    When you get your stock truck up to 535 whp let us know what it took.

    you think 535 isnt good out a 4cyl 2.0l. you aparentlly dont know much about cars...
    Those 2.0L DOHC are great motors. I have owned a few of the Chrysler variant with the stock head(neon) and the reverse flow head(avenger/eclipse). 535 is impressive.
    I tried being reasonable, I didn't like it.

    Here are some pics of my 04 WRX. Just your average mods, turbo back, up pipe, top mount, and a self tune.

    it has been "de-stickered" for the most part, the original owner took off the OEM vinyl kit otherwise it would look like this bike.

    Ok.. Not to call YOU out but anyone can post pics of someone else's engine bay.. that bay is kind of a golden color.. Post pics of your car with the hood up to prove it.. That is a sweet setup though. Im in the process of building my 6 bolt 63t to put in my galant but i wont have any need for dual rpm gauges myself........................ BTW... Why does the inlet on the holset you have in the seperate pic appear to be ALOT smaller than the inlet on the turbo thats in the car?

    Guess you're not paying for insurance then or you have a heck of a job. Do your parents know your plans? I wanted an El Camino for my first car but couldn't afford the insurance and my parents thought it was too much for a first car, even though I had 6 years of racing experience by the time I was 16, so I had to start with an S-10 (4-cylinder so I wouldn't waste my money fixing that up) and then got a Camaro a year later.

    Streetdemon is right, I had a Lebaron GTS Turbo Sedan for my first car and when I bought it full coverage would have cost over $3200 on a car I had just paid $2300 for!

    I don't care what anyone says 535 out of a little 2.0 liter 4 banger is pretty good, although probably not very reliable. Only problem I have with something like that is just how much it costs to do that to a car. It would be so much cheaper to just buy an old Monte carlo or something, drop in a GM crate motor and maybe supercharge it and you'd be able to blow the doors off of any import, probably without the supercharger. What kind of numbers are you looking at torque-wise? Also, I'm not trying to down your car, american muscle is just more my thing, plus I can't stand the sound of those fart cans, which do nothing performance wise. It's like they say, there's no replacement for displacement.

    My first bike was a 1989 Suzuki Katana 600, not a true sportbike, kind of sport-touring-ish, Would have cost me over 3 grand a year to insure fully if everything was in my name. Keep in mind where I live there is only about 6 or 7 months of good riding around here, October-March are usually out. I only paid a grand for the thing.

    Yeah My Parents know my plan. they don't mind in fact my mom's first car was a rebuilt '67 Mustang and my dad had a '70s mustang. my parents are going to pay for half of my insurance.

    I'm sorry but my evo ate American muscle for breakfast. and while that does look like a fart can, a larger diameter exaust is important for engines with alot of boost, my evo, mostly stock, was pushing 22 psi, put about 350 to the wheels, bhp means nothing.

    Man i need more than 50 characters.

    The problem with most ricers is that even if they have horsepower, they lack the torque. HP without torque means NOTHING. And if you were only making 350 to the wheels there's no way you were "eating american muscle for breakfast". A stock Corvette (not even a Z06) would be right with you, putting down similar hp numbers, but having the torque to get it going and keep it going. And if american muscle and bhp mean nothing, tell me why ALL of the fastest drag cars have ENORMOUS engines putting out thousands of horsepower out of 500cc+ motors.

    excuse me bhp= blown horse power thats hp at the fly wheel, and my car put out near 400ftlbs of torque and, yes I've blown right by mustangs and beamers, even a svt cobra, please get your facts straight before you attack my post I've been tunning and working on cars since i was 10, thats almost 15 years experience buddy. try to relax a little.

    No it won't, why do you always say that when this comes up? I know you like japanese cars and that's fine that's just not true. You will NEVER get the power out of a Japanese car that you can get out of American cars, the engine are just too small. If you follow drag racing at all you would see that people put Chevy 350 small blocks (moreso than any other american engine) in foreign cars all the time when they can, A LOT of rx-7's are like that. You know why they do that? Not because it's slower. I've NEVER seen anyone take out their V8 to put in a tiny Japanese motor to go faster.

    I stand somewhat corrected. BHP is brake horsepower, not blown. Either way I was wrong, I was thinking BHP and Crank horsepower were the two different ones. And how is a beamer American muscle? I'm not saying that mustangs are really that fast. An 02 Camaro will take an 02 Mustang any day, those 4.6 motors didn't put out the power. Either way try racing a Corvette or an older car that's in true American Muscle form (something with a big block in it, laying down 450-500 at the wheels) then see who wins. The time spent working on something doesn't mean anything though, I know a lot of people who have been doing something for years and I can do it better than them after only a few weeks. Not saying you don't know what you're doing, just saying that time doesn't necessarily mean you know more than someone else, it's what you take from your time.

    God I love me a good flame thread. I love when people compare "American Muscle" to a "Ricer". I drive a humble car (almost 300 hp and similar torque #'s), and know for a fact that since I have the advantage of 4WD that I could take on some of the "American Muscle" cars, just because I can put down more power at the wheels while cornering. By no means is it a track car, and I would even be afraid to put it on a track, but I have a hunch that I could post similar numbers to a low to mid range Mustang or Camaro. But then again, I just use it as a daily driver that I occasionally pitch into a turn a little fast, or "accidentally" slip sideways a bit in the snow .

    I did google it when I went back to check what I had written, I typed in "BHP power" and it says brake horsepower on the first few that come up. Granted, some were wikipedia but others were from better sources, and they all said brake. I tried searching BHP but it's a company's 3-digit stock name (forget the real word for it). It is definitely break horsepower. Typing in blown horsepower on google just gives a bunch of links to people with engines that are "blown" and the numbers they are putting down for HP. I agree that AWD is better off the line, but will hurt in the end just do to the extra rotational mass and the transfer case etc.

    Rocky, I was talking about straight line. No doubt a car that has half the power of some older American cars will whoop them on a track, especially if the American car's running on nice wide tires out back, with poor handling suspensions.

    2002 civic ex. Gets me from point A to B. Oh and I find it funny when people start bit*** about American vs Import. So ^^^^ Haha. Mine gets a whopping 127hp and 33mpg and doesnt cost me a fortune for insurance!

    i think you need to adjust your contrast a little bit on your computer because it is flat black under the hood also....i know that anyone can post pics of an engine and say its theres...really it dont bother me at all that someone dont beleive me if its mine or not... i know i own it and thats fine...on the turbo call out.. did you see the part where i put my newest addition...the holset i showed isnt on in the other picture and is way bigger then it looks....that is th holset hx-40.. go look her up and compare..also what are you going to be running on that 63...do you have the block yet? just asking because i would look into getting the 4g64 swapping a 6bolt head and so on with it.. lot more stroke out of it....basically a stock 4g64 block is a 4g63 bored .40 over...
