I hear ya, man. My 98 is the car I've had since I was 15 as well, and I completely understand the passion that goes into these older cars' performance. And I know what you mean about wanting a car that you can still feel and hear a bit. It's the reason that I still want an 03/04 Cobra one day, and not a new Coyote, even though the two are similar in price and the Coyote does nearly everything better. It actually runs quicker than that now. Last track trip was 11.9s at 121 (that was the first trip with non-stock gears [3.73s]). And since them, the blower has been ported and I'm running about 2 more pounds of boost. Just haven't been able to get back to the track in this hot weather. And yes, it's a TON of fun to surprise the out of folks at the track with it.
