Two words...cold air. Laf.







Oh yeah, another one comes to mind....RICE!!!




Okay okay, I retract the previous rice statement, sorta. It does seem that the guy did spend all of the money thats been put into this scrap heap towards making it go faster instead of rediculous body kits, bright paint, vynel and a massive wing. But still, it's hideous!

how often do you think he has to buy a new turbo or air filter? cause that just makes it way to easy to steal.

That's completely retarded. Not only will that turbo get fucked up by any flying debris, those extra long pipes are gonna hurt performance. Short, direct pipes = good. Long, winding pipes=bad.

turbo sticking out of hood = retard who should have car taken away

edit- jayson... he deserves to have that air filter stolen

Well that car sucks (not all CRXs) so when he modified it, he wanted to make sure everyone saw the turbo and hopefully regain some respect.....it dosnt work.

Or how about maybe it's not a daily driver and just a track car so he doesn't have to worry about people stealing anything.

Funny thing is, it'll probaby beat 75% of the people who made fun of it.

Mid &'s in the 1/8th mile ... that was without the turbo on nos.... No runs with the turbo yet... but was planning to if time permitted to show the cars true ability. Yes you can say its unique, and that said, its hella ugly!

One thing I am certain of is that what ever speed it traps at, I wouldn't feel safe doing in that car.

So this thing is real? I thought the cut up FMIC and turbo above the hood was supposed to just be some sorta joke...I saw it first on LS1tech.com just about a week ago, and was like...that cant be real...

Since when did a car have to be pretty to be fast? It's almost a sleeper, with the exception of the...turbo...sticking out of...the hood. :|

If he has all the shit done he says he does, that's a damn fast car. He needs to shorten the intercooler piping and put that thing under the hood.

Yeah but what it gains in speed it looses in dignity. I could loose to that and still laugh at it.

Losing to that CRX in a 1/4 mile race would be like losing to a retard in a 50 yard dash on foot. I'd honestly be ashamed of myself if I did lose.

Which more than likely I would lose, cause ya know, it's got that Spooling thingy hangin out of da hood.

Wtf? You drive a Civic and you'd be ashamed to lose to a CRX? They're a hell of a lot lighter than your Civic, and with a motor swap and turbo like that you would get your ass handed to you.

lol! dude why does it have to be that?

he'll fix it when he gets more money. You know at 17, not a lot of money is gained, but a whole lot is lost.

well if its fast you gotta give him props. It is one of a kind for sure.

no... you really dont have to... it may be one of a kind but its fucking gay

I didnt say it wasnt gay, but fast is fast

Sleepr awd
05-22-2005, 12:03 PM
its probably not even that fast if it has a stock engine on the other side of that turbo...

caviman69
05-22-2005, 03:29 PM
he said it ran 8's in the 1/8th mile without the turbo. It might not be the fastest car but you shouldent get pissed if a shitty looking car is faster than yours stang00.

BlackGT2000
05-22-2005, 04:03 PM
I will say whole heartedly that it is gay. Nobody would be proud of this car unless you just ran some incredible number at a drag strip, but as soon as you drove it away it would be gay again. Its not a sleeper, it dosn't look good. It looks like Junior Jones rigged it up in his woodshed.

lol wow... when did i ever say anything about my car...?

BlackGT2000
05-22-2005, 04:54 PM
I wouldn't care if that ran 8's in the 1/4. The fact is that its shamefully hideous. Maybe if he took care of the following errors it would be acceptable.

#1- Shove that fuckin turbo under the hood

#2- Shove that intercooler behind the bumper.

#3- Repaint it and get the dents out.

#4- Get some kind of better wheels, I don't like the steel wheels.

Thats just the exterior I dont even know what kind of shit he had rigged up inside. He's likely to have wires and shit going all over the place judging by the build quality on the outside.

damn you guys are right it does look gay. Maybe im one of those poeple that try to look at the inner bueaty, but i never found it. Yeah the car is gay, my bad :twak:

Honesty, if this car can do what he claims then this is a pretty quick car..... But damn........ Something this beastly shouldn't exhist. How about getting a MR2 Turbo or AWD DSM, with some modding they can run faster than this and they got the looks too back them up.


This car makes baby jesus cry.

For the amount of time he put into making this car look like shit anything could match what ever time he is running with it. Any anything else would undoubtedly look better.
