Re: Shakers for trucks?
It does have nutz compared to his old 93 V6, something in the different design and slightly bigger motor makes it tremendously faster then the old one. And obviously it getting spanked by a Neon shows the Neon wasnt exactly stock. But it still sucks. The only way ide say it didnt suck is if the Neon had an 871equipped Blown Bigblock riding shotgun and sticking half out the roof of that pile of SH!T, because then it wouldnt seem so amazing that he got beat. I agree on getting rid of it if your looking for a powerhouse racecar (Why would someone build a neon to run 13s, when they could throw together an old Chevelle with a big block and run mid 11s for 1/2 the money or less) but he just wants more punch out of the Maro 6, to him its a sharp looking car, with decent insurance rates, fairly economical on gas and with a Z28 he'd probably be in jail every other weekend.
As far as saving money on getting rid of the 6, have you seen the rate at which value on these cars drop? He got lucky and sold the old one for $9,500 and it was loaded with about 23,000 on it,I could drive around all day and buy them off corners and used lots for about $6,000 in fair condition in thet year range. If he sold it for what they go for used around here he'd still owe 5-6 grand on the thing and its only about 6 months old and at maybe 1800 miles.
Im trying to get a price on the super charger, but I think the one for the 3.1 on the old car was like 2300 installed. Which is a pretty fair price for such a dramatic increase in the output of the 6 (your right its still no z28) but it would definately move out pretty good.
