According to this ebay ad:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/2004-CTS-V-ZO6-package-505-HP-Beautiful-Car_W0QQitemZ290138210291QQihZ019QQcategoryZ43903QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem


The car came stock 405 HP and standard CST-V options. I have had a lot of work done to the car over two years bringing the total HP to 505. There is also a ZO6 corvette package on the car. There are two one chamber flowmaster mufflers in the exhaust with two 3 1/2 inch black chrome tips. A K&N cold air intake system was installed with the tornato HP/fuel saver. Computer remapping was done. I put brand new tires on yesterday.
I'm glad I didnt waste my money on a maggie, now that I know that the secret is the "tornato" hp/fuel saver!

Damn ! ! My car only came with 400 from the factory. Based on that Ebay ad, I'm not gonna' install the maggie......just do that "re-map" thingy.

Problem is.....some naive person will see that ad and believe EVERYTHING! 'Cause they "want" to. I hate when people do that. Thanks for the post V-Ape. BTW, he wants WAY too much for that particular vehicle.

Looks like no bids on this car

ebay offers $20,000 fraud protection. Could you buy the car for say $34K, run a dyno to prove advertising fraud then collect $20K from ebay? This car is definitely worth $14K net.

LOL---please keep us apprised of his reply Barry
to my surprise, here is the response...it makes sense now...btw, should i call him out and have him get the dyno done? i feel like what's his face on punked. at the end i should give him the link to this chain and tell him he got forum'd.

Response from DAN10000_3:
The DVD player is in the nav system and uses the main monitor. I had all the work done buy the Cadi dealer except the intake, I put that on myself. Intake+pulleys+computer upgrade+exhaust+the tornadoaddapter =a little 100HP expected gain but I have not had dyno done. I will provide a dyno check if you need. The warranty just ended at 50,000 miles but I will extend it for the buyer at no cost. Thank you for looking.

:histeric:Tornadoadapter...wow...

Yeah, I'd LOVE to see his dyno run. I seriously doubt he even sees 400 rwhp (say, ~60-70 gain), to say nothing about a 100 rwhp gain.

If he get's ~430 rwhp with those upgrades, I think over 1/2 the members on this forum would immediately purchase a "tornadoadapter." :thumbsup:

Anyone wanna do a group buy on tornados? Hahahah.

Thats very nice of him to offer an extended warranty for FREE. Well not really free considering what he's asking for the car.
