This bad boy was in service the other day, the plate reads MR BUD & the bracket is Budweiser King Of Beers. As for the car itself it was lowered 1" in the front, black wheels (Looked like Foose), Volant intake , custom chip, full stainless exhaust (7lbs I was told), etc. For a grand total of around 625 ponies. (All according to the service advisor)

I'd guesstimate 380-400hp at the wheels with those mods. Service advisors are so gullible....

I didn't even get the "nemesis" remark until I looked at your name. Funny.

It's still a V, stock is 400hp on the LS2 & this was a '06. What would that make it then? Just curious.

400 is stock at the crank rather than the wheels. I would guess his mods would make far < 50 hp extra in total.

maybe 50 at best.....close to 365 at the wheels...

Budweiser > Pabst

Therefore I believe the guy. 625 ponies sounds about right for a CAI, exhaust and............a chip?

Chip? Frito Lay or Herrs?

Gobels and Altes! God's gift to beers. When I was a 16 years old it was $7.99 for a 24pack in Michigan. Never a shortage of willing buyers to keep us punks lit. :)

As for the HP claim - :cookoo:

No takebacks. I am a huge fan of bud. Been drinking it since I was 17. I even have the label memorized to this day.

"This is the famous Budweiser beer. We know of no beer produced by any other brewery which costs so much to brew and age. Our exclusive beechwood aging poduces a taste, a smoothness and a drinkability you will find in no other beer at any price".

There, take that Pabstboy :thepan:

Schlitz, and my all time favorite ...I can still hear the guys singing "Ah ha, we're sitting pretty, altogether in Schaeffer City." Funny thing now, there is a microbrew Brooklyn Beer now that is way overpriced that is probably the old Schaeffer or Reingold recipe.

I want that 250 HP chip! Give up the supplier or we'll make you drink Schlitz.

I read all the posts, and there was no mention of Strohs. :helpless: But, gimme a micro-brewed dark lager any day. :alchi:

As for 625 hp, somebody's not drinkin', they're smokin'. :bonkers:

I encourage people to drink Bud. A-B invests a lot of money into the community and built an annex at my university.

I, however, refuse to drink it unless the only other options are Sam Adams and Heineken. :)

Now, I'm not much of a drinker and have tried a beer or two. What beer would you guys recommend me to drink?

Beer is an aquired taste, you'll have to find what you like.

Big Rock (Western Canada), Sleemans (Central Canada) or Alexander Keith India Pale Ale. Good Canadian beer.

Oh man, I can't believe you just brought up Wiedemann's!!!!!!!! My old man used to drink that swill all the time when I was a kid. That just made my day! I was convinced that NO ONE else on the planet drank that stuff.

Another fine brew: Golden Anniversary

Back in the day, if you were man enough

A shot of Imperial followed by Iron City chaser

It would grow hair where you had none and take it off if you had some

Unless you were from the Mistake on the Lake - then you'd just choke

The conversion from ponies to horsepower is .63.
I used to drink the good stuff (Strohs, Labatt Blue, ect.) in high school. Once I was a poor college student quantity became more important than quality and those of you listing the cheap drinks from their day forgot my poison of choice. Red, White and Blue Beer. We used to be able to get a quart for $.49. Blech!!!

HA! Red, White and Blue, great call. But since when has Strohs been considered 'good stuff'? :)

I remember buying Fallstaff on special for $1.25 a six pack.

Gawd it was awful. Chewing and swallowing the steel cans would have been preferable to drinking their contents.
