I know all about that anticipation to hear it hit the rollers. Can't wait to see how she does!

I'm sure you guys can imagine how excited I am, especially since I haven't even laid eyes on it in person yet :D
I see. I thought you had already gone and gotten it, but keeping it inside the garage till the weather improves.

You put a deposit down or what?

i forgot about the xr7, they are the same then huh. My friend's dad had one when we were in HS, he was a DEA and used his own car iirc, we thought it was pretty bad ass - all black with aluminum wheels

Lmao yeah that guy is definitely the Ben stein of car show presenters. But yes the 89-93 sc's and xr7s were quick for their day but dogs by today's standards. Like 15.3 @ 93ish stock... The 94 95 ones were a good bit quicker because of the better blower, more aggressive trans gears etc.

Mine should be good for like high 12s, 13 flat at 110. I talked to the builder again today and he told me he ended up putting a custom grind cam in because the comp stage 1 cam is basically too mild. Also upgraded injectors again to 60lb now. I'm getting pretty serious lol

No shit. I figured you would end up about on par with my Civic, but my shit is only good for mid14's. You're gonna upset a few modern car owners at stoplights, lmao. Keep those wheels, nobody will expect it at all!
