I love that. Anything more American?

Quoted from Greenfun13:

Sweet STi ! I always wanted a second gen.. (first gen available in North America) now they all have been used and abused and have high mileage..
Hoping to get the windows tinted either this weekend or next. I am planning on going with a lighter tint than I normally do, thinking 50% everywhere and 70% on the windshield. Think it should look pretty slick when its done.
Already have an AP with a tune from Randy at Mountune, but ordered an E30 tune to play with.
I also ordered a JL Audio Stealthbox and a few JL amps the other day. The system wont be as crazy as the one in my Mustang (Sundown U12 sub in a 3cuft box being fed ~2200rms by an old Rockford Fosgate T20001BD lol), but it should be wayyy better than stock!
I probably wont do many, if any exterior mods. I don't like the extra attention, it's already bad enough here in CA for car enthusiast.. I am even going to install an exhaust cutout and use it to tone down the loudness by forcing the exhaust out of one tip vs two when I want to be more stealthy.

They are kinda heavy at 3,460lbs.. and according to Google:
"In 100% factory trim, a Focus RS could be expected to run the 1/4-mile in about 13.4 seconds at 103 mph."
However! With JUST an upgraded Front Mount Intercooler (FMIC), a downpipe, and a tune on e30, would put it at 403 whp / 461 wtq (measured at the wheel). Not too shabby for a 2.3L!

I wouldn't buy this car if you care about 1/4 mile times, I would buy this car if you like carving canyons and taking turns at blistering speeds.. If I want to go fast in a straight line, I will grab the keys to my Mustang.

Cool thanks for the info and yea my question was just a quick performance indicator, I was more curious on the wieght. 350 HP is no joke in a small car and i bet its fun as hell in stock trim, let alone some upgrades. Plus AWD. I need to search for some launch vids!

You have good taste, nothing like having some boom while driving(plus I enjoy the massage).

I buy from Sonicelectronix-hard to beat their prices

They only made 23 yellow ZR1s in 2012. This one is even more rare since it has the PDE package with yellow stitching inside.

Good eye!

I’ve never owned a Corvette. I love the 50s - 60s- early 70s styling. The local Chevy dealer had a pretty striking current red ‘vette in the prominent corner spot. I had a few minutes, so I pulled in and asked about it. It turns out that you cannot buy or order a new Corvette with a manual transmission!?! WTF?

They dropped the manual for the C8. Unfortunately, the days of the manual transmission in a Corvette is definitely over. It'll get even more neutered when the E-Ray electric Vette is introduced.

#2813 17 days ago

That is why I’m never going to get rid of mine.

2012 GLI

Oh, I know it well. I have a 2012 Tiguan with APR Stage 1 and the red coil packs. I freaking love that car!

#2815 16 days ago
Quoted from tjprice222:

Yea stage 1 was done while mine still had paper plates, with the intake. Then after hitting a dear a couple years ago I had an Audi intercooler installed. Its got so much more power than my new to me 2020 A3.
I got the Audi so I could quit repairing the Jetta but with the oil cooler leaking I didn't get any solid leads on selling it so I figured I'd try and tackle the job myself.
I hope to report later this week it's back on the road.
Funny, my wife has a 2015 Tig, no tune and its been almost bullet proof aside from the typical intake de-carb done at 100K miles.

Do you do your own basic maintenance on your Tig?

I love the Mach1, in Europe it's impossible buy it with Handling Package, the G-Wagon it's like a tank.

I spy APR, but why only the box, should have gone both pieces and had the back tube too

Quoted from Meegis:

Bang for the buck didn't seem as measurable.
Back when I got it, the tunes and box was on special.

Driving in Huntington Beach and I about broke my neck doing a double take looking at a custom Jeep that caught my eye. I had to try and find it later and it ended up being a custom retro Jeep AEV JL370 classic edition. Looks sharp

Those of you that remember the truck and Cougar I did the rotisserie restos of might like to know what's next? Well this is it.
20230128_133836 (resized).jpg

20230128_133857 (resized).jpg

69 m code xr7 convertible. I'm converting from fmx auto to top loader 4spd. No rotisserie at this time. I'm going to kinda ratrod it, leave it satin black but with a complete new int, upgrading the front suspension, performer rpm intake and possibly aluminum heads and headers. I'm also putting the chin spoiler, rear wing and hood scoop from the Eliminator and "comfortweave" upholstery with high back buckets.
