    Good, I'll let the racing talk, I just hope to have a lot of fun races. I had a twin turbo 2v a couple of years ago, it ran pretty good and was a lot of fun. My red cobra was a 6-speed, have not driven yet with 4R, but, hoping it gives the f-body gang a ford to contend with. There is some very fast shit coming, I can't wait.

    You'll love the auto. What converter and valve body did you go with?

    Good kill and I agree straight line performance in these car are a little disappointing...

    My SS L99 auto ($20k less)with a custom tune, high flow cats and intake(less than $1000 installed) will do mid 12's @112 all day on 20inch street tires.

    The auto ZL1 puts down around 480/500 like 20% Drivetrain loss
    The manual around 500/500 a little less than 15%
    Drivetrain loss says crank rating about right to me.

    Change the pulley with a tune and these cars can put down some numbers.

    In the end I'd take a ZL1 over a Boss but definitely not over a 13'GT500.
