ya guys, its called primer. its getting painted very soon.
and yes it is turbo and very fast.

that ricey kit you call it, its a civic feels front bumper matched up with mazda protege headlights, and the rear bumper is a brand new FX designs piece.

I think that car was beside me on 14th i reved at him and he reved back no BOV heard, altho he might not have reved hard enough to casue enough pressure for the BOV. It was Bone white Colour almost looked like chalkboard paint. his muffler was anoying!! and it was only the 16valve engine. Too bad he turned on to John laurie i would have wanted to give him a run for his money :)

I wish people could back up how fast something this. If someone says YA its fast, How fast is that ? I know people who say their stock civics are fast... So I am just wondering when you say fast, compare it to something :D

You can Plainly hear it's a 16Valve it's no V6. you can hear that engine Tick + look at the Exhaust it's not big enough for a v6 it's only like 2.0" or 2.25" not a 3"'er if this was the same car i was beside the other day :)

No.not.again

It's not just the stock 16 valve engine. I posted a link in this other thread about what engine is swapped into it.

How much did it cost to mod his 16v MX3?? I mean engine (turbo) wise?? Ecstacy, do u know the specs to his ride??

ecstasyracer
05-15-2003, 11:05 AM
topher91: it cost quite a bit to ship the engine from japan and get it swapped in etc. Not an easy project.

Convict: He should be running at race city on friday if you want to see exaclty how fast it is.

05-15-2003, 12:35 PM
LOL from the sound of his muffler... he didnt sound like he had power especialy since it was not a V6 under the hood i know what the V6 precidia's sound like my X had one she also had Exhaust and intake it was a quick car and sounded Dammm good this car that was beside me on 14th sounded like shit might have looked good but yeah BTW he had a Gauge pod on his A-piller
couldent get a close look at it.

ecstasy_civic
05-15-2003, 12:37 PM

I heard that a stock MazdaSpeed Protege beat it :rolleyes:

so i go on the website you guys gave where they have the info on the BPD engine. Of course whoever did the site didnt bother to add the values in hp and lb/ft...so i busted out the formulas and the calculator and this is what i got:

HP=182
Torque=177.12

Someone please verify this coz if i'm right this car isn't impressive AT ALL and i can believe how a mazdaspeed protege could beat it since it has about the same power...

Here's the formulas i used

hp= killowatts * .0013*1000 so...
hp=140*0.0013*1000
hp=182

Torque= Newton Meters * .738 so...
Torque= 240*.738
Torque=177.12

If i'm right then i'm sorry but that car really isn't THAT fast at all :thumbsdow But i'll let you guys check it out. I got the conversion formulas from the Haynes manual so i dont see how they would be wrong but then again...

Yeah 182hp stock. So lets see a large front mount intercooler, plus higher than stock boost, intake, full exhuast and your trying to tell me its not that impressive. Plus the car is fairly light too.

Turbo cars are generally quiet, and dont sound like your typical hyundai elantra! :rolleyes: Yes, it would walk all over your car, wrx or cobra, I'm not quite sure but time slips will tell.

rice_eater
05-15-2003, 03:59 PM
i was only talking about the engine in STOCK form. I have no idea what else he did to it coz no one said! How much boost is he running?

05-15-2003, 04:00 PM
Word is he used prelude sideskirts for the kit...can anyone verify?

ecstasy_civic
05-15-2003, 04:05 PM
yes molded prelude side skirts,
and rice eater, everytime we have an answer for you, you seem to backtrack your answers so you dont look wrong.

jdmakkord is right, time slips will tell.

05-16-2003, 09:16 AM
It sounded like it had no oil.... Tick, Tick, Tick , Tick tick tick almost like a 92 dodge Neon *lifter prob* with no Oil. and there wasnt a Neon at the light just me him and a Rav-4 behind him. i dont know that's what i heard... Maybe we'er talking about a diffrent car...

this was a Bone white with body kit 17or 18" wheels the BEEEEEEEEEEEE type muffler and gauge pod on his A_piller.

05-16-2003, 10:04 AM
Elantra that could be any mx-3. You guys talk to much about this car...Third time its been brought up.

first thing, hes not the kind of guy to snub you unless your acting like you hot shit, second if you could read, the website you got all hte numbers from says in plain english, its a 4 BANGER turbo:thumbsup:

2k3Elantra_GT
05-16-2003, 10:30 AM
well someone posted he was a V6 and i kept saying no and somone kept saying Yes... and i wasnt acting like anything my window was open i looked over he looked over and i said " Cool car" he just staired at me then looked forward. i was like Hmmm okay either he didnt hear me or he's snubing me. i didnt have my stereo on and i didnt hear anything comming from his car. as we were leaving the light i gave it a bit of gas he did the same and i almost burst out laughing at the sound of his muffler. the turned on to John Laurie i kept going stright down 14th. that's all it was.

ecstasy_civic
05-16-2003, 10:34 AM
hmmm, now you know it is a 4 cylinder turbo and he car sounds really nice, possibly not him, theres anohter guy i believe going to try the same swap. but it sure sounds like his car. anyways. im done in this thread

Stillen GTZ urithane body kit + Track wheels, Street wheels New t_tops No front or rear glass , frame needs to be pulled but it's got simpson 5 point harnesses whole car was reupholstered hmmm maybe i'll takes some pics they'er trying to sell it peice by peice through aforadble auto wrecking/recyling but if anyone is serious they could call T&M appraisle services.

looks like they are from the 4 door variety though
he should of got some from a protege 5 since they are black housings
