I guess I could if I ran e85, put a GT5 turbo on, and some bigass cams. Please no, I do not want that to be a challenge. I want this to be the FINAL round of power modifications to my car!!!!!

178.4mph @ 8000RPM. 189.5 @ 8500RPM I think I would want to do some downforce mods before attempting that. I do have limits for my risk tolerance. FYI most of the times I was close to death were not by my conscious choice!

Also, how do you know my approximate name? Are you on Manchat?

No. While I have MT drag radials sitting on wheels in the garage, I will not be doing a hard launch at the strip. Those drag radials are for street destruction as needed. We will see what happens with the RS3 at more boost.

Nothing matters.
Not miataturbo.net and all their bull$hit. Not politics and who Scott votes for that won't be president. Not his membership and how many times He'll be banned.
In those 11 seconds or less...Min is free.

I hope to see well over 130mph. With a 4 second 60ft lol Like Sean, my goal is 13s 1/4 mile @ 150+mph

BTW scott if we go to capital or whatever together i want to line up against you and get video. I think it may look very interesting. Small "street friendly" turbo vs. "bear raping" turbo. If we launch similarly, power under the curve should show nicely.

I am fairly certain he will take you til about 4th when you'll finally blast past him going 80mph faster or something ridiculous like that.

Seen it too many times now

If I have time and if I resolve my daily driver crisis, next Saturday.

Regarding my daily, I think I will just buy another high mileage forester for around $6000 and move all my mods over and sell the one with the blown engine for $2000. I will buy a manual.

Much cheaper than $35,000 for a 335d.

Another Forester sounds like a good idea. Manual sounds even better.

Looking forward to more vids/pics.

320whp feels fantastic on mine. You've seen my plot.
370 will feel just dandy come spring and e85.

I don't intend to go any higher than that. Might as well get an STi and go for 500+ at that point, which disqualifies it from daily driver status.

lopsided turbos like the hta68 need a ton of boost to perform good. also anything with a 7cm hotside crap on a 2.5 IMO.
On pump gas, with no meth, if you want a HONEST 300-320 like me why not just replicate my setup? td06 20g 8cm of your choice or td06 18g 8cm of your choice. 750-1000 injectors. the rest you already have. You can even push yours harder if you want since you have way better gas than our **** CA 91 and probably get 330-340.
on pump gas a 16g or hta68 is better suited for the 2L's

Danym that quick, downforce is diffidently a very good idea at that speed.

I know your approximate name because I happen to be very good at utilizing modern technology to get at information, public or otherwise.






I'm just kidding, I know your approx name b/c somebody else called you that on some thread or other and I happened to see it and start using it. If you'd like me to stop for whatever reason let me know and I will.

This makes no sense to me. The link to the GSXR 1/4 mile time I posed said it did a high 9 second pass @ 148mph. Why would your car be 3 seconds faster and have the same approx trap speed?

I was thinking the ET would be faster or his trap speed would be lower. Or a combo of the two.
I'm confused, What's the inside joke that you're refering to?

a buddy of mine has a fast miata on some cheap crappy tires. he spins every gear besides 6th. ran the quarter 12.0 @ 127. Spun LITERALLY the whole way down the track. fae is a big fan of his, because he beat a liter bike and a corvette zr1 in his car. all he does is highway roll on street racing.

so fae will probably go to the track and spin his **** off to a 13.0 @ something insane like 140.

That is the , I guess joke lol
(semi-drunk post so disregard any potential errors lol)
