    modded STIs could be a problem, but i pulled one(assuming it was stock) from a roll, AND from a dig in my girls WS6. Only mods are a lid, and Loudmouth.

    I can tell you one thing.. It is very hard to beat a H/C LS1 on the spray. NOt everyone can do it right. I saw that video of that so called LS1 with a 100 shot. Looked more like a 50 shot.

    Dont get me wrong. 03/04 Cobras have so much potential, but unless you are spraying as well. You will have a tough time beating a H/C LS1/LS6 on the juice.

    Fear this. Anything with a turbo, and automatic and a tire can be dangerous on the street.

    i fear an rx-7 2nd or 3rd generation with a 3 rotor motor turbo
    not even the porsche gt2 can beat a car like that, how do i know, my friend has a black 3rd gen 3rotor with a t66 turbo and he walk me about 7 cars from a 60mph role on the florida turnpike. (car has about 700+ hp at the rear wheels and it only weights 2900 lbs, power to weight, street legal everyday driven rx-7)

    Re: nitrous ls1/ls6

    Forged internals does not garuantee you longevity. But, a good tune will. Besides, a mild bolton a4 LS1 with a 150 shot is a 11.0-11.2 car on drag radials. So, it will take more than just a pulley swap to hang.

    Yeah:??: I can tell you really know what your talking about. Why don't you spew some more of your vast rotary knowledge? Did you mean a blown apex seal? A dented face on the rotor?

    Actually that lingo "blown rotor" is correct.
