    Heres a 2003 s/c281

    375 hp and 415 torque
    Very impressive, but is that not flywheel hp that is rated. If using 12% drivertrain loss that's 375x.12=45....374-45=330hp to the wheels. obviously there is something wrong with the cars I have seen or the people driving them are retards.

    The S281 Extreme's are much more impressive. The standard blown S281's are good for high 12's - low 13's, on street rubber that is.

When will they build something at a decent price that can lead the competition and keep it in production for a good amount of years?
    My personal opinion is that they do this to keep the value high and exclusivity.

    They made Extreme's in the 99-04 body style. Here is a 2003 Extreme with the Berryliam clearcoat paint.

    Wow. Pretty neat how they have specs for all of the years. I gained respect for them back when I saw that 351R run. That thing was nasty! If Ford would have dropped the 5.8L in it's production Mustang it would of gave us GM guys a good run for our money.

    Isn't that the Cadillac logo in the pic? Also, for that price I would rather have the new Z06 anyways

    Only ones to really be worried about are the blown S351's. They will give an F-body a real challenge, but what else would you expect from a blown 5.8L.
