From the GRM Vault: A Dual-Engine Honda CRX and 10 Other Cool Cars Hit the Dyno

To zoom in, hold down the CTRL (or Command on a Mac) key and then hit the “+” key.

This photo cracks me up for some reason. Like JG is obviously waiting for a victim to sit in that chair for... something.

That CRX appeared in Car & Driver right around the time that I got my first subscription. I wonder if it still exists?

Super Synchronicity. It does. I believe it's still in FL, so perhaps Joe still owns it. I'm tempted to look him up, I've still got the original issue with that car in it.

(RX7) cutting the airbox was really 10hp gain? speed holes! and the turbo car is only 17hp more? wow

Amazing how horsepower levels are so much higher now, even when comparing these modified cars to stock cars of today.

That's back when we had GRM logo folding chairs.

I remember reading that article. I'm trying to remember whether I ever cut the airbox lid on my TurboII-It seemed so easy and so cool I sure planned to.

I contacted some ... contacts and now know more about Super Synchronicity's whereabouts. Unfortunately, the car is in storage in "not running but I'm totally going to fix it" status Current owner - who has owned it for at least 20 years - isn't interested in selling.
