    Yea man, those Bimmer 8's are nothing to mess with. My friend at school has a '01 S500, not even the AMG package, and that 5.0 would whoop my car with the mods I have. S/C's not in yet!

    Well my future boost involves a little different approach. I will be having the Squires Turbo System, remote turbo and an egine done by a local Houston shop. I hope and pray that I get see one those guys on the street so he can get a little beat down.
    PS the forged motor and the STS should be installed for less than 7k

    Pray for an AMG then. He'll be pissed he spent $90k when you spent less than $30k on it. AMG's are no joke though. Ever seen the Renntech one's? I have Wes to thank for showing me videos of those, those are pretty much what Dinan is to BMW.

    [QUOTEYea man, those Bimmer 8's are nothing to mess with.

    If I'm not terribly mistaken, a 750 is a V12. Having your ass handed to you by a car sporting 4 more cylinders, and an extra $70K on the sticker ain't so bad.

    Although, it would've been much more fun had it gone the other way!

    You're kidding us right? You're getting a forged motor built and a custom STS turbo system and installation labor all for under $7000?
    Is someone being very generous with you? Which one of the 3 things above you're getting for free?
    Care to give us a cost break down? If that $7K is for real, there might be a line forming!

    I'm also getting the "Reality Bites" lesson of Marauder ownership. My captains at work have a SRT Magnum, a BMW 750something, and a Charger SRT respectively. I show up, bragging about my MM...and get thumped hard. Also got thumped on the street by a Neon SRT, and barely stayed even with a new Cobalt SS. Those two REALLY hurt. I now understand why our car never sold in greater numbers....stock version sucks, especially when the retail price was as high as it was. I paid 24.5k for mine with 9000 on the odo, so I didn't get any bargain. Add 4k for shipping/taxes/duties to get it into Canada, and I'm thinking an SRT, or even an RT would've been the way to go. Maybe I'm expecting too much for 0-60 stuff. I only want to know that if I'm trundling along at 40mph, I shouldn't have to worry about passing or even keeping up with RTs at least. Since I have no mods (owned the car 5 weeks now) I guess I expected too much.

    You need 4.10's and a tune right off the bat to even the odds off the line...more $$$ At 40 mph the story becomes very different as these motors truly shine in the mid and higher rpm's...

    I would just change the last sentence for " I guess I was expecting too much !". One or two mods will wake up the car as they are responding very well and are really a gift to modders from Ford.

    I ordered an Xcal2 from Alt Auto already, but I have to pick it up at a friend's place in Oregon. (Lidio doesn't ship to Canada) After speaking with Lidio at length, we nixed the idea of 4.10s, since I'm getting a Trilogy when the car loan is paid off in June or July. He said traction becomes a fairly big problem with that combo. I personally don't like the look of the widened rims w/Nittos, it takes away the whole "sleeper" idea for me, and I'd need those to combat traction loss. I also ordered a K&N CAI which is also waiting down in Oregon.
