Why yes, I am compensating for something.
Um Cuervo are you compensating for something?
I total lack of style and horsepower by those "jap" cars in these movies. This 540 CI big block makes more then 1000 hosepower with just a 10% overdrive on the blower. And that's on pump gas without nitrous.
If you look at the link someone put up about nitrous, not NAWS (kids), you see it has a long hitsory for making "cheap" horsepower. These small motors that can't make ponies need this stuff to make any kind of time slips.
