Better yet, put some All Terrain tires on it and head to North Africa.

that's the whole point, i don't want two cars, just one to drive all year. (why i originally got the SVX).

i was looking to get an EVO X MR, but i can't even find them around here, and for the same price, i could get a 2001 911 turbo.

0-60 in 4 seconds stock is pretty tempting .....

Re: Hijack this thread: The Sequel!!

There is somehting extremely wrong with getting snow, salt, and road slime all over it. Therein lies the fun.

Touch the hiney.

Re: Hijack this thread: The Sequel!!

I just looked at your signature and found to your flowmaster clip...

How much does that entire set-up cost? Stock headers?

I think I paid around $300 at a local shop. It's been a long time, and I've been through many different setups. Right now - stock headers, no pre-cats, 2 into 1 high flow main cat, a glasspack, and a flowmaster 80.

It was at it's best tone when I had no cats, no glasspack, and just a flowmaster 80. It was evil. It was just too loud to keep from being pulled over.

It's not what I want it to be right now, but I've stopped messing around with it.

I already picked up a short gig starting tomorrow. Thank goodness. For now I'm enjoying my first day of unemployment in 3 1/2 years. Hopefully not too many more in my future.
