    Just a little Del Sol action

    The victim is an early 90's Del Sol. With all the boosty flashing buzzing shit that people put onto Hondas to make 480whp (according to his last dyno sheet). Now its boom time.

    Test fit - camera angle you can't see the shape really



    Through the rolled down back window





    The soak





    Rings hogged out





    Time to make it strong



    Almost looks like something now





    Ahh - Boston Acoustics - rest in peace (they're not in car audio anymore )





    And anyone familiar with Winnipeg will appreciate the "North End Lollipop"

    Sweet build, how's it progressing? Man, that tiny cabin is going to pound! I wonder how the removable roof is going to handle the pressure. How much wattage is getting throw at these drivers?

    Why would someone ruin an apparently 480whp car by putting 4 giant subs and amps in it!?

    Just a little Del Sol action

    Because not race car? Because show car? Because dyno queen?

    Looks good as always. Next time I'm in Winnipeg I definitely need to come to your shop. BMW's have weak sound systems and I don't have a clue when it comes to this stuff.

    Such haters eh? The game here is significantly more elevated than in tbay my friend. 4-500 whp is the norm on what we call a modded import. The "because racecar" kids are in the 800+ whp range. And there's tons of em. All backed by dyno sheets (again don't forget there's many shops with full chassis dynos here)

    Having said that I don't post here to be questioned on the logic of why a custy wants what they do. I just figured an enthusiast forum might enjoy an enthusiast build. Guess not.

    Not everyone lives there lives a 1/4 mile at a time. Perhaps you'll get that one day?

    Unless you're a part of a specific group doing a specific type of build, you get shit on. It's how tbm works.

    I'm in for finished pics, good progress so far dude.
