I also drive a 6 speed 01 Powerstroke that's lifted and on 35s.. Haha

The subarus are fun for corners and being a street racer.. But blowing smoke and being able to pull a school over is also really fun too..

I've never considered blowing smoke fun. Unless it's from the tires. Lol.
I haven't been able to justify a truck before, but being a home owner is pointing me towards the 2019 Tundra TRD Pro. Diesel is a bit over kill for hauling a couple bikes or any other toy I may buy.

It's overkill for me about 95% of the time too. But 400+ hp and God knows how much torque is fun.. It breaks the 35s loose on command. Once a month or so I haul cars or other trucks and have moved big loads on trailers occasionally..


Everything I do could be done with a gasser, but this truck was 13k with 100k miles and a 6 speed manual.. I couldn't even come close to finding a equally capable gasser for that price that I wanted..

My buddy had a 600whp 6 speed 3rd gen with a hood stack. Thing was awesome to drive when I was 17. Short shift it into 4th and it'd just barf black everywhere.

If you lead with that, that's a dam hard price to pass on for a deisel. Especially it being stick.

Especially since most 7.3s run for 400k+.. This is a lifetime truck for me.

Don't think the muricans get these so this is aimed at the euro lot but any thoughts on these
looking to replace my cupra

Don't take my word as gospel cos I've never owned or driven one but my understanding is that the early twin turbo ones are riddled with faults. The later single turbo is much better. Not the sharpest of hot hatches but undeniably fast!!! If you look on evo.co.uk there's a buyers guide that's pretty in depth about issues and costs. They always seem pretty spot on with their opinions.

It was the N54 that potentially had riddled problems with turbos etc etc. They could be built bomb proof though! This generation up to now (N55) are very good engines, reliable and capable of a lot of power with little mods. Just be prepared to constantly fill the bastard up though, you won’t get much over 20mpg on a regular basis ????

I wish. Just a rendering I found on the web. But if I'm ever filthy stinking rich beyond belief, I want to make that happen! Big Grin

I'm so sad I didn't get pictures to post on here... was rushing into the hospital, but did park next to it so seeing it definitely made my day better lol. If Batman had a Mustang, this thing would've been it. Pretty new Mustang GT (2018?), all glossy blacked out, big carbon spoiler on the rear, Brembo brakes, black leather interior, manual transmission, etc... probably one of the sickest/most attractive cars I've seen in a while.
