    i'm really not around that much anymore...just come on to browse the website here and there...etc.

    since i sold the green machine (green 92 eg with ITR motor...some of you may remember it) i've messed around with dsm's mostly. after realizing the cost of honda's (i do miss them) i've stayed with dsm's because of their affordability vs potential.

    here is my project...i also have a 95 gst with a few misc mods.

    Modifications are listed below.

    Engine:
    4g63 (stock head/bottom end)
    Evo3 16g Turbo (exhaust housing is ceramic coated)
    2g Exhaust Manifold (ceramic coated)
    2g 02 Housing (ceramic coated)
    780cc injectors
    Extrude Honed Intake Manifold
    Evo1 Throttle Body
    Evo1 IC
    Evo1 IC Piping
    2.5 Inch Downpipe
    3.0 Inch Exhaust

    Transmission:
    ACT 2600 Clutch
    91 FWD Transmission (Built, Upgraded Synchro's)
    Kaaz Differential

    Suspension:
    Ground Control/Koni (rear)
    Ground Control/Kyb (front)
    RRE Camber Plates
    Evo1 Dual Piston Front Brakes
    RRE Stainless Steel Braided Brake Lines
    Evo1 Wheels

    The car is making around 300whp, 300tq and weighs about 2350lbs. I've taken out the heater core, ac setup and a few other misc items.

    Here are a few new pictures...

    honestly, its not really a sleeper. most people realize something is unusual about the car because its quite a bit louder than your average colt...and its washed/waxed/decent wheels/tires which is very rare these days.

    but its still fun to put car lengths on porsche 911 turbo owners who think their car is faster than anything else on the road.

    they sold turbo MIrage/Colt hatch's in the US (hence 4G61t.org)...



    If you have one of the turbo cars, the 4G63 is an easy/bolt-in swap

    Non-turbo...a bit more involved, a lot of wiring, but worth it in the end



    judging by his interior and body panels, that was a turbo car in the 1st place

    i'm one of the original members. (first 3 or 4) E_sol SI, wildbillhatchbac, and SiSteve...

    and this colt was an original turbo model...which makes it a lot easier when doing the swap.
