Description
It is a fairly fast car 0-60 in 7 seconds. but it's main problem is that the MAF sensor isn't a flow through design but instead the air has to move a plate in order to get air into the engine. Not to mention The GT model was not designed with Fuel Economy in mind because the engine cant build up any real torque until about 2300 RPM. My dad put the worst rolling resistance tires on it too which doesn't help, they are Kumho touring a/s 795's
Modifications
Polyurethane suspension bushings. Tires overinflated to 38 PSI
Planned Modifications
maybe the MAF to an Explorer or something with a straight through design, grill block and maybe different tires.
