I've seen women in anything from R8's to Maserati gran turismos. As long as I will kick any stock S5's ass I'm good!

I'm sure 300/300 in a little MR2 is a blast!
Cool, I've just seen so many people on car forums talking HP numbers that were completely out to lunch!

Some dyno's read higher than others, and it also depends on if that was raw or corrected. If it was corrected you might have been helped to a higher figure.

Either way it's not THAT important.

Yeah my goal for the MR2 was 300 at the rear wheels. I had a disco potato (GT2860RS) turbo, AEM standalone EFI, custom intake manifold, A2W intercooler, etc. etc. etc. but for some reason on the dyno day she wouldn't go beyond 18.5 PSI. I should post my dyno graph here because normally the 3S-GTE will have a very flat torque curve and HP keeps climbing, but my torque was peaking around 4000 RPM and dropping quickly after that. Could have been cams but I think there was another limiting factor somewhere.

I'm a light car nut, my current ride is a '77 Toyota Celica. Thing weighs 2500 lb or so from the factory and I've got tons stripped out of it. Still deciding on what engine to go with, but with even 300 RWHP in a 2200 lb car I'll be laughing!

I had my car dyno'd by 3zero3 and MAC auto sport here in Denver and the average was 419.4 WHP.

I'd be in a MTM tuned RS6 Avant if that car was state side. Something like 700 HP in an avant. I would not be able to pass it up.

Looking at trading my SUV in for a Subaru VX Crosstrek. I know they are rather new, but does anyone have any experience with one? I like the fact it is AWD and gets good gas mileage.

2010 Chevy silverado crew cab with a topper. fantastic snowboarding/outdoor adventure vehicle. tons of room inside, tons of storage in the back and never shall the twain meet lol.

not the greatest on gas but not horrible either. I get about 21mpg usually. never stuck, never worried about it, never have gear packed in so tight i can't fit people in the truck.

If I didn't live in San Francsico I'd probably have a 4 door JK turned into a truck

I am actually hoping to switch it to a taco in the near future.....I have twin 2 year old boys and hopefully another on the way so the truck as our only vehicle wont cut it. so may be down sizing to a taco and then some other sort of multiple passenger vehicle...i dread speaking the words mini van.....
