I dig the stance. Kinda hard to see the tires with the black wheels though. I have about 10k miles on the Nittos. I'm calling that good enough. I think the ET's probably hook a little better but I'm satisfied with Nitto.

Btw, that's one hell of a sleeper.

Vette's can't help themselves. Lol. You just ride about a car ahead of them and wait. They just can't help themselves.

No they can't I watched my friend smoke a Z06 the night he bought his 997 Turbo. Friend was ahead of me cruising at 70 or so and the Z06 flew by me at atleast 100. Before the vette could pass him he destroyed him. God that thing is fast.

I pulled one a while back by about 9 cars. 85-140. Closed circuit race track of course. Lol

The 525HP does include a 12/12 warranty, which is why I am going that route, but I wanted to know in the future if tuning/upgrading for higher boost would even be worth it.

Does the Vortech still sound like a supercharger? Also, I live in Michigan where the roads look like they have been mortared in some places.
The Vortech is actually very quiet...if you must have that sweet whine, go with a screw-type blower...
