Default 293 HP MIATA VS. golf Vr6 turbo

http://videos.streetfire.net/hottest...547438a1c2.htm

wait is this true.....I mean I thought a miata with that kinda power would at least keep side by side.... almost 300 hp and he was left that far behind.....I thought the miata driver would at least be on his ***....

street racing is gayed out, and it was probably a close race. I drove a 2.9l t3/4 vr6 for a while...they are scary fast.

Why don't they post the whp of the VR6T? They can make some insane power on those motors. I got a buddy who has a Golf with a VR6 and he is going turbo (race car, too) and looking for 500-600WHP.
VR6 Golf Road Racer

I am willing to bet that VR6 was close to 400whp pulling him that fast. I didn't see the Miata brake before the VW passed him, so that was just a ******* FAST VW.

Ditched the Hpa system. So far on the way I have a T4 60-1 with a .58 on center housing and P trim turbine wheel, Tial 38mm, some nice Magnaflow 3" exhaust goodies, a Zeitronix ZT2 with to monitor a/f, boost and EGT, a Clutchnet Kevlar sprung hub disc and beefy pp as well as all the other fun FI stuff like couplers clamps and all that BS. Should do 400 whp on pump gas pretty easily.
