If I had a million points and a Dodge/Chrysler SRT8, I'd personally use them to reimburse me for when I drop a blower in on that burbling V8!

LOL so funny you mention that. My SRT8 already has the dull blown treatment. It's boated and built. Pushes around 500 to all 4 wheels as stayed by the 4wd Mustang Dyno.

So can't use my points for that.

500 at the crank, or at the wheels? Regardless, that's impressive! Would be good fun to run against my 2008 Vette Z06 with 505hp at the crank (excluding intake and exhaust mods that I've done).

Anyway, sorry everyone else for the tangent. ;)

At the wheels baby! :)

At the crank it's something crazy fierce. Already have an upgraded tranny built to handle over 1000. Maybe one day I'll cheat and spray NOS

You used "fierce," "tranny" and "spray" all in one sentence. Now THAT'S skill, fellow gearhead.

High-five! Thanks to the Amex platinum's automatic enrollment in the upgraded services of Avis, Hertz and National, I recently rented an Elantra but was bumped to the 2012 Challenger R/T whilst vacationing in Kona, HI. The thing is pretty quick! I was hoping for a bigger exhaust note, however. Slurped up gas like a mofo, too.

2013 Ford Explorer Sport here. Never in my life would i have ever imagined that I would see a 3 row, 5500lbs pound truck haul a55 like this thing does while being super smooth on the road and costing under 50k fully loaded. 0-60 in about 6 seconds. and that's with cheap tires. Looks like the Germans finally have a fight on their hands :)
