I am wondering how they tuned it to run them times. It says its stock cube heads and cam. Or did they just do crazy amount of dyno hours on the car for the best tune and gut the car so it weighs barely anything.

Can i also buy the Brooklyn Bridge from you guys ????

Stock cubed means "stock cubed" which has nothing to do with heads and/or camshaft !! So, stock cubed it may be, but stock heads and camshaft...never ! ! !

Lets keep the info correct so we do NOT mislead any of our fellow GTO/LS1/LS2 owners....We all love the idea of making more power, but making up stories and leaving out important info doesnt do any of our members a favor.........If you cant tell us the truth about your combo then dont tell us anything !!!!
