Yes. I would love to see more of this car on here! Rumor is that it is faaaaaairly clean ;) I dream of having a shaved engine bay, but then I think about how much work is involved and quickly erase it from my brain. How about some horsepower or 1/4 mile numbers?

Oh the foci. The only car I've come across that has so many exterior mods you'd think there's no way people could assume its slow. But they do and boy are the wrong. Everytime I ride in it, it puts a silly grin on my face. Good work mike!

Oooh!
I'm not much of a ford guy, but that's impressive!

You won't be "F'd on race day", that's for sure!

Some people never have anything except ideas. Go do it.
Emissions & fuel economy haven't exactly been areas of strength for past rotary power plants, but absolutely no one with a soul has ever cared.

Mike > I think we need a plethora of pictures of your car for two reasons:

1) Your car is awesome.
2) You are great at taking pictures of it.

It sounds good too Ryan! It is quite possibly the cleanest focus on this planet. You wouldn't even believe it.

You will probably notice a little power increase with less restriction. Is it a law that you all need mufflers up there?
