    Dont know what they came with. I am guessing so but I would imagine they turned that crap off.

    The answer can be found a few posts back. Post #16...see below.

    My car made about 280 RWHP but made 365 ft*lbs at like 2500 rpm while LS1 cars usually make 300 to 350 RWHP and 325 to 350 ft*lbs at 4000 to 4500 rpm.
    This is just a rough comparison. The horsepower number is directly related to the mph in the quarter mile. Higher horsepower will give you higher mph.
