So what do you think happened to this car? It can't just disappear.
I find it surprising that a modded Kizashi like that would be off of the radar on this forum. The kind of people who would mod it/own it are the kind who would be all over online owner forums, in my opinion.
The original owner looked like he was really trying to offload it since getting the GC SRT8 (a rather badass SUV, I must say).
Given the lack of any forum involvement related to the car since over 2 years ago, I'm kind of thinking the car is no longer around. Maybe totaled in an accident or the engine exploded. Who knows. Regardless, aftermarket turbocharged cars typically don't appear to have much of a life expectancy from what I've seen.

I've found there's several very nice modded cars in HSV where the owners have no forum presence. It's not too uncommon as people are now aware of their 'online footprint' and how their car can get stolen if popular and not secured on a regular basis.

I once met a guy with a beautiful red 11s (1/4 mile) Mitsu 3000GT vr4 at a gas station. He just built the car for the fun of it and drove it to work. You almost wouldn't know unless you looked at the exhaust tips. :drive:

I can tell this is semi fake
one his dyno numbers are off even for mustang dyno. If u make 300 to the crank on a fwd car u only lose about 10-12 % power through drivetrain so he would make 270whp. :facepalm: Hence that's why road race got 290whp out of there's at 8 psi if he's running 10-11psi he should be making more. I've talked to rob at road race about this guys issues he had with the shut off and apparently the kit wasn't installed right. Rob and me are building a stage2 kit now running about 12 psi and predict 305-315 whp won't find out for few months as I'm deployed still and will make my own thread on the build with pics and everything
