thanks guys. i love this thing. stock they do 14.6 in the 1/4 and mid 13s with just a 100 shot. i have some plans for this like a 100shot, j-mod on the trans (the ford guys know what i am talking about), maybee some 3.73 gears (has 3.08 stock). best thing is, i only paid 3300 for it! and the interior is even nicer than the body, and it has a XM radio with the service still on it! everything works includeing the 10 disk changer.

Sweet jesus, look at that engine bay. It'll take you 2 days to change the plugs.

Yea but the whole point of the DD is you dont do anything to it so that it becomes reliable.

Wow! That is an awesome deal! I'm considering picking up a second car as a DD and for winter (old subie)...but the first thing that comes to my mind is how can I make it faster and then can I rallycross it...
