I would upgrade the suspension: New struts and firmer springs, beefier sway bars, bigger rims with better tires. The car goes fast enough for me as it is. I don't street race and I don't track. I just like driving around corners a little too fast. The way it is right now, the car rolls too much and I lose traction.

Next would be brake upgrade but the car isn't that fast, and that's an expensive mod.

If I had money to burn, then a quiet turbo-back exhaust and custom tune.

Other than that, I don't want to attract the attention of the cops.

Do any of you really know anything about cars?

An STi is basically a consumer version of the rally car. It comes packed with full extensive suspension modification done to it from the factory. Of course you can do a little more but unless you go to the circuit track or autoX it is completely useless for a street car. Will an average person even notice a difference? No.

I've read a few posts on here and I would have to say you guys really dont know much about anything. Someone was talking about putting a Honda h22 prelude engine into a 240sx. Why do that? I dont know, seeing that a the h22 is a fwd horizontal engine and the 240sx is a rwd vertical placement car. See what I mean?

For car information your much better off going to a Car specific forum where people know their sh*t.

ClubWrx.net will be a good forum to join.

P.S. There is a nice cheap lip for the wrx also. And it looks pretty decent.

I have me a black BMW 323i superhcharged i have 18inch Akuma black rims..and i have the windows extremely tinted Thats all i ever plan to do with that.

But for christmass this year my father bought me a 04 Ford Focus ZTS with an SVT engine it in as a project car for both him and i to work on together....right now the only thing it has done to it was the engine swap (which was done before i bought it) and i have side graphics and under glow. I still have to put in my new head and tail lights when it warms up though.

I'm having a hard time to think of what kind of rims to put on a white and navy blue car though =(

Have you done any rear suspension mods? I know your rear must suck at a launch.

You are only making 360hp? Seems kinda low for your mods on a supra. Non-turbo to turbo conversion?
Posted 12/17/07


Yes! let's see your turbo engines, and shiny rims hold up to a .50 cal machine gun!

Ill be getting an EVO X when it comes out. Swap the exhaust give it a carbon hood with working hood scoop with cold air intake. maybe add a supercharger if possible. change the rims and add michelin tyres and HID lights. Fog lights are a must. A carbon spoiler and maybe illegally increase the engine bore diameter and turbocharger intake and Brembo brakes. may do abit more modding but not sure for now.


Wow..now why would you add a SC to it? It seems like you know nothing.

I've already started on my CLK. This summer I'm adding HRE C21 rims, Barbus front spoiler, Kleemman SS headers, and Eisenmann quad exhaust with no cat.


man its just a wish.... i know theres no way..... and i know enough but frm where i come from engine modding is a big no-no. but maybe swap out the turbo or the whole engine... but still im oni 16 and you now hafta be 21 instead of 18 to be able to drive....

okay, so, i would mod car, well first i would deffintly get a gutted out 240SX or a 300ZX or maybe even a IS350

ok then i would mod the gutted out 240 with a full roll cage inside, carbon fiber g-force hood with red racing buckets (2 only) on the exterior, it would be a glossy black no spoiler/wing mid-black tint no bodykit, just a lip in the front, engine would be a h22 =], AEM intake, with GREDDY exaust, with RSR suspension haha, or RSR exuast & suspension, no turbo or nitro =] straight motor

for my is350, i would probably redo the paint, and add my AEM coldair

ok enuff of fantasies ;]


The H22 is FWD....good luck flushing time and cash modding it into a 240sx. And if you want a better Honda engine get the H22a not the H22. Goddamn ricers. And:

VTAC JUST KICKED IN YO!


Also I hate fast and furious for inspiring all these kiddies to make their cars look like crap with gay paint jobs and speeding on the streets and thinking they are JDM tYtE!

No side graphics and underglow please, you're gonna make that focus look like a Fast and Furious reject.
