You should see the guys up here flogging the crap out of their V8s and
running 16.2s up here in Colorado.

If I was at sea level I'd probably agree with you.  I think the reverse
is true here, though.  Dollar for dollar, the SVO will go faster until
the 5.0 guy finally puts up the dollars for a power adder, and then
it's over, IF the 5.0 guy does it right.  There's a lot of 5.0 blower
cars up here only running low 14s, they obviously have problems, though.
