Re: 550 hp

I like it - going to be sweet. I have spoken to the dealer about getting on a wait list as it will be limited in production.

Re: quick question for the wk2 srt guys running 22's.

Weight is weight and HP is horsepower, they are numbers and calculations which don't lie, and never will.

There is no way a 5150lb vehicle with 470 hp is getting 3.9 0-60 times.

In absence of real power there is always Photoshop.
