I'm having a hard time believing that you are beating S197 GTs unless you have a supercharger on your car.

That "supercharger" wine you are talking about is just your vacuum lines making that noise, mine does the same thing.

Same thing is happening with mine, I have an 05 v6 that is modded, but I can't figure out how. It's had 3 previous owners, I talked to 2 of them, nothing so far. My friend has an 07 v6, mines much louder and has quicker response and acceleration, I haven't dynod yet or 0-60. It's winter, come summer time I'm taking it to a track.

Umm. Just so we're clear. You aren't planning on dynoing this to see whether or not your car is supercharged right?

my sixxer whines in third gear mostly to. i thought our V6's were supposed to be able to do it in 5.2 seconds? anyways, im not trying to sound like a dick, but do you know what a supercharger looks like?why not just pop the hood and take a look? and as stated, the only way you should be able to beat a GT is if the driver sucks, the only thing we have over the GT is we are lighter.
