My son and I were finally able to drive 2.5 hours to the dealership to pick it up last night. I have to say when I fired it up my 17 year old gearhead son's jaw dropped and I read his lips say "Holy Crap!!" (since I couldn't actually HEAR what he was saying...).

Good times!

Great choice. You would have regretted settling and buying an A4. Looks like a very nice Z06. It must be pretty loud with the LG long tubes and SLP Loud Mouths.

Welcome
Wasn't sure they were LGs until you made that comment. But yes, the sound definitely turns heads. I'm waiting for the local LEOs to comment...

Remember:
The High Performance Summer tires on theses cars do NOT like cold weather.
Your modded engine (looks like they paired the big cam with headers, which is good) can pick up over a hundred horsepower in a 500rpm step (coming on the cam). SOooo a little wheelspin, can put the rpm up 500rpm and you have BIG wheelspin....into the ditch.
The software algorithm that controls wheelspin is VERY lax in 1st gear!!!
