Not to mention the car only has 36,000 miles and when my loan is payed off i'm trading it in for a new one anyway, think i'll switch back to a v8 depending on how much hp the v6 has in 5 years. Drove a 5.0 before this but i really do like the v6 and the saved money from insurance and gas, main thing i miss is the exhaust rumble that obviously you can't replicate. If it didn't go through winters i would supercharge it but i highly doubt superchargers are good for winter, haha
actually, centrifugal SC units have no effect on winter driving. They really don't do much until 3000 RPMs. If you're diving at 3,000 RPMs in winter weather, you're just thinning the herd, anyway.

Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness,his upper rooms by injustice,making his countrymen work for nothing...Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar?Did not your father have food and drink?He did what was right and just,so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion. Jer 22:13, 15-17
