    I think you could take him... race him and find out. Even if you lose, you still paid a ton less to have a car that performs pretty close to the gt500

    Awesome, thanks guys. This is actually an older guy that is reliving his childhood days so he went out, grabbed a GT500, and he's racing everything in sight.

    Is this only because it's forced induction? I've heard turbo's & blower's don't "run out of breath" at their top end...

    Dude you would smoke one, from a dig they are 12.6-low 13 second cars. From a roll they got some power but not like a stroker would.

    So this car isn't built yet, and you want to race the old man?

    Watchout, with an exhaust, pulley, porting the blower and gears that GT500 is a low 10 car...

    It makes a substancial difference but not that 50something HP....maybe 10-15...which is decently high for just a filter
