Wow this is fantastic! I'm sure I am not alone in saying that a rally-prepped 99 is one of the sexiest cars ever made. They are soooo awesome. Also, I remember in some video Erik Carlsson talking about one and he said it had something like 220hp N/A.

It will be in the magazine. All of our project cars eventually wind up in print. About the only online content that we have that stays online is a portion of our new car reviews.

You talking about the guy on Hildreth? If so, he moved . That car was really nice. It had a built 2.1, custom cams, DI, full exhaust etc. It did like 240whp.
