No Toyota Celica GT4? :Okay:Anyways, as much as I love Evos, from my young years I've been a really big Subbie fan, you gotta love that unmistakable boxer sound and it's rally legacy. Sooo, my vote goes for, and this is really hard to choose from, the Impreza.

Sweet looking Evo, with the parts to back it up. Love that orange color, it's literally HOT!

Amazing stuff. Love the Calibras, always had a sweet spot for them. Especially that fully carbon one - woah, what a beast!

I absolutely love forced induction. But my vote here goes for NA's. There is something about highly strung engines singing upwards of 9-10k rpms. What a marvelous song.

@speedhunters_dino For starters I'll keep it fairly stock engine-wise as you did in the begging, would probably do only Basic Upgrade Package or BPU for short, as how it's known. Going to get a cold air intake (Blitz SUS Power Air Cleaner) with aluminum piping all around to replace the rubber ones, downpipe (custom made with a restrictor ring to not overboost the stock JDM turbos), full decat exhaust system (Blitz Nur Spec Type R), boost controller (Greddy Profec B Spec 2), boost cut controller (Greddy BCC), uprated fuel pump (Bosch 044) and injectors (Sard 650 or 800cc), better spark plugs (NGK Iridium) along with an ignition amplifier (HKS Twin Power DLI). Boosted at 1.2 bar (17-18PSI), alongside with the VVTi 2JZ-GTE it should make for around a good ~450HP, give or take, with a very nice and fat torque curve for both daily driving and racing it. Also going to get some nice suspension parts for making it stick to the road better and putting the power down like HKS HiperMax III Coilovers, Carbing solid one-piece aluminum front and rear strut bars, some lightweight forged wheels and sticky tires to go with them (still haven't desided here yet), also going to get an aftermarket LSD (OS Giken Super Lock), upgraded clutch (OS Giken Twin or Triple Plate), and a nice shifter for the Getrag 6spd (C's short throw shifter). Eventually will look into Cams and an aftermarket full standalone ECU also, for going all-out full BPU+, but that will be after all the other stuff gets done. All in all, it should make for a pretty beastly and balanced daily driver/racer. It should have no problems at all catching and giving a run for their money (even beating) some of those pesky Skyline GT-R's, Om-Nom-Nom, lol. A never ending JDM battle. :) Thanks for the attention Dino, would be glad if you have some time to check out the stuff I wrote (sorry for the wall of text, lol) and give a honest opinion, thanks!

Amazing post Dino, well done sir! More than fun to read and follow the story of your man-machine bond love. Can't wait to see more of the upgrades you do with the Godzilla in the future! This is where I hope in very soon time I'll be with a Supra JZA80, getting it to be a well balanced ride, exactly like what it came out from Toyota back in the days!
Just had a read trough all of this... And wow, this brings back some memories... I would say, the 80's were the pinacle of motorsport evolution in it's twisted insane ways it was going... Crazy powerful cars, crazy aero, unreal drivers... Le Mans, Formula 1, Group B, IMSA and all other racing motorsports... It was just insanity. A beautiful insanity. Great post, no, AMAZING POST, this was just a pleasure to read and see these pictures which tell a story that will never be forgotten in the hearts of millions of motorsport enthusiasts. Bravo!
