The r33 gt-r has like 280hp stock, Stock block can handle over 700hp.
300zx has 300hp stock. Can handle 600hp stock block
Rx7 have about 240hp stock. Skys the limit with the rotary way more variables.
supra has 320 hp stock. Stock block can handle 1000hp.
240z has like what 120hp stock. rb26 is the same engine as the r32 gtr
The new GTR has 480hp stock. Limits havnt been found yet.

all these cars are serious, just because they make radio controlled cars out of them doesnt mean anything about performance? Maybe its because there more popular now then your dinasoar cars with the new generation of people?
:rolleyes: :laugh: with the new generation of people? dude Im 22. ask yourself if those cars will be cherished and sough after in 35 years...haha many of them arent sough after now. I realize many kids think the newer cars are the way to go and are so cool...but theyre a joke to the performance world. 500 hp should not require 25 lbs of boost for christ sake. I have an appreciation for the newer technology believe me. Just fired up the engine in our 53' GMC truck for the first time last weekend, engines a 5.3L LS which is the same family as LS1 LS2 LS7 etc. efi, crank trigger ignition, all that. in a 1953 truck. I realize the possibilities, limits, and drawbacks of all the newer sh!t, and I wont be moving over to the ricer crowd anytime soon....;)

I'm 15 and I honestly think these modern foreign cars that people think should be fast are the biggest piles of sh*t in the world. If you get a foreign car and just use it as a car to get you from point A to point B and get good mileage doing that then I have no problem at all. It's when you try make the car something it isn't, like a high-performance speed machine that I think is retarded. I would much rather prefer a high-horsepower muscle car from the 60's or early 70's.

Not sought after? Then why do supras cost more now then new? My Z was on car and drivers 10 best cars every year it was out. 500hp require 25lbs of boost cause we dont have engines that are 600 million liters. And that engine that you put in is from a NEWER truck. It always takes chevy and other american car companys to catch up in the technoligie department. Not that they cant do it, it just seems like they stick to the basics.

You think muscle cars are high perfomance speed machines? Maybe in a straight line with some work. Try turning. I dont wanna drive something from 1970 that weighs 4000lbs and needs 350ci to show how big my wiener is. Im done argueing on here. If you were a true car enthusits you would have respect for all types.

Giggity :) these conversations make me laugh! of course the engine we used is from a newer truck, thats the reason I pointed it out. To show you I know what the new stuffs all about too... I can build 500 hp for 4 grand... can you? From scratch...

ya i bet.. because rotAry engines are so common and parts are so cheap for them...? to purchase a good foundation to start would be nearly 3 grand... but this is starting to get childish. bottom line is in 30 years your cars will be unappreciated by most everyone and muscle cars will still be cherished by people of all ages. oh, and able to blow your doors off for 1/8 of the investment :)

Put it this way, the last appt he had at the mayo (no longer doing chemo... its in his brain and theres no point) they gave him 2 months... the 2 month mark was just over 2 weeks ago. :( pretty damn depressing. cuz its showing...hes really going downhill and things are really tough around their house. im there 4 days a week spending time with him in the garage when hes feeling up to it. ya...not so good...

i could purchase a good used T2 for under a grand. You obviously dont know anything. I also have a 1986 rx7. Thats what 24 years old? Still desinging new aftermarket parts for it and people doing new stuff to them everyday. Same with my Z. If you would get your head out of your muscle car world you Would relize that these cars have a huge culture and hugely appriciated. What if i would of put a lamborghini or ferrari on there? Those are imports so i guess there junk too. I have alot of respect for ls1 camaros and even some 'stangs.

Im done trying to agrue with your thick head. People like diffrent stuff. Lets relate it to snowmobiles....i have yamaha so i gotta ricer sled i guess? Polairs is american so its gotta be the best right?.
