    car lovers thread

    Not sure if there's been one of these before but I figured i'd start a thread for the car fanatics! Post up pics of your rides and what's done to them. Ill start!

    Daily driver 2004 lexus is300 sportsdesign, future plans to boost it. Already have a turbo for it!

    Track car 1997 eclipse gsx, hx35, dsmlink, full 3 1/2in exhaust, cams, fmic, 880cc injectors, act clutch, fidanza flywheel, SMIM, bored throttle body, the list goes on. This is my baby, I built it all myself.

    I always thought that little is300 would be a badass sleeper with a turbo on it! Not 100% on this, but think it's the same engine block form supra's, so it's suppose to be able to hold pretty well.

    Old-2003 Mazda Protege5-Spec Stage 3 hybrid clutch/kartboy SS/ARP Headstuds/Cometic Headgasket/Crower rods /CP Pistons 8.5.1./RC 1000cc inj/T3TO4E turbo 63 A/R./Welded MSP LSD/Custom 3'' exh/FMIC/Haltech E6X stand alone. Lots of other cosmetics. But I broke 3rd gear shift forks every other month and broke my welded lsd. Transmission was a weak point and I parted the car out and sold it back to carmax.

    Current Daily-2005 Dodge Neon Srt-4-Eibach Pro kit/Spec Stage 1 Clutch/3bar map.tip sensors/Maxxfab Side exit exhaust/3'' o2 housing/FM wastegate/Granatelli Wires/Boomba Short shifter/AEM Uego/AEM Boost guage/Scangauge/Diablo Sport predator w/custom tune/N2MB WOT Box w/2step. It is a fun car, never had a problem with it but Im ready for real wheel drive.

    Re: car lovers thread

    Goodfella you are right, basically same motor with obviously different internals and heads are slighty different. The only real flaw is the trannies are weak in the is =/

    Jomo those little skittles are badass. Same concept as the dsm basically. I had a 95 gst (front wheel drive eclipse) and that was roughly 300hp. Traction in that thing was terrible so I parted it out too. You got any pics of your cars? I can't upload anymore pics from my phone or I would!

    Had countless other cars. I am a big mazda fan. Love the way they handle. Mx-3's/Miata's I have had them all.

    Re: car lovers thread

    I've always wanted to do like a miata with an ls swap in it. Little cars are badass! I've had a fair share of cars as well audi a4, stealth r/t, bmw 328, and a nissan titan! I'm considering possibly selling the is300 and getting a sti! I have a thing for those things exhaust tone, makes me wet.

    LS miata would be sick. I would have gotten into honda's more often but where I lived they were being stolen left and right. At your school, out of your driveway when you were home. I didn't want to deal with that shit.

    the 03 zo6 is the one that got the kick in power to 405. they put down 360rwhp (ive seen it) and with just drag radials a buddy went 11.91 @ 119.89......

    ****ing sick for a factory NA car. that will also hang with ferrari's and pretty much everything under the sun on a race track.
