    Tony Defeo!!!! I remember reading his NY street racing articles from the 80's
    1jz Rolla Van ....... 10.5 at 134mph

    "Reacher figured if he could put that drivetrain in some battered old sedan body, then that would be his kind of car"

    So is this still a thing? I just bought an AU for $100, a 5spd half cut for $250 and a Barra for $100. J3 to join it all $150 and I'll be in the 14's for $600.

    So if I get a 13 for $1300 in my AU I get the Performance Forums Niggerdick Ashtray of Glory? Or is there a current competition somewhere with other people competing?

    I mean I'm going to try anyway, going faster than a stock BA XR6t for $1300 + rwc/reg stuff is a noble goal. But if I'm *competing* it makes it that much more alluring.

    Nope. Becuase by "I've just bought" I really meant "I've arranged to swap for my $100 EF", and the swap hasn't happened yet.

    What I *do* have is a $200 Echo that's my daily ($150 for 315,000km 1.3 Echo with dead cylinder, plus $50 for 2ndhand coils, $200 total. Rest of the cost was legals, inspection, and air-con repair). I have a 2ndhand Haltech Interceptor (can't remember the cost, was ages ago) that I'm valuing at $100 because you can only tune it with ancient laptops. I also have an ancient turbo kit for a Camira that uses some old SAAB turbo, paid $100 for it because leaking exhaust oil seal. If I gut that turbo kit for its turbo, lines and manifold flanges that leaves me with $900 for turbo repair, 1.5 swap, injectors and a decent clutch...

    Nah who am I kidding, I'll just wait for this AU to happen.
