I have an Intrepid ES, 3.5L, slightly modified engine (K&N air filter, rebuilt intake), a low-profile dual Borla exhaust ($1200, with high performance mufflers and billeted tips), 18" Quantum Tek silver alloy wheels (kinda cheap), Toyo Proxes ZR's, and about $2500 worth of suspension work, including Eibach Proline suspension/2 inch lower, and totally rebuild strut towers with Koni adjustable struts (currently set to the stiffest possible setting).
The 3.5 V6 sounds like a V8 with the exhaust, and it scares all the Honda drivers around here. So far the fastest cars I've raced (and beaten) were a '99 Mustang, '86 Trans-Am with a rebuilt 350 (an amazing challenge, very close, but I had an edge after 3rd hit at 80mph), and a Honda S2000. The Honda had insane acceleration off the line, and had about 2 car lengths ahead of me at 45-50 mph, but when second kicked in, I took it over. The guy wouldn't stop, and by 100 mph he started catching up again. I still have the bragging rights though, I'm in a "family car," and I beat his little roadster on the straightaway.
So far, the only cars I've lost drags to have been: 2001 Camaro SS, '98 Corvette, Not-sure-what-year Porsche 911 (duh!), and a twin-turbo 300ZX (he had also modified the turbos, had an insane exhaust setup, and posi-track rear wheel drive, whereas I'm working with a front-wheel traction control joke of a drivetrain).
Anyway, I love the car. When I first saw the thing, I never expected it to be as much fun to drive. It's also the Cranberry/Burgundy color, with a silver two-tone bottom that perfectly (PERFECTLY) matches my wheels. The exhaust tips are the only chrome part on the entire car, yet it still looks like a pimp-mobile after it's done being washed.
