Not new, but introducing myself

I've been posting on this forum here and there, but never really introduced myself. So I figured I'd post a little bit about me...well more about my cars ;)

I'm 25 and have been through a number of cars since I was 17. Here's a quick rundown of what I can remember...

1) 1998 Camaro V6 auto (first car...I knew nothing)
2) 1987 Blazer K5 Silverado. Lifted, big tires, big motor, lots of rust, lots of fun
3) 2002 Acura RSX. My first "new" car that I took out a loan on. Fun to drive, good on gas.
4) 1999 VW GTI VR6. 200K+ miles and still ran fine! Lowered, exhaust, subs.
5) 1995 Talon TSI AWD. Where I first started to really mod cars. Mostly stock.
6) 2001 Acura CL. It was cheap and I thought I was cool.
7) 2006 Chevy Cobalt SS. Supercharged. My first brand new car. Smaller pulley, bigger injectors, and a MAF translater went a long way.
8) 1995 Talon TSI AWD #2. This is my baby. More info below. Still own.
9) 1990 Talon TSI FWD. Bought this not running to fix up, but it required massive motor work so I sold it.
10) 2003 Evo 8. I loved this car. Mostly stock. Good tires. Took it autox-ing. Totalled it into a tree because of a freakin' deer.
11) 2003 VW GTI 1.8t. Bought this after I totalled the evo for cheap. Good car but needed some maintenance. Decided I hate working on german cars.
12) 2008 Chevy Cobalt SS turbocharged. They are cheap, it's brand new, looks good, and goes pretty fast. Still stock. Currently own.

Ok, so that's it I think. I may have forgotten a car or two. Right now I still own the 08 cobalt and 95 talon #2.

Cobalt:
99.999% stock
TWM short shifter
9K miles
14.2 @101MPH

Talon:
In the midst of a motor swap, but will be:
6 bolt swap
Ross 8.5:1 pistons
Eagle Rods
Clevite bearings
BC 272 cams
FP 3150 turbo
Walbro 255lph fuel pump
880cc injectors
DSMLink
SSAC FMIC
2gb front bumper
Eibach springs
Tokiko shocks
Various gauges including WB
Custom shortened short shifter with shifter bushings
Other misc DSM mods
12.5 @ 103MPH

I'm hoping to have the Talon back on the road within a month's time. When the weather gets warmer I'll post up some pics of these beauties.

Anyway, that's me!

I've seen you around on a few dsm forums if i am correct. How do you like the new turbo 'balt over the s/c one? Post up some pics when you can. I'd like to see a few of your cars.

Thanks! I've been around enough car forums to know not to piss off people or ask stupid questions. Use the search button, etc. If any of you have been on the DSMTuners forum you'll know what I mean. Sometimes they can be like nazi's with the rules and such. I spend the whole last summer trying to get a positive rating so I could post in more forums...crazy...

Hackettstown NJ FTW!

Thanks guys for the welcome. I have to dig around my 'puter for pics of the old cars. Then I'll post them and some of the current cars. Hopefully in a month or so I can post pics of the Talon while it's running!

I love the new 'balt compared to the old one. Acceleration is much smoother and more powerful up top. Handling is a million times better. I like the new seats better than the old leather ones. I'm not a huge fan of the radio layout and the cheap plastic, but you get what you get for that price. Also the OEM Continental tires are poop. I had a few issues when I first bought the car, but it seems to be doing just fine now.

I'd like to do a few minor mods to it like TBE, hard IC piping, and eibach springs. That's probably it.

hey man, no offense taken. everyone is entitled to their own point of view. but why would you want to keep it supercharged? with the supercharged models, there wasn't much room for improvement without swapping to another supercharger. Yea you could gain 50 or so hp with just a pulley and injectors, but there wasn't much after that. with the new turbo design and new direct fuel injection system they have, there is much more room for improvement. you can run the stock turbo and run about 350whp. a turbo swap will take you until the motor blows up.
