As mentioned earlier and in typical Fairyflower fashion, I bet he decides to convert the car to FWD the day before dyno.

But seriously, how much faster does the car feel from the previous 400whp setup Min?
I know your butt dyno is mis-calibrated from all the poundings it receives, but is it OMGWTF faster or just "definitely feels quicker" or what?

I'll bet its at 500ish

It is a fuccking lot faster. At the 3/400 whatever, hp before, i was like ok this is pretty quick.

It was quick But i never felt death breathing down my neck. I have been near death several times and i feel like i really have to watch it in this car now. Wheelspin at the top of third is no joke. Btw the rs3s work great even in cold weather. Just give em a little heat in first an second and u r gtg. Ish.

I am snowboarding now but when i get back i will turn up the boost to 35psi and take a straight road 12345 gear pull vid like you all want.

This high power endeavour has convinced me that this community needs to stop -----ing around with crap low boost and small turbos. Its stupid. More power is more fun. The end. If i can do it then so can all you more experienced folks. There is no excuse.

Have you ever been on a sportbike? I think if your after the "so fast death sits in your passenger seat" feeling, you might want to look into a literbike.

cool story bro.
you're missing the point though, and I doubt you'll ever "get it": most here don't want that much power. I know its hard to understand that someone might not want 10000000000hp on their tiny *** short wheelbased car, but tis how it is.

But I think your car finally reached its glory days and we can finally stop making fun of you for failing hard. Maybe

We need that vid and we need that dyno.

Its different. Not any less scary, don't get me wrong, but one could never compare a bike to a car. They are so different in every way that its not even apples vs oranges, its more like apples vs pumpkins.

What I was getting at is Min seems to like the danger, if he like being near death then something crazy fast with no protection seems to be something he'd like.

I heard "liter bike" this whole thread. Do you guys mean "Lighter" as in weight? Or "Liter" as in 1,000cc's a.k.a. 1 liter engine displacement?
If you're talking Min's car vs. a 1,000cc crotch rocket, then I'd have to ask what year crotch rocket?

It's an 800 hp turbo, but does it make 800 hp?
I had a '97 ducati 916 back in the day that was mildly worked. The only bike I ever lost to in a drag was a 03? Kawasaki ninja 1300? I think it was?
Honestly, I think your car (traction depending) would wipe it's *** with my bike if I still had it. If you want to race a 1,000cc bike, I'd say race a GSX-R 1,000.

I don't think I will make 800hp to the wheels. Realistically, given my stock cams, small i/c piping, and gutted intake manifold I think 650hp @ 40psi would be great. I'm also running pump...

And I think 650 to the wheels would be just a little bit more than great.

Sorry, no offense but a 97 ducati aint **** by todays standards.
Modern (06+) liter bikes are just retarded powerful and fast. Not even a comparison to an old ducati.

That said I think if Min is anywhere over 500 and assuming he gets proper traction and drives it well, I think he has a really good chance against a liter bike.

Yes 93 octane plus all the meth I can flow. IC piping is BEGI standard so like 3/4". I think it is 2" at some points. Depending on dyno results I may upgrade to 3" throughout.

Well I hope so. I have to back up my license plate.

Other than dynoing, I also want to go to the drag strip. I reallllly want to see what MPH I put down. That will tell the power number tale more than the dyno number.
