Of course, it TAKES a professional to do anything worthwhile in an Interceptor (Vic). Horribly underpowered and a sketchy handler at best...
Yup, but the 2003 Panthers had quite a few improvements over the 02's, boxed frame, different shock location, rack & pinion (vs recip ball) and some other stuff I forgot while researching a Marauder before buying my Q.
I thought: "Geez, it's going to take a minimum of an aftercooled Vortech, gears, converter & other stuff to make this thing what it should have been, plus it's a hyperpathetic piston, higher compression setup to begin with.......I'll pass for now, pick one up in a couple of years & do the 03 Cobra swap myself."
I heard through the grapevine there's going to be a 04 or 05 Super Marauder is coming with the 03 Cobra mill? :ylsuper
PHP has one that was converted from the alum block 4v non s/c to the iron block forged internal 4v s/c that I *think* has run a best of 12.2's I believe???
No relevant snow info here, other than the HELL winter 93-94 I spent in Roanoke, VA in a brand new black on black Mark VIII. Wooohooo!
Q45Tech is spot on, FWD is more forgiving for those with little experience.
