holy crap my probe was dirty

Well I decided to clean up the probe because it was filthy. Still isn't spotless the paint is in bad shape. I also think my car might of originally been red. I found a place where some paint chipped and there was red paint under it.

Some before and after pics.

and now for both my probe and truck


Between washing it and putting back on the actual tire and taking that damn doughnut off it looks much better IMO.

haha nah this will be my new dd once the damn title comes in. My new job I just got is a good ways away so i'll be keepin this car running. However when the current motor dies i'll just replace it with one of the turbo'd motors out of the GT model of that year. However upgrade the turbo. The stock one was small as hell. Talk about a sleeper lol no one would expect it. I saw a probe like mine beat out a 350z. There was also another one I saw that ran a 13.12 given thats now super fast, but for a probe thats pretty damn cool.

Re: holy crap my probe was dirty

Whoa no ****, Probe GT's are turbo'ed?

I didn't know that. My friend Ben has a Probe GT and I always make fun of him because he drives something called a probe. So those cars actually have potential? Always looked at it as kind of the black sheep from Ford. Even ricers go with the focus over them. Lol

Well the 89-92 probe gt's a turbo'd. The 93-97 aren't but they do have the 24v 2.5L V6. There is one on the probe forum I visit that has a turbo'd 94(i think) gt 2.5 v6 and he just dyno tuned it and got 504whp and 444wtq.

They are just like any car. As long as you take care of everything it wont have any problems. Given they did when they first came out with both the first gen and 2nd gen, but all cars are like that the first year for a new car or redesigned car.

If you decide to get one take it to a trusted mechanic and have him look over it. It's the best thing to do when your buying used from someone you dont know.

Re: holy crap my probe was dirty

The sad thing is, with the turbo probes, the stock turbo from my turbo coupe was an upgrade, and that turbo was barely enough for the 2.3L in the car...

Yeah the turbo for the gt was small. Only like a 35hp difference from the GL, but with an upgraded turbo and a few other things you can see some decent power out of the 2.2L

Re: holy crap my probe was dirty

maybe only 35hp, but its a large amount of torque

i wish i didnt blow my stock turbo up, or id sell the compressor housing, wheel, and backing plate to a probe guy

sadly, up until the present day evo and wrx/sti's, turbo'd cars usually had a really weak turbo from the factory. just like the turbo from a 90-94 dsm(14b) is a huge upgrade over the 95-99 turbo(t25), because they put in a smaller turbo to please those who didnt like lag and didnt ever run through the gears.

and whats even sadder, the stock probe turbo is a huge upgrade for any honduh.

You ever see the stock turbo from a probe? its too small for a honda even. Its a Warner Ishi turbo, and i believe the compressor a/r is something like .38, yeah

ill take a picture of my old Warner Ishi that blew in comparison to something else , so you can see how small it is, then think that its an upgrade for the probes...

Re: holy crap my probe was dirty

Yeah its a small *** turbo here's some pics of the stock turbo.




as you can see not much to it.

Also since y'all have some good insite on turbos. If I decide to swap in a gt motor, but want to upgrade the turbo what would be the best one to go with? I'm not looking for insane power. I'd be happy to see roughly 175hp and 200+ tq. Not looking for a speed demon just something fun to toy with.

Re: holy crap my probe was dirty

almost looks identical to the 9b turbos out of a 3Kgt vr4.

also there was a guy on here by the name of DarkEntity a while ago. he had a probe i believe with a KJZE or some **** motor out of a mazda that made around 170ish hp, and a few boltons and i remember he was running mid 14's. not too bad, cheapo motor and a 75shot of nitrous and bolt ons and you could have quite a sleeper there.
