Ummm.....most TGPs have 275 ft-lbs tq after a Jeff M TopGun 160 chip, and they run mid to low 14s. Plus, you'd need a HELL of a lot of work to get a n/a 3100 to 275 torque. If these are the kinds of mechanics UTI is putting out....we're all in deep trouble. :mellow:

I should ask him to work on my GFs 3100 and make it a 10 second car. :lolsign:

I looked up mods for her car just cause I was bored outta my mind. There isnt SHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIT for that engine compared to our aftermarket.

Camrys have small aftermarkets as well. People are more interested in the Solara than the Camry.

But the V6 Camry has a S/C kit and the I4 Camry has a turbo kit IIRC.

Still the white one....which has now developed a power steering fluid leak, and I think it's the rack and pinion itself... :angry:

The red one needs a fuel pump, I believe. Nothing hitting the shradder valve when I try cranking it. I was gonna put it on last week, but my help never showed up. :angry: :angry: I need to get that thing out of my bosses garage before the end of this month. :unsure:

The dp? Downpipe? I was looking to get a fixed crossover pipe, which I did. And for a total steal. The dealer wants $1,500 for a pipe that will break again in less than a year, Jeff M wants $425 (all be it his is VERY good), and the one I bought repaired off this kid (old flex joints cut out, new ones welded it) I picked up for.....$35!! I also got some 8mm Taylor wires from him for $20 with about 1 mile on them! :mellow:

Say....have you ever done a fuel pump? If so, willing to give me a hand this Sunday? It's not hard, but it's a little difficult undoing the straps and lowering the gas tank single handedly.

I've never changed one before, either, but I've been studying the factory service manual, and it looks pretty straight forward. Spare set of hands would be usefull, but next weekend is when our business is moving, so there wouldn't be any room/time. Let me see what happens this weekend, and I'll let you know.

Maybe I can get Mr. Hick to help me. I mean....if he can build a 10 second 3100 GP with no mods....he could probably change the fuel pump without dropping the tank...
