Nice, Is this the car from Cardomain that uses two DSM sidemount intercoolers in series?

Update,

Due to me doing a bad job on tightening down my drivers side front wheel the end result was two broken studs. I decided it was time for a front brake upgrade. I had some choices now, In my parts bins I had a set of Expo knuckles/hubs and also 1990 Galant GS Hubs. I tried the Expo hubs and it just didnt seem to go together right for my car so I went with the Galant GS Knuckle/Hub/Calipers. Originally the Galant uses bottom mount Tie rods so I reamed out the top with the help of Mr Slowdsm. Thanks! Everything after went nicely together. As far as the galant caliper is concerned I noticed that it is different from a 1G dsm. It is missing the bar that goes around the front. I dont know what its called but reminds me of a retainer people use after having braces. Anybody else notice the difference?

Didn't spring for 10.85" GVR4 rotors and calipers? You should certainly feel a stopping difference with them. But they are HEAVY.

Never-ending,

Well after I finished up the brake swap it turns out the bearings were bad, so I went to my friends house to use his press. Everything worked out great but another $100 spent on the bearings plus four new seals. oh well.

More recently I was able to install MAF-T and S-AFC. SLOWDSM tuned it to 10 lbs, I swear 10 LBS Tuned in this setup feels so much stronger than the 15lbs I was running on stock MAF.

I had to re-orient my battery for the new Setup. I upgraded the IC pipes to a larger size as well. The translator box is hidden under the Air Filter. Also I went with the 1G dsm intake pipe to keep a stock look. The 1G dsm spark plug cover goes good with the color of my car too!

I took the car to the track last night and had a best time of

1/4 Mile.........14.732
60' .........2.425
MPH .........94.59

i did 5 passes trying different things,
My slowest times 16's and 17's using first gear, burning halfway through third.

My best times were starting from second gear.

I guess it did ok, It was my first time ever going to the track,

The car was running 10 LBS Tuned the other day, but was still running rich for some reason.

But I had fun, alot of people liked the car, things being said were, we hardly see these anymore, or WTF? haha

I dont see any reason to build this car any further I hardly have any traction as it is. I think it is a great street car tho. The only reason I would build any further would be to put in a solid rear axle for AWD. then it would be a beast! But I really dont have plans to do so.

For now I will focus on getting the car looking the way I want. Im still going withe 90's styling and am always scouring ebay for new old stock parts, I recently came upon a new smoked hood bug deflector shield! wow, I can hardly remember when those were cool on cars!

nice times dude and must been cool runing that time, you might have to cut some airflow out of the WOT on the translator box usually one or to clicks counterclock wise to lean it out a little but with out a log your not sure, if you have a wideband in the beastie you can tune with that
