Default ORANGE DEL SOL is back..... new upgrades.

Like everyone knows I have this orange del sol, I had 390whp at 17lbs and it was prety fast you can check my videos at youtube just tipe Del Sol Turbo.



Now new setup: I put Victor X IM with 65mm TB, Skunk 2 springs and retainers, BLOX Type-B's cams and agly home made oil catch can. With this upgrades I made 474whp at 17lbs so not bad at all.

But I spoon the rod and main bearings do to my oil pump went bad doing 9,500 rpm everyday.
So I decided to rebuild everything again and put some more good stuff in it like: Competition Stage 5 clutch, Type-r LSD, new OEM oil pump, gates timing belt and GT3582r turbo.... Its gonna be fun.

I think i saw you at speedfactory a month or so ago, I was getting the dc5 tuned...Didn't you buy the car like this or have someone do it because you were talking to James and said you have a GT35r that's internally wastegated that you want to install and put buddy club cams for boost haha

Was that you bc that would suck?
