    This is my car. I live on the West Coast of Australia. It's not that fast- 220hp at the fly from the factory and 385nm of torque but I have done intake/exhaust so maybe 240hp. Could probably run a mid-high 14 with a small tail wind as it is now :o But it's basically a stock '89 with the 4 speed auto and 3.08 gears, chirps the 1-2 gear change but that's it for now (16/45/225)

    It has a GM T700 shift kitted w/ corvette servo, bigger clutches and 2200rpm stall
    2.5" mandrel bent exhaust (bit loud, needs another muffler)
    Factory stainless steel headers
    Cold air intake to front wheel arch
    Pioneer CD, kicker splits, autowatch alarm
    Lowered
    Black tint

    I used to love turbo's till I went for a ride in a low 13 second V8. I am hooked on that terrifying wall of torque, with 3.9 gears and a strong motor they pull like a train. I have saved $500 towards the $900 rebuild kit I want but I am only on $100 a week studying and paying V8 fuel. My dad is going to help me rebuild it and put a big cam in it before Christmas.

    Something about a lumpy cam sounds mega tough, so obnoxious and illegal

    Backyard racing crew? :x:
