YA they are ran kinda weird and they panic when there is more then 10 people there.

Thats crazy. Ive never seen a car have problems except for spinning on the dyno in the 700 hp range up. Worst part is there dyno is off about 30-40 hp in the lower number like may car and its about 75-100 shy from about 650 up. But if you hit it on a dyno day its cheap

So much for doing my stereo today, turns out I have some gay infinity system with separate amps on each speaker making it almost imposible to use the stock harness. Yah now I get to run all new wires... Fml

My SVT is in need of a stereo system. the stocker sucks. BUT if it's going to be my weekend warrior i don't want to upgrade it...

i'm thinking of getting rid of my zx3 and buying an imprezza or escape.

Just put in something that is easily removable.

Rear end is still undecided but Im thinking miata with a stock torsen lsd.

Im aware of a few things needing to be changed such as the thermostat housing to a water pipe and a different oil pan.. What im not sure is how and where to mount the engine, or what starter to use. Im also going to remove the spare tire well and have a fuel cell in the trunk. It also may only be a 2 seater. Not sure on that yet.

So yeah. Its out. Im writing up a goals/to do list so im going to follow it. Just thought Id let you guys know cause I never decided on what I would do.

Have you thought about getting the transfer case from an AWD X-Type Jag? I thought they used the MTX-75 with a transfer case where the intermediate shaft sits on the Focus MTX-75.

I had Chet's Machine Shop hone my Toyota block. They are in the same building as Element Racing.

mine did not come with the sub. but it's not really the bass that concerns me, it's just the side speakers. they sound like junk compared to my zx3 stockers.

i really want the escape because it's pretty good on gas, has more room, and has enough power. (v6 4wd)

ohh and i want to get a Harley. i've been looking at a few lately!

yeah i thought about that once but i dont want AWD or the POS 2.5 or 3.0 duratec. Not to mention neither the escape or jag rear ends can handle much more power than stock. I want lightweight components and rwd so I can drift.

Mark if I recall correctly you said bikes suck.... And another question, why? You lookin to pick up some more chicks? Thats all theyre good for. I'd rather get something like derron's for example. (sorry if I spelled it wrong, I forgot lol). Or actually an SV650 I Kinda want but yeah noo cant do that stuff right now.

Im not really much of a fan of those either though. I like the stuff right in between.

Sorry I kind of have a thing against harleys... I just think theyre made to show off to people and pick up women. To be fair I have seen a few I didnt mind.

You should get a vmax. Those are nice too. Whatever it is if you do, make sure you get yourself a GOOD helmet and some gear.
I believe my boss's Arai was like $600 or so.
