That's a sweet price for 275s "toe-bee" !!
I'm really tempted to order a set of tires for the back, but I told myself no more money on the car.... we'll see how long that lasts.

Whoever came up with the phrase out of site out of mind is a jackass! I'm still just as bad.

Do you guys think one of those FMICs would be worthwhile without doing a FFI?

I'm trying to decide what to do next... I dunno. Probably would be worthwhile to just do some ghetto PVC hardpipes for in the meantime and then spend money elsewhere for now I am thinking.
Maybe a fuel computer? I'm guessing best bet would be to get some proper guages and go from there??? Shim the wastegate a bit after I get everything else installed.

Input def. appreciated, cause I CAN NOT make up my mind!

get real hardpipes. the stock IC is fine as long as you have hardpipes. only reason im considering getting a FMIC is becuase of the FFI.

also, gauges are good. Megan Racing has decent 52mm gauges for US$45 each from 935motorsports. i was considering getting them, but i want 60mm gauges damnit!

on another note: datsun = gone!

I have a new theory for the Supra, if it's running, for gods sake LEAVE IT ALONE! lol
But seriously, I dunno.. I know Bob is looking forward to running his hardpipes cause Ryan told him that was probably his biggest noticable jump.

sweet news about the datsun!! SO I guess if you sold it yourself.... you should buy yourself a case of beer

I know the stock IC is fine... but I figure one day if I ever do want/need a bigger one, then gotta scrap the previous pipes. But I suppose a larger core with the stock turbo may just create unwanted lag. I dunno. And full hardpipes with all the hardware for 300 bucks is not bad at all... maybe I will do that.
Definetly will be getting a boost and EGT gauge hopefully soon as well.

$300? ya, get them. thats probably cheaper than buying your own bends and building it yourself.

well the biggest power adder you cna do you your car are these very thing's

hard pipes or at lest zap em up with zip tie's and reaplce as much wiht mealte you cna go to home depo and make set for very cheep

3rd thing is afpr and sfac then pump her to 14 psi that give you alot more power

and then run about 14 degrees timing and runing fully 94 ocatin at thsi point no more 91


as for the stock ic you tend to notice more persure drop as you hit around 14 psi or higher

and most of all fword faceing many give thottle reson and higher boost in some case's depend on how bad you pipeing was befor


all around there alot of things you cna do to get more power it just how much do you want are you goig to stay stock turbo add juice ect


i have built my car for every thgini needed i have not left out one thign yet the onyl tign that is missing is nos that i plan on gettign as soon as i find kit that i like

wiht no2 i think i might get very close to the 500 mark wiht nice 50 to 75 shot

don't worry my fuet is good for what i am doing and so is my engien if i use stock psiotn then i whould nto shoot no2 but since i do whyt he fuck not


but for the love of god peoepel fix your bloody nock sencer

stupid snow... i spent a good hour and a half digging out my car, and then getting all of the snow (which has been packed down over the past week by my families 3 trucks) out of my driveway, take the supra for a drive up the road, come back, have lunch, then drive to work, only to find out that as i pull up the snow starts falling again. I had someone come pick up my car, and take it home, where it will probably sit for another 4 or 5 days...... stupid snow!

Toby - goooooooodbye datsun! says:

Paradox says:

Toby - goooooooodbye datsun! says:

Paradox says:

Toby - goooooooodbye datsun! says:
then it took my about 500 m just to get up to 4 becuase the tire was spinning
