Just think, we thought our cars were sleepers already... imagine dropping a drive train in that thing and blowing the doors off of newer V8 pony cars! :twisted:

Every time someone on here makes a comment along those lines, i feel like i'm sleeping with the enemy :lol:

They're definitely not the enemy... I like them myself (I'd love to have an LS1 Camaro SS!!!), it's just that they know their cars are fast, and to have them seeing a car like an XR pulling past them while they're trying their best... you can only imagine how that would make most of them feel. :twisted:

Oh i know the feeling all too well. I've fallin to a couple serious Civics in my coupe as well as two different SHO's on two different occasions. Funny thing is though out of all of 4 people, NONE of them would run me from a stop, they all wanted to play on the highway where my 4.10 gears and 26'' tall tire runs out of breath :roll: In the 1/4 i would've slaughtered any of them. In the long run though i'd like to get a road race suspension built up on the Mustang.

i'm sorry for anyone who has these wheels (i had them on my old XR that i rolled) But they are ugly as $#!* im sorry but just bad. Back to that car that would suck more than i could imagine to lose everything you own in your house then it even takes your car to that sucks.
T3/T4 turbo, Stinger Performance manifold, FMIC, Knock off Greedy type s bov, T-5 trans, Steeda Short shifter, Stage 1 clutch, OBX FMU, adj Fuel pressur regulator, MBC, external wastegate, and a few problems. But i still love it WHY?
