    i'm hoping for numbers north of 420 rwhp and know it'll cost a lot of dough. But i'm on an f/i kick as of late and am just exploring my options. I'd love to auto-x my ws.6 some time so let me know what you guys think.

    You need good torque down low to roar out of the corners.

    You will be easily able to attain those numbers going N/A.

    triple-black
    2000 CamaroSS convertible

    N/A cause you want the power to come predictably and pretty linearly... f/i will usually make the power come very fast at certain rpms.... which can unstable the car... just get a nice stroker w/ h/c.
    that's what i have...
