Once upon a time I owned a 1994 Beretta Z26. It was my first car in 1998 at he ripe age of 16. By 2007 I had spliced, welded, and dinged the car enough that it was time to get rid of it. There is still a cardomain page setup for it which I haven’t touched since about 2003.
The only big thing not mentioned on that page is that I built, installed and tuned a V3 Megasquirt stand alone engine controller. After a few years of working out the kinks the car was respectably fast. Launching never went well for me with the wheel hop, but second and third gear were a riot. I never had it dynoed and I never took it to the dragstrip after it was in its best shape. I did have several rolling races with a friends SRT-4 Neon with a stage 2 kit running 100 octane (300hp). Here is a clip of how that went if I started in 3rd gear at about 30/35mph:
The quick list of modifications are:
- 3.4 V6, pushrod, year 2000
- Getrag 282 5 speed manual swap with Spec stage 3 clutch
- Custom EATON M90 supercharger setup
- Tight suspension with poly everything
- Lost about 200 lbs
