Hello from new member 3 Years, 3 Months ago Karma: 2
Hello, I thought I'd introduce myself as I just joined your board.

I live in Ontario Canada and currently own a 91 Turbo with Gen 3 swap, 3071 & quite a few mods.Previous to this I had an '89 S/C which I loved and learned a lot from working on it.

Oddly enough I used to live in Coney Island (C.Down) but moved in the late 70's before I had a driver's licence.

I will say that your members are blessed with some of the nicest roads and country side anywhere for driving! With those nice twisties is there a big emphasis on high torque for setups?

We've been through one of the longest and most brutal winters in 25 years here and it is still hanging on with more snow forecast. I can't wait for it to warm up and to get the car out again!

Anyway all the best and safe motoring

Tony

Thanks for the welcome guys.
-got92tubby that's a very nice looking car you have there & looks in amazing condition.
-TurboD yes I do remember the rain and lots of it LOL.


The S/C I sold a few years ago when I got the Turbo-it had the HKS pulley, grunt box & big throttle body.

I don't know how to post pics on here yet but the turbo has the K.O.3071, 3" exhaust, TMIC, Sard 800s, PowerFC, water/meth inj, & Gen 2&3 3SGE N/A cams (252I & 244EX) as an experiment. I'm trying to run the least amount of cam to help flow but keep low end too.

Thanks Infamous.
Winters seem to have been especially bad this year all over, one of those cyclical things I think. All the guys on our board are itching to get out again when the snow melts and the salt is washed off the roads.
Got the Sebrings from DB8 on the U.S board. Do you guys deal with him at all? He's based in Japan and has a lot of authentic JDM goodies & wheels.

Thanks. I wish I had half the porn that you have under the bonnet that's a pretty impressive list of parts. What kind of power are you making. Kcd for the pics of a very interesting setup.

Yeah DB8 used to post on here though haven't seen anything from him on here in a while. I bought a few things from him in the past and I think a couple of others members have dealt with him also.

It took years to get to this stage. Little bits here and there so as not to give the wife a heart attack all at once LOL.

I haven't been to the dyno with the TMIC & new setup yet but I'll let you know.

Know the feeling it's easy to get carried away buying loads of parts on forums and eBay and the likes

Look forward to seeing how it dynos

Something for the turbo guys.

Updated link with some new mods. Dyno was on a Dynapack 4000. Peaked @ 18.5 psi.
tapering to 17.5psi.

Now running twin 3sge N/A intake cams (252/9.8 lift) & a re-tune on the PFC.
Injecting a 50/50 Meth & water mix for safety. The cams seemed to help with bottom end torque this time & makes for a fun street setup.
