That's all I've got.



Totally not jealous of all of your V8 powered stuff. Not even a little.



I hate you Johnny.

it has about 100 more hp then my car does, and is 1000lbs lighter. you just blast threw the gears. shifting from 4-5-6 takes the same amount of time as shifting 1-2-3.

i hit a bump at 130mph and got wheel spin....

Why is there what appears to be duct tape on the air filter?

Get a lot of runoff grass in your mouth staring agape at the intake manifold while you drive?

we had a problem with the engine running rich at anything over 60mph.
when air can hit an air filter, it will pass threw the air filter faster then the engine can suck it in. causing the engine to run rich. we covered the front of the air filter to stop this from happening. it fixed the issue at 130+mph

This seems to be a good reason for a ram air setup.
