Sure, I want to buy a turbo kit for the Torino LOLConfusedGeek
 
I saw this and had to share the comedy.
Looks like someone elected to do a whole sale clearance on all the crap the fast and the not so furious crowd didn't want to stick on their 1600 hp honda civic...

Hah, I saw this too. If I had a small block, and low enough compression, I know I'd be tempted.

haha I think it'd split down teh center in typical 302 fashion. They tend to do that at 400-450 HP anyway..
 
Andy, nah I'm set thanks.
