As a federal consultant you'll get to see first hand how incompetently your tax money gets spent!
I've always got the vibe that guys with weapons on walls are really looking forward to a break-in so that they can put them to good use and live out their melee combat dreams.
Also, what do you track?
Caddy CTS / ATS sedan/coupe, Audi S4/S5, MB C350 coupe (I think the four door looks like balls but the coupe rules). You could wait for the Jaguar XE.
A T-56 manual transmission (GM) mated to a 1UZ-FE (Toyota) is pretty sweet. The 1UZ was automatic transmission only, and so you have to custom build an adapter plate to get it to mate to a stick. Typically, people do R154 trannies (also Toyota). Never heard of a T56 swap which is a muuuuch better trans. Later in life I want to make a 1UZ Supra track car that's more or less got this guy's setup:
Score one for the good guys, TC. Glad you got a fair deal.
Of course I was only half-serious. It's a shame you can't touch the tuning since it's what makes boosted engines so great.
Alternatively, you could make friends with the dealership mechanic and have him turn up the turbo boost to get to you the hp/tq desired.
Took the Supra from DC to Cape Cod for the week. Survived the f'ing hurricane that struck New York City on Sunday afternoon and thought I was going to lose the car thru a good mile of standing water after the GW bridge. Otherwise a decent drive! Sometime this week I'm going to do the Route 6 drive around the Cape that's supposed to be nice.
I gotta imagine that any LR speciality shop in the area has the requisite equipment. From a quick Google search, you might want to look into these guys:1) http://www.yelp.com/biz/british-unlimited-spring2) http://www.yelp.com/biz/motorcars-houston-8
