My new car!! Bye Bye Civic

Well i finally got tired of absolutly NO POWER AND TORQUE, which lead me to my 98 T/A. I loved the gas milage of my vic but thats all it was good for.







Ive had it for about to weeks, and this car owns 95% of anything on the street. I went heard to head aginst the new charger SRT-8 and he never pulled on me, it was neck and neck, not bad considering it pumps out 425 and im only at 300 stock. Ill try to get some more pics.

What u guys think?

Nice upgrade, you plan on doing anything to it? The wheel gap is like huge and the wheels look so tiny.

i got rid of one to get a civic lol same year and all looked just like yours red and all just didnt have t-tops. GAS SUCKS. speacially cause you wanna floor it all of the time. when you do the fornt end yanks up hard too but i like my vic better. and your flip up lights will need to be adjusted every hmmmmmm 20 seconds after 100,000k actually alot needs to be adjusted every 20 seconds after 100,000k even if you drive it normal, but its domestic so yeah. but i loved the leather interior though. looks clean as hell too, you would be surprised at how much @ss you will pull with that. just take US 40 through Indiana and you will bang tons of chicks lol i know cause i used to live there hahahahaha

Thanx guys!! Yea its a 5.7 ls1 v8, And i know the gaps are horriable lol. There 18's so i just got ta drop it and it should look better. I would like to do a cam swap in the near future but i have to save up for other things first. These cars are notorious for snaping the rears so im goin ta do a 9". But other than that just cat back is all thats done to it.

I didnt make to much of a drop in MPG's. I use to get bout 34 or so now i get bout 19-21 on the city, if i go on the highway i should get 26-28, mostly cause of the 6th gear. But not bad considering I almost tripled my hp.

A lot of my friends have those (and camaros/mustangs alike) so naturally I get a lot of **** since I have the 4cyl, even though I whoop their asses But yeah, I have a lot of respect for the car and are definatly fun to drive...not in turns though, ha. And you cannot beat the power you can get with simple mods.

Danm man, What u got in the vic to beat the almighty LS1 lol. I know its very easy to make some 4cly power, its just expensive lol. I think i saw a while back a vic that had a k20 turboed and ran like an 11.5, thats impressive. I have respect for all cars it sont matter what they are.

Lol its funny cause im willing to make that bet with you. Everone allways has that assumption that American cars are pieces of crap. The board im on right now ls1tech.com has at least 1 menber that i know of that has 205,000 miles on his z28. And there are Thousands that have well over 100,000 on them. The LS1 + t-56 is one of, if not the most efficient combo ever for a v8 car. thats right i said EVER!! What other V8 gets 21 city, and 28 highway MPG and can still go to the track and run a 12? lol I will admit that i might have a couple supid little **** to fix on it, but nothing i havent had with my honda.

Its alright, theres always a few that for some reason hate american muscle. Maybe its because while you trying to squeeze as much boost as you can out of you car, ive done a head and cam swap and am still faster and still N/A. Just remember Real cars dont power the front wheels, They lift em.
