a lil off topic:

I notice that nitrous can be safe with dyno tuning but, what i want to know is what about a turbo? Can a turbo be safely run on our 4.0L blocks with a modest 6 or 7psi and a good dyno tune?

Oh, i already know about the powerhouse screamn but thnx anyways. I think from what i've herd that a intercooled system would be the best way and most reliable. is this correct? I just put two and two together exhaust gases(which are obviously hot) = heat. more heat = robbing engine of hp.(lol al lil math for ya old geazers lol jk[8D]

John,
So I'm showing the wife your web page and all the stuff you have done to the car and she has one question. How much $$ do you think you have in the car to include the price of the car? Those are great numbers!!

Well.... if you include everything including the mistakes... like the fact I'm on my 3rd aftermarket muffler then I'm up around $8,000... which is about how much more a GT would have cost me compared to my V6....
