I think Ill go American now....

My first suggestion would be a Ford Thunderbird Supercoupe (3.8L V6 Supercharged) and the Ford Thinderbird LX w/ the 5.0L V8

The American crowd

I would have to say my personal favorites for tuning would be a Mustang 4.6L, Ford Focus 2.0L not the 2.3 Duratec, and if you want to go technical go with a 351 bored out to a 374 and have fun pumpin serious hp out of it. If your looking for four cylinder fun go with a Volkswagon golf, the germans always know how to make their cars. I know the VW isn't american but hey the other three are lol. And if you don't know this the 351 came as a windsor or a cleveland. If you can find a cleveland then you are god nowadays. Thx Ford for making so few of a great engine.
