Needless to say he was cryin after the race when the Camaro guy was talking shit and told him to take his sticker off. These 4-banger turbo guys forget you need torque also, not just hp.
    this seems a little askew to me.....more hp than a v8? what v8? a 4.6L crown vic maby. or a 265 1955 chevy. but in 05 what v8? what a ricer. they think because they got a turbo that they are hot shit. well i got hot shit for you. it comes in 2 pairs of 4, under the hood of a Z28. and it sucks turbos in through the SLP lid and spits it out the Loudmouth.

    its just like any 4 banger, it makes power at low speed, high RPM but when the wheels catch up with the engine, it cant put anymore power to the wheels. its like a bike when your moving slow its easy to accelerate but when your really cooking, you run out of umph to make it acclerate. 4 bangers are useless for anything over 80 mph.....just like a million hp is worthless without torque. thats typical of a 4 banger, "gobs" of power with miniscule torque.
