Autocross/Road Racing / Who's winning H stock with their zx2?
« on: July 20, 2006, 11:51:05 AM »
Is anyone winning or even competing with their zx2?  I got last at my first event... Big surprise for a first timer, but only by like .5 seconds.  With a good alignment, and some more experience i should be way more competitive, but was wondering if anyone out there already had some experience and was winning.  Post up some good stories or something...

Photo Album / yeah, about that body kit
« on: July 19, 2006, 12:19:26 PM »
The only thing is I pretty much got the car for free... I doubt I'm going to put a body kit on it... If I were to do that the badly rumpled driver rear would conflict, and I'd have to get a new front fender as well...  The other thing is that if i can talk the local SCCA chapter into doing Rally X I'll be all over that with the ZX2.   I've got an 04 SRT-4 for when I want to show off and really move.  I think I'm going to go side exit for it as well since it's so cheap.  not really a whole lot of reason to do dual side exit, just added weight...  I'm a huge form follows function kind of guy, it has to work first, look good later. If your car is scratch free, and no rock chips, you don't drive enough.  I've got 50,000 miles on the 04 SRT, I put 10,000 on the CBR while the SRT was stored, and I put 3,000 on the sunbird.  Not to mention all the miles she drives commuting back and forth to Des Moines.  I believe in working a car hard, but taking care of it.  Fix something befor it breaks, and fix it right.

I moment of inspiration and $40 I had side exit exaust... I was surprised too. I didn't know there was a resonator already in the exhaust!  It's really not that loud and it sounds pretty good.  I think I would prefer it to be louder...   At highway speeds, it almost inaudible unless you kick it down to 3rd gear...  I like it!

Want Ads / WTB stock 15" ZX2 wheels
« on: July 19, 2006, 09:32:38 AM »
I'm looking for set of ugly, cheap stock zx2 rims for all season tires.  I've got the good 03 stock 15" wheels that I'm using for auto cross.  I'd like to keep the miles low on my good tires.  The cheaper the better, i don't really care if their a 15" steelies even.

I know it's not a zx2 but I need money to go racing with my zx2 if that counts.  Located near Ames, IA.  I will deliver to the borders of IA for the cost of gas!  

Too much stuff to list... I have all receipts for everything that I have invested in the car.  

It's a 1990 sunbird GT turbo.  Tinted windows automatic.  Rebuilt engine and tranny, head pocket ported.  I used a new virgin block, and pistons rings. reused conrod and crank.  crank turned 1 mm.  Rebuilt turbo Gran Prix Turbo, dsm intercooler turned top mount, dsm 1st gne BOV, accell 8mm spark plug wires, Mopar 32 lb/hr injectors.  Fuel pressure regulator.  2.5 downpipe and high flow cat.  2.75" to muffler 3" apexi A spec muffler.  New brake pads, rotors, drums, shoes, hardware, new ball joints, front struts, tie rod ends, fresh alignment.  Newer tires.  Craig Moates Autoprom, and everything needed to tune it.  I also have the convertable upper and lower "strut" tower bars.  

On stock tune it idles alittle rough because of the injectors, but other than that runs like a top.  No more than 3000 miles on all new parts.  As I have over $3500 invested I would really like to get $2000 out of it but know that's not really possible.  If you're interested let me know, I probably won't shoot down any real offer.
