The race spec ones look like absolute beasts.
Except for the corvete and viper around the Nurburgring... And the new Boss 302 Mustang beats and M3 around the Laguna Seca. American cars are finally out handling their Euro counterparts. And the Cobalt SS holds some record too for it's class. The only car that beat it was a limited production run model designed only to beat the Cobalt SS.
Cabbs, an LS powered Miata, I would LOVE one of those. I don't think I would fit in the car though.
Dark Seeker, I don't think it has much turbo lag. As long as the compressor maps line up right and all, it won't have much lag. If you choose the wrong turbo it might though. That Supra engine in the 67 Mustang is making 600hp.
I know a guy who bought a turbo off a 12L cummins and put it on a stock 302 Mustang. Made 500hp, lag wasn't bad, and it was CHEAP ($50 turbo, all that's left is fuel and suspension).
