    I\'m officially scared of it....

    Shawn Spickler's awesome K5 is in our shop right now, he's getting bumper put on it. When he handed the keys over to Tim, he said to have fun with it. That K5 is FRIGHTENING! It's not natural to have that much HP in any vehicle. I'm scared of it.....it growls! Shawn, I WANT THAT BLAZER!/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    I'll post before and after later. It's not what his truck looks like. It's what the 500HP FEELS LIKE. HOLY SH*T!

    I know what you mean! My friends blazer has 550hp and 625lb of torque. It is really something when you hammer it from a
    dead stop. His rumbles threw a 3" flowmaster exhaust system.
    If you pedal the throttle once it will pack the front tires!
    Just didn't feel right going back to my 300hp 350 after driving that for awhile. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    I rode with Shawn in the Potent Rodent at BB02. When he punches the go pedal, time and space bend... /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif 496 cubic inches, port fuel injection, Edlebrock heads, Doug Thorley headers, etc., etc. make it a VERY fun ride! /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif I'm just glad that I don't have to feed it. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    Were you in the brown diesel pickup? I remember draggin' ya back out of the boonies. I was riding with Shawn that day. Not only does he have a GREAT Blazer, he's also one of the nicest people you'll ever meet! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Yep. it looks a little different now (better). I was talking to him yesterday and made him promise I can have his Trans Am for the weekend! It's got more oomph than the K5---yikes! /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Re: I\'m officially scared of it....

    Any new pics of the rig? I've been following it's buildup on Off-Road.com for quite a few years now and Shawn has seemed to fall off the planet so I haven't seen any new pics since Moab.

    Somebody needs to post a wave file of that thing. Sounded like a symphony of angry little demons when he rev'ed it at the gas station. /forums/images/graemlins/pimp1.gif
