Wink Sewer pipes

When the dorks have the grapefruit shooter tips, ya thats a joke. Now, like mine, when there is a 3' sewer pipe going all the way up, and there's a t1-01 on the end of it, this mean's GN's are in trouble! J/K little comp. humor. Mine was made by ATR (Advance thermal research)... Yes the Big GN after market company made it for the GSX! And, yes it was LOUD when I touched the floor

BTW, my daily driver isn't particularly fast - but it is fun and cheap. 1998 Mustang GT with just a few of the critical bolt ons (gears, exhaust, intake, etc).

Haha, nice. Hey, I don't mind being the benchmark. Pretty much everyone from GN's to Camaros to every street punk in a slammed Integra talks about a Mustang they beat at one time or another. So I take it as a compliment that my marque is something of a legend that everyone shoots for.

Good looking Mustang there....

pony klr - DSM = DIAMOND STAR MOTORSPORTS (Mits, Eagle etc.) Maybe not Motorsports...it might just be Motors....But anyway, you get the idea.

I have the stock turbo on mine but I am running 17 pounds of boost....It spools up REALLY nice....I have like all the bolt on items:

R*SR 3" Cat Back Turbo Exhaust
Pace Setter Headers
Injen Intake System
Apexi 3" Down Pipe
550cc HKS Injectors
3000 GT VR4 Twin Turbo Feul Pump
EXTREME Motorsports Boost Control (17 psi)
Apexi Turbo Timer
AEM TRU Cam Gears (Timing advanced 1.5 degrees)
MAGNACOR 8mm Spark Plug Wires
NGK Iridium Plugs (1 degree cooler than stock)
V&T Performance SUICIDE Clutch
EXTREME Motorsports Short/Bump Shifter

Thats about all of it for right now.

I believe it is just "motors", but no one really cares what is what. Heres my short list.
Custom exhaust, 3" all the way, gutted cat, N1 muffler
Brode Intercooler Piping
MBC(was on there when i bought the car, never sure what kind it is)
Accel 8mm wires, NGK plugs, the "7's"
Ported 2g Exhaust Manifold
K&N, custom intake.
Walbro 255lb Fuel Pump, with the 550 injectors.
Thats about it for performance.

Nice!!!! Looks like you need some sways to get the inside tire pack on the ground. Love that car. Drives like a go kart. I see a cage and head rest. Clean that thing out and make it a full time track car!!!

I have the thickest sways and stiffest springs that I can run and still use the car as a dailey driver. Hopefully it will become a dedicated track car some day then I'll gut the interior and put the car on a real diet. If anything the suspension may be too stiff.
