455hp would be a nice bump in addition to the suspension changes.

We gear heads will want more of course. But a bump is a bump. With a tune I am sure it will make that kind of power with ease. They have to leave some breathing room for when other manufacturers bump their hp numbers. Plus it seems most Mustang owners can't even handle the 420hp cars. hahaha

S650 is coming in 2020. I'm sure it'll be upper 400's and hopefully go on a diet.

That I agree. I thought you were referring to yours. But yeah the new trans will probably help a ton.

That doesn't really prove anything as it's the last gen Camaro, which is heavier and has less power than the current one. Might as well post a Challenger racing a 3V lol.

I posted that because after the camaro race, is a 2015+ GT vs a 2015 Challenger SRT 392. Thats why. No idea what the hell you are talking about.

If possible I'd trade. If not you still have an awesome ride. Just get some aftermarket stuff to cover what you wont have from the 2018, and enjoy it.

Digging the orange fury color or go black my yellow one has really grown on me and if i could find a stripeless triple yellow gt350 for a decent price id be all over it too.

But yeah paxton and e85 seems most cost effective route for both most hp and least damage to the wallet.

That might be worth it to hold out. Only issue would be if the 10 speed gets weak with power adders where the current auto trans is a beast.

If you're thinking of FI, keep the current car for sure. The 6spd is proven and who knows what hurdles await the new 5.0 with direct injection.

Lol yea it's gonna get done. Car has been under a cover since November 1st.

And no worries there's always someone faster. I've gotten my ass kicked plenty of times. Other driver always gets a thumbs up from me!

Now that statement is a better way to get a race from me vs the here kitty kitty BS. As I agree no matter what somebody will always be faster, I'm all good for some fun. I think @1quick is first at laying the smack down on me though.

See you around Jeff.
