Hood scoops look fucking dope...they are practical unlike the USELESS camero and firebird ones!!!!!!

a 20B in a mr2 would offset the 50/50 weight of the car and it would make it brutal to drive...could u even put a 20B in a mid-engine car??!?! i dont think u could..

I think drifting is dumb as fuck!! i only do it in a parking lot if i do it at all...drifting is one thing i hate

So true about the camaro and firebird ones, but no, I think a 13b would fit in an mr2, if not an mr-s.

and, drifting is NOT dumb as fuck it's an art form

I like in the rain best (or maybe snow). It's cheaper, quiter and you have a far better chance of keeping your driveline in 1 piece. I'm still the one causing it in the rain, I'm the one who buries my foot and cranks it over......I once tried to pull a rolling 540 in the rain, I was sooo close dammit. Made it to 500 when she decided to stall, shoulda kept my foot in 'er a bit more. Find me a large empty parking lot, and a first rain in a couple weeks and I'll try again. Last time it was on the street and I don't intend to do that again.

I've been goofing around with drifting since I got my FC (1-2 months), haven't been serious about learning cause I just got new rubber awhile ago. This weekend though I'm probably going to throw on a pair of my old phone dials in the rear with my nice hard pirrelli's and go at it.

It's definately something I'm seriously interested in but finding a place where you can make a mistake and not have to pay for it is hard.

p.s. Hood scoops are fine for a camaro or firebird, but I think a big fat front intercooler looks way better on an fc.
p.p.s. Does anyone drift their fc? If so, what is your technique?
What year of savannah????The original savannah came with the 12aTurbo(Which I regret not buying)It had 165 hp.
If I get another Rx I'm building a savannah copy.12a Turbo power next time.

It's not like you're rolling through a school zone at lunch time drifting through corners at 80mph.

I'm not sure how you're putting people in danger at 3:00 am in an empty parking lot. Of course it should only be done in places where you can gaurantee that you will not put other people in danger.

It was not first gen only, thank you very much!!! but they didn't give an engine that name until like '99, or '00 when they came out with a special edition fd gt-r, it had a 20b motor with three sequential turbo's and it put out 420 hp. They only made a few cars with the motors coming stock, but they made quite a few for race cars, and for tuner shops.......it was god...........

I saw some guy with an 88 or 87 turbo II the other day, I'm not too sure who it was but his car was red, and one exhaust pipe stuck out way more than the other one. It was funny. He had an american racing sticker on the side of his car, and had 14 inch wheels!hahahah thought he was hot shit...........

3 turbos now that is like kinda dumb if you ask me


the only reson for 3 turbo is make the power band be more fuller but still a tir turbo set up is not needed at all hell there is one supra that has tri and they test single and twin and then the tri

the tinw and tri were pretty much the same the single was not caues of the lag but the diff in lag between the tir and tiwn was nto hard ot find diff


aka for show and is not needed in any way

in way it kinda good and in way it is bad so all all in all it is noth worth the money to do it

Guys, I' got paid today so I have the cash to finish off my exhaust.

When I was at Midas getting my catback done the guy suggested I just use one of the small mufflers he had rather then going out and getting an RB presilncer or a similair product to do the rest. The mufflers he had looked just like the rx7.com silencer cat replacement. He seemed very confident that they would withstand the heat of a rotary.

So what do you think? Think it'll be ok? Or should I only go for it if he's willing to give me some sort of gaurantee?
