    WOW when was that? 1.27 a gallon???? well for us 1.47 but still!!

    Heh heh - probably sometime in the spring of 2003. How I wish gas was that cheap again! When I'm not driving the Legacy I have a 2003 Ram w/ the Hemi and it gets under 10 mpg in town the way I drive.

    What's funny is everyone that was too cheap to pay for premium then would think nothing of those prices now.

    Either way, you couldn't pay me enough to work under that hood. If it ain't up top, you can forget reaching it!
    Both the 3000GT/Stealth and the 300ZX are a ***** to work on. But I agree, the Z is worse.

    The first mod they do is remove the sequential spool.. and the 300 can boost almost as far as the supra turbos, it just does it much more reliably. Ill take that over a few HP up top..

    My brother's was an auto and it would have been almost unbearable in true twin mode with the stock trans setup. When he went single, he also put in an SP transmission and Precision torque converter which would have made "true twin" much more livable. That's the same reason he went with the SP57 turbo - small but very good response and drivability. 120 mph traps on pump still isn't anything to sneeze at; it's just not the best for dyno bragging rights.

    Now that the Supra is sold I still tell him to grab a LGT and see what he can do with it.
