I doubt you'll get a reply because neither of them have been around for a while. DMX pops in and out every once in a while, but I haven't seen Malvin25 for months.

DMX ran a dyno (torque only) at his school a while back. Here's the pic (from archives):


I remember Malvin was having a few problems with getting his running, but once again, he hasn't been around much lately, so I don't know a lot about his situation.

ive never taken it to the track, had it 7 months now. guy i bought the car from though went 12.94 in the 1/4 on race gas and around 20 psi. that was on the stock 14b turbo with less mods done to the car. the car now has a larger small 16g turbo and more mods. 0 to 60 times should be somewhere in the 4`s with a hard launch, awd is nasty. heres a link to a dsm website outlining the first stage of mods you should do and what you would expect from these mods. i have all of them and more

"A typical Stage 1 setup will cost around $2000 for parts, assuming you do all the work - exact cost can vary greatly, especially if you're able to find deals on used parts. Of course, it's also easy to spend significantly more. As always, determine your budget first and find the areas where you can save money. A Stage 1 setup will raise power output on a DSM to about 300hp at the crank. That can equal low 13's or possibly high 12 second 1/4 mile times on the track depending on the condition of the car, and of course, the most important factor, driver skill level. "
