Ive had lots of good kills, mostly Hondas and Acura civics(integras), but I was impressed to beat a Taurus SHO about a month ago. We jumped off the lights on the highway near where I go to school - the SHO was dead even with me until I hit 3rd at about 100kmh. Then I just pulled on it - by the time the speedo read 150 the Taurus was about 3 car lengths behind. I read on the net those cars boast 225 bhp. MY car is an 82 with minor mods - K&N drop in, 3' ram air, 2.5inch exhaust, no cat, single chamber muffler, AC pulled out and a bit of weight reduction. I really wonder about these american HP claims.
