/A start to "float" @ 140, or still stable?

Nothing I detected on a straight line stretch of freshly paved highway.

The GXP seemed a bit slippery 10 more MPH. It is was a cool night on a stretch of old concrete road. Back down pretty quick when I noticed a loss of steering response. I still had the front airstuts on, camber not correct, and my airdam is more than 1/2 sanded away front cruising low in town. Love to be in a position to see where that T/A could take you with the slight mods and Tremac.

The LS1 is a fantastic engine. Doesn't take a lot to get it up over 500 HP, and 750 HP is well within reach for not a lot of money. Heads, cam, and performance exhaust go a long way. Then you can get into super or turbo charging, which is well developed and has excellent systems available for reasonable costs. With the upgraded tranny, the weak point is the rear end. That will be the first mod before we (my son and I) start thinking about engine work.
