Pontiac didn't have a leg to stand on though because Ferrari used it before them.

As an A/T driver I find it deeply appealing that TRD has not forgotten us with the car in that video. With the exception of the rear diffuser and exhaust everything looks to me like simple boltons. That said I love the deeper sound of that muffler!

You have to ask yourself, does it need more HP if it looks so fast?!
