Nissan sentra
power: 126hp (if i remember....the base model)

Imagine now on a Bonneville SSEi

Someone on clubgp has a 86' turbo Tempo. When it was stock it ran a [email protected] With the turbo it ran a [email protected] 87mph I believe. I think he just went to the junkyard and got the turbo from an old 80s New Yorker. He did some fabbing and got it on the Tempo.

I wonder how much structural integrity you'll have left after you chop up a well-used 20+ year old car

kind of a dumb question, but wouldnt you not be allowed to run a car like that at most any public track anywhere? i mean dont the cars have to have some sort of structural integrity to run at a track?...i mean you cant just strap a lawn chair onto a rolling chassis and hit the track!
