THATS RIGHT GEO POWER!

Here is a pic of my daily driver/winter beater '91 Geo Storm w/ 1.6L 4 banger. I'm tryin' to cheese it out with the HUGE chrome tip and Canadian Tire hubcaps. Why? I dunno? Guess it is the withdraw of not having the BMW. Oh well. I'll have the BMW back soon.

BTW I have blured out the plate since I have has some experiances with it. LOL!

Re: THATS RIGHT GEO POWER!

Here is mine that is been sitting in my garage for the last year.

It's nice to see a 90-91 body. You don't see many of them here in Canada.

And of course technically there is no such thing as GEO POWER. Isuzu POWER more like it. Yeah, 7200rpm Redline, baby!

Yeah it is an American car. Got it on the road for under $2000. And for the Geo power thing...I like the sound of that even under the hood it says Isuzu. LOL! I'm curious what I could do to get a little more performance out of it? Any suggestions?

Re: Re: Re: THATS RIGHT GEO POWER!

Well, usually people do the following:

1) underdrive pulley
2) cold air intake (home made 15bucks+ filter)
3) headers
4) exhaust
5) RS engine swap. (that will bring you into high 13s instantly)

As a piece of advice, I would leave it the way it is. Don't put any money into a base model. If you had a GSI then it would be a bit better, modifiying the base 1.6l 90Hp engine is a waste of money and time, and in 2 years it will become a rust backet anyway.

Steve Lockett, the guy in the video, started with a 91 GSI, swapped a used 150.000mile stock RS engine, put a t3/t4 turbo on it, cranked the boost to 30psi, put some slicks on, some wheelie bars, and ran 10.9s. (I want to see any Honda engines cope with such abuse for 2 years that he spent racing his Storm) Unless you are willing to do a swap from the RS, don't bother with modding it. Use it as a winter beater.
