just as fast now? it should be, many MANY things have changed since the car changed hands. Even when your car was running good you could'nt take Paco by very much, i think the Talon is about the same speed as always... It's just that the Isuzu is getting faster by the day.

paco's car was pretty goddam slow. when it was runing good ran a 15.9 at 87mph. that is not fast. but that was before some volvo intercooler and whatever else the shit was done. cant see it being that much faster, but for the price good bang/buck for sure.

i'd rather pay the same price, get a domestic, run faster, with 100more ftlbs of trq, no worse gas mileage, but just the common car factor sucks i guess.

my car is just fucked... bogging like crazy, exhaust manifold glowing from normal daily driving non-boosted... i believe an 89.99 new O2 sensor is the fix i need.

Ryan, since you've seen it run that, the car recieved the volvo intercooler, all stainless IC piping, turbo xs bov, boost controller, and now the head has been all cleaned up, the butterfly secondaries are hooked up again, and boost is at 14 psi. Stock was a measly 8? And 15.9, must'nt have been running good because BONE stock they ran a 15.2. We'll have to see what the 1/4 mile brings next year.

Craig; I've noticed that every time I drive by your place, your hood is ALWAYS open. Is this a new meaning to "airing out the engine"? or do you just like to walk by your car, over and over and look at how cool it looks under there.

I decided to do some work on the bike today after it sat sadly with a flat rear tire. I spend some precious time taking the rear rim off of the bike, than hassling taking the tire off the rim. I finally pull out the tube, put the new tube in, clean inside the rim and tire, fix the spring that connects the two brake shoes, heavely grease all the parts and assemble everything.

I also did a mental note on the front pads and caliper. Last time I went riding I was up a hour into the hills. After riding the brakes the whole way down, the front rotor seems to have turned blue and the pads are down to the rivets

Once we hit the corners i'll be within inches of your bumper with the high beams a blazing. Drag racing is for v-8's.. Once i get my timing set properly and get a new downpipe and flex pipe in it's going to be damn close.

That's a thing of the past with what can be done to I4's now, especially FI I4's as I'm sure you're aware.
