Damn man...that thing just scoots down the track! The white mk4 was charghing hard, just got owned out of the hole. It would be fun to take Chris' car out on the twon one night, no one would see you coming...
I'll give a completely honest representation of the car when it was running
Chris's words (basicly) (this was right after I tightened the wastegate)
should have been about 420rwhp
Get in, start it up, idle smoothly, take off gently and go towards the
freeway, then chris shifted gently into 4th gear and rolled gently to full
throttle. The car started making boost at 65mph, and at 70mph the
boost hit 15psi, the rear tires lit up and the car drifted gently sideways.
Yes, just rolling into the throttle it'll slide sideways. Before the car's
"demise" it was one of the fastest cars in the southeast. It has recently
had an engine fire, blown turbo and 0 compression in the #5 piston. it
needs LOTS of work to be put back together. I've been talking to chris
as he and I worked very hard to get this car where it was, I'm wanting to
buy the car from him and fix it to its former glory. I've got 1st dibbs and
I'll do the car justice if I get it.
Oh yeah, and we used to street race all the time. No-one ever really
took us seriously unless the'd seen us before. If they had they were
useually scared to race us. I think the cobra with N2O, who was spraying
and still lost was the most suprized.
"What in the hell did you do to that thing?"
Officer: "ok, where the nitrous boy, and BTW you're under arrest"
Me: "no Nitrous sir."
(still got arrested for reckless driving, but that's another story.)
"That a MKII Supra?"
"that thing got a 7M in it?"
I nodded again
Me nodding again and grinning
"damn I thought my car broke something you left me so fast"
"I still can't believe that old hunk of shit left me like I was standing still"
(after taking a ride)
"god-DAMN... I don't smoke, but I think I need a cigarette"
(By me the first time I rode in it after all our work)
"OK!, OK!, fucking christ! Thats it! I'm selling my 450rwhp MKIII, and
getting one of these, this is fucking insane!"
My 450MKIII wouldn't have stodd a chance against the MKII, it was a
WHOLE different car.
Haha! I can relate to how fast +400 rwhp mk2 can be, well, more like 350 rwhp as I haven't pushed past 350 yet (still running 15psi on 93 octane)! Sounds like you were using race gas alot! I guess I'll have to start using race gas and turn boost up to +18 psi to get to your level. Just don't wanna do it 'til I get more dyno time!
Now thats the type of videos I like to see....that first Mk2 barley squeezed by, but winnings winning right? and DAMN! Norbie......that shit squats like a dog on staroized scrapin his ass on the floor.
