My car has 285HP and weights 3400lb...i'm not sure but i doubt most sporty cars are going to weight over 4000lb

200HP would be good for that car though, much better I would defiantly want the turbo version if I ever got a MR2

The MR2 is actually a mid-engined car. As long as the engine is placed in front or over the rear axle it's considered mid-engined. Rear-engine is where the motor is placed behind the rear axle, like a Porsche.

Toyota SW20 MR2 to be exact.

Hah, if you think that's bad, try working on a Porsche. They seriously crammed everything in that tiny little compartment. Gotta love German engineering...it can be a work of art and a pain in the damn ass at the same time.

Wow...that picture makes it look like the front rakes like hell. Either that or you parked it on an incline.

Porsche? Cool cars, but I couldn't imagine working on one.

Yes, that is a hill going to my garage.

Nah, the Neon already has a big enough butt. Increasing the rake would just make it look even bigger.

Heh, it is pretty big if you look at it from the side.

It's my grandpa's truck. It's a 90-93 Dodge Ram diesel 2WD. Makes 180HP and 400 lb. ft. of torque according to the valve cover lol. The drivetrain is in good condition, but the interior hasn't been maintained and the shocks are pretty much gone. Speedo recently stopped working too lol.

My dad has it because his F-250 diesel got totaled. It was sitting in front of our house when another truck hit it in the middle of the night and ran.
