First off what the hell were you thinking when you said that if you put 2grand into a mustang thats already in good condition that you can run 11's my ass you can. Out of a sh*tty 5.0! The Ford 5.0 is one of the slowest v 8's in a "sports car"

But I agree with you on the RX7, that rotary engine is awesome, theres not another engine out there that can rev out for an extended period of time and not blow. On an RX7 you can put the pedal to the metal and only worry about when the throtle body is gona turn red. What I do have respect for is the RX7!!!!

yea, i kinda Cuban-ized it and exaggerated about the 2 g's.  you get the point though.  you CAN make them gas guzzlin v8's run fast without putting TOO much money into it..lol

thats one thing i love bout my car...taking them revvs up to about 8k. Im not street ported and dont got an MSD so there is really no point pulling farther, power dies around there...>=)

2k Sentra XE, waiting for ECU to be released, and turbo will be installed in this sleeping beauty...not really a beauty. More like the ugly car that can kick some @ss... Turbo should boost this car to approximately 200+ Hp.

My mach1 has an 8k tach straight from the factory, no mods, no upgrades. I don't expect it to run 11's straight out when I finish it, but hells bells ... low 12's I do expect. What am I going to do with the thing, race to the gas station?

I love the old muscle cars, you just can't beat the look. Slap a tricked out, clean as can be rx7 beside a clean *slightly* tricked classic 69 mach 1. You already know what car gets more attn.  :)

RX 7 are sweet, never seen a mach1 though. I have pics of one guy who installed turbo in his Sentra. Here they are.

Turbo is that thing with the blue string around it. It was positioned there to hide it from nosey cops. I heard from my friend that he got it to approximately 300 HP..

What?! Don't know what a mach 1 looks like?!?! Where is my whoopin stick at ....

I know ya have seen it, just don't realize you have. They are getting rare. I have seen a fully restored version of my R code sell fo upper $50k range, more then once. Mine looks like crap, but here are a few pics of the thing as I tear it apart.

Brief history and few pics

Check this site for pics of a mach 1, only diff for this guy is minor stuff (km instead of mile type of things)
