T-Bone, I believe it is required in all states to have a cat to clean up emissions. The newer ones don't cost you as much power as the older ones did, not sure how "old" that might have been but you can always get a newer one if you think its robbing you of too much power.

My apologies. I shouldnt have bothered posting. I guess I'm just old fashioned because I cant stand the sound of a tuner "gettin' on it". They seriously sound like a Pee'd off bumblebee.

American Muscle > Ricers

That's true, but American Muscle is NOT better than imports. I'd really like to see someone with a Mustang GT or Dodge Charger try to beat a Subi WRX STi, Nissan 350Z, or Mitsubishi Evo X at the race track. Oh, and a correctly built import sounds just as good as an American V8. I hate you UNINTELLIGENT DONKEYes that assume that anything from Japan is a FWD 4 cylinder. And speaking of that, what's wrong with FWD 4-cylinders? Volkswagen Golf GTis and Honda Civic Type Rs are FWD 4-cylinders and will outperform just about any American car in the same price range at the autocross or at a tight track.

American cars are great for torque and drag racing, but they can't match the all-around performance of Japanese or European cars.

Congrats again. Obviously you didn't get it the first time. You don't like Ricer don't post. That includes editing your original post with more stupid comments.

Time for a vacation.

boy there is blanket statement for ya... unless you were referring to muscle cars thats a very clueless statement. for instance look at the Corvette Z06. you cant argue with Porche squishing (not all porches obviously, but any withing 30 grand of the Z06s price) times around the nurburgring.

and what is the problem with FWD 4 cylinders? 4 cylinders are great, a good one will revv and revv until the valves pop out and dance on the bonet as top gear put it. what about FWD, whats wrong with that? well is very simple, the power is going to the wrong wheels. asking those 2 front tires to brake, steer, grip, and put down all the power puts an inherent limit on handling and performance, usually in the form of numbed steering, oversteer, and torque steer. sure there are alot of things you can do to combat this effect, but ultimately any FWD car would be made alot better if it were RWD or AWD. ive seen it first hand, accually. ive driven VW GTis (one was chipped with a borla exhaust), and i own an Audi TT Quattro. under the skin they are essentially the same car, with the same suspention and engine, and similar weight. but the handling in the TT is lightyears better



so in conclusion, Audi>everything ;)

^I'm talking about American cars that compete with imports.

Besides that, GM rented out the "Ring to run the 7:43 (a.k.a. no traffic) and the Z06 still couldn't get close to the GT2's time. And don't associte price soley with performance. When you pay for a Porsche, it doesn't all go into the research and development department. It goes into the car's quality, including build quality, ride quality, luxury, and material. It's kind of like when you pay $25,000 for a Ducati even though it's not much faster than a $10,000 Japanese streetbike. The Z06 is a Chevy. It has the same plastic interior and poor ride quality that you would expect from a Chevrolet. You don't find that on a Porsche. If the Z06 was as well-built and luxurius as a GT2 andonly cost 1/2 as much, you wouldn't see all of the higher-class people driving Porsches. The Z06 is the best performance available for the money hands down, but it's not nearly the car that the Porsche is. It's not always about statistics and numerical figures.

EDIT: While we're on the subject, don't you think it's funny that the 3,800 lb. 480 horsepower GTR ran in only 3 seconds behind the 3,300 lb. 638 horsepower ZR1? We all know that the ZR1 will obliterate the GTR in any kind of straight line racing. I'm just pointing out how important the handling and ride characteristics really are.

i dont mind imports, but i dont like to see cars with the wing off a 747 on the trunk. and they might be quick but you just cant get alot of torque from a 4 banger. id rather dirve an american v8 than a 4banger anyday.
