Also, with a stopwatch, I can average a 7-ish second 0-60 time (powerbraking) whereas the stock numbers for the Auto V6 is around 8 seconds (if i'm not mistaken)

Also, depending on the road surface, after I installed my upgrades, sometimes I can manage to squeak the drive tire on the 1-2 shift.

I don't know, lol... there could be a chance that a previoius owner did something to it that I don't know about... but the history report said that she was used as a company car in Los Angeles so I doubt it... I'll see if I can get a video of my speedo posted...idk what else I could do to prove it...
Did you disconnect the computer when you changed the plugs?


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
