wait is this the car?? with a CAI/tune/lsd/gears you could easily toast him.....we already have a 0-60 of 6.5, and the 1/4 mile is 15.3. With all those mods you are down to about 14.7 in the 1/4 compared to his 15.0. Dont let those retarted hp numbers make you scared. You should be really close to what he is.

whatever. I'm just saying, you wouldn't be paying a fortune. I know **** happens, but it would be more economical in the long run to invest in something like a kit, so-as you wouldn't be paying out the *** daily for gasoline. The oil companies made, what, 10 billion this quarter? and they're not increasing refinery capacity, so I think gas prices are gonna skyrocket. i.e. 1970's high

My brother's is stock now, but he might have a different pulley by the time he comes up here next. And no, I'm not a bad driver, and maybe "blew me out of the water" is a little strong, but he beat me pretty good. Was hoping it would have been a little closer.

I had an '00 GTP and that was almost as fun as the 'stang. They can be modded up as much as our 'stangs. I had a CAI, SLP dual exhaust with u-pipe removed, and chip, and I had some good kills before I totalled it 6 months after buying it new.Never got the functional GTO hood or smaller pulley installed.

You can check these "sleepers" out at www.grandprix.netto see what they can do.

I still want to get another '00 just for fun.
