    I'd say everything's been beaten to death a hundred times on this forum.....so if you have something new to talk about, then let's talk. Otherwise, did you know NOS stickers add 1,000 hp to your car? :rolleyes:

    350 by far. Let's see you make 500hp n/a for $5k with a 302. Then once you've spent $10k doing so, let's see the block hold together. That's not even an argument :shrug:

    EXACTLY. Thank you. I love my car, but I will admit every fault it has. I love these cars because they're in my price range at this point in my life, they're reasonably quick with mild mods, I can work on them in my back yard, they're pretty reliable and they have a lot of potential. No, they're by no means fast, pretty much the whole drivetrain is a joke, and the suspension/brakes are very sad in stock form. They are not in any way shape or form a "muscle car", "sports car" or anything like this. We just got lucky that they sold a **** load of them and the aftermarket got massive.

    So you mean to tell me that it's cheaper to build an LS1 than it is to build on a 302? My buddy has the LS1 Camaro and he can NEVER do anything to it b/c intakes run $300 just to give you an example, and I paid $150 for mine.

    As far as I know, modern day 350s are an arm and a leg to modify, and that's real.

    And if a Mustang ISN'T a muscle car, than what the hell IS? :shrug:

    When did we start talking about LS1s? A "350" is the classic sbc, usually carbed. An LS1 isn't a 350. But as far as modding LS1s, the parts are lot more expensive, but it's a hell of a lot easier to go fast. A cam and bolt ons will get you in the 11s with traction and good driving.

    As far as being a "muscle car", "muscle cars" stopped being built in like 1972. A Mustang in the era was considered a "pony car", but I guess you could call it a muscle car.

    Around 14.0-14.1 with a good driver. You should be able to run with one.

    I love sleepers like that.

    Wrong.. To truly add horsepower, you must add VTEC and type R stickers. They add quite a few horsepower when they are missbadged. I'm not even sure if the vtec itself adds horsepower. But I know the stickers do!!
    On a different topic, I'm ****ed that my camera phone pic of the civic on dubz with 4 inch dual exhaust and a bigass wing didn't come out. Tough getting a pic doing 70 on 95 and trying to take a pic tho. Thing looked like a conestoga wagon! :rlaugh:

    Wings are fine, I don't care; other than being funny it doesn't cause any harm (unless it falls off - but I never follow a ricer for that reason). It's the damn 200db fart piped POS 4 banger sounding like a wet fart TRYING to move faster than a moped. Then they have to add 5000watt sound systems and park in a residential area and play their baggy-pant-sideway's cap wearing bull**** "music" all night. Sorry when is "punch a ricer in the nose" day?

    My neighborhood is predominantly mid 30's to late 40's so almost no rice. There's a riced out eclipse non turbo, but he also has a 3rd gen RX7, so it's ok. On my street, there's a black new edge gt, a red 06 gt, a green 96 gt, a worked to the balls bullit, a yellow mach 1, and my lx. The guy with the bullit also has quite a few other mustangs show up regularly. Most often, a 2003 cobra and a 93 Gt. The best part... No ricers! :flag:

    Next year I'm moving to the country... old farmer's road and you will have to drive for 3 minutes in my driveway before getting to the house :lol: That's the dream anyway...

    No ricers, no cars, just cows and the fresh smell of cow **** in the morning. :D

    Boss, you'll love it. I can sit outside all day and not hear a single fart cannon.

    Smoke'em all day long....they HATE it. But I figure if you can hear my exhaust, camshaft, and can SEE my sport comp tach sitting on the dash, you probably shouldn't be ****ing with me. :shrug:
