I'd say if it's in good condition and HOT configuration, go for it. 250 can easly be pushed form that T25 Mitsu unit. Mine is a hybrid turbo, good for around 290.

So, this happened.



Left side most light needs to be replaced. Rear bumper has a crack at the corner. I'l pull it together with some plastic fixers, and as the bumper is no use anymore, I want to try to plastidip it black.

It's held with screws in rear wheel arches, and as far as I know almost any OG 9-3 has lost their original plastic moldings which hold the bumper in place in arches, so, screws for everyone! :D

Also, the muffler might be pushed in a little, because as far as I remember, it was extended outwards more than it is now, but I can't really recall how it was.

Treat 'ya self



This is kind of old video, and seems slow, because it was. Vacuum hose from blow-of valve was off, and the car was not running with full boost, although the gauge shows the opposite.
Also, in this video, the car was equipped with 17" wheels, which, as turns out, really make a huge difference. During holiday I will try to film another one, as the car currently sits on 16" winter set. NOTICABLE difference in terms of acceleration, like, huge.
I'm able to keep up till 4th gear with Hirsch 300HP 9-5 (Last model before NG), then I run out of torque. (Physics and stuff, torque multiplier by gearing etc.) :)

Yep, minor fender bender in parking lot. One guy was pulling out the same time I was, so we kissed a little, sadly, he had a commercial van which has the metal bar at the rear. We were cool about it tho.

Oh, yeah, the speedo is in KM/H, not MPH. 100km=60miles
