I used to have a '90 GSX. A quick little car back then, in part thanks to the AWD. This one is one little (fast) beast.

I read the comments and it looks like he is only using that 100 wet shot in 1st gear to 6k rpm. I wonder what it would run if he sprayed in every gear? I dig the 8 second street sleeper that doesn't require a massive burnout, slicks, and good track prep to throw down an 8 second pass. John Shepherds all boost 1g Talon traps 200mph, looks stock and still has a manual. 4g63

DSM's make sick power, but they are ALL a ticking time bomb. Always something with these car unfortunately, but when they are running, they are hard to beat for the dollar amount.

I'm not saying it isn't a sick car. Much faster then anything I own. It's just amazing how easy it pulls off an 8.8 pass.

please explain. Thats like saying an 03/04 Cobra or GT500 is a ticking time bomb.
The 4g63 in the dsm is able to double its stock power unchanged from valve cover to oil pan. Even more if you swap out the stock head gasket with a multi layer metal and put ARP studs in there to alleviate head lift past 25ish psi. Record right now is low 600's AWHP stock motor. Thats from a car that dyno's 170ish WHP stock.
the only motors ive killed (or seen killed) are ones done by owner error. Mine especially, saw low oil pressure, still drove on. about 200mi later spun bearing. whoopsie.
Me and a buddy intentionally tried to destroy a stock 4g63 so he could get his wife to let him buy a built motor. Put the knock sensor to ignore, kept adding timing and taking away fuel (on 91 octane mind you, this was pre e85). Bumped up the boost a bit (this was on a frankenstein 56trim setup). Ended up shredding 4th gear. That motor still runs to this day in another locals car with 180k on it by now, 175psi across last time he did a test.
Time bomb my ass. The only thing wrong with these cars are the owners around the late 90's early 00's that picked them up, did ebay/chinese mods, performed said mods the ghettoest and fastest way possible, and wondered why the cars left them stranded.

The trans/transfercase was more of a timebomb than the motor. I ran my stock (99 Eclipse GSX) engine on 27-28psi on a FP3052 turbo on 110 octane all the time. The only thing I had done to the motor for that boost was ARP head studs and 272/272 cams. The rest was just your normal supportging mods.
