Joe's 350 WHP Supercharged 2008 GT:

------STREET ROCKET-----------

better be packing upwards of 400+ at the wheels and have your a-game on command if you want the win against me....

this shit is raked out, even after bringing the front end up at least an inch.

here are a few videos:
back out from garage to pull away down the street. good for hearing the motor at idle, low power, and then taking off w/ a little throttle....

here is rev or two after a warm up drive. can't go into boost w/out 'load' on the least I can't.

night time back-out and pull away - a little more power then in the first video, but no more then 1/3 throttle. listen for the cut-off when I let off the gas and you can just hear the air "umph" through engine as it get's it's last big breath. i always loved that. inside you can just feel the power and then the 'let out' as you come off the gas. it's pretty sick.

the redline hood props are another one of my favorite mods - thanks to Dax for the suggestion. they make a big difference, to me that OEM stand is just so ugly now.

M-1 abrams shift know w/ short shifter & aluminum shifter base bushings. maybe my favorite mod of them all.

the flux capacitor - 4000 watts, 2 X 12" Diamond D6 Subs, hits pretty goddamn hard:
