I'm not 100% sure what stock boost is. The US one makes 250hp and 258 ft lbs stock. After a tune it jumps to 318hp and 382 ft lbs of torque. That's without touching the car other then a flash tune. Mines also got maps for 100 octane race fuel hehe.

I've got a kid at my work that's running about the same. Not beating c5 vettes, least I seriously doubt it. Not as quick as another guy's Speed3 tho, that thing's quick.

He had more than just a boost increase on the car. He tuned it, different downpipe, no cat, different wastegate, intake, bigger turbo, some internal stuff on the engine. He was eating C5s. He did get spanked by a C6 Z06 though. He could keep even with a stock C6. It's funny because he had about $15k in the car including the cost of the car and he was as fast as a $70k car. I know the Vettes have a lot more up top than he'd have. He'd definitely lose in a pull from 130+.

Yeah that speed3 has intake, downpipe, diff wastegate, front mount conversion. Still waiting on his chip, rest of the exhaust to get rid of the last cat, and bigger turbo. The front wheel drive on it is hard as hell to keep straight off the line tho. Those set srt's are pretty insane tho, at least when done right. The kids at my works is a P.O.S and he thinks its the coolest thing ever haha

What did I do to my ZJ today?

I fixed the low coolant sensor bad message that has been showing up on the VIC for years. Wasn't hard to take out and take apart. If you don't have the tools to solder here is what I did. I called a TV repair place in town and asked if could do a little curcuit board repair. No problem and $5 and about and hour later, no more coolant sensor bad message. All the info I needed was on this formum including great pictures. Thanks everyone. Now to find out why my horn just stopped working.

lol not as many as today. I got down to change the trans mount, and low and behold the PO had WELDED the friggin' cross member on... No clue why, all of the bolts were there. so I had to cut the welds, then change that, and the driver side motor mount is a PITA.

Thought someone might enjoy what happens when you let you inexperienced cousin from Kansas drive your tractor for a day.

You drive a tj, we drive a zj. We have more power while you get more shower. We get the v8 while you get there too late. You have 2 doors well, we have 2 more. Ours costs a grand while yours has a price we cant stand.

Neighbor has one just like mine, and a quad trac, which is the same thing with 4 tracks on it. Took both of those to barely get it out. Cody never drove it again. Lol
