    i abide by the 'majority' of the laws, but one's that are just plain stupid, i'll take the chance. funny thing is while i was stopped i was counting the number of cars going the other direction w/no front plate...

    infact the trooper was in front of me, about a 1/4mi up the highway, w/traffic blocking my view of him (and vice versa) until he pulled off through the grass shoulder, back on to the frontage road traveling northbound, passes me, then pulls back through the grass shoulder back onto the highway to pull me over. reason: no front plate. im not stupid, i know the shit was called in. he wasnt able to see me period until he pulled his little stunt. i played his game, trying to be polite and nice, while trying to reframe from laughing my ass off for his little powertrip speech. this was just south of Gainesville traveling southbound on I-35...

    but whatever...

    oh, any 4th gen Camaro or Firebird looks bad w/a front plate, PERIOD...

    Front birds that don't match the color of the car don't look good either.

    went from an Ls6 intake and stock Ls1 TB, to a FAST 90/90 setup and gained 35rwhp/10rwtq over the Ls6 setup...

    That's about right, but wouldn't you think most of your gain came form the intake vs. TB? I've heard from folks that run dynos that they are good for about 3 h.p. if even!! Is that worth it? Now they say on S.C. and turbo engines they can tell the h.p. diff. 5-15 h.p.. I'm still stock and can't see investing money on something I'll not notice.

    cant say. its a package and as such the parts are ment to complement eachother...

    i mean sure, if one could put the stock TB on a FAST 90 intake and dyno, it would yield "x" result. then swap to the 90mm TB and see "y" result. that would be the only way your question could be answered...
