still haven't sold the car, and I'm closing in on four years now, 3 of them turbo'd. granted I have another car or two now also. No point in selling it, it's not worth what it once was, and I don't owe anything on it, and it still puts a smile on my face.
If you put a decent set of tires on the car, it'll hook. obviously not in the winter or in the rain, but during the spring/summer, depending on where I go WOT in the rpm range, I can get the car to hook by the end of second, and that's at 470whp.
Like I've said..the breaking point on these cars is in excess of 500whp. after that, along come the trans issues, then motor issues if it's just got a HG spacer. As I've said in the past, there's no point to having THAT much power for a FWD street car. long WOT pulls in 4th/5th will destroy your trans, and the heat created by those "longer pulls" isn't so great either.
you don't want tranny problems? go buy a quaife gear box and spend >4k at least.
