    My family fleet of cars.......

    Yes, I am a Noobie to this forum.

    Well, I just recently bought a 05' WRX. This car is probably the weirdiest configuration I have ever driven, You know AWD and all. I have driven everything from FWD, RWD, to Mid engine RWD. Those are all fun but very different from AWD. I mean what else can you drive in the rain and launch hard and still not have any problems going.

    Anyway, My wife drives a 97' Integra Type-R. She upgraded from an engine swapped CRX. She was a little skeptical about selling her Baby (CRX). She's happy though. now that she has a car that handels well and is very reliable. As well as looks damn sexy with her driving it.

    Our other project is a 96' 240SX KA-Turbo. This car is mean. It is a Corvette killer and a great drifter. It's a fun car to have when we need to go fast. It has quiet a few mods on it and is just a weekend car now.

    Here are a couple of pics of them...

    Thank you guys very much.....

    Yeah, She is pretty well versed on cars and knows enough to make most people stumble talking to her... lol
    It's great.

    It is a stock KA with about 250whp. Just a Revhard kit. Great power band and loads of torque.

    Can't wait to ECUTEK the WRX soon. Also, we will be doing ported intake manifold on the Type-R soon. As well as new fuel rail and pump. Possible in the near future Hondata. She keeps bugin me for these things so I gotta try and get them all.

    She also says thanks for the comments too..

    Any plans to build it up? You can make huge power once that is accomplished.

    Sweet KA-T. I'm on my second s13 and plan to turbo the dohc. What type of engine management are you using? SAFC? Timing?

    KA24DE = way underrated by all the SR20DET groupies

    I think I am pretty much done with the engine. I use a S-afc, Walbro 255lb. and SR injectors at 10psi.

    I am also contemplating selling it though....

    Twisty Monster - 335 ft/lb of torque @ 3600 rpm on a stock turbo. Is that possible? Yes it is.

    check out the engine performance FAQ sticky for good first mod suggenstions.

    uppipe and downpipe should be the first power mods.

    tires and swaybar are great handling mods (better stick, neutralize understeer)

    wheels, tint, sideskirt painting are the best first visual mods.

    welcome to the club!

    Thanks for the suggestions.

    My 05' came with painted sideskirts from the factory which is good. I already added 17" wheels and tires. They swaybar would be good to do so I don't have so much understeer. All though I think it needs tint and a good set of springs for now. just to give it the aggressive look.
