    Pontiac did everything "big." The interiors look like something from a Little Tikes factory. from the stereo buttons, to the shifter, to the huge ribbing on the seats.

    I'll have to post a 0-120 video of this thing when it's got some decent tires, looking at some MT radials on welds for the back. I really like the cts v it's just got some giant doors lol. I'd be opening them into cars and stuff all the time. 1965 mustang or 1968 camaro are my picks.. Hemi cars are really awesome too but man.. Good luck finding one at an affordable price I was pretty amazed at the numbers this thing put down on the stock heads/intake and pnp stock TB. Pretty different to drive, it's got a hydraulic roller cam for a nasty top end(2100-6800rpm power band) but the .6xx lift makes it pretty hard to take off smooth, gotta rev to about 2k or it's bouncing all over lol. Thats why I had to rev it in the video just to keep from killing it. The camaro is nice for a daily tho. It has a lid, tuner, exhaust and put numbers in sig to the ground corrected. Kind of wishing it was an auto now, but 6 speed is fun for cruisingat night. Stalled cammed LS1 on slicks with 3.42 or 373 gear is damn hard to beat under 10 grand in a 1/4, only cars that usually pull this off is a budget turbo car that's tuned good or a fox body with a lot of work. I will own another wrx or sti before my time is up

    Very nice, we built a 71' chevelle ss coupe with a built 454 and it sounded just as good in a different way. It made 490whp and 610wtq on the same dyno the ws6 was on. Full interior car with stock suspension and skinny/fat wheels. Never ran it at the track before it sold but I'm sure it was at least mid 11 capable in good track conditions and weather. No videos of it tho Me and a buddy are about to start a new project tho since my dad and me are satisfied with the ws6. New project will be a 47' chevy with a 305 sbc, turbo 400 so we have OD and rear end is to be decided.. He wants a ford 8.8 or 9" for cost efficiency.. I want a 12 bolt. I also considered an srt4 neon that already had a gt35r and goodies, but guy wouldn't go low enough in price. Shame cause I really have a weird attraction to those little cars, I think the platform is what sells me.

    Still out handles and brakes an 01 cobra(it's competition) pretty easily, not to mention outruns it down the strip. It's no miata or mini Cooper tho lol, not the best car if you like auto x. They weren't even attempting to make it handle around turns as much as run good 1/4 miles from the factory, which they accomplished for it's price range. They just have a lot of body roll on stock suspension, but I love it for cruising on the highway and local roads.
