just thought i share a couple fun stories....this past weekend my girl friend and i went up too visit friends in jacksonville FL...sat night they have an illegal get together for drags...so i went to play..
every one meets up in a parking lot and goes to play on the highway from there...
1st race...a supercharged saleen mustang<early 90s style trunk> comes through where were parked and starts reving his engine and acting all V8ish....you could hear a healthy blower on the car....so my buddy walks up to him and says "hey.....wanna race the lexus?.." this was met with a laugh from the mustang owner..then a .."yeah sure..lets go" so i jump in the lex and follow him to the highway...we pull 2nd gear and he jumps on the gas 1st and gets about a car lead on me....run through 2nd...into 3rd im door to door with him..pull 4th and drive by him putting 2 car lengths on him...shift to 5th to pull some more but theres traffic ahead so we slow.....i get next to him and my buddy says..."what happened?"...and he says his fuel pressure isnt right.....my buddy laughs and says your gonna need more then fuel pressure to beat this car...lol..
So we go back to the hang out and tell everyone what happened.....then a nice Firebird WS6 pulls up...this car had beaten my buddys supra a few weeks earlier so we knew what he had....intake...headers...exahust...stall converter...drag radials...and a 175 shot of NOS....confirmed by the shop that installed it..they ask the WS6..."wanna race the lexus....."..agian greeted with a chuckle......ok lets go...he says....but then the supercharged mustang i spanked shows back up....so i tell the guy in the WS6...i just beat that stag....race him and see what ya do...so they go and race right on the stereet in front of us and the WS6 whips the mustang too...so he comes back and wants to race the lexus....so we rolled to the highway with a crowd of cars following to watch the race...we slow to a 1st gear 10mph roll...we hit it at the same time...and he noses me in 1st gear...pull 2nd were side by side.....3rd i get half a car.....4th get a car or so...then we back off and head back to the lot.....WS6 owner gives me the what the @#%$ face and shakes my hand saying....your too much for me...whats in there...so i tell him just a turbo...and smile.....

i think i need to goto jacksonville more often...good races up there...and by the way..i got the WS6 kill on video...just need to figure out how to post it here...

How much did the turbo cost? I was thinking about putting a NOS system in from Nitrous Works so I want to know some options.

Ummmmm...street racing...great. What a joke. Maybe you'd impress people with ET's...but "I pulled him by two cars through 4th grear" and stuff of that nature only impresses high school kids and people who've never seen a drag strip.

I'll dump my Mustang for an IS...if and when they EVER make an IS coupe!

Someone sounds like they don't like street racing, what are you scared of the REAL thing, anyone can race on a track but it takes skill and precision and a lot of luck to race on the streets, w/ or w/o traffic. so if you don't like...

well just suck it...
