Love your passion for it lavod. What would it have taken to change it into a ten second car?

2004 Honda Odyssey
Paid $1,750 with 124,000 miles
Pulled out the back 5 seats and turned it into a small hotel room.

I do miss my CR-V tho but all the extra room is awesome.

Here's a side pic of my project 01 Jetta.

Priming it up to strap on a turbo to the 2.slow engine.
Have upgraded everything except the turbokit, which is on the way ordered for $450 from eBay.
Quite a steal if ya ask me.

Total $$ including cost of ride after all said and done : $3000.

After the turbo I'll be pushing 270hp

Thank you.  Looking back, if i wanted 10s i'd probably do the following: 84mm crank bringing displacement up to 2332cc, 5.7" H-beam rods, bigger cam(i'd want high lift and medium duration), ARP head studs, a little more head work with 42x37.5 valves, 1 3/4 header, and for the turbo i'd go with another t04 but a .68 p-trim hotside and a .60 cold with a 60trim e wheel.  I would have also went with an EBC(it had a hallman MBC) set to ~22psi high with an overboost button on the steering wheel for about 25psi as needed.  I would have needed drag radials and a t2 cv conversion as well.

I'm not sure what happened to it.  I sold it to a dubber(stereotypical young watercooled VW guy) who tend to ruin such cars.  Last i heard he put honda prelude seats in it :confused: and it was being kept outside under a tarp.  I feel so bad for doing that to my old baby but i have a new automotive love now.

No offense meant to the WCVW guys, but there is a type ya know.  I've had a few WCVWs myself including an '83 rabbit diesel, 2 '88 Jettas, and a '91 Jetta.

Good luck with the Jetta hTx.  2.0s take kindly to boost.  I'd just be very wary ov cheap turbo kits however.  The whole 'fast, cheap, or reliable: pick two' dictum is true FAR more often than it is'nt.

BTW jokeshop, i never owned a honda but respect them and had friends with some fun ones including an EG with a all motor crvtec and a stroked s2000.  My favorite though was a maroon crx with a little zc that a late friend owned.  CRXs are fun, well balanced little cars.

Awesome car and setup, but 10s would be extremely hard with that weight.  A blast though, i'm sure.

Thanks mang. I agree it's pretty heavy.. but there's already a MK7 Golf R in the 9s (with full interior), 10s is not super hard with the kind of setup I have.
Would probably have to shave weight and put some sticky slicks on, but it's doable. Will have to see once I have enough free time/money.
Not really my focus though as I very rarely make it out to the track.. it's more of a canyon cruiser and mustang embarrasser  :grin:

Here's said 9 second R

1988 Toyota Pickup. 4x4, 5spd manual 22re. Currently sans engine in the driveway. Been slowing gathering parts for a full rebuild. Going to be picking up more of these little truck as wellness the 4runners and build them up for sale. Huge Toyota fanboy.

Power to weight ratio is what's important - I reckon I got you all beat on that front - my CBR runs about 1000Bhp/Ton.

The new mustang GTs 5.0 run about 425hp stock V8...mines V6. While sporty the inside is pretty cramped up.

310 hp at the crank is not alot at the wheels. Alot of people get caught up in the advertised hp of new cars and forget alot of it is lost through the drivetrain. 310 crank hp is like 250 wheel maybe. New mustangs are advertised at like 400ish crank hp. At the wheels it's no more than 350 or so.

A stock v6 mustang won't beat much....
I spotted several here that would eat it alive. That golf alone is nothing to play around with. Alot of the cars posted here are not fast nor meant to be so if you're counting the honda Odyssey and the like then sure.

I would definitely pay to see you vs a suped up Minivan though. Give you about 5k to mod your car and the odyssey about 8k. That'd be fun
