    Used to drive this. Parted it out after the local constabulary informed me that any appearance of this car on the street would lose me 1000 bucks for every local cop that saw me. 03 Mustang GT, Maximum Motorsports 3-link w/ coil-over conversion & tubular control arms, delrin bushings, Baer brakes, fully built ported/polished/bored 5.5L SOHC motor, comp cams, sodium filled valves, hi rev valve kit, 175hp direct port wet nitrous, 11:1 compression, methanol injection, 10lbs supercharged boost & 3-stage intercooling. Made 340hp to the tires on motor, 540 on boost & methanol, 750 with the nitrous running. Gutted to 2980lbs. Completely terrifying to drive. In 3rd gear a roll into the gas would break the tires loose with 295's on the back.

    This was taken while I was installing the blower.

    Just before I decided to go the blower route. It had the nitrous kit running a 125hp shot. 475 to the tires in this trim. Should have stopped right here.

    Now I drive an 09 Chebbie Cobalt Sedan SS with the brilliant 2.0L Turbocharged LNF EcoTec engine. Came with Brembo's, handles like a RWD car, nice race seats. This is the first car I didn't feel like I needed to make any changes to. The engine is perfect, the turbo tuning is brilliant, brakes and handling are really impressive and nobody on the freeway that's trying to block me from moving over a lane or merging really expects it to squat and launch like it does. It also gets 28MPG in mixed driving. This is the single best built car I've ever had and it's a shame it happened with an econobox sports car.

    I had a Saturn Ion Redline (same as the SS but with no automagic option and rear opening "suicide" doors for the back) and loved that car. This was before the LNF engine when the LSJ (supercharged) was in there. The turbo LNF car made a good bit more power though but the Redline ended before it ever got that powerplant. Great little cars to the hot compact market. Too bad they never made it in a hatchback :)

    I have upgraded my life, lol. New company car is a Mini Countryman S, awd turbo little thing.

    I also acquired my Pa's old truck. lifted it about an inch, threw on some 32's, plasti dipped the wheels and trim, added a camper shell, "finished" the interior of the bed with a removable insulation platform ,carpet, fleece headliner and LED lights with 12v outlets for those impromptu camping trips.
