Ya spec is between 5-7 degrees I have it set to 9.1 left and 9.2 right LOL. That was the first thing I did when she hit the shop. Really good eye Wierdo124 I noticed it in that pic but didn't think anyone else would.

ya she is really wide and well built it surprised me to find he gas tank in the trunk surronded by a full roll cage and using what look to be a fuel cell. It is still 200 lighter then a GT mustang the same year and 500 lighter then a Cobra. I guess that wieght is where the aluminiun engine saves it. As for as mods I was amazed to see how much of a difference on the dyno just exhast and intake makes with this enigine. It's like they built it waiting o be woken up.

Also look at the power band on that sheet it is so flat on torque it's awesome. and the horse power just keeps climbing. From what I red just changing the intake manifold will help high RPM power since the OE one is restrictive.

Thanks Guys I want to see more of yours Twistedboi get some pics up. Did you find out about the exhaust yet?
I just said I found it hard to believe maybe because I know these cars make power, it was just weird seeing such low numbers on that dyno sheet on the first page. But yeah, I've noticed once you hit about 2k RPM, the LS2 roars to life and the power just keeps climbing. I love it.

I did look at my exhaust and the guy must have taken everything off. I don't know if he took the computer either, I have no way to know. But soon here I'm going to be buying the SLP LoudMouth to put back on and either get a svedespeed ram intake(check LS1GTO), or a Vararam CAI(PFYC or Summit Racing). They are both like the Camaro/Firebird/TA intakes where there's about 2 inches of tubing from the TB and then the filter. No crazy bends or anything. Just unadulterated cold air and especially with our hood vents, the filter sits RIGHT behind them.

I noticed on mine the other day too that when you turn the castor is ridiculous. Guess it's too help our heavy front end stay on the road through turns. These cars have a weight distribution of 55/45. Front heavy.

And I will get pictures soon, hold on. I've been working and been with my girlfriend basically every day and haven't touched a computer. I also have to wash my car because she is DIIIIIRTY. Everytime I wash it I either: a. Go through a puddle or: B. It snows ONE day. So yeah.

Which loud mouth are you buying the I or II? They do sell just the badging he may have just rebadged the car If it was programmed it would have the low temp t-stat. What temp is your motor running? The instrument cluster will tell you exact temp on the display options menu do you know how to find it? I was looking at those intakes to but I'm going to stick with mine for one it's already there and I just didn't like the unfinished look of those.

I did some clean up work today and repainted the engine covers also stripped the air cleaner lid down to metal. In the pics it looks orange but on the car it's a bright red. I don't know why it looks that way. may be because I took them on ISO.
