All b/s. Nothing will happen.

There was so much b/s in your earlier posts that even if it is true, no one will believe you.

I'm going with carbon fiber headlights.

The way I see it, if you're not gaining 100hp or signifigantly improving handling, it's probably not worth waiting so long for, and paying so much for. I'm guessing it's expensive from the down payment.

Turbos and whatnot are readily availible over here, and you don't have to put up with making it fit US standards. I'm guessing a motor, but hoping not. You were just saying how much money you've sunk in this car, and if you're doing what I think you are, you're just making things worse. Keep in mind this is my , I hope you end up liking whatever you do.

Straigh liner? Correct me if I'm wrong here, but I'm betting that stock vs stock his F-body would leave you in the dust in the corners.

Also, if you don't know what he's talking about, why are you assuming he is making a corner carver? A good drag car requires A LOT of suspension work.

Its nice to hear someone else who realizes going straight fast isnt as easy as everyone thinks.
People always says that car wont do anythign but go straight, if that was true they still have no idea what it takes to drive or even set up a suspension to get a High HP car to stick.

Your car isnt balanced even if it handles as well as you say, it still is slow as balls

So we went from selling the car to a turbo to selling the car to keeping the car for commuter purposes to dumping in an expensive JDM engine?
