    Wow...just wow. I don't think that guy was serious though. There is no way someone is that fucking stupid. But then again, I guess you never know.

    Reminds me of a guy I worked with that insisted a turbo sucks the air out of the engine.

    C3/C4 vettes were plagued with being at the end of the Muscle car era. Stringent emissions reduced the power they could make. Luckily Chevy learned how to engineer an engine and now we have stock 11 second vettes making 24 mpg city. :)

    Of the big three in America, Chevy built the only V8 (or V10) 'supercar' that doesn't have a gas guzzler tax on it like the Viper and 03-04 Cobra/S197 GT500 do.

    they also have this nifty lockout to that forces you to skip gears at low rpms and speeds to achieve that mpg.

    For some reason I think I have seen this somewhere else before.

    The older WS6 6-speed Trans-Ams and Camaros had that feature too. 1st to 3rd FTL.

    It can be disabled. IIRC you can still use 2nd gear but if you try to rev out 1st it won't let you into 2nd. For the people saying the 15.2 is slow what car out of the early 80s was fast?

    Are you sure you're not thinking of the 4+3 shifting manuals ? 4 gears with 2,3, and 4 having a Laycock de Normanville type of overdrive ?
