1982 Datsun 280 ZX (Champagne): Needs minor cosmetic work but, still purrs like a kitten and likes to be driven hard. She's a keeper.

1997 BMW Z3 2.8 (Black on Black on Black): Top down cruising at the beach... ahhh... ouch! ahhh... ouch!

2002 Subaru WRX Wagon (Alpine White): Being a wagon, it's my nod to utilitarianism but, she's still packing heat where it counts.

The car I miss the most...

1992 Honda Prelude Si (I think it was called Glacier White): She had a few performance mods, MOMO IDEA rims on Dunlop rubber, an Alpine head and CD changer w/Alpine DSP, MB Quart Seperates w/Infiniti Kappa rears, JL 12" in enclosure, and a couple other interior whatzits... Traded her for the Z3 in '98, after I had driven my girlfriend's Z3 1.9. Something about that BMW just said, "drive me, throw me into that corner... harder."

With that WRX, have you thought about bumping up the boost?
I've seen some modded WRX's that are running some insane boost.

I would love to Even came up with my wish list, the usual fair of STi upgrades with plenty of after market pipes, chip, tires, suspension parts and calipers. Unfortunately, it remains a hobby in theory.

When I started the '92 Prelude project, I was working a good construction job, finishing high school and still living at home gratis. I continued to work different jobs and on the car through college. I added parts every chance I got. Since then, well, life throws curves and priorities change.

When they show up on my doorstep with that big cardboard check, it'll mean an HT refresh and some new toys for the Scuby Rex

All you need is reflash, downpipe and cat back exhaust (stage 2). I drive stage 2 wrx and it's pretty quick!

Hmmm.... Thanks for the heads up!

A few months from now, the question becomes, do I take advantage of the Subaru Guaranteed Trade in Program or juice the old girl up. I really like the bug eyed styling.

What do you think of the Stage 2 kit/mods?

I'd love to post my underhood shot, but i'm afraid that there is really nothing to look at. There is a big cover over the engine, and the sight under it isn't very pretty. I do love that Mobil 1 oil cap. My M1 oil cap is hidden under a cover which has to be removed to add oil. What happened to the old days with cars like the Taurus SHO when engines were beautiful enough to put in the Louvre? The intake manifolds on the Taurus SHO alone are a work of art.

Probably happens anytime Yamaha puts an engine in an automobile. Like, not very often.

My understanding is that Yamaha is making the new 4.0 litre v8's in the new Volvo's, but there isn't much to look at there either. We of course remember how disastrous their 3.4 litre v8 was in the v8 SHO's of 96-99. What's worse is that those Taurus SHO owners were basically left hanging and had to come up with their own costly solution to fix a problem with it.

It's worth the money. I can guarantee that you will love it!
My set up is Cobb access port v1/helix catted dp/greddy evo2 catback. You can replace up-pipe for faster turbo spool as well.

Well, guess they don't want the appeal only for the performance driver. Volvo it seems, likes to keep performance at the 'sleeper' level.

I had a '91 Taurus once, not an SHO. But less than fond memories of the car overall. Nice design, poor implementation.
Certainly not enough to get me to spring for a SHO or any other Ford product.
Actually, my last Frod was a Mercury Villager. Picked it up cheap in fleet/lease sale.
Not very exciting, but quite reliable. (Nissan based of course..).

I remember the short run of the SHO V8. One case where scarcity did not increase value.
It was an interference engine if you lost the timing chain.
Talk about a recipe for disaster in an engine that did lose the cam sprocket on occasion

As I said, nice concept, poor implementation.
