me...... well thats easy ...... I am toyotafan. I have had plenty of toyota 4x4s and a couple of toyota cars (well 1 was a geo prizm), but until a month ago have never had a toyota sports car ... now I got 2. but anyways, I am 28 years old and have a 22 year old wife and I have 3 kids, 1 boy that is 5 and lives with my ex-wife, and 2 girls, one is almost 3 and the other is 3 1/2 months.

rides.......
1) 2003 ford f-350 fx4 with 6.0L powerstroke and manual trans.
2) 2004 Neon srt/4 with no mods yet (wife's daily driver, long story)
3) 1985 chevy conversion van (family truckster)
4) 1986 toyota celica (low budget project)
5) 1986 toyots supra (definately not low budget)

mods......
F-350: bully dog computer, bully dog propane injection, bully dog
nos, eaton 6spd (full on truck non-syncro) transmission,
Westing house onboard air compressor for suspension.
13" centerforce dual friction clutch, sterling 10.25" rear
end with stock front axle loaded with 3.73 gears L/S in
the front and switchable detroit out back. air bags that
can lower it to 6" below stock and raise 13" above
stock. this truck is a super cab (rear 1/2 doors) with a
short box. It makes almost 700 rwhp (with propane and
nos. 460 with out) and almost 1000flbs of torque (600
with out propane and nos). with the automatic it ran low
12's in the 1/4 but I killed the auto so the eaton 6spd
best choice for the power and torque.

chevy van: twin turbo 454 hooked up to a B&M TH700/r4 going
a 3.42 rear end. makes 370 hp at the wheels and 350
lbs torque at the wheels. this is soon to be EFI.

celica: this was my low budget project to prove to somebody
a fast car could be built on a shoe string budget. mods
a 3sge swap, used turbo and intercooler, a free blow off
valve, banks fuel controller and a banks boost controller
and a 75 hp nos kit from nappa

supra: haven't started yet, but it will kick the crap out of a ferrari
when I am done.

yup the whole story is written here.

and all the parts that went into my truck I saw on speed vision before I bought them ....... seen them do the same to a duramax chevy and didn't get anywhere near the numbers i got. it took me 6 months to put the fx4 together. traded a 2000 neon and a 2002 tundra in for it, and spent another 20K on parts ..... gotta love insurance settlements (it pays for my shop, toys, and lawyers)

and i got more than 5 .... those are the only 5 that run ....... I have quite a collection of junk in my back yard.
