    Research GMMG a bit and you should be able to find it... I'm not 100% sure, but the stage ones really arent THAT modded out...

    Also Y is this in forced induction?

    Blackbirds dyno 337 at the real wheels according to an article ive read. Thats more like 400 at the engine imo. A blackbird is pretty much a full bolt on ls1 with stock gearing as far as the engine goes. If you look at the engine pics you will see they come stock with long tube headers, but do not list them on the spec sheet. Kind of strange.

    "The Black Bird´s performance is very impressive, doing 0 to 60 mph in just 4.40 seconds, and turning the quarter mile in 12.87 seconds at 111 mph. The cat back 3 chambered exhaust system provides increased horsepower and an impressive note reminiscent of the late 1960´s muscle cars. The under-drive pulley system delivers 337 horsepower to the rear wheels. The dimpled rotors add additional cooling to the 4 wheel disc brakes, and the lowered suspension offers improved handling and control.
    The Black Bird appearance package features dual 380 HP hood accent stripes, Black Bird Cloisonné hood and fender badging, Metallic Silver rear lower panel, all new silver face gauges on the instrument panel, nostalgic black shift ball, auto dimming rearview mirror with compass, Mobil 1 oil fill cap and decal, car cover and floormats with embroidered Black Bird logo.
    Only 50 Black Birds were produced. Each car´s number is displayed on the windshield and rear view mirror, and is stamped on the engine and exhaust manifold. The Black Bird was only offered as a complete package, and only from Carl Black."
