    Sadly, after only 3 weeks of owning it, i have to let it go. It being as fast as it is, not to mention RWD and turbo, scared my parents into giving me an ultimatum: sell the starion and they'll buy me a scion of my choice; which i promptly accepted.

    The car is in excellent shape, as you can see in the pictures! Only place with imperfections is the lower airdam. It has 67k miles on the original engine. It runs and drives like it was brand new! I have only put 500 miles on it since i bought it(150 from drving from tucson to phoenix.) Asking $4500 obo. I will ship it at buyers expense.

    Car is Located in Phoenix, arizona.

    mods as are follows:

    14G turbo
    TEP non jet valve head
    3" KDM full exhaust
    Magnaflow muffler
    3 wire O2 sensor
    Full 2 1/4" KDM hard pipe kit
    KDM AHP kit 1G MAS and K&N filter
    KDM OVCP
    Turbo XS RFL blow off valve
    Taylor 8mm Race Wires
    NGK Iridium plugs; one step colder than stock
    MSD Blaster2 coil
    Rebuilt TB w/ new zinc hardware, new inj clips, inj cleaned/flowed/tested
    Strut tower brace
    New radiator w/ KDM silicone rad hoses, all coolant hoses replaced
    Air Fuel and Boost gauges
    Blitz Electronic Dual Stage SBC
    Greddy turbo timer
    Stedabani short throw shifter
    Tokico blue struts
    Coil overs set at 1" down
    Sony head unit
    Sony 10 disc cd changer
    Sony front Amp (unknown power)
    Sony rear Amp (unknown powe)
    Equalizer
    2 8" MTX Blue Thunder subwoofers



    Known Problems: All of the under the hood emissions devices were taken off by the previous owner. It failed emissions in arizona 2 times. something happened with the BOV, it's not as loud as it normally is. i thinkit's just a loose connection, or a line that came un done, should be an easy fix. the drivers side seat belt sticks in the "door closed" position, and does not retract when the door is opened. The front seat's aren't in perfect condition, and seat covers are included. The rear seats are clean!

    ^ you should just make an exhaust for the thing that has 3 extra cat's in it . . . bolt it on, and then pass the test.

    I like the box. Post pics!

    I think it's funny that your parents made you sell it because it's too fast, yet they let you mod the del Sol.

    the owner of the shop that was trying tog et it to pass emissions told me dad "that thing is a rocket" and "he's gunna get himself into trouble" which didnt help out at all. my dad drove the starion home(i was in tucson) and was overwhelmed when the turbo spooled. his description was quite funny actually!

    yeah, the del sol is kristies.. ran 16.7@80ish was my best time with it.. lol. the thing is slow as hell, but it'll beat up my box though >_>


    starion is still for sale! someone buy it!

    Ooooooooh ok. So make the guy at the inspection shop buy it, since it's his fault. :p

    You can still make the box relatively quick. Toyota engine toughness > Honda engine toughness.

    Compare equivalent engines... Toyota's stuff is bulletproof. Just look at the Supra- then check out how much power people are making on reliable daily driven turbo Camrys and tCs.

    True, but you can compare the D series in the Honda to the ? series 1.5L in the Scion/Echo

    lol, just another honda owner hiding from the fact that honda's are not the muscle cars they were made out to beleive, and that they are not overtly superior to other jap 4cyl motors.

    Go for it. :) I wasn't trying to start a contest or a pissing match anyway.

    The engine geometry is a little screwy with the DOHC 1.5L in the Echo and Scions though. Sure, you'll make more with the D16A6, but compare any other D block to the Scion and you'll be outmatched.

    well i could register it, but not smog it legally, and i don't want to mess with it under the table. Here in SD they pull over a lot of cars if they suspect that they have modified engines. i always see hondas pulled over witht he hoods popped. yea, if i had that thing i'd last about a week before i got pulled over or killed, lol.
