Gunna race my friend's brother's 1987 5speed Ford thunderbird Turbo Coupe. Best time on the quarter is 16.3 i did 15.9 so it's real close we will have to see. BTW the car is pretty cool rear wheel drive 2.4L I-4 Turbo running 17 psi cranking out 190hp. It's a big ass car though so it feels kinda like a v6 stang

blk, i resent that, tbirds are definetly not crap. I had a 96 4.6 before my focus, and if I could go back and have that car, even though i love my focus so much, i'd go back to it in an instant. Of course in this race, it's going to be close, very close. i'm very interested in the results.

Sorry, but its a 2.3, not 2.4. Be carefull, those things can be fast, he must have somethingwrong with his. My buddy's turbocoupe did m,id 14's with 18 psi and a exhaust and thats it.

his t-bird should be a lot faster than lo 16s, although if it's a piece if he loses you should get his turbo because he sure doesn't need it
