hell no

I've spent alot of time and money making that GTO one of the fastest street cars in my area

it's still fairly efficient for what it is

6.0L LS2 V8
Cammed, Ported Intake, CAI, Custom Tune, Long Tube Headers (1-7/8" Primary/3" collectors) with High flow Cats, full Cat Back Exhaust
and a little 100 shot (WET) of Nitrous

stock the car put down about 345 RWHP/TQ
now she's at about 425 RWHP / 440 RWTQ (Naturally Asperated) and still gets 23-24mpg highway
and 512 RWHP / 620 RWTQ on the bottle (running 11.619 @ 121mph in a 4200lb car)
2005 GTO 6.0 V8 (600hp)

1991 Geo Metro 1.0 3/5 base

2010 Prius II (replaced 2001 Tahoe 5.3 V8 April 2014)

1994 F-350 7.3 TurboDiesel (Rollin' Coal)
