    You talking about Brennan's Quote? 'Cause if you are,your "certified" pups need to study their HISTORY. If you're talking about the second one,there is a tempered truth there which fits in well with most council meetings regarding our funding. T.C.

    No, but the quote is in regards to people criticizing other people's procedures and how they'd never place themselves in a situation where that choice of procedure would ever have to be made, which fits bull's statement quite well.

    This is the last I'll speak of it, he's been absent for some days and it's been very enjoyable.

    Kenner (right outside of new orleans, where the shop is located) Police, 0-100 in 7 flat. Since then I heard a dual stage CO2 pushed nitrous system was installed, so probably 0-100 in 5 if it can hook up.

    You mean they have training on what excuses to give to avoid doing one's job?

    There's really not much tuning I'd have to worry about from any n/a domestic car. (and 90% of imports, to be honest)


    Edit: i almost forgot, we aren't speaking about a 5.0 coyote are we?

    Sure, there are sleepers of every make and model, 11 second honda civics, 32 second prius (pruii, priuses..?) even a 9.5 second datsun. It's just I've been around cars long enough to know that truly fast cars can't hide behind quiet exhaust and street tires.

    I stand by my comment, I'm not worried about 12-15 second mustangs, they're a dime a dozen. If it's n/a, its no sleeper. If it's FI, then I'd worry its in the upper 10%. If it's a coyote, you have my attention. If its just a v6 or a 1995-2010 gt, pft....

    None of those mustangs go any faster than my car in gridlock traffic.

    I guess you can go pft.. it s a 4.6 liter V8 with a cold air induction and a custom performance tune for premium fuel... next on the mod agenda is upgrading the exhaust system; either Magnaflow, Borla or Corsa.

    By the way, it is a stealth car.. that blower out of hood of your Challenger is a cop magnet... if they don't see it , they certainly can hear it when it spools up!

    IronValor.. there was no gun metal gray in the 2006 Mustang color pallette. There was silver, tungsten gray, redfire, windveil blue, sonic blue, performance white and screaming yellow. Your 'Stang is probably tungsten gray, unless it has custom paintwork I love how the color subtly change depending on how rhe sunlight hits it.

    PS: I am inviting you to join the Silver Mustang Registry (www.silvermustangs.com) and the Grey Mustang Registry(www.greymustangs.com)... tell them "DaGonz" gave you the referral!

    Actually the pile of work I'll find on my desk Monday morning should teach me not to take time off.
