That's why Saab came up with 16v engines, people were complaining the 8v's were to fast so they had to tame the engine down

Via the magic of clever editing, viewers never saw the 14 gearbox changes required in the week that was filmed.



I'm waiting for the un-cut edition....

I don't understand the joy of continous tyre burning.

I prefer to make my horsepowers make the car go forward instead of spending money for new tyres all the time.

However you can't dispute that that is one strong T8. Probably got rid of the K-Jet, though. :-D

There's a 700bhp olvo somewhere that still uses K-jet , i think they just added a EFI/fuel rail ontop of the standard CIS.

I think someone on streetfire commented that due to problems with drivetrain the owner wanted to convert the T8 to RWD...

I think he used a dash display driven by megasquirt/megatune, i'm sure i heard there was a 4-sp'd box in the car at the moment, there's another clip of it doing a 1/4 mile, it's blooody fast (13 seconds is'nt too bad for a FWD!)
