Not today, but last 4 days the SHO was a workhorse, but ran like a thoroughbred the entire time.

Left Tacoma Sat morning to Whitefish Montana ~9hrs.  Sun/Mon touring all over Flathead Valley MT easy 8hrs driving each day.  Tues drive back to Tacoma probably 10hrs due to running right into crap Seattle area traffic as got near home.  I did not track total miles, 550mi one way between the two, plus the MT driving.  just did rough google mapping and was in excess of 1500mi for the weekend.

Cool thing about MT, outside of towns, the roads are all pretty much 70mph.  Sho just ate that stuff up and with the 275's she held corners like a rollercoaster.

E30 tune if you have E85 etc around.

How do the Ecoboost motors like the corn juice?  I've never owned a car that used it but it's fairly common around and easy to get.

It pulls like a freight train compared to 93 tunes. IF you have good fuel to feed the tune.

I run E30 all the time now. Its just too easy.
