    Finally raced a cobra...

    So a kid my friend knows wanted to race me in a cobra. He has a pulley and a few other things done to the car. So he asked me to meet him in the parking lot of the short hills mall. I show up and I see him with the hood popped taking up 4 spots. He said I could look around and i did. I saw a pulley, intake exhaust and a few other things. Then he asked me to open my hood and i did. He saw wut i had and said "Dam this thing is moddified." Then he noticed the nitrous kit and said "U cant run me with that" I told the kid "i cant run u w/o the bottle, but its ok for u to have a s/c?" He said he wanted to go motor/motor, but i knew id get my ass handed to me. I told him to take off the s/c then run motor/motor. I told him "Well run motor/motor, but after that im spraying" He agrees and we take off to line up on 24. We went from 40 1...2....3BAM, in seconds i heard the whhhiine of the s/c and he had a solid 3 cars on me. THEN, we get back and he said "I gotta go home." I told him "I wanna use my bottle, i never said anything about u using your blower. Finally I convinced him and we go again. From 40ish and I hit the button and by the top of 4th i had about 3-3.5 cars on him. He does a ricer flyby and flips me the finger. I dont get it? What did i do wrong? I told him its really not fair running motor/motor because im N/A and hes F/I.

    Stop with your car is supercharged and my is not crap. That's the way they come from the factory. If it comes 4turbo ,V6-V8-V10-V12 Twin turbo that's the way it comes. Gm has used supercharging and turbocharging for years.

    All sums up to run what you brung. I'm not going to gimp my car for a 3 cylinder Geo much less something that itself is modded.

    whenever i need to. I can hang w/ just about anything i see on a day to day basis. 200 is the max i would go on the stock LS1 bottom end. None the less, i killed him fairly easily. He told me hed call me in a few weeks when he gets his steggi ported IV.

    The same thing that would happen if the Cobra came with 5.7 liters instead of 4.6.

    But it doesn't. And the LS1 doesn't have a blower. And both are silly, pointless arguements.

    LOL. Oh...Gee....I didn't know I was pulling the "whole liter card". Was pretty sure I was simply using that as an example.

    But I'll defer to your obvious expertise on stupid retarded arguements.

    We all must aspire to something....even Ladies.



    PS....200 HP worth of N2O = hyperpathetic cast pistons on borrowed time, IMHO. But good luck anyway!

    It is a run what your brung situation, Although what happens when you run out of bottle? I think the S/C keeps boosting. Nothing wrong with cheap HP, Except you run out as quick as you can get it. I personally will spend the extra buck to get something worth while as for a turbo. Nothing beats real power Vs Bottle power. Hell its like Viagra its never there when you need it.

    I agree, but since i cant get headers the car doesnt have H/C. If i could have gotten headers, i wooda thrown a cam in it last year, and might have benn working on heads right now. Id luv to spank him w/o the bottle, but lets face it, if u dont have full bolt ons a h/c, its gonna be tough to beat.
