Default rented one

This weekend. Wow, for a six it moves pretty quick! I looked down and was doing 85 before I realized it! Loved the handling and response and the fact that you could feel the road. As noted, initial throttle response seems a sec or two off. I'm thinkin' about getting the pony package (for the suspension upgrades) once I get some extra $$$. All around fun driving though!

A tuner, such as the XCal2, gets rid of the throttle lag. So if you thought it was fun as is, what a tuner does for the V6 needs to be experienced to believe. The simple combo if a CAI and tuner makes it a true performance V6.

Does your K & N air filter really make any notable differences and what was the price??

The K&N Filter was like 50 bucks and I havent noticed any significant difference

But this one is supposed to last for-ever (better than the stock paper) and add maybe a mile or two per gallen
