how reliable is the V at the 600hp range? Im looking to mod my 2010 but I have to be able to drive it anywhere if I wanted to. This isnt my DD but if I wanted to take a trip I want to be able to.

Mine is a 2011. Had 1,200 on the clock when wait4me did my mods. Now at 10k+ with no problems DD. Also took four 700mile trips averaging 22mpg for the trips total.

Too soon to tell as well but my wait4me modded 655 whp sae corrected 620 something uncorrected has been solid as a rock.
Also I did drive Jesse's 700whp LSX detuned white monster for a week and it was flawless.
From what I've seen and been told these motors are pretty solid and pretty straight forward compared to
euro alternatives.

22mpg!? You have eggshells on the pedal? I'd be dancing if I got 15. Cant be using those 600 ponies very often...:hmm:

My car was modded the first week I owned it and while I'm not at 600 rwhp I'm close at 578 SAE (on a local Dynojet). Over 60,000 miles and 70+ track passes.....so far so good.

I took it from Chicago to FL (all the way out to key West) last year and occasionally make the run from Chicago to NJ to see the family. No issues. Fill it with 93 and go. If done right, you shouldn't have any issues.

You are right, for the trips I was trying my best to see what mileage I could squeeze out of her, 22mpg was the average of the four 700mile trips. Around town average is 12 lol.
I'm sure you have seen this, but I do beat on it. http://youtu.be/YMPGymWMzKY My other vids are at Bushidopupil on Youtube.

Also for ptevo03 mine is an auto.

Well so far it's been an EXPERIENCE for me, wouldn't recommend it at the moment, if your close to get a proper tune then I'D SAY GO FOR IT, STAY AWAY FROM THE MAIL ORDER STUFF. Read everything you can and make decisions based on that...

Ahhhh...I've felt ur pain. Ive learned to buy somebody elses hard earned lessons. I have to admit that these V's are ripe to mod, but frankly amazed that they come with most everything I modded into my truck over the past few yrs from 6 piston brakes to 6.2l motor, new blower, reliable d-train and tons of ponies - all with factory tested support and warranty! They could prob be lighter and thats prob the direction I might go along with some handling improvements...

Here I am on Youtube getting smoked by a turbo IROC-Z running about a second slower than me because of the same issue. It can happen to all of us. lol

I drove Jesse's 700 rwhp auto and it was fine. This car was de-tuned for the prior owner from 770 rwhp and I don't think anything special was done to the tranny.
This car has the LSX engine.
