    FS/FT 1998 388 RWHP Formula

    I got this car back in January and the only thing I have done is put a new set of 245x50x16's and on it and a oil change. The car has been mistaken for a 3800 v-6 car do to plain white paint and 16inch rims. The car is EXTREMELY cold natured in the mornings. You have to idle it around 2k rpms for 2-3 mins before you can move it. The last owner said it dyno'ed 398 rwhp thru the full exhuast system but I can not provide documents to prove it. I can provide a copy of a 388 RWHP pull that was done the same day as the 398 RWHP pull. They tuned it alittle more with LS1edit to get 398. I have never raced it nor did the prior owner tell me what it ran in 1/4 but I would assume from other cars with similiar mods it would run low 12's high 11's. I possess a huge amount of reciepts to reflect most if not all of the work done to the car. I have the clear/clean Texas title in my possession in my name. I maybe put 300 miles a month on it since I got it. Needs to go to someone who will abuse it. I would like to trade this care for a 1996-1999 STOCK to Mild A4 SS Camaro.

    You still have the car? I might be interested. Does it use any oil, or have any mechanical issues, aside from the cold start issue you mentioned?
