about 38 miles to the north. I'm smack in the middle between the springs and denver. Let me know, aside from a wonky work schedule I'll be around.

My buddy has a magnuson charged goat (roots type blower) and thinks this one is faster.

the monaro front end is much nicer. I might convert mine over to the monaro lights and bumper.

Sounds like a cue to start saving for that cobra rear.
Talk about a tight fit- but very clean install. The average joe would never know it was there... "uh yeah... that's my a/c compressor"

it's actually not too bad, big tires, heavy car.
With drag slicks I should think it could run a solid 12's time though.
