The extra couple cents is worth it to me. I don't really care if my car were to start burning a bit of oil, I just do it for the fun of it anyway.

"It's part of my budget. Wife keeps asking me what WOT means in our budget planner."

- haha that is awesome. tell her its a wise investment.


"Its most gratifying to employ WOT with a passenger in the DeVille who's unfamiliar with the Northstar feeling. "

- yes it is, but sometimes they think you are gonna get them killed.

Correction.. with me they ALWAYS think they're gonna get killed, especially with the sound of aftermarket exhaust. Ehh.. they learn after the first time though, what's even better is the look on the drivers face next to you when the Northstar starts roaring. :lildevil:

Just do it on a fair straight away. I took off around a slight corner wanting to put an old 5.0 with flowmasters in its place. Had to get it under control. Probably looked like an idiot. I got it straight and showed the 5.0 my back side.

Mine torque steers so damn bad I think Im going to get killed, tis why I never did it again. Why am I the only one?
Just FYI, I found that better quality tires seem to have a lot less torque steer (not saying you don't have quality tires). Just a thought.

Your not! I almost shit myself twice cause of this.. but it never happens as bad if i'm going like 35 and then floor it. Its at its wo.rst when its from a dead stop. I dont think tires have much to do with it, i'm running Falken Azenis ST115's 245/40/18 which are pretty sticky.

Well for mine it seems ok only if you are doing 55mph or so then drop the peddle to the ground. It doesnt seem to downshift allthe way that way. Once the black smoke settles it is almost as powerful as my 96 LT1 caprice was.:)

I'm pretty sure that I've done this before but let me ask...

By WOT, you guys mean flooring it which lets the car haul major ass past people, right? If the answer is yes, then I'm guilty of it
. By the way, how often should it be done?
