This is a mileage check on my 1999 Corvette LS1 6 speed. I've done a few mods to improve power and they've also improved the mileage as well. Those mods are: Vararam CAI, LS6 intake manifold, Powerbond 25% underdrive pulley, GMPP wires and Iridium plugs, B&B shorty headers, Magnaflow x-pipe and Flowmaster cat-back system. During this test the tires were inflated to 33 front and 35 rear - the way I drive it every day. The stretch of road I use is a long, flat part of the San Mateo bridge. No special tricks or anything, just showing what the car is capable of in one uncut video.

1999 Corvette C5 vs. 2013 392 Hemi Challenger
Hey all, this was at Irwindale dragstrip. Got to have a rematch against
that same SRT8 Challenger that properly kicked my ass in the Mustang. I beat him once, but then he
came back with an impressive victory. Hard to believe a car that heavy can
move that fast.
I actually have to wear a helmet now... yes... Ive earned it LOL
Corvette: K&N CAI, GHL bullet Exhaust
392 Challenger: Exhaust, tune

Owner and IDOT Trash C5 Corvette, 2:00am, 3/18/11
I heard the screeching tires and the impact from my office, and grabbed the
Day-amn! This graduate of the Lance Briggs School of Hi-Performance Driving
had hit the retaining wall so hard, it sheared the spokes right off the rim
of one of the wheels. Steel and rubber doughnut, anyone?
Clear, dry road, gentle curve, wide, well-marked lanes, beautiful, mild
50-degree Friday morning -- how do they continue to do it? Oh, well, as
long as they do, you'll see it here first.
I'll let you be surprised with --- the REST --- of the story. Watch, enjoy,
and if you're feeling a little schadenfreude for a Vette owner with too
much money and too little common sense, you're human.
