There is an upgrade from Roush that brings it up to 379 hp and 380 torque for under $1K I might consider but believe me, its plenty fast enough as is. Here are the terms of the deal that I posted in the off topic section: He agreed to pay off my $16K that I owe on the Evo, drop the price of the Stang to $35K and then give me $8K as trade in for the Evo towards the Stang dropping it to $27K. I got a 6 year deal at $4500 a year meaning my payments are going to be about $370 a month. That sure sounded alot better then my over $600 a month payments for the Evo.
    that may sound better now.... but you do realize that the roush is being paid on for 6 years!!!! so in 5 years you will have an 8 year old mustang you are still paying on!

    although your evo payments are more, they also were only for 3 years... price your evo at 6 year payments and it would have been about $70 less a month than the roush.
    just saying.... i am not sure you made the best decision here... although its a nice car and all.... I am not sure its literally "worth the money"...

    but if you are happy, thats all that matters

    Thanks DTR. As I mentioned before, the desert heat just kills turbochargers which really led me to get rid of it. It was 116 today and my friend told me it felt like his STi was stuck in the mud. He only drove about 30 miles and when he checked under the hood, he said the turbo was literally glowing red. My car ran just fine in the heat, a little hotter then usual but still far from the H.
