Hi guys, instead of overtaking a different thread trying to sell a Caldina (which got free bumps anyway smile.gif ) here's a bit of a show off of my other car.

It's a 2003 (TJ Series II) Magna AWD Sports.
3.5 L V6 engine, factory 2.4" exhaust & headers & crappy factory Y pipe (it's a t-intersection instead of a flowing join)
AWD system is a combination of EVO 5/6 or 6/7 transfer cases and diffs.

With the mods being:
Lukey Sports muffler & twin square tips
18" wheels
front strut brace (made a noticeable difference with stock rims & tyres)
front DBA 4000 slotted rotors
1 solid poly engine mount

the AWD system is fun. It tends more towards RWD when pushed to the edge.
It can get a bit hairy with off-camber roundabouts in the rain, trying to make 1700kg change directions 3 times. I have once pushed it too hard and tank slapped into oblivion (well not quite, but 22 degree toe-in on a back wheel is pretty bad)

Pics:



Performance: factory says 165kW but I'm dubious about the Y joiner in the exhaust, it's probably choking 10kW out of it.
Generally the AWD registers 100-110kW at the wheels on Dynos.
Mine's been to WSID - it's a 15.8 second car which isn't a slug, but not impressive.
The impressive part is that it's quicker than an 13 second XR6 turbo in the wet smile.gif

now you know my daily, you can say hi if you see me - generally in the Hills area.

Sure is.
And although many years ago, in my eyes, Magnas became the new Volvo, I still like this one. smile.gif

But soon it will be a Magna with coilovers ! smile.gif

I parked at the shops the other day and got out, saw that I'd put the nose about 20cm over the top of the gutter and there was about 2cm clearance under the front bar.
Now I'm dreading what my depth perception will be like when parking if I take it down with the new suspension smile.gif
I'm thinking about 1.5 to 2" at the front and 1" at the rear.
