    look's uber badass with the black wheel's on it....that's the 1st time i've heard u can do a sohc block an a dohc head....i thought u couldnt do that due 2 physical size, coolant passages, and headbolt location's

    K, my front bumper is fixed, my intercooler is straight, and thank you! I am the only person I know thats taken their 2.4 SOHC and made it a DOHC. People take my block and put it in their GS-T's and make a stroker motor. I did it cheaper!

    Wow thats a nice looking tire shredder. :-D
    A friend of mine built a stroker motor for his GST Spyder and with all that torque, he can barely keep the tires on it.

    I love the torque. The SOHC has gobs of it from the start. Now that it is turbo'd and DOHC, it is very torquey. I am on my second set of Axles. I am having DriveShaftShop build me a set if this set breaks!

    I think the red looked better than the orange. good idea on the motor, now it's time to lower that compression so you can run some real boost!

    Thanks, my car IS red. The pics make it look Orange, I dunno why. I need new pics. I just ordered a Full-Race manilfold and Downpipe. We'll see how she runs with that.

    we did that two years ago ;) looks good except the front bumper. I don't like body kits. Also, why did you get a ported and clipped t25? Those things are useless.

    thumbs down to the t25 lol best i could ever do on it with no boost control and stock boost was [email protected] did a 6bolt swap and ported my 14b then went [email protected](shitty driving) now i have an fp green and supporting mods so im lookin for low 12's high 11's. Needless to say the t25 is gay haha

    good luck with the car...do you have any time slips?

    oh and your car looks better with black wheels.

    if you went 13.5 on the 14b and expect to get into the 11's, you've got some wishful thinking. You need to learn how to tune bro.

    Gotta crawl before you can run.

    I hope to have my car tuned by the end of January. I know, I need a 14B, thats my next mod. I forgot to state the fact that I have JE Pistons, Pauter rods on the bottom, with Crane Cams Stage 1 setup up top. Everything has been fully balanced and blueprinted. Thats why I am kinda taking it slow, I don't wanna fuck anything up. Any thing you guys can help me with...throw some things out there that might help me.
