I'm not being an ***. Because I actually like Matt. I've hung out with him and chatted with him. He's not a bad guy at all.

But the shop that did his dyno / tuning is the same shop that claims if you properly tune the car, stock rods will last at over 400 rwhp and also claim to have tuned a DSM ecu in a Stock N.A. BP to something like 180hp.

So I take all the HP claims with a grain of salt.

The shop that does his dyno/tuning does get stock BPs to last over 400whp. But these are street cars with very little timing and oversized turbos, often in Proteges. Literally every other platform with BPs in them outside of a Miata gets away with making a lot more power on stock motors than we do. Those platforms also don't get used like ours do.

Definitely Fisher Price My First Disneyjet numbers, though.

this video is a perfect example of why I want to ban every single member on this site with an exhaust dump in front of the windshield -- for when their 1.6L lets go and covers it with oil.

I also just made a new rule. Next person that posts about this car and writes "stock head" will get banned.


I had to ban BP from our facebook page and all their disciples.

This thread is why I love this place.

Thanks for a good chuckle, Scott.

I finally bothered to watch the video because of Scott's comment.
In ricer style, I'm wondering if he thinks he beat the Nova because he passed him before the end of the track?
