where did you get those power numbers?

a higher stall torque converter and an LSD (to smoke more than one tire) plus a turbo or super high compression is probably the only way to do it. just doesn't have enough to do it otherwise.

you could probably get a quick spin with a real high stall alone but you would end up doing it at every light.

several things:
the auto trans is the same as the one for the zetec so there could be torque converters and lsds available for it.

there is no turbo kit for the spi but using eBay parts it could be fairly cheap. just research the hell out of them first.

other than that, mount washer fluid jets behind each front tire, Install auxillary washer fluid bottle with motor, fill with oil, wire toggle switch or button on dash and SMOKE
