    Its been said that the engine has another 10% in it for tuning.

    Between tune, exhaust and tints..thats all I will do.

    Chris,
    You know we luv ya, just can't get comfy with that Taxicab you drive-JFWY!!!!

    Back on topic, why mod it, except for exhaust and tune which may get you to 600bhp. It is the total package, buy a V1 and go 440ci with TTs if you want mad power. Of course you can always disprove everyone and figure out a way to complete a pulley swap to get you way past 600,,,

    Badcad... You're sending mixed messages..lol, you ask why mod it? But you're sig says "Life is to short not to visit Mod Hell"... you're conflicted... but I totally agree, just a nice exhaust setup would suffice

    It looks at least some of you are planning on doing some cool stuff, I am looking forward to see what you can pull out of this car.

    V2 is a much more powerful vehicle than the V1, but you are probably right, as if I got the V2 it would not stay stock. I do think the motor and SC on the V2 are sufficient, no need to mess with either, except for the pulley swap temptation.

    It will be interesting to see what authorized stuff GM offers for the car that can be added and not affect it's warranty.
