Very nice,I've always loved those.

My DD is a 03 Focus ZX3,every option but auto and leather. Hard to believe I paid $13K for it brand new.

That BMW clown shoe is aawesome! Not a fan of the color but have always loved that car.

Here is my DD:

You can't really tell in this pic, but where the front lisence plate would normally go is a custom fabricated, glassed in ram-air setup.

Most definitely! They aren't very quick of the line, but once the turbo kicks in it pulls ok. The torque peak is at 1950 and doesn't drop off until 5000, so its really easy to power through turns without shifting your arm off. The tires are actually thicker than the 85 IROC I used to have way back, so it sticks nicely. Even if you get a little aggressive, the understeer is pretty manageable. It is really fun to fling around.

How about that 'vette? Have you had her on the dyno? I'm a huge fan of GM. My handle actually is based on the first year for the 'vette and the Camaro, respectively. I'd love to have an LS1 6-spd SS, but the insurance would cost me about as much as rent!

It is a 1995 LT1 6-speed. When I first got it, I did a dyno run and the numbers weren't very impressive. 287hp and 290tq at the rear wheels. I done a few minor improvements since them, but nothing that would change the dyno numbers that much. I probably got more HP out of a good tune than I did fron any mod I have.

My mods are an intake, cowl hood, ram air, The hood and ram air were worth a 20degree drop in temps which was exactly what I was going for, these things run hot.

I have the Power Effects Exhaust which is tunable, sounds good too. 4.11 gears in the rear, and suspension stiffening with a new x-brace underneath, a camber brace up front and a roll brace that rides mid chassis. You can't imagine how twisty these vert frames are stock.. it's nuts. The braces made a WORLD of difference in the way the car handles and feels.

I don't race, never done a quarter in this car though other vettes the same year are pulling 13.2-13.4's. I like to run through the twisties, up in the mountains, blue-ridge parkway, places like that.

That is an awesome Stealth!
I've always liked the looks of those and their twin, the Mitsubishi 3000GT, but my uncle bought a Stealth new and it was the worst car he's ever owned. It went through 3 transmissions, 2 clutches, and 1 motor.
This is a guy that is extremely anal about his vehicles and takes super care of them.
I was there when transmission number 2 went out. We were at a family gathering and he and his wife got in the stealth, started it, put it in gear, started to slowly back out of the parking spot and CLUNK, car just wouldn't move.;g ;g
He sold it to some rich teenager soon after and he wrapped it around a tree within a month.

I bought this car 3 years ago with 86k on it. It now has 126k and I am on the original engine (long block) and trans. It actually shifts really well. I am not really easy on her either. It sees upwards of 24 psi of boost when I run race gas in her. All the stuff I have done was because I wanted to, not because I had to. I do need to replace the valve stem seals though.

LoL and its only been that way for about 7 or 8 months now since I bought it like that. Bring your sprayer to tallahassee, already got a compressor.

Actually heres the funny thing. I had the car for about 2 months when I won this contest from a local radio station through clearn channel. "Extreme Overhaul" is what they called it. Well its been about 6 months or so now and the only extreme thing I have seen is stupidity. One shop had it for about 2 months and did nothing but screw it up worse and nobody has touched it since. Supposed to get wheels, stereo, interior, and paint and it looks just like it does in that picture. They were all on top of it a month ago and were fighting to get it done now and it would be done by feb 25th...NOTHING. I just keep forgetting that I ever won the contest and just keep working on stuff in my own time.

About two years ago I made about fifteen trips to my local dealer and looked at/drove the Laguna Seca Blue M Coupe. I fell in love with it and wanted it in the worst way. But life got in the way and I ended up with other toys. I truly envy you, having that as a daily driver.

I just got lucky with this car...I'm a Jeep Wrangler type (miss my 97 still!) I never thought to even buy a BWM let alone have one this color (green, white or silver only!) it's grown on me. So for the heck of it one day I thought I would test drive this car at the dealer, tear it up on some backroads with the sales guy and say "no thanks aint good enough" and leave... Took the sales guy for a ride on a back road I use to race my 66' Mustang on against others as a stupid youngster..I forgot what I was suposed to say after that drive, ended up calling the CFO on the way home and the next day on Sat I drove out of the BMW dealer with it...here is a link for you where they also put up links so you can see what is being sold out there, they only made around 3,400 Coupes so if you can get one hold on to it!

Holy cow, Cguns!! You've got a nice Beemer, an H1, and what looks like an H2 in yellow right next to it!!

CGuns
03-14-2005, 20:22
No, it is actually 3 H1's. Black, Nightstorm and Ferrari Fly Yellow.
On the yellow truck, I took H2 wheels and I machined them to fit the H1 hub in my machine shop.
The bolt pattern is identical.
The hub is almost identical, however, on the H2, it has an 1/8" aluminum flange on the inner axis.
So, put it on the mill with a fly cutter and machined it off.
The standard H1 wheels are cast, one piece or 2 piece steel wheels. Many times, they are out of round. They are also very heavy and a PIA X 10 to balance.
The H2 wheels are forged aluminum. They are also built extremely well. Light weight and easy to balance. I got 4 sets of H2 wheels for free from my mechanic. I am working on designing a CTIS adapter for them. As it is now, I don't run with CTIS on the yellow truck. No big deal, as I am not losing 3-5 PSI every night.;)

Regards, CGuns

vart
03-14-2005, 21:27
I've heard that the H1s are horribly unreliable and expensive to maintain; any truth to that?

The ones I drove in the military seemed to have a bunch of little problems, but were quite impressive to wheel in;) .

CGuns
03-14-2005, 21:43
I have found them to reliable, PROVIDED YOU DO PREVENTIVE MAITENANCE. It is the most labor intensive vehicle that I have ever owned. You need to regularly service the geared hubs for instance. Transfer Case needs attention, as does the filter. It is also prone to leaking. 30 under body points that require grease every 3 months, quantities for fluids are also high. 26 quarts coolant. 8 quarts of oil, 12 quarts of ATF for T.case and Tranny, etc, etc, etc...
I have owned H1's since 1995. I have fixed nearly everything that can go wrong with them.
So far, in terms of major repairs, I have had 1 turbo go on 1 truck, 1 transfer case go on the same truck, my Pump module driver go on one truck and, they like to eat front end components like normal cars eat tires. That means a regular feeding of idler arms, pittman arms, upper and lower ball joints, etc...

Aside from that, they are solid cars. The engines are great, though not the quickest or best diesel engine around.

I just got done with a milling class at a community college.
We learned on Bridgeports. It had powered feed and such, but we had to learn manually (can't learn the fancy way wothout the basics). But I did use the power feed on thier lathes in my turning class.

Good for you! I still do it the manual way, too. I also tend to prefer analog calipers to Mitutoyo Digital Calipers, too :)

I have a Sharp Lathe and I just got a new one...looking for a pic.

I love having them. I also have a Lincoln Mig welder, a Miller Mig welder and a Miller TIG welder.

If anything ever breaks at home....a couple of steps over to the shop and it is a quick fix if I have the time. I generally like tinkering and building stuff.

Good for you for learning this kinda stuff. Keep industrial work in the U.S.

Two T-Cases and a tranny later he finally traded it in, but holy shaat did it ever launch!!!


edited for correction; 15G's not 16G's

More boost is fun, bigger blowers is better ;f

Cheers!

I've had 15g's for about 1.5 years now. Love being able to hold 23 psi to redline !

Are there still cats on the car or something? That thing should be well over 500 HP with twin 15g's. My friend Mark made over 350 to the wheels with a 16g and a front mount with a little 2l Talon. :) I never did Dyno mine and I stopped drag racing after killing two trannies. 12.9's with trap speeds of 107 to 109 MPH, if I was a better driver, it had the power do do more.

There should be more HP to be had with more tuning. Still a great looking ride though.

Cheers!

Twin 15g's are good for around 450 - 475 to the wheels with race gas and proper tuning. I made 379 on pump gas and running a little rich. I am going to do some more tuning and then get some race gas #'s later on this summer. Cats, what are those ??

The 3000GT/Stealth 15g is not the same as the Talon 16g. The 3000GT/Stealth uses the TD04 housing and the Talon uses the TD05 housing which is bigger and capable of flowing more air.

To put it in perspective. The Talon 16g flows around 550 - 575 cfm. The 3000GT/Stealth 15g flows about 400 - 420 cfm.

I'm aware of the housing differences, but I wasn't aware that that was on street gas. Those numbers are pretty darn good for not having the good stuff in the tank.

Good luck shooting for 450 HP, it's a riot when every gear is a power gear. :)

Cheers!

The new G-series from Merc is no longer made from the Gelandewagen but from some sort of fancified ML-series soccer mom SUV.

I know it's not too exciting, but here is my 2005 Infiniti G35X. She gets me where I need to go, and can move out when I need her to.

I did have a 1995 DCM ImpalaSS, but black ice and 55mph took care of that. Now I'm driving the wife's minivan.;1
