You sure about that... I was there working on it today.

Actually it's all disassembled now. I will be porting the exhaust manifold tomorrow and then I will be working on reworking some of the minor details than need to be handled.

Good deal, I can not wait to see it when it is done. I say 312.5 hp at the same PSI.

nope spoken like someone who got bored drag racing.


I should have said "proves nothing, to me..." lots of people really like drag racing, Im just out of will for drag racing. I still enjoy going to a drag race here and then to watch.

driving on the road today, regardless if you are street racing, is a hazard!

I'd rather be drag racing down a 1 mile factory road then driving 60 mph on NJ's highways anytime

Yeah there is a yellow car around here with flames on the side, huge greddy sticker, 2-foot wing and a body kit. I have looked at the car before, no turbo... I see HER all the time, oh and the car's name is the official pimp-mobile.

I guess driving on nice smooth twisty mountain roads such as the dragon @
9\10 is okay since I am not racing anyone.

disclaimer:I don't drive 9\10 on mountain roads, but just wondering how many who are against street racing, don't mind driving that hard on twisty roads?
