Re: 2013 5.7L V8 GC TrailHawk and my Dyno run.
Now to follow up, of course you feel that everything you posted was “100% the absolute truth” I am sure of that since you had nothing constructive to add to my posts other than quoting the web sites that I also visited when I was doing my research. Your statement from the Volant “engineer” does fit into your own suggestion of forum rules violation. Since I am sure the anonymous Volant “engineer” was not informed that you were going to quote them. So now I can add that it is in my personal belief that you are not only a coward, a liar, but also a hypocrite. Again, this is simply my opinion.
Since you feel that I am “the acid that eats away at an otherwise pleasant forum experience”, does this put you in a higher social status than me? Perhaps since you continually provoked and engaged in the negative connotation of your tone with in your replies; you sir are jealous that I was able to produce factual information. This factual information led to my opinion that a $1,500 “performance exhaust” is not worth the money for the simple fact of looks or noise. Other “performance exhaust” that claim a 97% more air flow (regardless of header and cat combination) will also claim more than a 4-6% power increase. However; in defense of Corsa and your “facts”, drive train does rob power as well as the thinner air of Colorado. With that said, how does one then rationalize the power gains from a simple $200 Volant intake system?
