HA!



about 3 hours until we start the 10 hour drive......... Can't wait for the doors to open and walk in looking like I've been shot through a cannon.

Nothing like a red-eye drive to go racing!

Left the G8 at home ?

Would have had the engine broken in and ready to redline by the time you got back...

I bought the car 3 months ago and already has 5500 miles.

I waited till 1500 miles and put on a CAI and had the tranny and engine reprogrammed. stock tranny was a slush box with its stock profile. Now it will break the tires loose in 2nd and 3rd. 365hp just wasn't enough 415hp and 435tq feels so much better LOL

and taking off the speed limiter of course... only been to just shy of 160... I'm "told" they'll go high 170's but I think 150's is plenty for a daily commute... 170's is just excessive LOL

I set the cruise at 138 the other day for a couple miles with no one on the road... You can physically see the gas guage moving ever so slightly LOL.

I'm trying to convince the girlfriend that the twin turbo kit would help fuel economy b/c if 415hp is better 550+ ought to be just right

Poor mustangs just don't like a 4 door blowing them away LOL
