jack i serously hope your ready to back those words wup with some gear grindin, b/c my 1969 429 mustang is one of the fastest cars around here, at about 1050 hp when dynoed and not much gets way from me. one of the few to beat me in a flat out race was a '77 Vett with supercharged 502, ok i have a blower and NO2, but that Super charged Vett...i kept up but that about it

Whats your mod list? if its too much to name, name all that matter. Suspension especially. I have forged and titanium internals, if i run excessive boost- i can run 400 HP +- a little, with out throwing anything. you still make 2x more HP, which is why there is no doubt in my mind you can pwn me in a straight, how well do you do on a road course? Real tracks have turns :P

just under 25K as of now,, but bear in mind i got the car for 200 bucks and resotred it first it was going to be a kinda Pro-touring/weekend drag car that kinda balloned out of control...Kristen, bless her, helped out putting it together and she drives it every now and then. that puppy is fast and cand turn quick, a friend of mine is exclent with steering systems and im not sure exactly what he did but it could outmanuver a small saturn or honda ive raced pro stock on the dirt track with a car built in my Uncles garage with a toyota motor and that sucker runs like a champ, could have low oil hi temp and narry a burp well past 5 grand

I have alot of respect for these garage built engines, we go to the track, drive our car 150 miles to the nearest strip, haul ass, run low 10's and stuff and drive the long road all the way back home, when those other kids in expensive cars get a trailer to load their car there, run crap times on slicks, and tow themselves back home. Garage built all the way mang. You know where 'upstate rallycross' is in newyork? I've raced there a couple of times- complete amature stuff, very fun. I don't know how close you are, but you should check it out sometime- mostly Euro cars i've seen there, but i've also seen a few muscles

I'd love to be able to rebuild and completely mod over my car. I'm starting with a lawmower first, for simplicities sake.

Problem with new mechanics: they rely too much on technology. Old fashion technicians are the best. Usually find the problem the first try.

yeah. all they do is hook up their computer, and try to figure it out. A real mechanic should be able to tell by sound whats going wrong.
