    thats good because Im planing on getting one but no in the near future because Im saving for some UMI suspension SFC, RCA's, and tunnel brace mounted torque arm so I can have some traction when I get the torque converter

    If I punch it at 55 it will pin you back in the seat.. My dead spot is between 70 and 80 but after that it rolls!!

    I dunno if it'd work for you but a long long time ago when I had a v6 camaro....lol. I would push the gas just a bit to get it to jump a little and then floor it and it would drop much better...

    Is it nice and humid there in New Orleans?

    LS1's really love low humidity mixed with crisp cold air.

    Average humidity is between 70 and 100% and we had to have had 100% yesterday because it rained earlier in the evening. The humidity suck down here but when its cool and the humidity is low the cars run there asses off.

    I agree with pretty much everything the other guys said, except I noticed you said you let him get on it, and he was a car ahead of you... Well damn lol, Did ya think you was gonna ZIP by him in three seconds ? He has momentum on you by now, and he is probably already up his *cough* powerband/RPMS, so you have three things against you.. Distance.. Momentum and a flat spot for an A4..Use it as a life lesson and do not let it happen again LoL

    Apparently not. It whooped an LS1.

    I think I might know another reason that the car might not have been pulling as strong as it should have. The car is a 2002 with 32,000 miles that I just picked up last friday. The only thing ever done to it was an edel brock catback system. The guy that owned the car before me really never drove the car. It was a weekend car for him (just like it is for me). I drove it to work yesterday and one of my coworkers wanted to take a look at it. When I started the car and gave it a little gas. There was some black looking liquid that came out of the exhaust pipes onto the ground. It wasn't slick like oil but it was chalky followed by a little bit of smoke. My friend said that it wasn't nothing to worry about. That the car was just blowing out carbin (it stopped smoking after a short time). But it seems that every time I get on the car it starts to pull harder and harder. Yesterday evening I drove it to the store before work. I floored it and when it went to shift into second the tires broke lose and I thought that the ass end was going to come around on me. Scared the living shit out of me. If it pulls that hard stock I can't wait until I finnish with it.
