Raceing

Is it even worth the time taking a v6 to a track?

Look in the world of racing anything can happen. I'll run a gt all it has to do is slip at the line the guy can't shift right and I won the race. You will beat people out there... It's not all about the 8s trust me.

Re: Raceing

Regardless of what some people may say....

Taking pretty much anything you want to a race track is worth it.... You don't have to have a super fast car. Run, try to beat your own personal best, just enjoy yourself at the track.

You will prob get laughed off the track with 4.6 emblems though.

I'm putting 3.8 emblems on mine just so people know they are losing to a 3.8. I love the surprised look on people's faces when I tell them it's only a 3.8

Re: Raceing

Beez002......I can't tell you how many ppl I've come across who when they learn on my V6 and what its capable of, just how floored and surprised they are.....most in disbelief and denial. Though, I've had more ppl than I can begin to even count, when I step up to their challenge to race and I further their challenge and suggest taking it to the drag strip.....their tone changes. Lol, crazy.....lot of **** around where I live that can't get enough of runnin' their vagina's, but when push comes to shove and ****s suggested to be taken to the track, its as if that's a game changer that they can't cash what they just ran their mouth about. ...........sad isn't it. .......and it's "only" a V6. rotfl

Re: Raceing

Supersnake....Obvious 1st then the details....01 V6 Automatic.....Built bottom end (forged crank, pistons, and conn rods), built top end ( blower ground cam, ported and polished heads, upper & lower intake, roller rockers) all the bolt ons: 56 or 65mm t/b(whichever one it is), shorty headers, h pipe, cat delete, egr delete, tuned 4R70W auto trans, 3:73 gears w/diff lock (stock 7.5" diff), gutted trunk, back seat, front and back bumper supports, 39lbs injectors, SVT focus fuel pump,.....now....the best for last.....Procharger Supercharger w/ smaller pulley(3.2") pushing 14lbs of boost.

Did the math like a s**t ton of times....should dyno at most 450 @ flywheel....at least 400, either way....should walk away with an ace with this.

Re: Raceing

Sssssssooooooo..........which supports my post a little further up. When ppl hear i have a v6, they ask to run (assuming ill p*ss out) but when i up the antee by suggesting going to a 1/4mi, .......all of sudden, they have all the typical excuses not to run. Silly how that works out.

Oh, btw.......im feeling offally rapish, anyone know of any slow-maros or c5 and earlier vettes id delighted to molest a camaro or two. Or perhaps a c5 vette.

Come to cinci Ohio man. I would show that built mustangoff like none other. People give me grief every day because I don't own a camaro or a Chevy or some other type of car and then they downplay me cause I have an auto trans and a v6. My friend even makes fun of it even though he drives a ricer 91 Toyota mr2 that makes 150 at the flywheel which is what I make to the wheels atm. People would shart bricks to see a 400+hp v6 with an auto trans
