had an 02SS, ordered unit, SLP 1379, 345 hp, SLP dual dual cat back, Black M6, Hurst shifter, K&N, FRAM (cut up bottom airbox), MTI Lid, Z06 Clutch. No Hypertech but 160 degree stat, stock gear, and that car ran consistent 13.0's on street tires, so don't know what that SS's problem was.
could have been hypertech going backwards, as they do sometimes, he could've been a poor driver. would've thought it would been a bit closer of a race. Mabye his Ellis Juan was tired.
My SS was a nice car, no problems, and functional scoop
but no comparison in quality to the ppppppp, uh, Holden
