You really do like gas effecient cars Nexus heh? Yeah, but your car is worth more then a 02 boxster, not any other porshe...No offense but almost any luxary 05 is worth more then a 02...So its no big deal, considering thats the lowest class, and more of the "hey I cn get a porshe, so let me get the cheapest sukiest one, that is cheap, and I can offord"...Now the big dogs, like the 911, sorry your f150 wouldnt compete...Even if the 911 is from 02..Wait ur f150 is a 01, no way in hell its worth more then a 02 boxster

911..

Didn't go past the first page and can't see the pics cause i'm at work and the comps here don't display pics (thanks to myspace!).

What kind of car is it? Is it an escort? If you want to, you can turbo it to get some more power out of it, but don't expect to run a high boost. Another thing you can do if you have some extra loot and some free time on your hands, go to the junk yard, try and find a ranger with a 2.3L or a fox body mustang with a 2.3L 4 cyl and take it along with the trans (I don't know the specs for the tranny you have) than remove your old motor and install the 2.3. It's rated about the same HP as the one you have, but you can do a lot more with it.

Actually, is it a rear wheel drive escort, or one of the newer front wheel drive escorts? If it's rear, you can do this, otherwise, it's too much work.

Other than performance stuff, rims are nice, but don't go huge. Bigger rims will make your car accelerate slower. I would say try and stick with the stock size for rims and go no bigger than 16. Paint is always good, but only if you are gonna keep the car for a while. Audio work is great cause you can always un-install it and take it to your next car; Rims don't always work this way unless you get the same bolt pattern.

Interior, I dunno, you could probably get some racing seats, but, they'd probably look retarded. I will defend anyone's right to do what they want to their car, but at the same time, will be the first to tell you your car looks like poo.

HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! gas prices and V8! HAHAHAHA!!

Well, I'm planing to build a a 351 cubic inch (5.7L) V8 to throw in my 1966 stang and I'm probably going to take it out to 405 cubic inches (some where in that area) something around 6.5L. You want to talk about using a lot of gas?!! HAHA! there's one rule to live by when building/modding a car:

Fast, Cheap, Reliable: Pick 2.
