Ok guys I bought a ragged supercoupe about a 3 weeks ago. Did tons of upkeep on her [my post supercoupe bucks at boost] new ,hg,fuel pump, fuel filter, cam sensor, I gutted cats and I cut open the muffler in the middle of the car open gutted out the tubes and re welded the muffler. Also found a screamin demon coil at a junkyard on a supercoupe with some live wires all for 25$ hehe. I removed the air intake silencer, other than that it's automatic completely stock and has dry rotted tires lol. My buddies 1996 formula is also auto it has a lt1 350 and we cut off his rotten muffler to, he also has ls1 style cold air with a nice functional ram air hood.

You are better off removing the resonator all together. Worst part of the stock exhaust.port the stock manifold collector's. Get a double ic with a fan. It should be a close race. Make sure your belts and tensioners are in good shaoe. Ie no belt slip

Guy at work just picked up an 06 pontiac gxp. Pretty sure I should not be putting the sc up against it in stock form but would it even be close in a stop light to stop light race?

Ooops, I meant to start a new thread not reply to this one. Anyway any guesses
