Holy crap. What a difference the two make. It is like a brand new car. It revs quicker, drives quicker, and sounds phenominal. I can't wait to bolt on the '00 manifold.
Oh, and for those of you haven't heard yet, the wife finally decided on a car... 95-99 eclipse spyder. Now I just have to get my wholesaler to find me one. :)

If I could do ANYTHING, I would get a F1 on the I-15 and take it to 250 mph.

Since we're talkin fantasy and all [;)].....lol

that motor has 32 more horse then the enzo and it weighs actually close to 300 lbs less. its a pure sports car in every sense of the word.

check out the june issue of motor trend. its also a lighter motor. its made of all aluminum and the motor is mounted farther back in the chassis for better weight distribution. 85% of the weigh is between the two axles.

I'd go for the GSX. AWD just makes me smile [:D].
By the way, you can't get a GS-X Spyder. In other words, you won't find an AWD Eclipse Convertible that came that way from the factory. Chassis will just twist too much under the load. There have been people who have done the conversion to their Spyders, but having to buy 1500 dollar convertible roof assemblies gets a little old after a while.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ferrari_599
Ferrari 559 is good for 612 horsepower.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ferrari_Enzo
The enzo is good for 650 horsepower.

Motortrend quoted the enzo higher, and the 599 lower then those two values... But either way, we are talking about the 599 being more powerful than the Enzo, and it just straight isn't. That being said, the 599 is an amazing machine. Just not an Enzo killer.

Yeah. They stole the suspension off of the Corevette. Of course, they say that the SOFTWARE is different, so it is, to them, an entirely different system. What BS. I am sorry, as much as I like a ferraris' performance, I don't think I would ever buy one. They company bugs me too much. But you let me play with a lambo and that is an entirely different story. The new Murciellago is sick. I want one, and damn creature comforts like comfy seats and a cd player... :D

And the super Saleen is the S7 twin turbo. They built it to take down the Veyron.
