I bought my car 5 years ago and the day I bought it I already knew I was going to turbo charge it. The same day I started buying parts for my project. A year later I was still completely stock but finally had all the parts I needed to turbo charge the motor and went from 200hp at the flywheel to 440hp to the wheels on a mustang dyno. I would frequently visit the local drag strip and drive the hell out of it and daily drove the car. Finally 2 1/2 years later , the motor gave up on Valentine’s day in 2010 along with a small oil fire that burned some plastic pieces, the rear bumper and some rubber boots. At first I was just going to build a race motor and repair the burned items but after the motor was pulled I started doing other stuff to the car to keep me busy.The whole rebuild took a little over a year and I took care of a lot of things I always wanted to do but never had the time. On my current setup I should be able to make 600hp to the wheels no problem but I will probably just keep her at about 500-550 because to much power on the stock trans and it will start blowing gears left and right. My future plans are racing seats , roll cage , and PPG gears. Once I get my PPG gears I will max out the turbo and go for mid to high 10s. As of right now I still have the fastest RSX in the state of Nevada but when I finish the car I would like to be top 5 fastest RSX in the USA. Special thanks goes out to my friend Brian Martinez at Speedlab for all his hard work during the whole process.
