It'* alright.......

Not much in the way of appearance mods. Factory spoiler, small wheels, factory tails and not enough stickers.

It'* kinda quick but I've seen better.



I have driven it. VERY nice.

First time Bill came to my house I heard him coming.....then he showed up like 5 minutes later. Can't miss that whine.

Drove it.....I have never had a front wheel drive car pull so hard before.

Bottom line, it kicks but

I dunno what you are talking about Bump.

You spun the tires and peed yourself, then drove slower than granny grunt the next 5 minutes.

I don't really know. Todd Allen at Intense has the same engine setup with 3.69 gear ratio vs my car with 3.29'*. They professionally tune etc and he pulled 423whp.

I'd be happy with around ... nah.. I'll be content with around 400ish.. give or take a few ponies, what'* the difference at this level? I passsed the nuts/crazy stage a while back.

Well done.
400+ has a nice ring to it.

That'* the last picture I had Frank.. it was during the roof being done last fall.

I find that I spend more time adding horses than I do taking pics. Should probably stop the mods for a bit and take some pics.
