    400/400 at the wheels-- easily 150/150 gain.

    STOCK exhaust, STOCK IC, etc...

    theres probably 50 more to get with an upgraded exhaust and front mount... but 400 i could live with for a while :p

    i'm looking into this more... not sure if i'm ready to mod the sti or not... if i do, the hatch needs to go.... and i need to score a 90-93 accord beater or some shit. lol


    and so it begins?




    blah, i really don't want to touch the thing... but i want MORE MORE MORE! lol

    Thats like my integra.. I bought it for a family car, and am trying to leave it alone.. Its hard.. It had steelies so I slapped on some gunmetal motegi MR7s. The clutch went out so I put in a exedy stage 1.. Needed a tuneup so I installed NGK everything and a K&N filter.

    As things need replaced I'm sneaking in better parts. I really don't want to mod it at all, but it will happen sooner or later.

    Do it............... you know you want too.....
    I for one love the sound of a dump tube, one of my friends has a turbo gti vr6 (just completed) and we just put a new tranny on it sunday, running about 7psi, soon to be 16psi, but the thing is quick, anyways he has a dump tube and i think it sounds sick.

    I was actually thinking about putting a GT30R on my prelude...might be kinda fun to run at low boost until i get my engine finished.

    I just dont know if i want a fun FWD for 10k, or a fun AWD/RWD for 30k...still up in the air.

    how much for a running driveable del-sol? even if you swap a d16z6 back in there? i could use a nice daily driver. im kinda serious too. i have the talon for a winter beater, but thats becoming my swap project. i need an in-between car that i can have for when and if i blow up the mirage. ;)

    the del sol is running and driveable as we speak.

    it needs an exahust (that E has at his house)
    and the interior snapped back in place.


    thats it.

    its in the driveway, drove it around the block the other day.
    b16 powered.
