Thumbs up 3 rice kills, 1 day

On my way home from school, i see a green prelude dropped with a fart cannon on teh back end.... with gold rims and gold sponser stickers... i noticed this car from Import Face off.

we were on the interstate, i got on the side he yelled if i wanted to run... so we did. I pulled on him right off teh bat, and never was he to catch up. Prolly got 3 cars on him before traffic built up.

Tonight, leaving work, i raced my friends integra, with a b16c motor... gave him a 5 car start, came back and still won. then we did from a dig, and wasn't even a gimme.

After, on my way home, a 02 accord v6 pulls up witha body kit and dual fart cannons, i asked if he wanted to run a quick run, he agreed. he launched on 2, but i managed to catch up and wipe him.

For all v6 owners..... get an sct tuner xcal2... its a world of difference.

Re: 3 rice kills, 1 day

What I hate is when MFer's take off from a light and don't tell you nothing, like they expect you to know they want to race or something, and when you catch up to them their smiling and laughing at you like they wupped your *** or something. This has happen to twice in the last couple of weeks. A couple of weeks ago someone in a 05/06 Mustang GT did it to me, I guess I should have just figured he wanted to race. Then yesterday some stupid ***** in one of those Mercury Marquis (the crown vics) or whatever their called did this to me, and you can't hardly hear that car accelerate. So by the time I realized she was trying to race me I caught up with her to check, her and her husband(I guess it was her husband)were laughing at me like they just beat some punk in a Mustang or something. I rolled my window down and signaled for her to race me from the next light, she didn't say nothing, just Kept smiling like she thinks she got me, and when we get to the light I look over at her and she busted a right turn.

Re: 3 rice kills, 1 day

All these cars you talk about are front wheel drives, probably just dumb kids with welded on coffee can mufflers and a cold air intake they got for 10 bucks on ebay. I know both worlds, I love my 'Stang, no doubt, she's a classic and a beaut, but my Eclipse GSX owns my Mach, keeps it in check with an iron fist. I own my Mach in the quarter on 4 cylinders and pump gas, give me 100 octane and I give 30lbs of boost, and I'll go pick up dinner before my dad gets there in my 'Stang. It's all about true spirit competition. Man, I used to rag ricers all the time, rag the **** outta them. I still rag ricers, but don't ever mess with a tuner, or you're likely to be embarassed. Go search for a Eclipse GSX/Talon TSi/Evo or 3000GT VR4/Dodge Stealth RT...or if you're lucky enough (as I am, right here in Longview) to run into an R34 Skyline, if you pull one off on them, then you may brag, just because they're imports doesn't mean they won't own your ***, I had the same opinion once.

No. They can't be. All imports are slow. PERIOD!

They run off rice and are gay.

The only thing gayer than an import is a Jeep. Or a Jeep with Tom Cruise giving Richard Simmons head in it, but you already knew that.

dude, you just made the rest of us real DSMers look bad. post up this 30psi setup, id like to see how "t00ner"iffic it really is. prolly a T25 or a 14b owner with some 550's and a safcII who thinks hes hot ****. thomas91169 on dsmtuners, dsmtalk, sacramento-dsm, dsmlink forums, you name it. ive gone through the dsm world already, im the only one of the group(10 other dsm's) who was able to break the habit, and lemme tell you, being able to make it to the track to run even 14's beats having a car thats 12 second capible that wont run past the onramp. whats funnier is i can out-tech every other one of them when it comes to dsm talk. they still have no idea what do when it comes to tuning, i end up tuning most their cars, be it dsmlink or the ever crappy safc/palm logger.

skylines are crap.

3si's (3000gt/stealths) are garbage.

only other import car worth mentioning is a supra, and theyre freeway/dyno queens, finding one is a rarity, running into one thats modded is a god-send, especially if you have something to put them in their place(like my old dsm). then again, im in cali, so unless theyre a demo/show vehicle without a leash, theyre limited to what they can do before its basically going to get reffed the second it leaves the driveway.

now learn to drive the mach, and do a few bolt ons and it will trounce the "Iron Fist" of the gsx like it was its *****, still make it to the track every time, and still be just as driveable as the day it left the dealership. cant say that about a dsm, the more you mod them, the crappier they feel.

Re: 3 rice kills, 1 day

I have a few things to say.

1. I'm thinking about getting that chip, it sounds awsome, and I like how it'll give you better MPG.. but I don't know if I'll have extra money to get it.

2. I also ****ing it when you are at a red light and when it goes green the guy next to you just takes off and you're like WTF M8? Then I gotta play catch up, but at this time in my life I don't even try. Most of the time I just sit there and let them do the first move, and even if they do take off I don't race.. I dunno, I just don't do it anymore.

I'm saying don't bash imports, everybody in a Mustang wants to bash an import for some reason. Some imports, off the floor, head to head, are faster than Mustangs. (i.e. Nissan 350z) Some aren't. Some are grabbed up by little boys who want "to pull hot chicks" with their 4" mufflers and neon underglow. Get some game, and get a real car. A Mustang is a real car, I'm a FoMoCo fool, with a '69 Mach 1. But I'm also the driver of a very, very fast import.

Re: 3 rice kills, 1 day

i bash imports.............i've yet to lose to one. but i've just run the right ones, b/c we have a few on juice and a few turboed ones in town that would ream me. i have been fortunate enough to not run into those yet.



the closest run i've had with an import was a newer civic si (04/05) it was a hatch model 6-speed. he said he had nitrous but wasnt using it he was door to door until he went to 4th, the i walked away. from a dig i put about a car on him and sat there till he hit 4th again, the lost ground

Factory Eclipse GSX ran a 14.9 off the showroom, that's single turbo, 4 cyl and AWD. It is amazing how much faster a car will run a 1/4 mile when it isn't spinning tires. Bone stock 3000 is FWD and NT, yeah it is slow. VR4 is twin turbo, v6 and AWD, they're pretty fast. The Skyline GTR has beat out the Porsche GT3 on Nurburgring for years...that's Porsche's own house. You're calling them crap because they come from Japan??? Which engine lasts longer??? Oh that's right, American engines average about 120k-180k. 90% of Jap engines go 200k miles plus, constantly. I don't like a Honda, but to rag a Mits. because it is Jap is crazy. If you come ride in my Eclipse, and are completely unimpressed, I'll sign over my GMC Sierra RST to you, and you can have something pretty and fast to haul your cars with. But I'm keeping my Mach and my Eclipse.

Mitsubishi are not very reliable car, and 350Z's are not even faster than Mustang GT's, EVO's and STI's probably. I like skylines, when I was into imports that was my dream car, but know I'd rather have a Porshe. R34 GTR < 911 Turbo.

Eh, I dunno, I've driven every one of them and the Evo's and STi's outperform the 350 hands down, the new Stangs are just heavy sleds, but with a supercharger, can be made into mean machines too.

I know, I'm saying Mustang GT's are faster than 350Z's, and EVO's and STI's are more than likely going to outrun a Mustang GT.

Re: 3 rice kills, 1 day

Well, I'm saying there is a world of difference between a fast import and rice. Anyone that can pull real numbers out of 4 little holes gets respect from me...

However, the other 98% of the punks out there that have see the Slow and the Curious too many times are a completely different story.

None the less, while a "tuner" car might could be a dyno queen or run some decent times at the track, I will still leave those to the "tuners" and stick with my V8. Better sound, better potential.

Re: 3 rice kills, 1 day

Definitely better sound, I totally agree. Better potential, eh...depends how you look at it. V8, more power, heavier, sucks more gas. I have both. 2 V8 performance oriented cars, and a 4 banger, totally performance oriented, i have rattle canned primer on my Eclipse to stop rust, yet I've got nearly 12k under the hood. But then again, I also like the whoosh and pssst of the turbo'd engine, and an open wastegate sounds bad to some, insane to others, I personallylike it, drops boost creep to a minimum as well.

I agree with Thomas. Even though I've never rider in a fast Mitsu, just peeky Honda's.

everyone with dsm's who i have given rides said at first "it doesnt feel that fast" and when i told them, "umm, that was 80 at the end of 2nd" theyre like "whoa, that **** is smooth". my buddy with the srt4 is the only one whose been in the car through 3rd, he though 2nd was nice but wasnt impressed, till i took him through the top of 3rd and he was astonished. said he might be able to stick around through 2nd but once i get into 3rd itd be over.

i have a few runs lined up come test n tune, couple dsm guys think they can take out teh cobra. its all fun IMO i dont mind a little competition between freinds and believe overall competition is what makes the world turn. now all i need to buy is a redfire helmet.

But then again, I also like the whoosh and pssst of the turbo'd engine, and an open wastegate sounds bad to some, insane to others, I personallylike it, drops boost creep to a minimum as well.
That airplane turbine sound I will leave to the airports. Sounds like **** to me, but I am one of the weird few. However, I would gladly take a TT V8 over a TT I4 anyday...

BTW, when you are talking about making power...who cares about sucking more gas? lol

With me driving? Sure...with a real driver? Probably not unless the engine blew at half track. lol I believe TT 03/04 cobras are running 9s these days...I can only imagine what a nicely built TT Z06 or the like would run with anyone but me behind the wheel.

i agree. the Eaton or any Roots Style whine is 100x more evil sounding than any turbo scream ive heard. everytime i get on it and hear the blower i get all giddy inside, big fat grin on my face, 8 cylinders roaring through a linear powerband that sticks you in your seats from 2k all the way to redline in every gear(ok maybe not 6th, cause thats suicidal).

plus theres no annoying sound everytime i shift. a BOV so wears out its welcome by the end of the first month, you learn ways to drive without making it go off, by holding it at a certain rpm for a second before you shift, so any built up pressure in the intake is used by the motor, and the vacuum drops under -10hg so the bov doesnt make a noise. or driving under -10hg because any more and all you hear is this loud WHOOSH as the turbo tries to build boost, and everyone around you knows youre actually using throttle to get up to 35mph. i dunno, i just never liked the laggy feel and torqueless-ness of it, and that was on a pesky e16g. maybe why im so addicted to torque now, love driving the cobra, so much power to just move around traffic and get up to speed without any throttle input whatsoever, i thought the same about the GT, but its a whole nother world comparing maybe 300lbs/tq N/A to 440lbs/tq F/I with a roots style insta-bewster.

the only way i see myself going back to a DSM is for a track only 1g awd. fully built FFWD 2.4L stroker, full headwork, Shep Tranny, GT42r, Nitrous, running methanol. after seeing the **** my freinds go through, a daily driven 400+hp dsm (1g or 2g) is just not feasable. though id just as soon(if the GT doesnt sell, since it aint worth what i still owe on it) build that up for track purposes, and leave the nicer car(The Cobra) for daily driving.
