WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING.

What amazed me most about the Vigilante is that fact that I took 6/10 of a second off my ET in the ¼ mile. Not only that but it’s my daily driven LT1 and its still a pleasure to drive on the street. Its fun to drive and it really squeals the tires.

We just continue to WOW them! We set the H/SA record in Boise running a 10.89 sec. at 120.11 MPH. Guess ti goes without saying that I was also the #1 qualifier. Suppose it also goes without saying that everyone who sees the car wants to know what the combination is. We tell anyone who asks about the GREATEST converter ever!Again, thank you so much for helping make all of this possible. We know it would not have happened without YOUR converter!
