During hard acceleration, the gas moves backwards in the tank, which could account for the drop in fuel guage. Depending on where the float is located.

The floats are located in the front of the tank with the pick up. Luanch too hard with not much fuel and you starve the pump Thats moving though, get a GT speedo and it won't look like you are going so fast, thats why all my vids suck

JK, get those lights fixed and start pushing that thing!!!

after watching the vid a few times, I have to say your top end kind of sucks. It took 5 seconds to get from 100-120. I know its only a SE trans and the gearing sucks but I think you are running out of fuel or something. It just seems like once you hit 3rd gear it falls flat on its face like a N/A grand am does....

meh, and no i'm not running out of fuel....

also the lights are related to the missing egr valve and a bad wheel speed sensor, so i don't really care about them

^ I didn't even think about that. That actually makes a lot of sense I don't know how you would make a full 3" exhaust work my plans where just to go 3" into a cut out. And after looking at angrysk8rs signature he just has an open downpipe.

Bingo. I don't see how finishing it to the back would be difficult though...

There's plenty of room for a 3inch exhaust from turbo to downpipe to the back of the car..............

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.
