Re: lookin at a car (SlientG60)

yeah should get damn good mileage with no blower
probably even run cheap gas on it too if the drive is mostly flatlands.
i wouldn't expect 80mph str8 up to colorado, maybe downhill or flat plains lol.
you got about 80hp (not whp) without the blower iirc.

you can probably get to 100mph, but it will take a while, heheh.

It'll get to 100, but it's gonna take most of I-5 to get you there, lol.
Oh yeah, and buy the cheapest piss-gas you can find. Never pings.

i have been driveing with my charger bypassed now for too long you can get up to speed but i twell take you longer (blower was gone when i got it so umm yea) just check the oil level every so often becuase the banjo lines like to leak when they are capped off but part of my coomute is going over about 1.5 mile hill every day each way and i can cruise at 80
