owners. After 2500 miles, I'm running 13.6 consistenly with a speed 101.7. The General better
go back to the drawing board if they consider this the Lighting Killer!!!
99.5 Red Lighting, Superchipped, K&N GenII Kit,all
in line to prove the point "the Heartbeat Stops Here".
those trucks and cars that the general has screwed you with.
See ya wouldn't want to be ya,
99.5 SVT Lighting
SS and other performance trucks being offered by manufacturers. The Lightning wasn't there for some reason. Not sure why as it is probably the most popular.
Anyway, the SS has a decent quarter-mile time
for an unblown engine, but for some reason the 0-60 time was pretty bad. I forget the times, and I don't have the magazine with me, but I'll post them later.
granted the lightning is very impressive for a truck, but any truck with a little tweeking epecially the silverado ss could easily do the same if not far better which in my oppion at 14.087 had already beaten the ford according to edmunds and other car magizines, and with a different gear selection in the rear and a little engine tweaking the chevy could come out the winner just as the camaro has been doing to the mustang for years.
actually for about $7,000 less you could just buy a mustand GT which was faster in both the 1/4 and 0-60 according to the test at edmunds or better yet just get a camaro or firebird and leave them both in the dust. ford built a heck of a cool truck but it will just be a matter of time before chevy comes out with something to put it to shame.
Ford? I cant see any Fords in this dust!
See ya, Wouldnt want to be you asdeman.
2nd You have to be able to afford the truck then spend a considerable amount of money for the supercharger and ancillary upgrades. 3rd Then you still don't have a intercooler, super heavy duty
tranny, and heavy duty brake system that is included on my Freakin Beast. 4th I would very much welcome the competition but I just heard that GM will terminate the Camero and Firbird due
to such bad sales in the year 2001. If this is true the dumbest thing they could ever do is go in
production on a sports truck but would very much
welcome the competition. I would then have to upgrade for the 2001 Lightning with a rated stock HP of 450 and 540 ft/lbs of tourque. (I like to dream just like all the GM fellow are doing now.)
BTW The F-body looks like it will be around a little longer....maybe
