yeah, I call BS on the "too much power" as a blanket statement. I don't think there's such a thing- it's all about management. If you're "afraid" then that's another thing.

That's the first I've seen a rad used as a chin spoiler.

Depends on the engine.. In 98, Chevy only claimed 305hp for the Z28, and that's at the crank.. So 280 might be about right for a stock engine.

Yes, too much power is relative. In Tim's case, he has too much power for the amount of tire hes running. I would love to see him mount my 275s and see what it will do, but he is not willing to massage his fenders. He likes the sleeper look too much.

I guess I am afraid.
