Next step is upgrading the turbos, fuel system and intercoolers. That
should get me about 420hp and a bit over 400 ft/lbs of torque (at the
rear wheels). That's pretty close to what you'd get from a recent
vintage viper.....cept you've got AWD. 8-) You've now got a "family
sedan" with lots of room, creature comforts, that can run low 12's with

I'm still looking for a way to utilize my 428cj engine that I took out
