    I had a friend who claimed that his early nineties Saturn SC had a V6 in it and that it could do 140 miles an hour. :\ He smoked a bit too much dope.

    You'd be surprised what people think their cars have. I knew one guy that swore up and down that his 1991 Grand Prix 4 door had a straight 6 in it...

    So which bank has the single camshaft?
    My roomate's Celebrity had a 6V8 according to him. This was like 15 years ago. That's right I said 6V8. I don't know either.

    Reminds me of the Volkswagon Golf Gti of the 80's and early 90's. The first of the Golf Gti's had a whopping 105 hp. Can you image the power? That's 105 German engineered driver's only horse power my friends. Wow 105 hp.....image the possibilities.

    My RX-7 has "only" 100hp and 101lb-ft, and in a real race... one with turns... it spanks the hell out of my 3000GT, which puts out 222hp and 210ft lbs.

    now, wait though, there's a bad aspect about this type of talking to...


    I met a guy, shortly after I bought my car and had done such little things as add a CAI, and a MSD coil pack to it (gapped the plugs at 0.064"), who said he wanted to race me in his completely horrible looking early 1980's era Ford Escort 2-door, and told me it would be for fun, and mainly for my enjoyment as to see how well my car had reacted to the two mods I had done, and to see how a "1.6L SOHC" escort engine compared to my 2.0L SPI coupled to an automatic, but he said that he had an auto too.. so him, a couple of friends who had introduced us to each other, and me went out a back country road far from both houeses and cops, plus it was a good 1/2 flat stretch of road...

    we line up, as a friend drives down 1/4 mile down to post as the "end point" for the run, and me being relatively new to cars is completely revved, I could just imagine how my car would womp all over this ugly little 'scort, and how I would begin to strive for having the fastest 'Scort in central WI, it was great (my little day dreams that I had before the race)...

    so my friend signals that he's ready, so my other friend goes in front of us in the middle to signal go...

    I should have been paying attention more, because I suddenly realized the little 1.6L scort had a very very strange shound coming from it, a sort of "Whistle" that grew louder as he revved his engine, and thats when I realized that I had made a major mistake...

    that whistle sound combined with his rapid arm movement in the car towards the center between the seats should have told me that I had been had, but it still just didn't hit me...

    my friend signals go...

    I mash the gas, still having dreams of my car rocketing away from him, and winning... thats when I heard the noise, and looked over... tires, spining, tire smoke, then his tail lights, I slammed the gas pedal down as far as she went, I began to pull just a little, his car seemed to pause, the rocket forward again, (he had let off the gas, as to get traction), the visions of me wining began to fade as I realize that this little 'scort was rocketing forward with such uncanny speed that it could not be a 1.6L, and an automatic at that too!

    by this time he was at least 5 to 6 car lengths ahead of me, and still pulling away... I had been had...

    after seeing him pull away from me so easily the rest of that 1/4 mile seemed to take forever to complete, as i found my self embarrassed beyond belief...

    the race was over, and the smell of burnt rubber filled the air as we returned to where we began, and as i got out of the car I saw the largest grin on this guys face...

    "Oh I forgot to tell ya, the car originally had a 1.6L, and still has the exhaust from a 1.6L, mainly the turbo and exhaust manifold..."

    I looked peered in to his engine bay after he popped the hood, and before my lay a weird hyrbid of sorts, a 1.6L turbo/1.9L HO hyrbid lay in a completely gutted car, complete with a 5-speed...

    all I could do is admire the car for being a massive sleeper, and look up at him and say "You F*cker..." with a grin...


    so sometimes if someone says that their 1.6L mid 80's scort will take ya, first make sure you see whats under the hood before getting a head as big as mine and having it popped by what I still believe to this day to one of the ultimate sleepers out there...

    nope, really strange, he doesn't like computers alot, so his ad and him pretty much put it together themselves, but his dad is a "Master Tech." at a local Ford garage, so I'm guessing he had pretty good idea on how to make it work...

    When all you have left of a car is the frame, engine and tranny cause the rest has rusted all out... a car would normally feel pretty fast!
