@Ice Age Yes! Remember the one Jackie Chan drove in Cannon Ball Run 2?

@88blkiroc Arguments to be made for both, but I think for John it was easy an choice to take the reliability of a V8 over the "wow" factor of a turbo build. Then again it's not like the car is lacking any wow factor even with the V8 :)

@DaveT Me too! Now that John has moved to the West Coast I greatly enjoy seeing it at various events.

@mathiasdanang Yeah it's easy to tell he's a designer by trade, isn't it?

@Porthos1984 He's considered that, but from what I've heard he likes the idea of staying NA. Less heat, less moving parts, more room in the bay etc.

@Jagdroach I actually forgot to ask John about that, but I'm guessing it has something to do with the car being used both on the street and on the track.

@MyLifeAsLouis Yeah it all depends on the exact spec. They can range anywhere from race ready crate motors to basic truck motors that can be had for cheap.

@Smiggins To some maybe, but I think most people can see beyond an engine brand. There's a lot more to this car than a simple V8 swap :)

@Corey K You may be right sir.

@Popcorn22 Yeah I like the way John's waited until now to up the power beyond stock LS1 levels, waiting for the car to truly need it.

@SeanStott @Coca Scola Yeah I've been there plenty of times and I don't recall ever seeing anyone do anything too crazy. If they do, they are usually dealt with pretty quickly.

@miksfield Had some of those way back but I can't remember what happened to them. Damn.

@Spaghetti Yeah you basically go to Yamate station and then either walk or cab. I'd probably cab just to be safe. Getting back is easier as you can just hop on one of the many buses heading to Yokohama Station.

@Josh M You can get SH ones in the store of course, but actually I didn't buy a single one of these online. Usually easier to find them at events and meets.

@Floz It's actually a shop in Nagoya. I got that back in '06 so I'm not even sure if it's around anymore. Will have to check into it the next time I'm there. And yes it's hard to stick them on something, especially when you go through cars as fast as I do haha.
