You were running a 56 trim turbo on that with 16PSI???? Please tell me that wasn't on stock internals!



On second thought, please tell me that lasted 50,000 miles like that on stock internals. If so, that's exactly what's going on next! Lol. I always thought a stock M50/52 would only be good for about 7-8 PSI max without going everything forged, ARP hardware, metal HG, etc.

Tell us some about that car!

TBH the vid is very hard to see and not terribly impressive or detailed, so you aren't missing much. What caught me is the wording saying it was a 56 trim turbo pushing over a bar of pressure.....DROOL!

I NEED to know if that's on stock internals!!!! Lol.

DAMMIT!!!! And there is no way I'd trust a DSM w/ 16PSI on stock internals, it's gotta be upgraded. Man, that sucks...lol.

Im not saying a word in relation to this as everyone knows my feelings on this type of stupid behaviour.

But must admit....could have had fun with a work car and a ticket book.......

Dude you guys need to learn some stuff about dsm's... First of all 2g'scan withstand 400hp which believe it or not stock internals! safe tune would be around 350hp and can be a D.D. And to the guy whining about street racing, man you have to know something. Most people run on the highway.Wreckless "ricers" driving would be swerving through traffic in pure daylight. Which as you can see the video above isn't wreckless and was on the highway. I mean if ur that rich to take your car to the track everyday go ahead. Please people dont hate on cars you dont know anything about.

Dude, who the hell are you to come on here and talk sh!t. Who's driving a POS Eagle?

Can anyone say return of Speed_Freak???

Anyway, Supra's are DAMN good cars. DSM's are NOT 2JZ Supra's. DSM's can make power, but are NOT good engine's by my standards. I cannot see a DSM running 380 horses at 1.5bar for a daily driver. Perhaps for an occasional driver/weekend car, but unless the internals have been upgraded, I can't see it lasting long.
I didn't say they were slow, just that I wouldn't trust it at that high of pressure on stock internals.

Chill dude, and go back to dsmforums.

Ok, I'm just saying I wouldn't trust one for a DD for long term. That's all. Your Eagle may be fast, but it certainly doesn't have the looks or comfort of a BMW. Or cornering. Give me a road course and you'll be gone.
That said, I'm not going to be wasting any more time here. I'll leave you with this, troll.

Nobody said a POS couldnt go fast, but that doesnt excuse the fact that it's still a POS.
