I'm about to finally get my Evo tuned. Here's the skinny on it:

03 GSR with 113k
-BC 276 cams and single valve springs/Ti retainers
-ARP head studs
-stock bottom end
-ETS FF turbo kit with the Xona Rotor 7864 turbo
-TiAL wastegates and BOV
-ETS 4" FMIC kit with custom Ti upper intercooler pipe
-STM trans mounted catch can
-FIC 1650cc injectors
-Custom billet intake manifold (not pictured as I don't have it yet :p )
-Exedy HD twin
-Boosted Fab front crossmember
-Radium double pumper with two Walbro 450's
- -8AN feed, Radium microglass filter, Injector Dynamics F750 fuel filter, -6AN return
-FatFab battery relocation
-Silver's NeoMax coilovers
-Advan RSII 18x9.5 +22

I'm hoping to hit the 600whp mark on E85, but we shall see if the stock bottom end if happy at that power level or not haha

Hunting for a '78 F150 and come across a lot of cool trucks that need some love and would be fun projects.

Stuck on one up north that's perfect, doesn't need any work but having a hard time justifying the price tag even though they will only appreciate in value IMO, especially since it's a supercab.

I know, I know. I’ve been working on the car, but slacking on the updates. I’ll try and put something together tonight.

Thanks man!

I can dig a clean C4! The last shop I worked at, we did a 383 stroker, D1SC ProCharger and Holley Dominator EFI setup - it was a fun time!

Holy crap the paint on that thing is clean! Has it been painted since 03?
I can share some pretty sweet drag cars if your interested, not really the builds you are talking about.

Is that the one being K-swapped?

I'd do a GT350 motor in one of those, to at least give it some kind of flat plane exhaust note!

My current project is a '68 Plymouth Fury with an old school built mechanical cam 440 in it, reverse pattern manual valve body 727 on the column, and a way too loose converter. I eventually want to put a Holley sniper and nitrous on it, hoping to get it into the 10's eventually.

Yeah, K-swapped, 1,000 hp, huge turbo. The goal was to make it as light as possible, so that's why he went with the K. The stock motor was a nice sounding boat anchor that he sold for $11k!

Well Thank you sir...

I have a 91,. I like this year for it has the newer interior, rounded off nose and tail .. while still using the stump pulling L98.. 92 they went with the LT1 which has the dreaded opti-spark issue.

I find the C4 a fascinating transition car from the 70's to 90' tech. frankly if i was a Vette i might be a 91 for better or worse.. Actually just picked up this one owner 16k mile 78 pace car!

Your evo makes me miss mine. I had an 06' GSR with some minor bolt ons and pushing 450whp. It was definitely my favorite car that I've had over the years. I threw on a nose chopped 8 bumper on and some carbon fiber goodies. She looked good! I will see if I can dig up a pic or 2.

Looks good! I had a few decent rides. 2008 C6 Z06 (H/C, 125 shot), 2006 C6 Z06 (H/C), 2012 CTS-V Coupe (bolt on's E85), 03 Cobra (Kenne Bell @ 19psi). A few more others mixed in there as well. Since my kid takes all of my money, just moto now lol. Every time I look in the garage, I see a really nice modded Z06 parked in there lol. Then I blink and see dirtbikes lol.

I posted this earlier, but accidentally deleted when I tried to edit.

My B5 with RS4/6 K04 hybrid turbo’s on E85. 450whp. Love me some violent AWD cars.

Not a build, but bought one of the cars I've always wanted. 2017 5 litre Mustang. In the UK it's an absolute pain in the arse as we have lots of tiny roads built a long time before cars were invented. But so far I love it! Booked in to the 1/4 mile at Santa pod raceway in October, really looking forward to it.

Thanks! Yep, they are the polished Torq Thrusts.

Since that post I raced it in Roadkill Nights (legal street racing here in Detroit) and also took it to Norwalk a couple Fridays ago. It's running okay for a tank of a car, went 12.46 @ 108. Going to try to get it into the high 11's next year either by changing heads or putting some nitrous on it.

1989 toyota supra turbo with 250k miles on it. the car is mint and bone stock, just needs alot of stuff on it to be refurbished/replaced (just rebuilt the power steering rack on it).

once i get everything sorted out mechnically, i plan on doing a standalone ecu and an upgraded .57 trim ct26 turbo and supporting mods. should be good for 400 whp give or take @ 1 bar of boost. i want ot upgrade the wheels and suspension but like i said earlier, i need to get the rest of the car sorted out first.

im keeping the original 7mgte motor in there, no plans to do a 2jz swap as i dont have the time nor do i think i need a 600 whp street car

i am also contemplating buying a porsche 996 turbo in the next year or so.

9/21/2021 6:04 AM

the plan (if i get one) is to upgrade the clutch master cylinder, replace the hydraulic system for the wing with an electronic one and put in a set of k24 turbos off the x50 package (slightly bigger than the k16s it comes with) and a set of 997 intercoolers and a tune. should be good for 500 whp or so

btw, i like your evo (to the OP)

i always wanted an evo 8 or 9 but never had the moeny and now they are too expensive.

i was into doing track days a few years ago and was always on the lookout for a clean evo 8 rs (i believe this was the model that had a mechanical differential and manual windows) as it would've been a good platform for a track car.

Not exactly a build yet and definitely not a car... but, thought some fellow gearheads would enjoy it. I picked up my Atlas Blue 2022 F350 Platinum 6.7l Powerstroke last week. Traded in my 2019 and ordered it back in June. I LOVE it. The 10 speed is flawless. Its really a rocket for being 8k lbs. This is the first year of Atlas Blue on these trucks. Really digging it. Drastically different looking color depending on lighting.

I do have a 1996 Ford F350 4x4 7.5l CCLB project that im rebuilding/refreshing. Picked it up needing some work/reassembly for $1500. Its relatively rust free, which is impressive for a 25 year old mid-atlantic 4x4.

So far it has a new core support, Heddman headers, remaned OEM fuel injectors, stainless steel brake lines through the whole truck, stainless steel trans cooler lines, new trans cooler, water pump, new fuel tanks, pumps and sending units. POR 15 on the frame. General tune up. 33s and black wheels for now. Close to driving it.
