OK, well "drive" might not be the best way to describe what I got to do today, since I never got over 5 mph. My buddy that owns a stereo shop noticed me drooling over it, so he asked me if I wanted to pull it into the service bay so they could install a 9500ci in it. So anyhow, I "drove" it about 50ft as I backed it out from where it was parked and slowly pulled it into the service bay, but whatever, in my mind I "drove" it and IT WAS AWESOME! :o

This is all I have to say:

Corvette zr1 = $120,000 750hp

Nissan GTR = $84,000 Switzer P800 Kit $19,000 = $103,000 800hp

or you can order the E900 kit made to run E86 fuel for $40,000 so that is $84K plus $40K = $124K for a 900hp car, for the same price of a zr1.

and this kind of performance

Actually, yes. I came back later in the day and they asked me about the radar antenna installation. There was no good place to install the radar antenna without either having it stick way, way out, like three inches or cutting the grille. So, they mounted it behind the front bumper cover, which is neither straight, nor flat. I told them they should advise the customer that he has to choose between reduced radar detector performance, or cut the front grille for maximum performance. I didn't even look at the interior work because this shop always does an excellent job with that type of stuff.

You can throw a bunch of money at any car and make it faster.

There was some video of a volvo S40 T5 tuned up and messing with what I think was a murcielago on some road, 400HP that thing had I think. Insane.

Cat4 has a ci on his vette. Dunno if the fronts are the same and I imagine he cut his grille.

I was working at a high-end car stereo shop while in college. (mid 90's, Vipers were still pretty "new" then) They used a viper as one of their show cars and I got to drive it around the parking lot quite a bit.

I understand your excitement. Congratulations!

Correct and the ZR1 can be bought for way less than $120,000. A maxed out ZR1 can be had for a little over 100K nowadays!
