My speedo reads 3-4mph fast at 100 compared to a GPS speedo phone app. But the intravee speed output suggests near 10% below the speedo reading!

Hi mate can you hear the charger when you give it full throttle? I'm charging mine next year but will be disappointing if there is no whine.ive read a few where they say it's not loud

You definitely wonít be disappointed. Once you start that engine you will notice
Some serious business going on under that bonnet. Vortech V3 due to helical gear design is not that loud as straight cut gears. It doesnít whine like dodge demons charger. Itís more like whistling when cruising. Canít really hear it inside the cabin. However from outside itís whole different story. Itís quite loud. Lots of whistling and blowing...

Drivability is very much like stock. Maybe even better. Very smooth power delivery. When driving slow around town itís around 17 mpg. My average across the Europe was 18mpg with my heavy foot, so itís not bad overall.

Honestly I donít know. 0-60 is very much traction(condition) dependent.

Thats not bad then really sounds like it drives smoother at slow speeds that my airbox set up with similar mpg as a stock car them. Think i get between 15-20 round town and about 27-30 ish taking it steady on a run my computer says im averaging 24 at the mo
