Whoa, just saw your "5 second" 0-60 time...? Will'* L67 has nearly 280hp at least (that'* underestimating probably) and he runs 6.6 seconds. An intake and exhaust, and wires can't shave over 3 seconds off the stock 8.5ish 0-60 time.

Did you have a cardomain page? I remember seeing a silver/gray 1990 with a spoiler and decals on it. Is that you? If so your car is in great shape for a 1990!

honestly man, that 5 second time was an overexaggeration, but not by much, I have low high 6'* low 7'* but nothing close to a 5 second time. Sorry about that. Yes that is my car u saw, thanks. I wash it and vacumm it almost every day. I try to keep her maintained. I will admit, my car is pretty damn fast for a 90 model, she'* got something about her that'* special, but I dn't know what that is.

lol, these cars arnt king ****.. I own both a 165hp 3.8 (which you have, I think...) and a 175-180?hp series 1. My 87 weighs 3300, and my 92 weights 3500, and both of them dont get up to 60mph in 5seconds...more like 8seconds... The older one is easyer to spin the tires (smaller tires/wheels) newer one can spin the tires, but its more low end, it would rather go 140mph ...

How/why did you put 14'' wheels on your car? lol... its like as bad as riding on donut spares...

I'm not very big on wheels. I have friends that have huge wheels and most of them look ugly. I am for going with the simple look. The 14'* I have on my car look just fine to me, plus they were a great deal and there chrome, so I can't ask for more then that. I am more into car audio then anything else. When I get my ssei, I am gonna get eithe 17'* or 18'*, and I want to wrap whatever rims I get with pirelli tires.
