Modification? Plenty.

Ported 8 valves 2.2L

I'm really happy with the torque and power curve.
Baseline run was 15psi, in red.
Power run was 20-21psi, in blue. Added couple more degree timing, pulled some fuel out and added 4-5 psi.

Even after pics and calling the car GLH I still have no idea what kind of car that is.

Ahhh, that explains it. Seems like Chrysler puts out something completely bonkers every 10 years or thereabouts so I'm not surprised.

LOL, I had one of those POS back in the day.

Went through 2 CV joints per wheel in the 5 years I had it. :D

Don't want to talk about all the other problems I had with that car. Good times. :(

I didn't even know these cars existed. Looks like fun.

Reached my goal of 110mph of trap speed.

Now, if I can drive better, I'd have a mid 12 second car.

Hooking up has got to be tricky - what tires are you running?
225-50-15 BFG DR

To be honest, I'm more interested to see what the car can do (trap speed), than what I can do (time). Also, to get over 110mph, I'd have to shift to 4th gear using the 225-50-15 tires.

Parked due to broken orange muscle car

How did the Turbo Van do?

Very nice #s/car. I don't care what anyone says those things are awesome.

Easily mid 12's, should be able to get into the 1.8xx range on 60' with enough traction. I'm pushing a heavy 96' Thunderbird (3850#) to high 12's at 105mph with only 299 rwhp by cutting 1.86 60's. Still waiting on my stock long block 3.8L V6 to die but she had held up to 10-11psi from a Vortech for 60,000+ miles now.

Yes Gus is no longer with us. He inspired me to buld my ride, a 2500 lb, (with fuel and full interir) 271 WHP/322 Torque, fun machine.

I figured that I already had the car, might as well make it fun.
