Stage 2 vs Infinity Q??
 
Slowly rolled away from the light in 1st, went to 2nd not planning to race and the Infiniti next to me is going for it. I floor it in 2nd and then 3rd but clearly lose. I let off early in 4th because I didn't really need to keep losing haha. I hope it's not the 208 hp 2.0T, think it was the 300 hp V6 TT, and wish it was the 400 hp V6 TT.

Edit 2: *Infiniti not Infinity, thread title is definitely wrong.

Im guessing that's the 300HP variant.

gtimk6spd 04-30-2017 01:13 PM

Me too which kind of sucks. The GTI is lighter with slightly more torque and slightly less hp, but I still got beat pretty easily. I'm getting the 93 octane tune this week instead of 91 so hopefully that helps a little bit.

Or he could be the 400 hp version and just toyed with me, not going full throttle.

When I was basic Stage 2 (tune+downpipe only) it was literally neck and neck with the g37 Sedan 3.7L HR, Basically whoever got the jump won by a foot or two. But those v6 TT are underrated from the factory.

gtimk6spd 04-30-2017 10:53 PM

I'm a few bolt-ons past that, but still only Stage 2 91 octane. I believe that they are underrated even if he did have the jump and I decided to join the race late. I'm not upset or anything, just learned about a good engine from a car company I never paid attention to. Hopefully I'll have the chance to get a proper race against one of them in the future.

I just realized that Test n Tune is open again at my local drag strip. I'll have to try and get there next weekend if the weather is nice. See if I can beat anyone. I honestly feel like my car is not all that fast. It's definitely fun and great in the corners, but not in a straight line. I'm hoping to pull on some FoST, Speed3, and Subies since that seems to be plausible from the stories on here.

This ^

Go k04 with every bolt on and a nice tune and you'll lay waste to 85 percent of the cars on the road.

I'm pretty sure you guys are right haha. Time to start saving for that. I just re-invested in a home gym and it was a debate between that and a new turbo.

Haha well I support it! The car is still incredibly fun as is and for me a home gym is miles ahead of any local commercial gyms. It just took priority. But K04 is still in my future, it just is a matter of time really. I'm going to get my 93 octane tune tomorrow and will see how much the shop would charge for a K04 upgrade. Not going to do it yet, but just so I know their labor rates.

Everyone tells me its like $500-$600 in the USA to get it done. Up here in Canada its about $1200 at a dealer. I got it done for $500 CDN which is like $350USD. So I think I did alright.

But honestly yeah once you go k04, you'll be real happy.

gtimk6spd 05-02-2017 12:37 AM

$350 sounds like a great deal. $500-600 isn't bad either. Of course there's still the turbo price on top of it. $2,400 new from APR w/tune or used idk how much. Just started looking and the sold ones got rid of the price so I'm not sure what I'm looking at.

I think used should be around 1200 for you guys.

gtimk6spd 05-05-2017 06:46 PM

Definitely something I'll consider. Thanks for the info.
