Thank god. That 4k spool on that shitty turbo was nuts. Tell him to get a real/better suspension, too, while he's at it and fix the oil leaks (If I remember correctly) lol

4k isn't that bad, it was just kinda slow. Felt like a 200hp focus would demolish him haha

350? Did he dyno it? It was way slow for 350 lol.

I was in Trevor's SVT with 300whp and TopSpeed kit w 4 people in it (150-200 lbs each) and it felt significantly faster still!

I'll invite Trevor over, you invite him over and we'll see in real time which is 'slower' on a 'race track'. ;)

Wait a second. I was never in on this conversation. My car is slow. Andrei, you should study for your exam so we can hang out this weekend.
