    2005 BMW 530i, similar to the image you see in my avatar. I also have a 1999 Dodge Ram 1500 Quad Cab that's in dire need of a new engine.

    You'll be driving that car for a long time before the wheels fall off. Those old school Maximas last forever (especially the engine).

    2004 Mercury Marauder
    It's Big, Black, and real Bad!!!

    It comes stock with 320 HP V8 DOHC "Cobra" motor, 3.55 Posi, true dual exhuast, all wrapped up in a Luxury trim with all the amenities....yummy!



    This is my daily ride which absolutely requires the ability to haul the entire family around, double as my "executive look" car for work, and scratch the very intense muscle car performance itch I have. It's the only car that foot the bill.

    Of course I've modded it

    13.5 PSI Eaton Supercharger (fully intercooled of course)
    Kooks headers and custom 2.5" exhaust
    FMS 4.10 gears
    Eaton 31 Spline differential
    Custom 31 Spline axles
    Shift kit





    Its all good for 500+ HP and 12.1 Qtr mile times @ 114. Of course its refined enough that you can drink tea in it while you drive and not spill a drop on the leather. She's a daily driver in good weather. An F-150 covers me in the bad stuff.

    Sweet Marauder. There are several coppers in my division that drive the same car, though not as suped up as your ride. 12.1 for a "family car" is insane. Are you running stock internals in the block, or have you bullet-proofed your bottom end to handle the PSI?

    Right now the short block is stock and the heads/cams untouched. Although I'm getting to the edge reliability wise, with the right tune, these modular motors can make some serious power. The weak link in these motors is the pistons which can lose a ring landing under duress. The key is to have a safe enough tune to prevent detonation (pre ignition). If you can do that, you can run about 500hp safely.

    If or when the motor goes, I'll be ready. You play you pay when you get heavy mods.

    What's killer about the car is the docile nature if you can keep your foot out of it. Here's a few more good shots:

    Do you have any dyno graphs? Other than the shift kit, has your tranny been modified in any way? I'm really liking your ride, man. We can go at this all day since I'm a Ford guy. I used to have a '66 Mustang with a K-Code 289 that put out 450hp @ 6,000RPM and almost 750hp when I hit the switch for the bottle. I had major traction problems with that car since my frame was factory stock. I had some ladder bars, but that wasn't a big help.

    Here's a dyno shot:


    HP and TQ are at the rear wheel on the chassis dyno. Actual numbers at the block are roughly 15% higher. Also, the dyno shot is with 91 octane pump gas. When I run 103 Octane race gas, you can add another 40hp and 30tq to the numbers. I have a flip switch in the car that bumps the tune aggressively when I run race gas

    What's really great about the power production on this set up is the awesome TQ. Over 400 ft lbs from 3300 to 5500. That's enough to snap your head off and drop it in the back seat from a 30mph roll

    The tranny is stock aside from the shift kit. The shift kit just firms up the 1-2 shift for more durability at WOT shifts.

    Other mods include a Pro-M 80mm mass air meter, upgraded fuel system to support the blower, a full set of autometer guage pods in the :banana::banana::banana::banana:pit, widened factory rear rims (to except the Nitto Drag Radials), and a few other bits.

    Cheers to another Ford man Sounds like your 66 was areal bad azz!

    New Pontiac GTO?

    I think they could have done better... The front fascia looks good, but I hate the back... the 05 is an improvement, but all in all it could be way better.

    I think the problem is its an American Muscle car NOT designed by American engineers.
