Low 9's are you sure? It is sooo hard to run in the 9's. Show some vids & I will believe you.spadez81 said:This is an easy question, if you have a 5-speed against a stock 3000(you didn't say if it was the turbo version or not) and if you know how and when to shift properly, then there is definitely light. Coming from the import scene I know what those cars are capable of producing with mods, and it's not pretty. I have a buddy who has a twin turbo AWD version running low 9s, and still street legal. But a N/A version stock may run about mid-15s because of the weight

I don't have footage, but I can tell you this guy invested roughly $80,000 on the setup, which consists of: pistons, rods, crank, cams, 2 HKS turbos(Forgot which kind), fuel management upgrade w/ pcm, Fireball ignition, differential swap, etc...The list goes on, I just can't remember eveything he's done, but I can tell you that the car pulls nearly 900hp @ 24psi. Are you convinced yet?Js281GT said:Low 9's are you sure? It is sooo hard to run in the 9's. Show some vids & I will believe you.
That is very true, but keep in mind that mill in the Supra has unlimited capabilities, meaning you can have 1000+hp on tap and still can drive it everyday. But the engine in the 3000 is a little more complexed and not as strong a motor as the Supra, therefore it's gonna cost you more to get these types of numbers and still worry about if you can even use it on a daily basis, which is what my friend has been fighting since the transformation. But on the track it's an animalSeph said:80 grand? Craps, I'd buy myself a Supra with that and have enough for over 1000 HP EASY!
You'll lose. My friend has a '95 SL. Think he has CAI, short shift, 7lb flywheel, stage 3 clutch, and no cat, he's beaten Corvettes, 5.0s, any V6 Mustang, 4.6L, Cobras, ect. He ran a 8 somethin at the 1/8 in town.It's not the turbo model. I don't thing he's ever really ran it that hard anyhow. I'll just have to get him to take it to the track when it opens back up.
They are front wheel drive.Is the base model one front or rear wheel drive?
Actually you're right. But for the last few production years, they all were AWD and those are nothing to play withDom said:You'll lose. My friend has a '95 SL.

They really pick up at 80. They move like you wouldn't believe at over 100mph.
