A while ago i was hanging around with my mates in Sunshine and i saw a white EA with Twin Turbo and this thing was a monster.
It was going slow and as soon as he put his foot down the car was long gone. This thing would've pulled 11's easy:cool:

Nice EA!:cool:
I've got a right up of it in the '92 Car Australia mag. Of it's titts, and by the sound of it even crazier now.
Say's in the article that at the time it done the World record caravan run at Mangalore airstrip.Top speed then was 204, so they've upped the antie now. Also had a ZF 6 speed out of a VN Group A Commode.
Animal House it was called.:D
