FM modulator. I plug my laptop or my PDA or either one of the kids' MP3 players into it, and it plays through the FM band.

Holy COW!

Even with a bad fuel pump......at lunch today, had 2 co-workers in the car and a half tank of gas. Pulled gently out into the street (2 lanes each way plus a center turn lane), had to go all the way across.......no traffic, eased out to keep the scoops from scraping, then at about 15mph, I mashed it (about halfway across the intersection).

SCREEEEEEEEEECH! Lit 'em right up on dry clean pavement.

That first video was hard to watch....I feel for that tranny. Hope it holds up like you say it will.

Also, I've read you mention this 130mph top speed thing before. Is this a big deal to you? No disrespect intended but we used to run 140 plus in the GTP'* easily and I know my Bonnie gets up to 130 real quick and has plenty of pull left. I just haven'* had the chance to let her go with the taller gearing. 150 does not seem out of reach I would think. I've heard claims of hitting 160 in a modded GTP.
