Default Can't get my foot...

...off the firewall tonight.
Got rockers and a FWI at INTENSE, and I can't help but plant my foot at every oportunity!
It'* pretty noticeably faster than what it was the day before. I think I've made up for the taller tires and maybe a bit more.
And the whine is positively demonic.

Brian, Sounds like you've increased power output on your Park Avenue & had fun doing it. Roll with it & be safe.

Well I'll give you my thoughts as I rode in the PA about a hour or two ago. HOLY ****. That car is simply amazing. At first when I got in and left the campground, he gave it some gas, I didn't think it was that fast at all but when I glanced over at his speedo, we were going over 80-90 mph. Wow!!!!!! The PA does it so quietly and smoothly, it'* a TRUE Sleeper. I want one like it, maybe in pearl white or black.

Brian your car is AWESOME and the real reason why I ddn't accept your offer of letting me drive it is because I knew if I just touched the steering wheel and the gas pedal, I'll want it, I would be seduced to the soothing feel of the boost. Keep that car Brian, and I'll take up your offer sometime.....Sometime....what the hell, just PM me when you're bored and I'll come over.

The trans blew up a while ago, and INTENSE did a rebuild and upgrade on it. All new clutches, valve body(which had actually been displaced when the channel plate gasket blew.), etc..., basically everything but higher gears, and the shift kit. I didn't get an input shaft because I'm not in danger yet there, and I couldn't afford the LSD at the time.

Next is a DHP Power Tuner Suite for the laptop, then headers and high flow cat.
Then the input shaft and LSD(maybe a shift kit, but I like the way the car shifts on the road.)
After that, I'll assess, and possibly start thinking about cam/head packages.
Upgraded gearing is the last piece on my list, if the car makes it that far.

If I blow it before then, I'll get a motor from Ed Morad and work on a fulll build one the old motor.
