Oh, I forgot, what would I buy for 10Gs? Yep, a `91 TT Z. Soak it in. In fact, I did buy it, just today. I ran down to the lot where it was, bought it, and brought it back in time for the competition. I'm not officially involved, but I want to see how it competes with $7k in upgrades.
Did you know that Wilson Audio engineers will come out to your house and design a custom subwoofer setup? The room (man cave) is 42'x28'x12' and they said they can fully pressurize it.
Right now, but not being able to upgrade beyond that limits the lifespan of the notebook, severely. Who knows what demands new software will have 18 months from now?
Notebooks with only 8GB on non-upgradeable RAM are a bad idea.
If you don't rebuild/upgrade the top half of the engine, that's going to happen, but that's part of what he has planned, as well as replacing the seals while he's at it. Last I saw he was pricing a forged crankshaft, con rods, and racing cams. We never bolt on a forced induction system and call it a day, and if people don't like it (some have griped), there are numerous other shops around who can accommodate them. (Then they often come to us after it explodes.)Yeah, it...
We had a G37 in the shop not too long ago, with twin-turbos and >500whp. I think that's what the guy has in mind because he mentioned how much he'd like to have one as his own DD. I've found out the GT buyer already has a leg up, it's already outfitted with a Procharger, so this could be a lot closer than I first thought because he can put more money in other areas, like big Wilwood brakes and a better suspension. As for the C5, I think he's found one but it "has issues".
There will be a race and several performance metrics measured, but the fastest car isn't necessarily going to win. Okay all, let's say you have $10,000 + $7,000 for upgrades, what do you buy (must be available in the USA) and how would you modify it? They didn't go the route I would have chosen, maybe one of you will? What say you?
What hurts the Mustang is the price of good add-ons, not really so much their availability. It's pretty easy getting a G37 up to 500+ WHP with enough money left over for other upgrades, boosting the Ford 4.6L V8 is more expensive (short of bolting in a Procharger and praying) and its stock suspension and brakes aren't quite as robust (but it was $10k less expensive when it was new, so...). That C5... I have no idea what he has planned there.
I just don't want the heavy hand of the law to come in and smack the thread, drive-bys are okay but it was starting to go on for a little too long. In other news, we have a contest starting here at the garage, 3 guys are going to buy cars for under $10k, then add another $7k in parts (I'm paying for that part) to improve its overall performance (not just power). Then after 60 days the whole garage will vote to see who is the winner, with the grand prize being the...
Don't get my thread locked, I'd be quite cross if that happened.
