    (Radical Racing)

    I'd like to see more HP/TQ on the street and from what I have read e85 is the way to go, it is currently pullied for 20lbs... Here is my question, who in the Dallas Fort Worth area does a good job, I come from the Lightning world and have a good idea of who the best builders/tuners are, but I am lost when it comes to terminators, I have heard some say Gearheads over in Arlington and other mention HPP racing is the best, so who do you guys recommend?

    Also, the car has a 2.5" exhaust, I know my Lightning picked up some good TQ going to a 3". Is a 3" too much for a termi? Any and all info will be much appreciated!!!

    Here are a few pics from the previous owner (Rob,-Owner of LightningRodder)

    Here is an old shot
