Not as good as the horse, but lol- I sold my Pontiac and I bought this. More convenient to have in college than a car.

My impression of Apop and Joe racing, in the rain, around curves, at 140mph (respectively): Image Image

I'd take a pic of my ride, but I'm afraid to break the camera...

More pictures can be seen in the root folder. Little over 300 hp on my 351. I've got a dana 44 in the front and a dana 60 in the rear. Should be lifting it 6 inches and putting 35's or 37's on it this winter :)

suweeeeet, real clean paint man, rear end and wheel/tire mods would work pretty well on that; the only thing second to my future project rig is my 1989 GMC Suburban (gonna have some sweet mods going on with that after I get around to building my rig). Don't have a digital camera or webcam right now, so can't get pic, but will get one posted soon :)

Well I'm getting a 6" rancho lift and I already have the rims picked out from American Racing and the tires picked out from BFGoodrich

Good domestic choices, I like some American Racing rim styles, and you're wrapping them in some decent rubber too; I'm still up in the air about my rims, found a couple I like, but one of the custom jobs I plan on doing to it is tub out the back so I can put some wide, wide rubber on the back, and deep 3-piece rims (this also necessitates a rear-end and driveline upgrade for me too, so I gotta save, carbon driveshafts don't come cheap, neither does the 4-link air system I'm going to put the truck on). Couple that with a 572 crate engine, Weiland 871 blower, and 175-hp shot of Nos for intercooling effect, and the prog controller, and the DFI system, and you have an expensive vehicle, lol.

You know what's funny though? With the setup I'm going with (DFI controller and everything else) I can actually get decent gas mileage on 9:1 compression (actually 8.5:1 to run the blower), as I got a whiz helping me on my truck, he analyzed everything we plan on doing to it, and told me that 20 mpg isn't impossible, and he wouldn't be surprised to see 25mpg, and that's more than factory. You see, gas mileage, in a lot of respects, is only limited by what kind of electronic hardware you use. If you try to go back with the stock ECU (not even flashing it) and stock fuel injectors, yeah, your gas mileage will suck, but if you use a DFI controller, a better flow injector, along with good plugs and even C.O.P (coil on plug), good gas mileage is possible. And the funny thing there is that I will be running 93 or 94 octane pump gas with this engine, which with my setup described above, is no hard feat. More efficient technology makes for more fuel efficiency.
