About “**rocket**”

3800 supercharged with a 2 inch pulley on it that is putting out 10.4 pounds of boost. It is putting 259 horse to the ground and it runs 9.4 in the 1/8.

About “Icebox”

I bought this car in June of 2008 with 114,7xx miles on it, and it was mostly stock. The only modifications to the car when I purchased it were the stainless catback (previous owner got sick of replacing rusty steel exhausts)and the struts. The car came with full documentation of repairs during its history, and a log of anything ever done to the car. This car is a rare color for a NG900, which is Sky Blue Metallic. I bought this car with the intent to modify it, and the fact that it came from the factory with a 2.0L turbocharged motor and a 5 spd only increased my interest in it. Turns out, not only is this car easy to make fast, but its extremely practical too!
