Look at the gas gauge, it drops from 7/8's to 3/4 just in that one run..

Wow 12's right there. With a 2.1 60 ft and 100 mph in "low" 12's he should easily sweep up the cash. I call steep ass hill, I'm no dummy, cmon.

He would probably be out running 12s if his tranny hadn't taken a poo and if there was a track within a reasonable distance of here.

as for the downpipe, i actually didn't have much trouble making it at all, just a flux core wire feed welder and an angle grinder, and 2 3" mandrel U bends off of jegs i think. Got it made in an afternoon with the car on jackstands, comparatively, it was waaaay harder to make the turbo headers by a long shot, total pita

qft right there

atm i dont think it's 12s with the 9 psi im running (even if the tranny didn't fail), maybe low 13s, it's gonna take a bit more boost imo

and btw, a steep ass hill? way to go and call bs on someone for no reason, this is why i don't post **** like this up, if i had a closer track i probably would have just turned the boost up and ran 12s without having to worry if my car died, but as it is, even if i win the pot, it's only going to pretty much half cover the cost just to go down to the completely crappy track in kearney nebraska

no hills just a good straight, i never noticed the gas gauge before, it definitely doesn't drain that much from just one wot run...a/f is decent and not obscenely rich by any means

Honestly, I wouldn't feel bad for you at all if you come on here sometime in the future showing pics of your car totaled from high-speed crash, or even if you hurt yourself

It's not like sk8r posted this thread... he didn't ask for feedback... so you can probably turn down the hate a little bit.

Furthermore, I don't think anyone on here is concerned whether someone on the internet feels bad about their death in a car accident.

He posted the video on youtube, he wanted other people to see what he did.

Easy for you to say, I'm sure. I bet you'd feel just slightly different if one of your friends or a family member was injured or killed by some a-hole who was driving 120 mph in the middle of the night.

stock trans was fine.....for a while , it's still drivable but slips in 2nd and 3rd gear now under full throttle

I have a spare trans that'll be going in, just need to install the blue plate specials atm

the turbo i had on before was a t3 turbo off of a grand national...all of the other videos on there are of that setup
