i've been reading up around this board, and seeing more potential in my lil'ol'justy than before... i'm planning to change the stock muff, maybe advance the timing a click or 2... what else can i do w/wrenches & for less than a paycheck to get my car back in the 20-second 1/4 mile range...? NOS...? big wing...? stickers...?

DEFINITELY look into stickers, they have the best HP increase pricewise of any mod on the market!! :banana:

Seriously though, I wonder what a small turbo on low boost would accomplish... And that's not expensive, junkyard turbos are diamonds in the rough ;)

And while we're on the subject of Justy Turbos, is there really such thing as a Justy Turbo from the factory? I've heard rumors about them, but nothing more...

I have heard from reliable sources that there was indeed a turbo justy. Don't think I have seen one, but I believe the person who told me about them.

i have a "new" justy exh. manifold i bought on e-bay a while back... i wonder if i could make an adapter plate and put a small turbo on it... ct-9 toyota starlet...? IHI from a chevy sprint turbo...? i just saw one sell for $150, recently... make a nice paperweight... -lol-
the sprint turbos were 3cyl... so's the suzuki cappucino, w/turbo... this might make a nice project, if i didn't need the car this winter... right now i just need to tune it up, and winterize... maybe the muffler, now, since it's so cheap...
i think i will look into the ozified lift kit, next week...
thanks again for your help...
