      they have multiples of this car ... one car really did have nitrous , that is the one that races the S2000 in the scene at the air force base. but if you notice they use 2 different cars in that one scene. at the line there is a car with a red racer 2 sparco steering wheel ( car that is all show) and then after the race is over you see a red steering wheel cover ( race equiped car) . because alot of the times in the movie there is only 1 real car and alot of fake dublicates.

      i know this if off topic but same goes for the girl racing the nissan in the same scene. when you see her making her bet she has a car equiped with black racing seats ... but when she's up to the line they are the stock nissan seats.

      Dunno whats in the car, but doesn't that kid from Malcom in the Middle own the car? Frankie Muniz? I could have swore I heard he bought it (one of them...like all movies, there was more than one. Just like 'Gone in 60 Seconds', there were a bunch of that GT500-look-a-like).



    14. 08-09-2004 11:18 PM #14
      also there where 2 cars for the s2000. when they are racing at the desert if you look behind them you could see the shape of the window and its from a HONDA CIVIC.. they whole movie is about HONDA civics. you could buy them cheap and buy parts in pepboys

    15. 08-09-2004 11:19 PM #15
      yea Frankiedid buy that car but his MOMMY told him to take out the NOS

    16. 08-10-2004 09:53 AM #16
      Well here is a supposed spec sheet for that car....i am not sure of the accuracy of it but the guy states that it is obvious.

      If you want to know about any of the other F&F cars he has them on car domain

      First line in the engine mods:

      Engine: VW 2.0L SOHC, 1996cc, 4-cylinder, 16-valve.

      Ya....where's the supercharger at?

      hahah 16valve! ahaha supercharger! But wait it gets better.

      150 shot of nitrious???? are you crazy?? Lets MORe than double the stock output. I hope frankie doesn't blow himself up.


    19. 08-10-2004 04:18 PM #19
      Yea... WOW... 16v stock engine... And like said, 150 shot of nitrous would blow the living hell out of our loved 2.0's... Especially if you used it for an extended period of time. People are just stupid, they make me do this:

    20. 08-10-2004 04:50 PM #20
      say the thing even says SOHC ... how retarded can you be

    21. 08-10-2004 05:18 PM #21
      Thats the first GLX with a 2.0 i've ever seen. What a joke

      The Fast And The Furious were faced with this quandary when selecting the proper ride for this role. It would have to be something outrageous, with all of the requisite bells and whistles and Scott Centra's Jetta fit the bill perfectly. Yet even before its starring silver screen performance this Fast And Furious Jetta was already a celebrity in its own right.

    23. 08-10-2004 07:10 PM #23
      By celebrity they of course mean laughing stock. Oh I mean, it's kinda cool...

    24. 08-10-2004 07:51 PM #24
      im just wondering how much this kid paid for this and why he would spend so much on this auto 2.0l jetta

    25. 08-10-2004 07:54 PM #25
      I heard It's a 2.0 crossflow, that's suppercharged. I'm sure it rip's, it is way to blingy though!

      maybe the car in the pictures is not the real car because that motor does not have a blower on it for sure

    33. 08-12-2004 09:31 PM #33
      also....at the bottom of his list of mods page, it says 265 whp WITH nos....if it has 150 shot nos, that means it has 115 hp WITHOUT nos. isnt that what the stock 2.0 puts out? and its supposed to have a supercharger? man, thats one CRAZY blower!

      Maybe the "supercharger" is one of those electronic superchargers that hides in the intake tube. Because we all know how well those work.

      Well it's 115 crank hp and the 150 shot would bring it up to 265 hp at the crank without the "charger". The specs state 265 hp to the wheels so at least they are "BS"ing the hp in the correct direction
