Flooring that sum' bitch T88 powered 2JZ under the hood and hearing the echo under the 200th street overpass, you better hold onto your nuts son because you're about to be boosted into next week! Shit!!!

Interesting. I don't really dig on the power delivery in my STi. Yeah, it's fast I guess. Good on highways and whatnot but it suffers down low and falls off fast up top. The ITR is so completely different and wonderful(yeah, I said wonderful) in the way it connects you to the car and the power delivery. The modulation and control is far better than any car I've ever driven(beside some P cars)

....a little off topic but fuck it!

You have to remember that your STI is a horizontally opposed boxer motor and as such, will have unique challenges and characteristics as engineering and physics dictate the outcomes.

Your ITR on the other hand, is a completely different motor. The two aren't a fair comparison. Let alone the AWD vs. FWD layout.

Modulation and control - N/A (in most cases) is best.

Oh for sure. Was more comparing with owned cars; like westopher with a FWD turbo GTI and a RWD N/A E36. To make it fair I'll compare 230whp N/A ITR with a 315whp turbo'd ITR, which I drove years ago, and I'd still take the N/A based on power delivery and responsiveness.

VK45 swap into the Pathfinder, along with a properly working low range, locking diff, etc., etc.

But, frankly, even that probably wouldn't convince me to keep this thing past the last of the snow melt this year. I need to get back into a good ol' lowered car.

back from the dead... not a mod on my car though, but instead taking the 5.0L coyote engine out of my mustang and putting it into...

Good bump.

My previous post stated I wanted to Bore my 3.5L to 4.2L and go Twin Turbo with a 6 Speed swap.

I've shifted directions now, I plan on keeping the stock VQ in the car for atleast two more years. Within that period this is the goal:



Gonna be sending my FX down to AutoExplosion in California for a widebody Conversion.



After that work is complete, I'll probably start the process of getting together the pieces from a QX56, so I can swap in the VK56.

Basically take the 5.6L v8 and 7 speed transmission out of one of these:



And pack it into my FX.

It's interesting that others just threw out crazy ideas, and that's great, but once I get a crazy idea into my head, I can't stop thinking about it until I actually do it.

So although these are dream mods for me, it's also very likely that they will likely actually happen, since I'm out of my mind.

Horrific.

Before I started driving a diesel 1 ton daily, I had a 1/2 ton Ram with the hemi 5.7 and it was almost the same mileage as my FX.

The diesel isn't really comparable because I tow a trailer around most of the time.

Nice thread bump. Here's me last year.

STI is gone and in good hands. Now I have a 4Runner(not a Taco as planned). Would still like the TRD charger but really don't care for worse fuel economy and the premium fuel requirement.

Might be picking up a lil' sumpin sumpin this weekend and all it would need is storage space.
