Sitting here at the house, Need to Install:
Nismo 555cc Injectors, NOS wet kit 60 shot, Greg Dupree Down Pipes, Greg Dupree Sub-Frame Bushing Mod, Suspension Techniques Sway Bars, Tein adjustable tension rods.
I think that about sums it up. There are a few other things in the works right now, it is a constant work in progress. It may be nice to let it sit for a while and work on the WRX. aZiator

Nice list.

That's good for low-12's high-11's off the bottle? Did you upgrade your turbo's? or are they still stock?

Also, were you the Red 300zx that was on Hales Dyno and running 13.30's?

Z's look damn good, don't they? That's a classic sports car.

The new ones look okay too, but the X35 is where it's at....

Yeah they really are nice cars. I wouldn't get a 96 just because it went to OBDII and there isnt a computer upgrade for them. 94 or 95 is really the best year.

It is good for around 12.4 in current form. I had an extremely large boost leak that I found just before I put it in storage, so i will be tearing into it when i get back to find the leak.

I think I will have a lot of fun modding the WRX, there are lots of similar mods to do on both cars.

No, my car has never been west of Utah, where it currently sleeps in storage until I get back from Korea. What have you done to your Camaro?? A friend of mine at flight school had a 01 SS, that thing was fast. Not quite fast enough though

Just some rods, pistons, heads, solid roller cam, intake, *cough cough* alot of spray *cough cough*.

My list of parts on order/shipping/need to be ordered/in my garage -

S2 LS6 Heads
Holley Intake (Port Matched, Flow Matched)
TR Solid Roller Cam (specs loosely determined)
JE Forged 12:1 Comp Pistons
Lunati Forged Rods
ARP Main Studs
ARP Head Studs
Copper Head Gaskets
TNT N2O/Fuel Solinoids
NOS Foggers
200 shot

That's the main of it, I also have all the supporting hardware. I don't anticipate the car being done till mid-June, and I don't anticipate it hitting the track until late-June, till tuning is finished. That means I will be making a trip to Hale's dyno... for joy!

Unfortunatley all the pics i had of it were deleted when I made my transition to another operating system.

I'll get some here sooner or later. I'll be taking pics and video of the car when it's being worked on, and I'll also take some pics before I take it in to get painted.

It should be a fun car for another year. Debating on whether to get a Supra or Vette for an Auto-X toy and turn the Camaro to Drag only. Decisions, decisions .

Me? Viper? No way! Too expensive! I can afford a used Supra or a used Corvette, I can not afford a used Viper on the other hand.

I'm not sure, I think greg has a few vids of my car.

Scott, is that an SLP SS? and get the Supra, nothing like a 6 cylinder showing those big V8s how to do it. Plus Japanese cars are usually built much better and when buying used that is always important. Dont want to have to worry about replacing a worn out interior because it rattles over every bump.

All SS's are made by SLP. It's mostly just asthetics.

As far as the import comment, there is nothing more full of **** in the world. Sorry. You do realize that almost all USDM Japanese cars are built in the US??? The thing that determines a car's reliabilty and it's ride are all in the maitience. I've riden in import cars that have rattled, I've been in American cars that have rattled. It's all a myth.

Eh, maybe I should build a Twin Turbo Corvette with a 434 ci Solid Roller LS1...... Then I can go down to Texas 2k3 and woop on some dawgs......

Edit : At the National Supra meet in Texas this year, 2 C5 Corvettes with stock IRS's faced off in the final. They had run the quickest ET's and beat out all of the dawgs. They were 422's with a 150 shot. One was SW's and the other was a new one that had less then 100 miles on it. SW's vette took the win with a 9.78 @ 147.

Domestic car interiors usually are pretty cheap when compared to import interiors though. Not saying they'd rattle, just that the quality of the plastics, and the fit and finish isn't usually as good.

Just drove a 2002 Mustang GT last week. The dash look like it was made out of the same hard plastic they make those little kiddy pools out of. The gaps between the panels were huge as well. A base model Honda Civic or Toyota Corolla has a better interior than that.

Actually now that I mentioned that, I sat in the new Civic SI the same day as the Mustang, and it has a pretty cool interior. The steering wheel was really nice, and the shifter is up on the dash rally style. I wouldn't want to buy one, but I just though the shifter was cool. To bad it was in the showroom, I wanted to test it out.

Have you ever sat in a Supra or an NSX? I see no differences in interior or "refinment". In fact, the Supra's interior looks like the older LT1 Camaro Style interior. The only interior's that I liked were the ones in the 300zx and the RX-7. Mostly because of the way it was set up towards the driver, not the passanger.

But, I guess when someone gets their ass handed to them on the track or auto-x course, you can tell the person that beat you on how shoty their interior is, and how your A/C switch is in a more erganomical location. Maybe, you just might want to challenge them to a door slam contest to further your point.

I have sat in a Supra(no NSX ) . While the layout may look similar to the old camaro, the quality of materials used is much higher(for one, both of these cars have leather, the plastics, carpet, etc, are nicer as well).

Don't get so defensive. You'll notice I wasn't saying the Supra was a better car simply because of the interior. I was just supporting aZiators comment about the lower grade interiors. In fact, I'd take the vette over the Supra any day.

yeah, dont mean to hit a nerve...just comparing the supra to the vette. I have yet to see a 7 year old vette that was in as good of shape as a supra the same age. yes, some import cars are put together in the states, but I know for a fact that my Z was completely assembled in japan, and i think that all the supras were to (but dont quote me). I think most car enthusiasts that have been around both will agree that domestic cars have always had a hard time putting together a well fitting interior that didn't fall apart after a while. I am not knocking any cars, I love them all!!

OK, I will chime in here, not to be taken the wrong way either, but interior fit and finish is all just personal preference in the end anyway. I mean do you prefer the lean, refined lines of the Japanese companies, or the beefy, bulgng lines of the American cars? It all boils down to what one perceives as "quality" and "pleasing", and possibly what they are used to.

For me, I am on the same side as aZiator and Eby, and in my experiences, through all the cars my family has owned, the best interiors were in the Japanese cars, heck, the interior qaulity in my '87 Accord was better than my '98 Dakota, IMO.

As for the comment about USDM Japanese cars being built here, I believe aZiator is correct. The only ones I know of that are assembled here are the run of the mill ones (Accords, Camrys, Tundras, Legacy's, etc.) And AFAIK, even some of those come from overseas. But typically, the enthusiasts cars, like the MR2's, RX-7's, Z's, Supra's, the new MR2 spyder's, NSX's, etc... are/were all built entirely in Japan. (case in point, they are still building the RX-7 and Supra over there , just not importing them here)

There, I think I put enough fuel on the fire now.

Mitsubishi builds most if not all of their current cars in the US. Nissan also builds many of their car in the US. A lot of the japaness comapany's build thier cars here unless their some sort of rare more exotic vehicle.
