just a guess.

they do sound nice though, gotta give em that.


thats all i give credit for. michaels ute sounds very perdy with the ls1 tune and extractors all done to it, but thats about it :)

oh and its good for kicking sideways. ive driven it a couple of times and just tapping the acc. to take of from the lights it wheel spins :lol:

i dont care if he says he has 4 more cylinders than me. It still comes down to my hairdryer beating it. :wink:

I like the Maloos though..!!

I dont have a hardon for 8's this was simply a discussion and fergo308 was on the right track stating the 8's hes owned so I was letting him know about 1 of my cars 8)

Ive owned many cars from rotaries to 4's and 8's.. had my fair share of rushes.
As I said above for performance i have a Hq Monaro running a 400 chev small block thats 6.5 Litres of powerful torque... think of it as constant non stop boost.... yeah it drinks a little but as i said to modify anything to perform the the same standards it will drink like crazy

The dodge dakota is something rare here here in Australia so if anyone knows anything about them would love to hear it ...mines its running a cammed 360 chrysler small block and yeah great for towing and looks and sounds wicked
I tried to get pics up but it says ive reached my quota!!
The above cars is where the moneys at they go up in value each year!!

but my r33 is good to go to the shops in as i dont care if it get marked or scratched and is fun to drive

Thats why I started this topic to see if anyone here has had or has got a 8 as well as a 4 and they can talk about them as it is the other vehicles topic thread and there is plenty of 4's threads on here already :wink: :wink:

I like the part where you buy a car and it goes UP in value.

I really need a garage...

meanwhile, I recommend photobucket.com for all your pic uploading needs. It just works and it's just easy and it just doesn't suck like some of the others.

hahaha nuggets!

well im glad Michael hasnt thrown $$9345834985390 towards his car, he just did an LS1 tune and aftermarket air intake and it reaches 310horses at the wheels.

i'd slap him if he was to spend more money on his car, rather then spending his money on mine.




.....its a better cause. 8)

hey was just having a quick read of this.

own a modified 180sx and a VN 5 litre.

i see a few people here a saying v8's are not performance cars, this is so far from the truth its not funny.

you guys are comparing a purpose built sports car, say for example s15, skyline against a family sedan.

anyone thought of exotic V8's? not many high performance supercars are running 4 or 6 cylinders.

im not preaching V8's nor do i fancy them over my 180sx but credit where credit is due guys

thankyou
Mitch

Khudar Elhaouli (koo-dar el-who-lay) is a drifter in DA. He's got an ls1 in his S13. He's a wild driver, really entertaining. I think that's who red dragon is talking about.
