The Outsiders


Meaning:mechanically modified to increase the power or attractiveness

The correct term is "suped-up." "Souped" up is a gag that humorists in car magazines use as an example of someone being ignorant of the subject, eg: "This guy wanted to 'soup-up' his car, and asked me if he should use Tomato or Chicken soup."

Sentence: Trying to soup-up my appearance for my cousin's wedding tonight, I put on my dad's best suit and tie.
