AWD Ion

So there was just a flamewar thread that started on this topic. Then tonight someone told me about a AWD Ion. I called BS. But behold here it is.

That's awesome. It's a 2003, so that was before the redline came out. I wonder how much of the design of that went into the redline. Obviously not the awd, but they never say what was under the hood.

16:18 mins is where the ion is. So you don't have to watch the whole thing if you don't want to. Pretty interesting car.

When you realize that turbo lag sucks you man up and get twincharged!

I like the way the headlights are tied together as well. The front of the hood is just a steady curve and with the blacked out section between the lights it give it a nice clean look.

GM used a Hahn Turbo system in that awd rally concept

GM Racing

GM Racing is currently using our systems on two of their own cars. One is a killer street-strip Sunfire, and the other is a Saturn Ion AWD rally-type car. GM dyno-tested the Ion engine at 250HP with our standard kit on 92 octane. Higher boost netted 330HP!

Hahn RaceCraft turbo manifolds were also used by GM Racing on their new Stage V Cobalts for 2005’s racing season.

I think the original "flame" was mostly/partially to the cost and not being worth it. At least thats still my argument

I like the headlights, steering wheel, turbo'd 2.2, and thats about it. Roll cage is cool of course. I dont care for the flared fenders or rear bumper or the WRX fog lights. Also, the PEP Boys (Civic standard issue) Tach has to go
