About Me Work at a speed shop on the South side of Des Moines, IA wasn't that interested in the 3/S platform at all until I bought a 1998 base model 3000GT, in high school, after driving the base model and seeing what it had for power it made me crave the twin turbo VR4, so I traded my base 98' 3000GT for a 93' 3000GT VR4 with a fair amount of issues, boosting/ bad turbos (only making 5 psi. of boost at the max when I bought it) after owning it for a while and taking it to the track and running a 9.5 sec. 1/8 mi. pass and just barely beating 5.0 mustangs if not losing to them I was determined to beat those that I had raced and been beaten by. Within 6 months of owning the car I bought new slightly upgraded turbos (ported 9B's) I installed them myself putting in an accumlative 20 hours total in replacing the turbos. During the time after replacing the turbos it was the winter months and the racing season had come to an end for the winter of 2006 in March of 2007. During the spring months I replaced the transmission and installed a new RPS Stage 2 clutch, Sadly my car had a progressivly worse and worse oil burning issue which was caused by leaking valve seals, although it had developed this problem I was still able to go out and beat many of those that had beat me a year before surprising many that had beat me. I took the car to Cedar Falls Raceway in Cedar Falls, Iowa and Ran a 13.253 @ 104 mph at 14 psi of boost with a reaction time of 0.613 with three different types of tires (not enough cash to afford 4 brand new tires at the time lol) I recently sold the car in November for the bad oil burning problem, I had a lot of memories in the car but now I have my new toy my first Dodge Stealth. I now drive a 1994 Dodge Stealth R/T Twin Turbo with the factory pearl yellow paint and a few basic mods I plan to make a name for me and my car in the scene here in Iowa.
