Me though I like the atmosphere and the smell of burnt rubber.
ROFL, if I get used to the power, i just drive Kendra'* car for a day

Yup, that'd be it for me. Ranks right up there with stomping a lightly modded 1994 T-Bird SC and a 1992 5.7 TA GTA (although it was only because of my better RT -but with a PCM I'd truly own).

Oh come on Todd, you know your not done modding yet, don't tell me just a LSD and that'* it. Don't deny it, that'* not who you are, If I lived that close to Intense I'd be doing the same thing, would of had the cam already.

LOL, that'* what I was thinking too....saving for the tranny part. once that is taken car of, I will get a cam for sure, while the blower'* off might as well slap an Intercooler in there and a nice shinny ported blower. untill then.. I'm saving for a tranny and a winter beater first, just hope the tranny last till next year. Not real worried about it...yet....
But so anyways after YOUR tranny goes, which I want to place bets on. btw. What else you got up your sleeve?

Oh and tell more about the Northstar TB. I take it a kit is in development.

Here is the thead on the throttle bodies

As for the tranny its not acting up at all. Only problem I thin I'm going to have with it is if it snap the input shaft on a hard 1-2 shift. The LSD and LW TC should help prolong it a bunch.
