Default Potential of the big bad F

So As I'm pretty sure everyone knows that houston is known around for having high performance high horsepower cars. I've had my ISF for years now and I can honestly say that the time with this car has been very fun and over the years I've been able to test the car against some of its competition . Il let the videos speak for themselves, yes you can call this a "kill" post however I just wanted to let new comers who are interested in the Isf see it's true potential and how it can keep up and outrun many and I mean many if not keep up with many other cars on the road today. Imagine if the car was tune able or able to turbo charge this thing would be an absolute monster. So with this marks the end of my almost completed journey with the isf as I'm moving on to new things. Car has exhaust, headers, stock intake stock filter, Bc 16/14k coilovers Dialed for street. Stock Bridgestone tires/sizes. Toms aero kit and some other appearance features here and there.

Runs from RPR in baytown houston videos are bad quality idk why i didnt record was driving.
-Bmw 335i jb4 tune, full bolt ons
-NIssan silvia unknown mods was sticking to me though
-Mustang 5.0 think he missed a gear
Runs with a 98 Camaro ss Z28 full bolt ons, tune,
Runs with the new 15 Mustang 5.0
Ran a c5 zo6 corvette exhaust headers tune i think thats about it not sure if it was cammed but it might have some port work done.
Ran my buddies cts-v just for fun. in my op i think i did pretty good. i wasnt exactly massacred.
and finally a burnout for you guys

Damn, I wish the videos were more clear. Nonetheless, I think you managed to capture the exiliration this F puts out. Thank you very much for this! Your F sounds very awesome! Can you post some pics?, I would really like to get some ideas for mine, what exhaust and header setup do you have? Also, being that you drive it like you should, does your oil temp go up? It normally sits 1 bar before the middle. When you switch to manual and get on it, does it go up? Thanks in advance...

Great video. I do agree that the quality could be more clearer. Just out of curiosity, what car are you looking forward to replace the F?

I apologize about the quality of the videos. And yes the F was meant to be driven hard, and il post pictures in this thread later on. To answer your questions Im running ppe headers and a custom exhaust similar to iss forged and no my oil temp stays within normal range only once has its ever gone up and it's only gone up 1 bar because I did 7 runs back to back with some mustangs and supras and camaros. The Isf can really handle the stress. You don't have to worry about it switching to manual, if it does goes up you might want to get that looked at, but I don't see how the transmission would affect your engine oil temp
