That's awesome power man, congrats on getting it running well! Bet it's a lot of fun.
Curious why the boost falls to 17psi. Surely your turbo can provide more airflow than that. Is the boost controller set to 17 and spikes to 20psi maybe? If it held 20psi I think it would be in the upper 500s for peak power.

That could be, but who knows. I'm sure the fact that I just have a 10lb WG spring doesn't help. Later tonight I can post a snap shot of the log that shows the boost level. Once I want to turn it up more, I'll be adding more springs to the WG which I'm hoping will help keep the boost curve flatter. I have an 11psi and 5psi spring, that can all be added since they are different physical sizes. So if I have all 3 in there, I should be at about 26psi on WG alone, no MBC.

I'd guess maybe 3500lbs. Would like to get it on a scale someday. Probably no more than your X weighs I'd think.

My X is closer to 3300 I would think the way I run it sans lots of stuff and lighter things. But I am also not light at 220-225.

I was just curious on the weight, had no idea what these things weigh, figured it could be a bit heavier with lexus luxury type added weight.

Everyone refers to these cars are pigs, but really they weight just slightly more or even less than some modern cars. And there is plenty of weight reduction to be had.


SC300 Curb Weight 3482

Supra (Hard)3475 (Targa)3525

Evo X Curb weight (GSR)3517 (MR)3594

Evo 9 Curb weight 3263

2G DSM AWD Curb Weight 3270

Again, I had no idea, was just curious haha. They all call the X a pig too.

3482 stock isn't bad at all with a car like this.

Anyway, I am sure the car is a blast and I wanna see 26psi!

Re: Project Lex

The front seats weight appx 150lbs total. They're big, heavy, and not even that comfortable. I've been looking at trying to get something like RSX seats for it. Was even looking at the seats in the 4G Eclipse at tint day. Just something nice and modern, manual not powered for weight savings. Kerry put Evo 8 seats in his Supra, I wouldn't mind doing that if I could find a set for a good price. Probably knock 100lbs off the car with the front seats alone.

Re: Project Lex

And on. Mounting the tires fucked up the plastidip on the wheel, so I just peeled it all off. Peeled off pretty easy. I hated the way it turned out anyway so no big deal. But kinda sucks if I want to dip them again a different color, seems like every time I swap on tires I'd have to re-dip them.

Re: Project Lex

Wow after seeing what you have done with this car I totally want one. Very very very nice build. I beat the car is a total sleeper to alot of people. The tires give it away that it might have some power. Cant wait to see what it makes when you push it.

Re: Project Lex

Yeah, I'd say it's a sleeper for sure. That was kinda the goal. It still idles somewhat normal, exhaust isn't crazy loud. So I could be chilling next to someone at a stop light and they'd probably have no idea. The tires do give it away a little, but that's kinda cool too, like "hey why does that car have those tires?" kinda thing.

Question though. So with these tires being drag radials, I thought I've heard people say you should not dyno with these tires. Is that true?

Those shouldn't be soft enough to worry about. Dyno'ing should be fine.
