My 06 Mitsubishi Evo IX SE. Had 44k miles when I sold it in 2013. Made 392whp/421trq on a heartbreaker Mustang dyno. Would have made closer to 450 on a dynojet. Trapped 119mph in the 1/4. Sold it to so I could free up some money for a move and ive been kicking myself for selling it ever since.

I have a couple to add.
My 1977 Honda 550K. No not the super sport. (sissy bike) Several sneaky modifications, would out run any 750 to about 90, then they had enough power to finally get by me. I did more things on that bike then I can legally talk about! What a blast!
1971 Mach1 Mustang, pulled stock 2 barrel 351C, and dropped in a 500hp 351C. (found a junkie that needed a fix, gave $200.00 for $2500.00 worth of motor, in 1979 money) Now we're talking. Better have it pointed in a straight line when you nailed it. Otherwise you were going in circles.
70 Maverick shoehorned a 351w between the shock towers and went Camaro Killin!!! My buddy Steve built 4 different engines for his 78 Camaro, including a 400sb. And he never did outrun the Maverick. Drove it as daily transportation for 6 years. Tough little car.
My Vega's, I only had 9, of the dang things! My 1st Vega was the first "legal" vehicle I ever owned. I blew up the first motor. and learned how to hot rod a Vega! There were several "special" parts, when all put together. you ended up with about 150 Hp.With a 3:89 gear in the rearend, and a 4 speed in a 2200lb car, it was pretty impressive. Plus they were cheap. The most I ever gave for one was $300.00 (the first one), I gave $50 for 2 or 3 of them, $75 for another and $35 for one, and even had 2 given to me, so you can see how I ended up with 9, I only licensed 3 of them. The others were to keep the legal ones going! Man I had Fun!
