    you'd have him by lengths easy. they dont have the grunt down low to even hang. but a dohc v6 making 287 aint too shabby in my book. dont know if an 04 gt makes 287 even....
    anybody....?

    i think they are just naive to what you have under the hood.
    i also think they are avoiding the fact that they are missing their ball sacks....

    hey it says that you are bone stock. You can do a few free mods that will help you gain a few very easy free hp.

    free ram air - cut up stock airbox letting in more air
    bump stop - let the throttle body blade open more than stock
    port and polish throttle body - smooths out flow lets in more air

    those and a few more can be found at installuniversity.com
    click on LSX vehicles then install documents
