Yes the 430hp engine. Easy win but we were at 6000ft elevation so he was making about 20% less power then if he was at sea level.

Unless you are running at least some some e85 and on a tune or fbo, you may get lit up.

I owned a '13 GC 3.8 manual for a couple of years. Really enjoyed the car and liked the looks. For ~350hp, it always seemed a little anemic due to the low torque (280ish iirc).

Put it in 4wd, take traction control off and hang on. 0-50ish, about as fast as most on the street. Aerodynamics start to take a toll after 60 but it is a very fun truck to drive!
