Why yes, I am 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.

course the small engine is gonna need something to make it go faster. its not the point anyway.
the whole reason that people love the jap cars is due to the style and the bang for your buck.
sure you could sit there and put a gas guzzler in a striped down chassis but whats the fun?
isnt it all about the rush? i hear you ask. hell yeah, but whats better big rush harsh ride, or slightly smaller rush with smooth ride?
again personal choice. you might prefer the look of the balls out muscle cars, i prefer the restrained power of an evo
and i was only teasing bout the compensating thingy.

The Dodge Tomahawk can reach 60 miles an hour in about 2.5 seconds
The 500-horsepower Viper V-10 engine powering the dual rear wheels gives this radical vehicle a potential top speed of nearly 400 miles per hour.
Sounds like fun huh?

had turbo on my atv before, s*** cost about $1500, my engine had to get rebored a week after using it so it had to go, it increased HP like crazy, could peal out in 3 or 4th gear easily.. now it only peals out in 1st and 2nd :/ I'm not sure what the max speed was with the kit, I'd say about 90 or 100mph, but w/o it (as is right now) it only goes 70mph spose its better then nothing, though I enjoy running from the cops down sand roads
hmm, I really need to get a car though I only got the learners permit coz last year I aint have my social security# and didnt no where to get it (i r foreign.. lol) so I forgot bout it and this year when I turned 16 I went and got my learners permit.. pretty boring ridin with someone beside ya...
