Pulled up at Lowes and as I was going into the store, a younger guy with his son in tow, ask me what year my Camaro was?

I told him it was a 2016 and was ordered from the factory. In fact I had just gotten back where I went to pick it up.

Just didn't want to embarrass him in front of his young son.

I have a 2003 GT vert with a Magnaflow Exhasut, a tune and mostly suspension stuff. Some ricers at the local 7-11 asked me how I get that "deep sounding exhaust".

I replied:

4 more cylinders than you guys are running.
Simple as that.

They looked at me like I had one eyeball in the middle of my forehead.

even my Love knows the V8 sound is music. Any engine can sound nice, but the sound is another reason to spring for a V8 (although torque is the main reason)

I've been told the same by different people, mainly owners with a 4 cylinder. I just tell "Your point is? Still has more HP than that thing you have" haha.

My cousin's husband has a Camry always telling me (jokingly) "Let's race for pink slips" whenever I see him. I laugh at him and after awhile tell him let's do it; he always ends up saying "Nah you'll win" haha... Its still impressive the amount of HP the sixxers have, not to mention the HP we can put in them

It's got 210hp and weighs 300-400 pounds less than the Mustang despite being a sedan. It's hard to say, in my book.

Rule of thumb is 100 pounds = 10 horsepower. So all things being equal it'll realistically have 240-250 horsepower with weight being zero factor now.

My wife tells me about an hour after I traded my '12 base GT for a '14 premium GT: I hope you're not going to "Mexican" up this one by lowering it and putting loud exhaust like you did the last one. I told her first off, WE are Mexicans and second that's like the very first 2 things you do to a Mustang no matter what race you are. By far the dumbest thing I've heard about my mustang.


I've already installed the loud exhaust and I'm going to lower it next month.
