well...it's been about 5 months since i parted out my supra. I figured i would post pics of my new ride. I know it's not a supra, but it is easier on the wallet in the mod department. Especially since i got it for a good deal. here are the pics.















fully built head and bottom end, fmic, greddy type s bov, fuel system.....no times yet. Water/ alky injection system in the works.

my friends uncle has a TSi ([email protected] stock turbo)! AWESOME CAR!! blistering acceleration! thank god for AWD! ;) but from what i understand they go through trannies like we go through HG's! and my friends uncle blew his Talon up a few months back when the turbo fin broke loose and got sucked in through the IC, through the Engine and out the exhuast! lets just say he's not too happy with Turbonetics! :rolleyes:

DSM's are nice BUT if you think the Supra is bad on the wallet you just wait.... Dimond Star made a Great powerplant but forgot to design a good way to transfer the power.... the Tranny and Drivelines are gonna be your weakest points.... good luck bud. (Go SDS..... that works great with the DSM's)
reason this dsm is easier on the wallet is because everything is already done to it...it has 10g's in motor work and i picked the car up for 5g's. To get my supra to where this car will run would have taken more money that i didn't want to spend. Ahh well, i understand the tranny will probably go but i'll just try and slip the clutch as much as possible without putting too much stress on it. Seeing ultra7m's and Rons car makes me miss mine sometimes. I'll still be on this forum adding my 2cents here and there. :D
