The Lamborghini Diablo is okay. I like the Muira, Gallardo and Murcielago.

I tend to like Ferrari's more. The Enzo, 612 Scaglietti, Dino, 599 GTB Fiorano and F430 are among my favorites.

Haha, you never know. My dad found a 1993 BMW 325i in Metallic Grey and great condition. Cost a little more than $4,000.

You'll spend like $300 for maybe 5-15 on imports usually, depending on factors such as engine size, etc. The Z rocks, though.

Anyway, my dream car... Lotus Exige. Look it up, it's fantastic. They just came out with a track-only 240hp supercharged one too (drool). But I'd like to be able to take it to the streets, so I probably wouldn't get that one even if I could. ...Unless I could get both, of course.
True a tornado wont give you 20-30 hp but it can give you better gas mileage and about 5-10 hp. When my bro instaled in his f-150 he went from 14 mpg to 17 mpg in town and about a 5 mpg jump on the highway. Which is great for any v-6 midsized truck. But that is with a truck, who the hell knows what it will do in lets say a honda or nissan tuner.

Hey, Wolf, is the F-150 carbeurated? If not it was probably just a coincidence, the physics of the things don't make sense at all on fuel injected vehicles. "Swirling the air" has absolutely no effect since the air mixes in the combustion chamber directly on EFI vehicles. On carbeurated cars, the gas actually mixes in the manifold, so I can see that maybe giving a little increase. But with EFI all you're doing by buying one of those is impeding airflow through the intake, and that's a loss of power.
The thing that isn't a coincidence is you never see any dyno sheets to go along with this stuff, people just believe it. Until I see a legit dyno sheet and know that a car is making more power/gas burned I refuse to give those companies money. The old butt dyno is nice and all but not very accurate.

This is a Bugatti Veyron. Its got 4 turbos and it has a max speed of around 250mph. 0-60 in around 2.3 sec. It has a W16 engine pushing 1001HP STOCK. And yes...there are upgrades to these motors. I saw a Bugatti with the 4th turbo being the size of ones that belong on semi trucks.....yeah.....top speed of almost 300mph. All for the "REASONABLE" price of around $1.5 million.

Another one for me, Cossie Ford RS200. It's not very well known over here in the states since it was a rally car, but supposedly the Evo version of the car was 0-60 in 2.1.
