your 14.4 had a 2.2 60ft, I cant see why 3.7's and lsd cant get that to 2.0 or under. If you can make 1.9 60ft thats worth half a second at the end of the track alone, following the "thumb" rule of -.1 60ft = -.2 ET

the tune will wake up the 3v a lot, especially since you have the defillipo's etc on.

If you dont break into a 13.8 or 13.9 after diff, gears, and tune, I would be left scratching my head personally.

Hell yeah, I reckon it would look s**t hot with chromed/polished centre caps with those stockies and maybe a thin white wall on the tyres, but I guess a new set of rims would look good too :P

LOL got to agree and who would want a car that looks like a worn out US cop car, unless your name was Jake and Elwood.

Did anyone ever check out Crown Victoria's, the US would have been better off getting Ford Australia to design and build them here based off the B series LWB sedans.
