Solstice

Home  \  Domestic Cars  \  Solstice

I was looking at the new solstice I like the look. But 15.8 in the quarter isn't too impressive. How much would it cost around to get it to run a 13.
Since Im leaving for the airforce Jan 1 after basic and i can't get settled Ill have cash lying around and Definetly want to purchase an awesome ride.

How about a V8 small block with a turbo :hi:

but is slapping a small block in equitable sure it sounds all good till i have to redo my transmission new struts etc and it cost me an astronomical amount.
And whats the cost of a good turbo?

Maybe if it was an older car, but a brand new one? lol.

I think you were kidding though, or atleast i hope :mrgreen:

Why do people constantly think sports cars are unimpressive if they aren't drag racers? my RX7 in stock form was slower than that. I wish my Fiat could do 15s in teh quarter... My SVT Contour was only barely quicker and it was a damn quick street car and more than fun.
