The same way I know every Seal I've met.

They tell me, usually by the second sentence. They say, "Hi, my name's Joe. I'm an ex Navy Seal".

I've met at least a hundred of them.

Are you sure of the size? 295/30/19 is undersized for a stock '08. What size front tire? A mismatch between front and rear sizes can cause A/H or T/C problems that will be magnified by speed.

USPS is a joke. A pasture for "retired" federal workers. They put in their 20 someplace else and then goof off at the PO for another 20.

You'll get very close to the same HP out of any header brand. Buy for availability and price.

New aftermarket might not be a bargain, do you know the battery life expected?

Base

Found a great deal on a real base, $69.99 for a set of three from Dicks Sporting Goods. No mention of a GS or Z06 though. :D

It's for accurate close range shooting.

Typical Super Bowl 1/2 time show.

You're right, I reversed the HP and TQ terms. TQ falls, HP increases after the crossover 5250RPM.

Still hold that the peak stock HP is not enough to support higher speeds with ANY gear changes....

Check with whatever Auto Chain store you have in your area (PEP boys, etc). You'll get much better prices and if/when Warranty replacement happens they're open nights and weekends unlike a Dealer.
