Hey guys I’m Jon, I live in Grants Pass, Oregon (southern Oregon) and love cars, i have 3 turbofords, the zx2, my pinto2.3 parts car, and my race car aero-notch 2.3T. I was registered on the teamzx2 forum but couldn’t take how negative they all were towards any and all modifications. Anyways I own 1 of the 500 black S/R’s, with a few tasteful modifications I have set it up with:
stock re-ringed junkyard motor, originally a Gude Performance turbo kit, but these kits do not fit very well, also, I highly modified it to work with the ZXtuner header I have, custom gas welded up-pipe, down-pipe, textured powder-coating on the inter-cooler piping, and valve cover, ACT 4 puck sprung disc, with heavier pressure plate, AEM wide-band o2, Blitz blow-off valve (recirculating), and turbo timer with integrated boost gauge, turboXs boost controller, 43lbs injectors, SCT re-flash on stock S/R ecu, Snow Performance water/alc kit (stage 2), Fidanza Aluminum flywheel, ebay external gate, All the factory S/R stuff, including the bushings, knob, cluster, leather wrapped wheel, mint daisies, borla, interior, and others etc…
Car makes 201whp@1bar(approx 7psi) to the wheels dynotuned. sorry no sheets, computer crashed.
Raced the car on the first transmission. lol. :lol: to a 14.00@101mph with 2.2 60ft. leaving soft, little did i know racing a vette later that night on 15 psi with 105oct. i grenade the first trans. oops. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
