Great you have your house paid off. One of the better fianancal resonablity's vs throwing $5000. into a car w/ a loan & having house/ vehicle payments. Good luck w/ your choice,,,Well just to let you know i already have a house paid off so what more do i need money for. im turning this car into a track car and prob get a st or a sti duno yet. and its just 5 k i can do a clutch for bout 600 from my mech. idk if he knows about turbos but yea so about 5k then somthing to think on. and i dont wanna be the fastest in charlotte thats for tom. lol if i wanted that i would do a engine swap..
i remember that sucker from waaay back in the day. ridiculous car. i still say you should have thrown slicks on it and went for it at least once for kicks and giggles. 10.9 on radials is just nuts but i think you could have shaved a full second off your time if you put it on slicks and just went for it but i understand your purpose for not doing it. you were making a point that the car could lay a scathing time down the track and still be reliable. if memory serves though, you drove the car to and from the track and eased it out of the hole every single time right? how many miles did that car accumulate before you got rid of it?I am building something new but not going for the fastest anythng any more , been there done that , still have the 12 sec SVT tho
