I got one , but it's what someone did ....not what they said. I love both Trans Am's and Z28's but this made me a little mad. I seen this red firebird with white ss ralley stripes down the hood trunk and hatch and Z28 emblems on the fenders. I don't know why but it made me want to punch the guy in the face for being a stupid ass. And I always get nice camaro or Z28 When it's a Trans Am. I just walk away or turn my head like I didn't even hear them

Not a question, but still dumb. Knew a girl with a '97 TA who insisted that she had to specially order the "corvette engine" and that it was only an option in '97... she wouldn't believe me that it was standard, much less that the '97 vette had a different engine than her car...

Yes, however the '97 vette had an LS1, hence why I said "'97 vette". And either way, it was standard, not a "special order option only available in '97".

I won so my boy was giving me credit and pointing to my car, the Red Chevy Camaro SS literally 30 feet away, when some guy actually pipes up and says damn thats clean. A Civic right? i was fucking speechles. I let my friend and the other 4 guys there defend my honor and set him straight. oh yea man card revoked.

haha these are halarious
I out ran a mustang really bad one day, and he said what kind of gear you have I said 2.73 (back before my gear) he called me a liar and looked at my vin and pointed and siad this car comes with a 3.73

after this he said i had nitrous cause my box was in the trunk unhooked and I just agreed and said i had wireless and hoseless nitrous lol

another day my buddy has a tt300zx, but before when it was a n/a he kept bubbling at idle so i suggested to change his pcv and a kid rode by and said what are ya'll doing I said installing twin turbos they were so involved in checking the pcv's out he wanted to know where he could get these tiny turbos from haha

I always get the " nice Camaro" but i think the best one was when i was at a stop light and some guy in a van pulls up to me and said "wow that is nice is that a 2008?" sure is man I have the only 2008 TA on the streets.

You think thats bad? I ran into my cousin one day and was driving my '69 C10. He was with some of his dipshit friends and one of them goes, "Thats a nice truck man." I say thanks, and he proceeds to ask me what year it is. He goes "What year is that think, a '96?" I couldn't stop laughing long enough to get '69 out...

A girl once asked if my car was a 5 speed, I said no its a 6 speed. She looked at me funny and told me I was counting reverse cause her brother had a 99 cobra and it was a 5 speed, I told her its a 7 speed if you want to count reverse.

I've also had people ask if my car was 4 speed.

Not really a dumb question asked to me. But I asked a guy a simple question about his 2010 SS. My brother, and I were talking about seeing if he would know what series motor he had in his car.

Me: What series motor do you have in your camaro?
Him: 6.2 Liter
Me: No, I meant what series? like LS1, etc...
Him: Oh I dont know...*puzzled look on his face*
Me: *drives away*

Everytime i stop for gas in eastern europe the conversation goes EXACTLY:

Random guy: Dam what size motor is it?
Me: (Pointing at 6.0 on the back, or sometimes on the fender) 6.0 Litres
RG: wow!!!! How much horsepower?
Me: 400 (yes i know its not 400 at the wheels but easier to say then to explain wheel hp)
RG: Holy shit does it have a turbo?
Me: No, just 6.0 litres.
RG: haha "just 6.0 litres"

Whenever im not driving my car I love messing with people that have camaros/mustangs just for the laughs. Every time I see a loud newer style 96-08 mustang I always yell "Let me hear that five o!!!" The cobra guys really hate this. We had a blast doing this at mustang week.

I pulled up on a new rt challenger a while back and roll down the window to get a better to see if he was a srt8 and worthy of a race. He notices me looking and rolls down his window and tells me that I dont want any that it has the v8 in it and im thinking to my self "yea the small one" but actually say, " ive got $500 right now and I will give u any race u want!". He then ask what is that a g6, I took that slap in the face pretty well. I tell him no its a gto and hes like oh. He then tells me he dont have any money but will run me for fun. I say ok lets hit the freeway. The light turns green and he rolls into 1st and then hammers on it and his car bites down and takes off. I catch up after his little display trying to scare me off. Then I proceed to give him a quik wot (2secs top)pull just to show off my bov. anyways Im on street tires and I chirped the shit out of them going 35mph and get a lil squirly ansd let out. he pulls up to me and tell me that he dont want any part of my car and have a good night. this all happened in a matter of 30-40 secs but is taking me a paragraph to explain.

I show up at my brother in laws house on the Gsxr and my niese is there with her boyfriend. He ask me how fast will the bike run and i tell him i have only been 160 ish on it. Then he tells me his car will smoke my bike! I was impressed so i asked him what he had and how he knew this. He said , " My 95 monte carlo will run 170 because my friend with a crx raced me and he said i was doing 170 cause my speedo dont work." I turned to my niese and said, " You are dating a fucking idiot." She said, " His car is a stock v6."

At work I was talking to a Mustang buddy at work about racing and I said how I want to replace my 10 bolt rear with a 12 bolt since the stocker is weak and another guy said "so you can make the axle stronger by putting more bolts in there?" I just said yea and continued talking to the Mustang guy, at least he admits my car is faster.

Oh noes someone suckered her into getting MSD coils. What a useless, expensive mod that is for something that in some cases is worse than the stock piece. Look at any 12-9 second LSX build and 9 times out of 10 you'll see stock coils.

I was picking up some oil from checker yesterday and the sales clerk was like

clerk:what year is you Camaro?
me: '98
clerk: thats cool I had an '02 but mine was a Z28 not an SS
me:... Mine is a Z28.
clerk: What? it says SS on the side. Oh my bad I didnt look hard enough.
me: ...

Then he proceeds to tell me how he liked his Z28 because it was lighter than the other years (i dont know why he thought that.). Then I had to explain that his was not rated at 350hp like he thought from factory and blah blah so on and so forth. I asked him where it was and he was like

Clerk: well it was an M6 w/o traction control and I was drifting this turn and there was gravel and when I hit it ASR kicked in and that put me into a pole.

Me: ..., Ok goodnight.

I mean really, cmon.

When i came to my gf's house for the first time her step dad (40yrs old, no job just took 4 years to get a 2 year degree and total d-bag) asks me if i want to race her moms 07 Mustang gt for pinks, i said yes please! They still thought her car was faster than mine up until the point where i showed them a video of me running 12s lol

getting gas in downtown seattle a guy walks up and statrs cleaning my windows and is like how fast is this thing man, i was like oh high twelves nothing special, he follows by saying i need to get a chip and id be able to go 200 MPH!!!!! i gave him 2 bucks and said thanks

a guy in a 03 mustang gt with exhaust asked if my car was a v-6 as i was idling next to him with long tubes, true duals and dumped bullets

he now finally admits defeat in all straight line, so now we are taking it to autocross, im settin up my suspension for autox now haha

Exact opposite situation with that one, STI's pretty much dominate the autox's we do out here. It's an uphill battle but there are lots of f-bodies making good times as well.

I went to Jiffy Lube one time to get my car inspected. They had to put it on some rollers to do the emissions check. Well, the guy pulls my '95 Camaro Z28 onto the rollers backwards. It was an older guy, and a younger had to tell him it's a rear-wheel drive car.

Was driving around with the girl friend one night. We pulled into the sonic, where everyone chills, different groups bikers low riders and hot rodders. Well I decided to open the cut outs that night so as I'm pulling through sonic I'm attracting alot of attention lol and I find an open stall to order some drinks. After I shut the car off 2 guys are staring at my car. They are standing next to an older shelby GT 500 on some huge ass slicks.

They finally come over to say what's up and ask if I wanna race. I say Well not tonight guys I'm on street tires. They start rambling on about their friends car and then they ask if my car is stock and if I'm running the stock exhaust...
lol I couldn't help but start laughing, Seriously if you can't tell the difference from a stock vehicle with stock exhaust and a cammed open exhaust vehicle you must be a retard!

Sorry for such a long post thought it was pretty funny at the time though!

Well the guy that asked if it was a V6... was driving a stock LT1... and I pulled up while right next to him while he was filling his car at the gas station.

At least the people who ask if it has and LS1 always look at it funny before they ask. (I bet it's the tails and possibly the dash [when the windows are down])

Some retard at the local cruise night driving a mazda mx-6 (at least choose a good mazda if your going to talk shit) told me that my engined weighed so much that it offsets any horsepower advantage I have over him. Hmmm so we have super heavy ALL-ALUMINUM engines?:gay:

was talking to a kid from school about cars as we walked through the parking lot. he was telling me about the 300hp focus he used to have, and how when he'd race he'd shift at "times 5" rpm(meaning the x5 on the tach as in 5k). then we got to my car and he goes "nice car, who makes it?"

then another kid from the same class(who drives a v6 mustang) saw and heard my car. he goes "yeah its stupid loud, is it a GT?"

sooo sad. i didn't laugh at either. i couldn't. it was depressing.

pulled into a gas station this weekend idling at 1250 loping away and shut the car off at the pump. There was a kid next to me in a riced out maxima (looked like it came right off the fast and the furious set) that looked at me and asked if it was fast.
I said "yea it goes ok".
Then he told me "hey my friends got a hatchy (which i later determined to be a civic after a google search) with cams and nos you should race some time" I just chuckled, then he asked me "does yours have nos or cams in it?"

I looked at him and said "nope its just got a really bad skip, u know a good garage?", the look on his face was priceless.

The following is a REAL experiance at the chicago auto show a few years ago.

"looking at the new Turbo cobalt SS"

Me and a friend were talking about how much more potential it has then the S/c one and then a salesman comes over and says

"Its supercharged you know?"
(we look at each other)
i pont at the spec sheat and say "it says turbocharged"

Salesman in disbelief looks and then shouts to another knowledgable chevy representative " hey bob is this thing supercharged or turbocharged?"

"bob" replies: Both!(he was dead serious)

He also might have been talking about an AE86 Corolla (80s, RWD). They are known as "Hatchiroku" (sp), or "Hatchi" for short.

Technically forced induction is all "supercharging." Turbos actually used to be called "Turbo-superchargers." Maybe that's what he meant... :secret2:

Someone once called me at 10pm one night and ask how much a stock stering wheel weighed and would he go faster if he put one in without a airbag.... true story BTW and the funny part is he just posted in this thread

In my defense, I didn't ask if it would go any faster...

New one from a local Corvette Dealer..... I pull up in my 2002 Z28. I'm looking at all the other Fbodys this guy has and some of the C5's as the C6's are way past my price range still...

Well I start asking this guy about hp, he has one of the Dark Blue SLP's, and a few others. Im trying to find a pretty modded out Fbody and a similar modded Vette for comparisons to see if its worth getting the Vette... "and it would be...but thats another story"


Ok anyways, I'm asking hp questions, questions on the mods etc... I start looking at an LS1 C5 Vette. I ask him the hp, he says 350hp. So I ask to the wheels? He says probably gets 320hp to the wheels...... umm ok... I ask him if its stock, he says it is, so I say, "probably more like 300 to the wheels, which is what mine gets roughly"

He then looks at my Camaro, and tells me that the Camaros didn't get 300hp to the wheels that the 2002 Z28 was rated at 305 hp and it would only put 240 hp to the wheels.... So then I ask him why it is the same exact engine in the Corvette puts down 320 buy his claim buy my Z28 only 240 with the exact engine. He then tells me because the Corvette is better in every way and put down more hp, and the Z28's only put down 240. Then I ask him about the SLP Camaro, and he tells me it puts down 340 hp to the wheels. And then I ask him how come his car puts down 100hp more then mine does, and he says because its an SLP and it has Ram Air and other "random slp" parts.

By this time I'm pretty upset with this guy who sells Vettes and Fbodys... because he basicly told me my car because its a Z28 is slow and the SS is way faster. Told me the only way to put 300 hp to the wheels on a z28 was full boltons, "but the slp has 340..."
He goes and asks his mechanic guy, how much hp do they put down, the mechanic says 260hp. I say "that's closer to the LT1 I have the LS1". Then the guy goes, "oh well maybe 280hp" I said "try 300" he goes "what mods" I said "None just the LS6 intake" then he goes, "oh well if he has the LS6 intake then he can maybe hit 300" WTF!!! LS6 intake is STOCK on 01-02 Fbodys...

Ok so now I'm pretty annoyed but I want to see this "340rwhp" SLP on the road.. Its a 6 speed.

Guy jump in with me, and after testing it out... I felt NO SOTP difference in my Z28 "although it was cooler cause I had the little hood bump ROFL". Well I tell the guy that the engine is no more powerful then mine, in-fact, probably about dead even with my A4 3.23 car. So I want to test drive on of the C5's instead. I i jump in a 2001 Z06 with Hot Cam/Ported heads stock LS6 intake stock exhaust "which the guy told me you couldn't upgrade cause it was the best ever even though it was dead quiet at 6k rpms."

He tells me they don't let customers test drive their Corvettes only the Camaros/Mustangs. Guy wants like 18k for the vette, 14k for the SLP.....???? 4k is that much different???

Well anyways, he takes me for a ride instead, and admitadly it was a FAST car, but I expected that out of an LS6 with ported heads and a cam but not the fabled golden apple he was trying to sell it as....


Moral of the story, when I do decide to buy a new car, Fbody or Vette, I'll try to buy it from LS1TECH because at least on here you guys are not stupid..


""OH side note, mechanic claimed LS1 cars were mid 14 second cars.........???""

Two guys were walking close enough for me to hear and one says "damn thats a nice car". The other says "yea and its got the 326, thats a hemi you know". I chuckled to myself and kept walking but they were actually having a conversation about how badass those Hemi's were.

Hell im usually the one offering people to drive anyways, I WANT them to know how great my car is, and i think this is the best way of showing off too lol

Plus i got insurance and a waranty but in the end it is just a car. Pieces of metal working together, i love it yea, but if it goes it will just be a great excuse to move on.

Now i dont like go up to total strangers and ask them lol but almost all of my friends. And i make sure they beat on it and give it some good pulls, thats what i bought it for in the end so i dont mind if thats how it is driven.

Also i dont teach people to drive stick with it, well alright maybe just a few lol bt those are the exceptions

They're kind of dumfounded when I tell them its a regular old 350 TBI Chevy under the hood and it gets about 15-16mpg in town and 25mpg on the highway with just me in it. It does way better on gas than their stupid SUV that's 1/2 the size.

But the funniest thing is when the same buddy mentioned above and I went to drop his 97 Z28 off for warranty work at the dealership. We were standing there with the service writer who was asking my buddy the typical car info questions: make, model, year, etc. Now the car was 5 feet from us and the guy already asked for make, model, manual or auto..... he looked up and asked my buddy "2 or 4 wheel drive?" At the same time, with extremely suprised looks on our faces, we replied "its a Camaro". And he said "yeah, but I need to know if its 2 or 4 wheel drive." We busted out in laughter!

Was at a gas pump and a younger kid walks over to me from his honda. It wasn't a riced out honda, just mild appearance mods as far as I could see.

Kid: Hey, that car sounds pretty good.
(I'm immediately surprised, generally young honda owners don't appreciate V8 sound)
Me: Thanks, I've done some work to it.
Kid: You take it to the track?
Me: yep, when ever I get the chance.

Kid is standing by my trunk, I thought he was looking at my exhaust but he makes a funny face and points at the 6.0 emblem on the back.

Kid: What's that 6.0 mean?

Me: That's the size of the engine, it's a six liter.

Kid looks at me like I grew an extra head on my shoulder.

Kid: That's crazy.

Kid walks back to his car. He had to be in his late teens at best, so I'll cut him some slack on car knowledge. But I'm going to guess by how he acted, he might rethink that upgrade he was planning to a 1.8 liter.

Well he poped the hood on it, needless to say it was a V6 and i pointed that out to the guy and he says that its a V8 that the 3800 series II stamped on the intake showed that it was a Highway patrol car. Lmao. so i nooded and got in mine and left. Two days later I seen him out and he tries to run me, right?

im sitting at the strip just hanging out with some friends and this guy comes up and points at my engine and asked "is that thing stock"

another good one is when im sitting at a light people will see my car shaking and hear the loping idle and still roll down there window and ask me if i got a cam.

i dont know if its just me but i might give people to much credit and assume they might know what they are talking about when they comment on a car.

I just found this thread and spend like that last 3 hours reading it. So I'll add some.
I took my car to the alignment shop the other day and this happened
guy: Dude there is something really wrong with your car it shakes really bad at idle
me: Yeah that cuz of the cam and the poly motor mounts
guy: no its the driveshaft it needs to be balanced :bang:

another one a friend of mine that says he knows a lot about cars was over when i was putting my motor in and pointed to my injectors and asked "Why are your spark plugs up there?"

^ its amazing he could tell it needed to be balanced while it wasn't spinning :eyes:

I got this a few months back. "So your car has the F1 motor right?" I was so stunned by the question I couldn't help but to just stare and try and think of some way of not making him feel horrible by my response.

It was a question I asked this summer. We had a yard sale a couple days before and I had by bike in front to draw attention. A guy in a grey z28 stops and looks at the bike seems cool. He wants the bike with and I pay like 5 grand for the car so 10 for this car pretty much i decline he takes off and the care sounds decent.
Two days later same car no hood diferent driver. I'm in my ss with the t-tops out. I ask what do you have done to it? he answers " its got a corvette motor in it". I roll my window up and slow down. :bang:

I was at the dealership the other day looking at Tahoes for my wife. Meanwhile this lady and her friend comes up to me and said "Is that your corvette? It sounds like its about to die." (I have a huge cam and an agressive lope, well tuned and loud as hell....and some other goodies) Anyways, my wife gets aggrevated with them and says "No its fine, he has a big cam." ;)

I was driving my 01 SS (big healthy cam lope and all) and I had someone pull up next to me at a light and ask me what I had done to it.

I told him it was pretty much stock with exhaust and a cam. He asked me what engine was in it, I told him LS1. He then asked me if it was fuel injected and could not believe that it was. He even asked if I converted it to fuel injection. I just said "Yep.. Fuel injection is stock on these things" and drove off.

That was a face-palm moment.

I had someone riding along with me once, and I floored it for a few seconds just dicking around. The first question out of their mouth:

"Did you just open up the other barrels on the carb?"

It was kinda hard to explain...

me: "I need a distributor rotor for a 66 mustang 200 i6"
guy: brake rotor?
me: no ignition rotor it goes in the distributor.
guy: oh ok
(guy fumbles through computer)
guy: uh sir I dont believe they made a mustang in 66 i cant find it.
me: you know what your right but would you mind telling me what kinda car I'm driving outside. Its the green one with 66 on the license plate and mustang written on the side

years ago, back in high school, one of the kids on my baseball team said his mom had a '62 Mustang he was gonna restore. I said "do you mean 64? or maybe 72?" he said "no, a 1962" I replied " that thing is worth millions then cause its the only one in existence!"

I always get the "What is that, is that a Corvette?".

I see more ricer flybys than I can count, I actually had a LS1 T/A pull one when he saw me, I just kept on crusing.

And every damn time I go into the auto parts store I tell them "1994 Camaro Z28", and get "is that a V6 or V8?" in return. You think they would know that after working that kind of job.

I open the door, and I'm not even out of the car when a REALLY skinny redneck oil tech moron, and a tall black dude car wash guy walk over (he was nice at least).

Redneck: Hey, my buddies cadillac would whoop your ass
Car Wash Guy: No way man, I would lose. I got a (some 60/70s caddy I forget which).
Me: Oh nice, Big block?
Car Wash guy: Yep, 442.
Redneck: Embarassed, stares at me like I cut off his mullet

Fuckin' Eclipses!! I hate those turds!! I raced a new body style one about 7 years ago in my dad's 94 half ton Chevy 4 wheel drive farm truck. I smoked that car bad, it was pretty sad. It was a good race too, the kid was actually a descent driver, just didn't have enough car to beat a dirty farm truck. The best part is I was shifting an NV-4500 5 speed, not bad to shift, but they aren't exactly a Jerico either!! That kid was pissed needless to say!!:D

i took my 78 TA to an autox once. i had more people come up and talk/ask me about it then i ever do with my 02. while i had the hood up letting it cool between runs, a typical ricer comes up and asks:

how big is that motor?
me: 400
oh.....whats that in liters?
me :rolleyes: 6.6
wow!! thats huge!! i had 3 cars and all 3 of them dont add up to 6.6!!

i can only imagine what he would have said if i had a 455, which is 7.2 liters.

Now see i dont think thats such a stupid question as most of the cadillacs of the era were fwd. And while to you and other automobile afficianados the Fleetwood brougham might look way different then the FWD ones, in reality they are quite similiar, even to cadillac people.

You can't really blame the kids for not understanding cubic inches. Civics don't impress the ladies when you say 97 cubic inches as the guy next to you has 400. Even an S2000 wouldn't be as cool as the S120

I was at O'RLYs and a kid that works there with a riced Probe, who somehow lost his license in it, asked if my car was for sale.

Of course, I said "anything is for sale for the right price."

In which he responded, "Oh, well I don't want it, it probably doesn't even have a WS6 in it anyway."

I said, "you're right," and walked out... :bomb:

I have a 89 Turbo Trans Am, which has the pace car stickers on the door and the full date of the Indy 500 that it paced. Some post office guy at a gas station walks out and says are you the original owner of this car?

When I go to the parts stores to get generic small block Chevy items, no matter what I'm working on, usually some kind of car that didn't come with the SB thats in it, I alway say 76 Chevy, 1/2 ton, 4WD, automatic transmission, and vynal floor, hand crank windows, gun rack, and its blue....

I know what you mean, parts stoor guys have no concept of an engine swap!! I love going to the parts store to get random parts for my Nova and tell them I'm working on an 03' Yukon because of the 5.3 swap!! It's also funny to get parts for a 2.5 ton C60 we have, and tell them its a 96 Chev truck because of the Vortec headed 350 we built for it!! Ah.. parts stores are fun!!!

Yeah, parts store guys are priceless!! Just because they got a raise to 7.50/hour from the minimum they were making, they think they must be some automotive savvy bastard!! When I think about some of the local parts store guys I deal with from time to time I just have to laugh. I know the guy that owns the local O'Reilly store, pretty smart dude, done a lot of racing, and he said he can't find anyone that is worth a shit to work in his store!! He said that asside from not having any auto knowledge, most of them have zero customer service skill either. My buddy owns a wrecking yard/parts business, I usually get what I can from him. Little shit like clamps, hoses, oil, etc... I have break down and go to the parts store for. Grin and bear it I guess!!

One more parts store story: My brother has a 71 Nova that used to have a 400 SB in it. he said before he learned that you have to lie about what you are working on to get the parts you need, he said one guy told him that it's impossible that he has a Nova with a 400 in it!! My bro says that he realizes the car came with a 350, but now it has a 400!! The parts guy told him that since the car never came with a 400 he can't get him stuff for it!!! My brother said, have a nice day, and went some place else. He said he quickly realized that you don't dare tell them what you are really working on!!

There is an autozone by my house and of course its full of the fools that I have to tell them everytime its a 1995 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am 5.7 V8. But there is a woman that works there too, shes been there awhile and she has an 01' Camaro SS and a 96' WS6, she always drives one of them there so I usually dont go unless I see her car. She knows seriously everyyyyyyyything about both the LT1 and the LS1, she turned her LT1 into a pure drag car now I beleive. So its pretty damn cool that I can go in there and ask her anything and shes like oh yeah here do this, or you need that, etc and I dont have to deal with the BS. :nod:

Mine is more of a statement then a question.
I got into a slightly heated discussion with one of my long time friends and self proclaimed car guy, which had just purchased a Honda Civic SI....soon after he threw on exhaust, cold air intake.....and then come the questions on my T/A most of which were about track times.....well needless to say when I threw down my fastest track time.....he said: "well that’s not that fast.....I could easily keep up with you.......really maybe a second or two....Id be right on your ass." I said well we will just haft to see then. Best part of the story another friend that was there….which knows not a damn things about cars….but had started getting into shows like pinks and such….looks at me after he had left….with a dead serious face…”wouldn’t most people call that an ass whipping.”

Nasty cars attract the wierdest people I swear!! I remember one time a few of us local racers were on the way to one of the tracks we run at when we made a fuel stop about half way there. My buddy had his 70 Chevelle on an open trailer, and this long haired hippy dude and his hot ass daughter walk up to us. He throws out that classic poser line, "I used to have one just like this." Well long story short, his didn't have a 480" big block, didn't run 10.60's, wasn't the same color, had different options, and I don't think was even the same year!!! But of course it was "just like" my buddy's car!! Here's the kicker of this story, the guy's daugther, about 20 years old I guess, was a national quick draw pistol shooter!!! Oh and did I mention she was HOT!! The best part is she shot a 45 magnum!! Dirty Harry shit!! She gave us a bunch of professionally done pics she had of herself, and was really cool about the whole encounter. Like I said, cars attract the damndest people!! Never would have happened if we wouldn't have had race cars with us. I can only immagine how wound up that dude would have got if he would have seen our super pro altered that was in the enclosed trailer!!! Wierd

I quickly told him it was not worth the gas because it would be a slaughter. His girl chimed in telling my he could catch me in the turns, I laughed and told her making it a road course would be like throwing salt on a very large wound.

Guy "so you cut them off?"

Guy "Yeah I could tell, kept wanting to die on me. See the cats regulate the fuel. Thats why its hard to take off"
Owner "it has a cam and a Tex clutch"
Guy "uh huh"
Owner "i had a guy come down from out of state to tune the computer"
Guy "uh huh"
Owner "you know, with HPTuners?
Guy "yeah, well I knew a guy with a mustang that took his cats off once. He just ran straight pipes. I told him not to. Well after about 6 months he burnt the valves in that motor. Thats why you cant cut them off. Your valves burn up."
Owner "uh huh"
Guy "Yeah you gotta go to a speed shop to get some good cats to put on there. They run about $900 bucks or so for the whole set-up"
Owner "ok, thanks :thumb:"

wife calle dme today on her way home from work...... there is a guy at her job that has a pretty nice LS1 Z with an SS hood/spoiler and factory GFX.

she was telling me how much the guy is basically in love with my car. everything from the sound to the hood, to the wheels.... etc etc etc.... she said he just kept going on about the car. apparently to him and his friends my car is some sort of local legend that i have no clue about. they have seen it at car shows, and the track . i think i have a stalker......

anywho, somehow they got onto the conversation of my next motor and she had mentioned ill be swapping it out. (mind you my wife has no clue about cars, but knows my plans) she said he asked if i was putting in a 600 ci block with a blower and nitrous? lol now, i know my wife doesnt know a lot. but she knows enough to chuckle at him and say no. its a 408 ci and he will be spraying a Direct port 250 wet shot.......

she said his he asked why i wanted to go slower? (keep in mind, im running 10.60's on a 100 shot.) she said she sorta just laughed and the conversation went numb.....
