07gtS197 A few weeks ago I got a 17 gt pp with 3.73s and an m6 and it feels slower than my 07 gt but holy hell its a lot faster. Now I have no way of proving that but just from driving them back to back the 17 is much quicker. My 07 is loud and my 17 is quiet, so I also vote for the placebo effect.

What is co sidered much faster? You taking it to the track? What are the trap speeds? Or are you just doing street pulls

200 lbs isnt that much of a difference, .2 seconds in the quarter at best.


My money is on the placibo affect from the louder exhaust.
