View Full Version : Gotta Nice Car?

02-16-2003, 02:30 PM
U gotta nice car? Well i wanna see it! I was looking at the SC's on Lowrider.com and they all suck! The best one last time i checked had a Nitrous System and tinted tail lights. I'm sure we can do a whole lot better than that. I think we should all post pictures of our car here, and maybe sum how we can set up a poll and vote on the nicest car. Then the winner will represent SCCoA on Lowrider.com. Now i haven't talked to anybody about it but i think its a good idea, maybe we should show the world wut we're made of? Who's w/ me? Lets post sum pics and talk to a webmaster to see about that poll. LETS POST SOME PICS!!! :cool:

I don't think that there are too many of us that are into "low riders" here.

None of the t-birds there are lowriders either... dun worry, i'm not trying to turn this into a rice restraunt, i just wanted to see if ne1 thought it was a good idea? Lowrider isn't neccessarily a lowrider site, there's dif. category's like stock, street, race etc. So it wasn't gonna be under the rice section.

My wife's getting tired of cleaning my drool off the keyboard everytime someone posts some pix of George Davenport's car.

Mine was on that sight back in the day when it looked like a bass boat (and none of you guys would talk to me LOL) I am still influenced by the darkside but I am planning some things for this year since I bought the trailer that you guys will probably like

That one isn't mine, but I do like the 5-spoke Alba Blaze wheels on it. I am going to put 20x9" Cobra R's on mine, lower it with eibachs, and I'm seriously considering putting a 94 front bumper on it w/ 97 headlights w/ real HID bulbs, 97 clear turn signals, and a cowl induction hood. Plus I have a spoiler on for the back of mine thats getting put on in a month when i get it painted. I'm also going to put on 94/95 side trim on my car, shave the trunk lock, and possibly shave the door handles. Then comes the in-dash 7" tv and play station 2.

But first I'm getting my new mods put on. 190 lph fuel pump, 3.27 gears, flowmaster exhaust, 10% pulley, raised top, and ZR intake. Then maybe this summer a nitrous kit.

I already have removed cats, b&m ripper shifter, tinted windows, clear corners, xenon head lights, 245/50/ZR16 Yokohama tires, 2 15" Punch DVC subs, DEI 1100d amp, removed air silencer, scp intake, 9" K&N cone, ported 70mm MAF, viper alarm w/ keyless entry, and the cooling fan mod.

This is all on my black SC.

My silver one is in the garage under construction still. I recently put the ported and polished heads on, and need to finish putting it back together.

I'm selling my Audi to help finance my SC mods for this year.

I can't wait to see my friend Craigs SC, he has chrome 20's, air bags, 97 front clip, custom interior, its a silver 89, or was in the first place. I haven't heard from him in a while, you can see his car at www.baggedbirds.com

my car, with and without the new rims..

Gooey gus 2 nice car. I noticed you have the zex nitrous system. How do you like it? Was it a big improvement? Tim

02-22-2003, 08:30 PM
I like it a lot, i only have it on the 55 setting so its not like an insanely huge jump in power, but it is definately a big jump in the butt dyno as far as pulling goes (second gear wraps up with nitrous about as fast as first gear w/o it *AOD*)

02-22-2003, 11:07 PM
Do you know how much it cut off your 1/4 time? Tim

02-23-2003, 08:07 AM
haven't ran it yet, another guy with about the same mods and same size shot ran 13.6 @ 102 (60 shot i think) ran about a second slower without

02-23-2003, 01:14 PM
Wow, Isaid I would never run nitrous again but that is tempting. one second is a lot. Thanks Tim

02-23-2003, 01:17 PM
yea i never liked the idea of a bottle either, but that type of improvement sounds pretty sweet. about how much would the whole ZEX setup run? and what type of things do you have to do to prepare your engine to use that ZEX stuff? (like so it doesnt melt or blowup)

02-23-2003, 01:21 PM
I think about $500. My only concern is will the computer pull the timing back far enough as to not cause detonation. Tim

02-23-2003, 06:49 PM
its $517.90 from summit (p/n CCA-82011)

on the 55 shot it says no need for ignition retard, and says 2 degrees for the 65 shot, and 4 for the 75. i think s/c have 10 degrees retard stock.

I've had no problems with detonation on 92 octane on the 55 shot.

no need to do anything to your engine if its stock, if you've got some mods i would say get a bigger pump and injectors (bosch, because they handle high fuel pressure better)

and i would get a bottle heater and purge valve, because if the bottle has any less than half left, it doesn't work very well (needs heat to keep the pressure up)

02-23-2003, 09:38 PM
so do you have it hooked up to a switch that automatically comes on when you push the gas or do yo uhave to push the little red button? i dotn know much about nitrous oxide but about 50hp for about 500 bucks, thats a damn good deal.

know any sites i can go to and do a bit of research on installing and matining a nitrous system on my car?

02-23-2003, 10:19 PM
really easy to install, if you have any questions or anything i can send you all my pics of the install over aim. i think you already have my name on there, if not, its: EMGGuitarBoy
