So, thought I start this for those of us who own some nice rides.

Anyways, list important mods, track times, dynoed hp/tq(realistic numbers), cosmetics, audio, etc. Dont forget pics! Show some proof that you at least have the car and be proud of it! Feel free to add any KIND remarks about your car or others.

I myself drive a 93 MR2 Turbo. The last time I was on the Dyno I was just under 280hp(Im shooting for 300+)
I did a N/A to Turbo swap + LSD tranny after I got the car
Ive got a manual boost controller running 15psi on a ct26 turbo charger
Rebuilt stock wastegate(aftermarket BOVs are a waste of time)
Ive taken out the primary cat
Twin exit exhaust
Ignition kit(thicker silicone wires)
Im rocking a stage 3 clutch and pressure plate capable of holding 350+ hp
New ball joints, struts, springs
Lowered the car little over an inch
Ive got staggered wheels 15x6 up front 15x7 rear(wish I had new ones, but Im going for the sleeper look and rims show that you put money into your car)

Lots of cosmetic work done: Low-rise headlight kit, interior LEDs converted from green to red, quick release steering wheel, weighted shift knob, short shifter, new lower front lip, polished intercooler piping, Boost and AFR gauges in A-piller gauge pod, plus new paint coming soon to front and rear bumpers.

Audio work: 7" touch screen DVD player in console, upgraded the midrange speakers to some nice 6"s, added two 6x9s behind each seat(hits like my GFs 10s) infinity reference tweeters and crossovers, 12 gauge speaker wire powering them all.

Weight reduction all over the car: no jack, spare tire, extra plastic/trim/carpet that would not be seen missing(in the trunk, front bay, and behind seats), removed stock antenna and motor plus wiring(replaced by windshield antenna), also had the radiator and alternator replaced by lighter, higher performing versions after the stock ones gave out on me.

Getting some new CV joints and drag slicks before I take her out to the track. (don't want to break a axle)
After some paint, I'm getting the motor rebuilt from a 2.0 to a 2.2 stroker. Possibly upgrading to a ct20b turbo or a ct27 produced by ATS racing.

couple of pics:

Thanks, Ill get a better shot some time this week showing off my new wheel. Sounds about right for the car, I bet after the TNT kit it was over 100K though. Sure is pretty! Ive raced some vetts before and I can hold my own until we hit 70mph, that's when my 4 banger loses to the raw power of the v8s and v10s.

Jeep TJ sport

does that count?
230 HP and 215 Ibs at 3000 RPM baby! Inline six FTW!
( legit, im good right up untill 60 Km/H ( 40 ish MP/h) then I get destroyed.

but jeeps are not really aerodynamic... so going "fast" in a jeep never really happens... speed wobbles at 110 Km/H :)

but on a more serious note... I once saw a Nissan Micra on the highway. 3 cylinder cars all day long :blink:

Lol. 2001 Chevy Malibu.

But I work at a Chevy dealership and we're getting a Corvette ZR1. I'm sure I won't get to drive it though.

But I have gotten to drive the new Camaros. 426 HP.

94 Dodge Stealth Rt. Sadly not the TT model.

220 Hp 215ish Torque.
Never been to the dyno but my guess would be like 180 around there.

Stock except for a 3 in exhaust, and no cat and free flow 3in down pipe.

My plan is to keep it until after college and then get the tt model in either a stealth or 3000gt and then go crazy from there.

Yeah, I got it, I already did a na to turbo swap on it. No better way to add almost 100 horses and drain 4K lol
Im thinking of getting out of the whole engine build thing though. It was fun until everything started breaking. Ill probably turn it into a show car after I take it out to the strip and get into the 12 second range. :happy:

High power clutches = death to drivetrain which is why Im getting new cvs before I get slicks. Breaking an axle at the track is the worst experience ever. But vdubs are fun to drive, couple friends have them, wish I had the money. Instead I buy a crappy car, fix it up, drive it for a couple weeks, then sell it or wreck it lol

After the MR2 is all taken care of Im buying a 92ish F150 and turning it into a zombie killing truck. Black rattle can paint job(with red band symbols and anarchy signs lol), roll cage, bull bars and some flood lights. Im going to learn how to weld and build some protection for it. Itll be interesting to say the least: the grocery getter on steroids.

so far no mods (expect floormats haha)

but once i get my eagle project done, i get an
-cold air intake
-SCT tuner
-Black 5 spoke saleen wheels
-avic touch screen GPS


i'm planing out a remote turbocharger (think STS turbo) for when i get some more money, ive been planning for a few months now.

i would go with something like the X-charger or a centrifugal charger, but the 4.6 v8s, and especially the 4.0 v6 seem like there are no good superchargers out there that dont suffer from some horrible parasitic power losses when not running at boost.

plus, i can build my turbo kit from the ground up, fuel system and all, (if you look up an STS turbo, it's a TON easier to make/install than one in the engine compartment) for around $1500 depending on what parts i take off of OEM turbo'ed cars and what i buy new. while an x-charger would cost $4000 and still would only be able to safely put on 7psi (no intercooler ftl) and only puts out 280hp give or take while a turbo setup can run 300 or more on that same 7 psi, and with the turbo actually make better gas mileage than stock! (no boost of course, i'll explain how this works if you need me to)

sure, a supercharger would be an easier/lighter system, but performance per dollar comes first.
