    A4. The thing I liked most about it was how you sit in it, and how easy the engine was to get to. Ohh loved the key.

    04's LS1 put down 300'ish to the wheels...05's and 06's around 350'ish...
    sales people dont know shit...well when I was at 600 RWHP I drove her anywhere I wanted anytime...never in the rain though...600RWHP and Nitto's don't like each other and "side of the road" mud drifting ain't my thing....
    We went the extra mile with the new 402 Stroker to maintain some type of streetability....to this old man that is what it is about....Street Beast...Muscle Car...takes design and work to maintain some form of comfort on the street and still run low 10's at the track....
    oh yeah...The Key....I hired a lil fella from Brazil to carry it around for me....I put him in the trunk when I'm driving and then he jumps out a carry's it for me....you can put an eye out with that thing!

    Liked the seats and the window controls are in the console, where they should be anyway. It is a tight fit from side to side it really wraps arond you.I had planty of headroom, important for me being 6'3".Seemed almost to nice , like a baby Bonnville. No trunk , except for maybe some NOS bottles.....Didnt have that punch I have with my LT1, but that maybe because I had the salesperson with me. And it turned in the lot very easy. To bad it was that baby blue....

    I think the LS1 lacks the "punch" but more than makes up for the low end torque with torque throughout the power band....also the LS1 is so damn smooth...it is misleading....

    I have to agree with this. I was somewhat disappointed with the feel of my car when it was new. But at the track, it went 13.2 after a couple of trips. Its just so smooth, your butt-o-meter doesn't register it.

    Not really. More of a medium blue. 3 blues have been offered.

    Barbados Blue is a blue/green
    Impulse Blue is a bright/medium blue
    Midnight Blue is a dark/navy blue.

    I would consider the Barbados a baby blue.

    Here's a shot of mine

    That is a very good shade of blue. I have had two older f-bodys that color. The one I test drove was almost a powder blue. It was right beside a m6. Which I didnt drive because I didnt know the area well.
