If your exhaust tip is larger than your cylinder bore, then you are a Ricer.

Your ignorance annoys me quite a bit, there isn't anything wrong with the mn12 or fn12 platform it can be turned into a great handling, fast car if the owner was so inclined.

On a different note if you want to put dayton's or wire wheels on your car so be it, I feel its ugly but that's my opinion, its your car do what you want with it, but the answer you were originally looking for is: yes it has been done, no I don't have pics, the rim size was likely 14", with an awful backspacing sticking it way to far out of the wheel well.

And it's probably not the best candidate for a low rider project either. Yet that doesn't desuede you from doing that to one. But you think it's a waste of time to make these cars go fast because it's not an ideal candidate for that sort of project?

why do you think we even care if mn12's are not the best choice for speed? neither are mustangs, neither are corvettes, ect. its personal preference, you can make anything as fast as you want. some of us here choose to make these fast, if you want to piss and moan about it get out and go about your buisness.

besides that, no one directly said to you you cant make a lowrider out of it, 2 people made a joke and you decided to alienate the whole mn12 community in revenge... grow up

dude, like we have already said many times, the IRS makes it a wonderful candidate for high performance car. there is so much potential in a thunderbird open your freakin eyes man. you are like the scare crow... "if i only had a brain"....

If your exhaust tip is larger than your cylinder bore, then you are a Ricer.

if you do decide to make a lowrider out of it, PLEASE dont use a 5.0 coug for pete's sake. there are so few of them in good condition that are out there. at least go out and find a v6.

this blows my mind! a better platform. i think you mean to say CHEAPER! go buy your everybody has one camero or mustang and throw money at it.

lemme see, better platform, well IRS, mid bodied gas tank for better weight dist. better aerodynamics, long/short arm front suspension, engine bays big enough to do anything with except put a 4 banger in which came in your "better platforms" legroom and cabin space big enough for a 6'5"+ person and stick shift available, etc. etc. etc.

isn't there a slammed.net or a blinging.org that you could've posted that question on instead of a performance and enthusiest forum???
