OK Scott now you have me curious, You say that you have a near stock 2.3, 
but me being a newby on the list I don'tknow what drive train you have, 
such as trany, rearend, gears, and how much does that pinto weigh? I find 
lifting the front tire to be VERY impressive mostly because it looks 
cool. And a 12 sec run is great! Now what am I going to have to do to get my 
SVO to do that.... Hmmm
	BTW- you should put your car specs on your web page also.
