    "nice to see some strong stuff"

    Yep, hear KB hit 850+hp on the stock long block and still room to go.

    They don't build them like they use too (60's-80's), I am glad they don't.

    yeah the cars that come factory turbo/super charged have soo much potential. With forged internals and a computer set up for boost, its amazing how much power you can make with not a whole lot more money.

    My friend in college had an '04 supercharged cobra, he switched to the KB and a few small parts here and there and he was making around 750 to the RWs. That car was sick. We also had a super charged lightning that was 600+hp. (one of the lab rooms we had in college had a chassis dyno!)

    I wish i had the money to get a car like that (they are hard to find used, and when you do, its pretty obvious that most of them have been driven hard)

    yeah its hard, i do the same with the ninja. Just think about how many miles you aren't putting on the car.

    I work at a bmw dealership. before the cars come out. I used to get to drive them on a closed course to see what they can do. During the last class for the new X5 somebody flipped one.

    That sounds like it would be fun its always scary on open roads to wind stuff out and hope no one pulls out infront of you.
