    Eclipse VS Bird

    What would be the likely outcome of this race...
    1999 3.8l Firebird A4 Y87 pkg
    Mods- K&N Filter, cold-air induction kit, superchip reprogrammer, extened shift kit tune...

    Mid-Late 90s (Second Gen) Mitsubishi Eclipse 5 spd
    Mods- Cold Air Intake, Tune, Chip, exhaust

    The guy used to drive a BMW 540 and I stayed right beside it, and he claims to have beat it...

    Yet the guy also claims to have beaten a certain Yellow VR-4 that was running a 12.7 1/4 almost a year ago on the stock turbos...
    The other day he was racing a newer white , I believe nissan Sentra (all riced up) and he only beat it by like 3 cars?!?!?!?
    I was right behind him, and I was choking on his rich smelling oil burning exhaust fumes, having to hit my brakes while he was racing the guy...

    I mean I've heard this car is FAST, but I've never really seen him race anything FAST... He only races what he can know he can beat...
    What are these eclipses modded to the extent that he is capable of running?

    Turbo or non turbo is the biggest question.

    If its a turbo, you lose. If its N/A, I cant believe he would race someone.

    The turbo ones arent that fast, i would just race him and see. The 98+3.8 firebirds are supposed to be mid to low 15second cars, just race him and see what happens.

    mine last ran a 15.26 1/4 with just a cold air, k&n, and a reprogram

    I've since added the extended shift kit, and a tune

    but anyway, his car is n/a...
    his only advantage is that his is a 5spd, and mine's an A4, but we'll just go from a dig.

    what's this car putting out probably? 17 seconds?

    Dude even if he was turbo, you would win. Put money on the race, you got him. I had the same mods on my V6 camaro and I know what they are capable of...

    lol, mustang gt's are horrible slow...yeah with a some money invested they can be really fast, but man stock they're just horrible.
    My buddy has a 99 honda prelude 5pd 2.2 VTEC, and all it has is an intake. I beat him by about 3 cars, and he just blows the doors off of a 99-04 Mustang GT

    Hmm something doesnt sound right about that. Those GTs are suppose to be at low 14s. Your car could be in the mid 14s. Making that prelude high 14s to low 15s or so.

    Unless all the mustang GTs he races are just terrible drivers with ported exhuast tips hehe

    yeah he's only raced autos, a manual gt is hard to find around here....
    his car ran a 15.6 back before his tune

    I should be running like a 14.5-14.9 now though shouldn't I? that's what I'm guessing
