Sizzle Chest Posted June 22, 2011 Share Posted June 22, 2011 Dug up some old pics of my 5.0 and scanned them! Car was a 1990 LX hatch, 5.0, 5 speed. I bought the car new in 1990! I LOVED this car! It was the shizzle back then!! lol. A few pics: (I still have the original window sticker!) You can see the nitrous nozzle and braided lines going into the air intake before the tb in the upper left of pic: And a shot of me in it! LMAO! Track pics were taken at Atco Dragway in NJ. I was running High 12's with the car back then which was flying. Mods were: 3.55's, McCreary 'cheater' slicks, 2 chamber flows, K&N filter, bumped the timing to 14 degrees, pulled the silencer out of airbox, and a 150 Compucar shot. Other pics with it all 'Jersey'd' out were with some 5-star wheels on it (don't remember the brand) and some hideous tape striping and graphics! The good old days! LMAO!! These brought back some memories and a few laughs/smiles from me today! Anywho...I'm back in a Ford! Same story as my 5.0 pics. Found some old pics and scanned them. 2000 Yamaha R6. Carbs were flowed/balanced, Yosh exhaust (then a D&D), sprockets changed-1 down up front, a few up in the back, I cleaned up the ports in the head, K&N filter, and I mod'd the airbox. Bike put down like 108hp back then, which was pretty **** good for a 600. Used to go up to TN/NC every June with my buddy Jordan with his Triumph 955 for a run through the mountains. Great times and some good fun! I loved this **** bike! Had a ton of fun... Was time to get rid of it though after I dumped it the second time. Glad I did, too many friends have gotten ironed out on them. On to the pics... Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
