Yo WTF is this thing? This car might have 168 hp at the flywheel with a 20hp nitrous shot! I thought they call it a "cold air intake." What kind of cold air is that stupid cone filter pullin in when it's mounted right above the exhaust? I guess heat doesn't rise...and I never figured out a non function roll bar. It's a "style bar" right? Last but not least...anyone who uses "headers" in the plural sense on a 4 cylinder engine should be kicked square in the *****.

Anyone who relys on HP numbers from the Tach needs to be put down.....
Pull that effin' G-tech unit off the dash, and go put that sucker on a Dyno.

I've got one of those old RAZZO Performance computers that mounts on your windscreen. We've tested it on three cars to figure out HP numbers and it was dead on +/- 2hp from a dyno immediately following. I agree though, anyone who uses those numbers from a performance computer to sell the car is a crackhead.
