    cobbs stg 2 vs turbo IS

    It wasnt pretty at all. I saw this civic looking car in my review coming up fast behind me. I was doing about 65 70 not sure. But then i see this front monunt. I wasnt sure what it was. The Front mount had somesorta lettering on it couldnt make it out. I put it in 3rd pulled an inch with him behind me. then all of a sudden i see this car fly by me. It wasnt pretty. this car was fast. i must of been doing atleast 100 with him going at least 120 by his spool up.
    Round two
    He was infront of me we had truned off rt1 on sproul rd. Two lane road. i got in the right hand lane. he wasi n the left. i took off he just blew by me. It was no joke i got him to pull over and talk for alittle. He had some sorta 351 turbo cant remeber what exactally what it was, but from what he told me he said he was around 600 horse on pump gas and around 700 on c16. This turbo was so big it didnt even have and intake on it. he showed it to me. He melted his turbo rape or heat wrape that was around it. He told me he ran 10.62 at the track. I BELEAVE HIM. This car was insane.

    Yes it was an IS300 (Trailboss) sorry i should of never dropped out of college!!!The turbo was really big. When i was walking up to his car i asked if it was a t3t4 he said no bigger, way bigger. If i see him around ill try to find out what type. I asked him how muchhe spent for the turbo he said $1500, hes a little Korean guy (really nice)

    well we all know that the supra is a dyno queen, and can easily put numbers above 700hp. so i think 600hp on race fuel is possible. supras gain a crazy amount of power on that, and essentially they share the same engine.

    10.6 is kinda fast for a turbo is300, i have yet to hear of one running that... but with race fuel and slicks i guess is possible

    HAHAH, nice **** man. Did the IC say "XS" and was the car blue? If so its a kid I've met him a few times, through friends. IIRC hes got a GTE block, Crower everything else. His numbers are def correct.

    When he first made the car he still had the stock auto and the trans gave out shifting from 3rd to fourth and he still ran a 13.00

    Yea they are dyno queens I saw one at the track guy made like 600 hp but had no traction at all he was running like mid-high thirteens on one of his runs he ran a 14 he was just really struggling for traction.

    that kind of IS300 buildup costs $30,000 installed. I saw the website but can' remember which. Congrats, your $27,000 car got own3d by $60,000. For the IS300 to go turbo, you need exhaust, ecu, injectors, fuel pump, new HEAD, turbo, plumbing, IC, intake, intake manifold...
    basically $10,000 in parts.

    meh, should have got a supra.

    I prefer the IS300. My friend has one and it is one of the best luxury cars I've ridden in. The interior is top notch. I'd take a 600 hp IS300 over a 600hp supra anyday.
