Turbo 5.3 LSX Fairmont, Greg's First Ride in the Ultimate Sleeper
This is Greg, my 15 year old son's, first ride in the Fairmont. He is the one that found the car on YouTube and told me about it and that Matt (Denmah) wanted to sell it. Too bad it was dark, because you can't see his face. We will make another video this weekend in the light. Anyway, enjoy...there are several hard pulls here with absolutely no traction...and me cackling like an idiot. I love this car!!!

Also something to note around Mighty Car Mods: we are normal guys and are
not trained mechanics. We like to make interesting car mods and show you
how we've gone about it, but we can't promise that anything we show you
will work for your particular car, or that you won't harm yourself, someone
else, your car or your warranty doing it. Please be safe, be responsible
and unless you know what you're doing, do not fool around with very serious
machinery just because you've seen us make it look so easy. Talk to a
qualified mechanic if you are in any doubt.
Leroy Brown the Turbo LSX Fairmont at TX2K14.....
Wins and losses at TX2K14. The races against the Vette, Monte and RX7 were
on low Boost, 12 psi. The Supras
were raced on 15-16 psi as was the LSX Willys. It was a good time. We had
some issues and the car was pushing some coolant on long pulls, but we came
to race and we did. I had hoped for more action, but maybe next time!

RX7 is so brilliant.
Spalt takes the Fairmont Challenge....5.3 Turbo LSx Fairmont Ride Along
Took my friend Mike Spalt out for a ride today. Mike has been in most of my
cars, way back to the wagon when I first got it in 2000. I think he had a
good time here. I decided to leave the mic under the hood and capture the
engine sound, I think the facial expressions speak for themselves. This is
about 14.8 psi on WG spring. Spun quite a bit today, must still have too
much air in the Mickeys.
