    Hey, they put your power steering reservoir cap on upside down!

    Just kidding man- that sounds wicked cool. I can only imagine what it sounds like in person, as opposed to a recording played through PC speakers. It's gotta thump pretty good.
    Rest in Peace, J.D. (aka Dirt_Cheap_Fleetwood)

    That is so awesome!! Gratz!

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I highly doubt that is going to pass the sniffer here in CA. I was strongly considering a 408 for a while, but based on my discussions with Andy/Charlie at A&A, it would be very hard to get 500+ rwhp out of a 408 and still have it be smog legal in CA.

    I guess, at the end of the day, what do you plan to do in order to get around that challenge? I honestly would love to know.

    Who did your tuning/dynoing?

    Damn that car sounds sweet though...

    N/A, 500+ rwhp, exactly what I want as well!!

    Get him from a roll, your rear-end (your car, not your's) will thank you.
    ... and while you're at it, take an M5 to school .

    A stock E55 or M5 will have no hope. As a matter of fact, it won't even be close, all other things equal.
