Super Fast 2000 Grand Marquis

Hello Everybody,
As you all know that have been keeping up with postings here at the forum I have recently bought a 2000 Mercury Grand Marquis from an old couple. This car now has 16,000 miles on it but I bought it with only 14,800 miles. I decided to do some very simple and basic mods; I have added K&N cold air intake, dual Flowmaster 40 Series pipes with a catback system and custom installed h system, and a Superchips upgrade tuned to 91 octane. These little mods have created a whole new beast. The car was originally an old person's car in every way, now this car breaths thunder. It roars!!! From a signal acceleration is tops and on the freeway from a steady 75 acceleration to 120 is simply awesome. Getting on the freeway from a deadstop this morning I went from 0 to 95 in a heartbeat. This car is just one bad ride. It is fun driving a full size Merc with a tuned V-8 as compared to a rice burner.

Rocky,

Sounds like my Marauder. It is a great driving car with all the power you need. (Some people supercharge theirs for even more power.)
