    SRT-4???? Did i just get my behind handed to me?

    I have bone stock LS1 A4 camaro, and for some reason i felt like my pedal wasn't working. For some reason i could have sworn i saw my co-worker's SRT4 smoke me by a car-length on the highway. We started at 60 mph, and after putting my foot in the floor, i felt there was an anchor weighing me down. After about 115-120, he had a car length on me. He says "i've got a stock turbo, with a few turbo mods, (injector and tuner). He showed me his tuner, and low and behold, i couldn't beleive it.... a gameboy?? what the heck is that? what do i need (on a reasonable budget) to embarrass this kid. I want to put him several car lengths behind me. I just bought a wet nitrous kit from HSW, that i haven't installed yet. I plan on installing it asap now, at this point, but i feel really terrible that i how to use NOS to just keep up.

    Fuel filter, plugs, wires and a lid make a world of difference.....

    If you want to beat him don't start at a 60 mph roll, that gives him the advantage, go from a dig the A-4 works best on the street from a dead stop, his fwd turbo car will just spin.

    If he wont go from a dig try this.

    Secondly, he has most likely done more street racing than you, so he knows where his car works best, and I am sure his car is a manual trans. so the gear ratios are in his favor, so to beat him at his own game you need to be showing 3,500 to 4,000 in first gear on the tach. when you start the race and shift your car manually at 6,000 into second and continue on until you hit 3rd gear.then that is the speed your car will work best at from a roll. The A-4 cars have a wide split between 1st and second gear, so they are a little sluggish from 60mph especially if you let the car shift on its on.

    The good driver mod is the best place to start, get familiar with your car, then go racing, it's cheaper and less embarrassing

    Do all the free mods first, then spend some money. just my .02

    Yeah, he claims that he "spins 1-3 gear" from a dead stop. That's why he doesn't like to race from a dead stop, but rather a roll...

    i raced a SRT-4 too, said he had a buncha mods with a upgraded turbo, maybe he was js talkin bout all the mopar stickers lol.. but i killed him from a red light at least two an a half car lenghts. id say plugs, wires, etc. too... it'll make a noticeable difference.. an gettin used to the car is a deff too.

    Thats actually pretty cool. *goes to find old GBA*

    If its slightly modded, I don't doubt that it'll spin through 3rd really...Those cars can make some serious power real easy. Hell, my grandpaws PT Cruiser (GT with the HO turbo) will spin them all the way through 1st and 2nd and into 3rd and its an auto with only a Borla exhaust and CAI.

    No...Otherwise I would have a SRT-4 and not a SS...I am saying that 500whp isn't unheard of with those cars though.

    a4s as stated above are terrible for a highway roll race. Try again to run him from a dead stop, if that doesnt work fun him from a lot lower speed. Practice.

    I installed my N20 plate today. I plan on installing the solinoids later tonight.. Somehow I think 175 extra horsepower will make a difference....

    I had an 04 srt-4 about 3 years ago... and they respond quite well with just a few mods... I had mine running 13.38 at the track with just a BC, wastegate, intake, exhaust, and tune... don't be too surprised...

    but yea, from a dead stop you should light him up without a problem....

    On stock turbo some of these SRT-4 guys run up to 22psi of boost. This is good for close to or above 300whp and torque and well into the 12s in the quarter.

    Assuming you don't already have bolt ons.... get those. Get a nice stall and a 125-150 dry shot. You should have no problem taking car of a stock turbo SRT-4 with that, even from a roll with a A4.
