That familia could run 11's with his eyes closed, then hit a auto x course and tear the **** outta that. My car is still nothing to write home about, still breaking her in and still waiting for my cams. Prolly only around 300hp as it sits.

Get a friend to do an in car vid too with you driving!

300whp is my goal, but with a smaller turbo.

OK guys, I fucked up big time. Saturday night I started the torsen swap at about 6pm (alone with the car on Jack stands). Every nut and bolt broke my ***** the whole time. Finally finished up around 830 or so. After picking up some royal purple and filling up the diff I had to take it for a quick spin (without a camera of course). I pull outta my street, and get onto the highway near by. Cars running great at 15psi, new Diff feels great. I'm cruising along nice and slow when what pulls up next to me? A 2007 Carrera S with a GT3 body package, I just about **** myself. Im thinking "Well, lets really see if you know how to build a car Chris....." We slow down to about 50, I down shift into 3rd, he takes the hit. I slam the pedal down, door to freaking door 3rd and 4th gears. Finally he starts pulling me in 5th at around 100mph or so. By 125mph he put 2 car lengths on me. I was wicked pumped about how my little car held up against an expensive *** super car like that. Any how, moral of the story, turn boost up before you test drive and always record test drives.......boo for my fail!
