Kid with BRZ called me out... lol
 
Kid in my school was revving his stock exhaust BRZ at me called me out to roll race with his only mod being an intake, me being stage 2 gladly accepted. Don't know what he was thinking to ask me but I'm sure it was a little embarrassing after I got 2 cars immediately on him and just let off the throttle to coast. Was expecting to get a "Nice race man! That car is quick" but instead he said "Oh we'll see how that car does when I get an exhaust and tune" :thumbdown: Will get a video for when he comes back "tuned"

Tell him to come back with a turbo kit.

He's going to need a turbo to hang. At that point your are going to need atleast k04 to hang.

Even the basic turbo ones aren't fast. It's only the people with an 80 trim turbo and build motor making any decent power. And then they are replacing transmissions every other day. They were meant to go around turns, not be fast!

This is so accurate!! I constantly was on a guys bumper at the track on the straights if not passing him, but once a turn happened he got a car length or two on me.

I agree with this.

I can only vouch for this kit, as its the only one I have any reference to:

but it will cost you an arm and a leg with bolt ons to reach that power. Not even worth it to me, but that is just me.

Does this stuff happen to you guys a lot? I swear every week at least two people ask to run them... then again, these are mostly V6 cars/other 4 bangers.

sterkrazzy 09-29-2016 11:14 AM

lol, a tune and an exhaust on a 200 hp NA motor...that'll be some sick power

Injen1us 09-29-2016 11:37 AM

LOL...brz kids need to stick to living vicariously through TJ Hunt cause they will never be fast.

After beating a few 350s, Subis, mustangs and a c6 Vette I have built up a bit of a reputation. Unfortunately I have to drive a ways to get people to do a friendly roll

"TJ Hunts BRZ is fast, I guess mine is as well"

Not me, never happens.

The last time anybody wanted to play it was clear that they were just having fun because it was another VW. Just a fun run through the gears with another like-minded enthusiast.

They do show pretty good gains with bolt-ons and tune:

I'd bet one could give a stock GTI a pretty close run.

40Hp and 50ft/lbs with intake, exhaust and tune? I'd be curious to see how that translates to real world gains. I remember reading how RX-8's would be boosted and still only show relatively moderate gains at the track.
