Ive been off site a while with life and there are tons of new faces, not many old guys though. Did we all disappear?

I think quite a few have sold their vette and just like to spend time waxing their daily driver.

Not sure that I'm an old timer yet? But just don't get on as much anymore.. browse occasionally, though I prefer to use my hands in other ways.

We dialed in the AFR on 20psi boost with the twin 7675s, but never got HP numbers due to dyno issues that day. Since then I've moved twice and about to start playing again this fall.

No the c5 with what it had will blow this one;s door off with no problem at all. The c5 was the only cat I have had that would make me pucker my azz when I got into it all the way. But then to the way the cars azz end would go from side to side & if the road had much of a bad dip r role in it, it got really back being a conv car & no cage also in it. C5 just my daily driver now all back to stock.. Robert

Robert, how does it feel to be driving the same car with it being put back to stock? I don't think I could tolerate it. When I drive anything with less than 800rw, it feels broken and slow.
