A Quick TC!
Yes I didnt know such a thing existed either, but I just ran one. We lined up at about 40ish, I took the hit cause well I have an a4 in an lt1 so roll races arent my strong suit and i just wanted to go while it was clear. so i hit it. when i started i was at the back of his front fender so we werent exactly even. so as i hit he does the same, i jumped out so that his nose was at my door he stayed there and maybe even creeped up just a bit but every time he shifted he would lose a little ground then make it up by the end of the gear. it stayed that way to around 110 when we shut it down.
so i meet up with the kid, turns out that he has a turbo, which i already knew obviously, at 8.5 psi exhaust turbo back no cats and all the supporting mods. anyone have an idea what kind of power that would make i know they start with 171 crank. i am sure he would have been no problem from a dig but i was impressed.
my car is a 93 z28 a4 hooker catback, qtp cutout, k&n cai, vortec elbow, high flow cat, tb bypass, tb airfoil, rk sport ss hood

To be honest its a small engine on 8.5psi I cant imagine it to be more then 220 at the ground....It looks like your pretty much stock so that race makes sence. Do you have any numbers?

thats around what i was thinking he would make and yea i am pretty much stock. i was still suprised though i have pulled sti's and evo's from a roll, not hard pulls but a full car at least on both and the tc hung better, i guess thats the awd killing those cars

Would have to know which turbo it was in order to get an idea of the power being made.

good run those 4 bangers with nx or boost hold with us pretty well, just remember that's 5000 grand more in the car he spent with what would be an easy 2000 for you to put him in his place.

with all the shit he had done to that car the turbo and all the other performance stuff, + all the appearance things he had carbon fiber body kit, suspension rims ect... i'd say he had at least 10 g's in that car probably a whole lot more. the funny thing is that my car probably cost the same as the total cost of his turbo and install, 5 g's
