You always get used to it. I never thought you could get used to almost 700rwtq from an LS2....but I did, and fast, and now am adding water/meth and nitrous, along with E85 and more boost

I think overall I'm used to it. But once in awhile, like today when I passed a truck in 3rd, it catches me by surprise.

completely used 2 it now, want more power forsure, but it does catch me by surprise sometimes. The thing about the 335 in general is that its a very smooth car and power comes on very progressive so sometimes u may not notice how fast u are climbing the speedometer.

Once you get into the "upgrade" phase, no matter if it's cars or watches; you always get used to what you have and desire the next, best thing and soon enter the "collector phase" and that always gets expensive. The more you upgrade, the faster you get used to what you have.

Yes - This is normal. Almost like anything in life actually.

The only way to get the feeling back again is to take it away, realize what you had, then reapply it

I agree, you get used to it really fast on any car... but if you just watch the speedo climb it definitely helps

It's like Heroin or Crack. You get used to it, and you need more.
