I have a teal 93 that is bone stock in eastern Canada (ottawa). Had a pricey paint job last fall so now mostly a garage lizard used only in summer. Pathetic or what?!

My car is totally stock except a new head unit, turbo timer, tint, boost gauge, MBC (not currently in use), and gutted CATS. I guess what WOULD make my car non stock is the gutted CATS...


Oh yeah, i almost forgot, i have an HKS SSQV bov.

well the st205 is bone stock except for Legalis R exhaust which is very nice and could look stock as tip is not huge ..

here is my issue .. since it is a st205 would you guys rather see a built st205 making well over 300hp or bone stock so everyone can see what it had from the factory .. i do have a much improved C&R racing heat exchanger so adding more boost will be easier w/ cooler i/c

with body kit and rhd i am sure to draw a lot of attention compared to st185 and st165 which can blend in with traffic ..i guess will need to back up looks with Hp but i don't street race or any of that crap and impressing a 20 something is not reason i wanted car ..

of course i may get married in next year or 2 and i am sure my GF would love me to keep st205 stock and don't turbo my 3.3l v6 mr2 .. (more $$$$ for her to spend on purses)

My JDM ST165 is mostly stock.

Here is what has been done to the car:
OZ Racing rims (on the car when I got it)
Tinted windows (re-tinted since the tint was terrible before)
Pillar mounted gauges with Air/Fuel and Boost
Compustar 2-way paging alarm with turbo timer
Turbo timer (came with the car, but I don't use it now that I have the alarm)
Shifter knob (to replace the hideous wooden one that came with the car).

Pioneer CD/MP3/WMA playing deck (can't remember the model)
Stock speakers replaced with Pioneer ones
Sony amp (can't remember the model)
Dragster 12" sub in a Mega Hertz sealed enclosure

To be installed next:
Apexi air intake
Manual boost controller (at some point)

As far as I can tell, mine's totally stock, including rims and radio. I'm trying to decide whether to keep it that way; the reports that reliability ends when "stock" ends are not encouraging.

Definitely Modified, but not heavy yet... I wouldn't say.

-Straight Intake, Apex Filter
-3" Aussie Exhaust
-ST205 gearbox
-JDM ST165 motor
-Clutchmaster Stage III
-Fidanza Racing Flywheel
-Tenzo Racing Wheels
-T04E - 50 trim turbo
-ATS racing cams & cam gears
-Gutted TVIS
-Poly bushings
-ST185 Diff w/Poly diff bushing
-Custom gauge faces w/aftermarket boost gauge

There is some other stuff in there I missed but I don't think that's heavy yet, pretty close though.

Does rust count as a Mod? If so then it's heavily modified.

It's a big struggle to try to keep a stock car stock... But I've been pretty good about it. The trick is to get one (or two) cars to modify and play around with. That gets the "mod" bug out of your system...

So yeah, my ST185 is stock and I am going to keep it completely stock. Doing a restoration on it, replacing all not-perfect parts with new parts-- which of course probably costs the same amount of money as modding it, but I think it'll be nice to have a stock AllTrac to show to people 5, 10 years from now when there won't be many stock ones around... I just ordered about $500 worth of maintenance/replacement parts for it. All stock. Heh.

Depends, i could argue it both ways!

Stock 205 motor apart from pod in a stock 165. There are a few little things but nothing i would call a performance mod.

- Custom bonnet bulge with integrated (genuine) Group A vent
- TWM short shifter
- Technafit SS lines
- Whiteline front strut brace
- 2.5" cat back exhaust

Only things i want to do engine performance wise are EBC and re-install my Aussie DP. Once that is done im going to throw on some TEIN SS's and some rims, most prolly going to machine new hubs to fit the P1s i have.
