Default seeing is the only way of beleiving

today i seen the last thing i thought i'd ever see. it was a nissan frontier with a supercharger from the factory . So now i'm looking for lamborghini with a 4 cyl engine but ofcourse it'll probably be supercharged too. so much for supercharged cars being a rarity. i think i'll go get a supercharger for my push lawnmower tommorow.

lol the */C'd Frontiers have been out for a few years now....but they're worthless....Only difference between the 2 is the gas you run in it....They both suck ***. So be happy still for your SSEi...There'* a power difference between the N/A and */C

The Xterra also can be boosted. The Mercedes Kompressor (*/C) cars are out there too

"1986 Lamborghini Countach"
"this one has a 2.8L, V-6, with a 5 speed manual transmission"

Kit car, but close?

I used to have a link to a website where they build you a replica of a Countach with all sorts of engine types. They even had a Series II! Prices are around $40k or so and they actually look really nice.

Believe it or not, the 4-banger Frontier is a better buy for a performance enthusiast.
The */C engine is making just about as much hp and torque as the block can handle, whereas the 4-banger is a KA motor, I believe, and can handle well over 500hp with the right mods.
