    Neighbor Wants To Run

    My neighbor and a friend of mine from across the street just had a supercharger and exhaust installed on his 04 GTO and told me he wants to run my STI because he believes there is no way my little 4cyl can keep up with his big beefy V8 now that he has his supercharger and exhaust! I told him when ever he wants to run just tell me and i'll be there but at the same time I don't want to beat him because he just spent so much on his parts and install!! WHATS A MAN TO DO? What do you all think?

    If he's tuned, he'll make BIG power, but I doubt he can put it to the ground effectively unless he's got a beefed up rear/suspension and he's a good driver...

    if you know how to drive, with your mods, you could beat him from a stop, I bet.

    right now i'm sitting around 465awhp and in the low,low 11's in the 1/4(altitude sucks!) on street tires, I know his car is making some big power I just don't want to burst his bubble because he loves his car so much but at the same time he's one of those guys who thinks that nothing can touch a V8 and If by chance he looses then there must of been something wrong with his ride or he had a bad jump on the light! (ALL OF YOU 4 BANGERS KNOW WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT!!) I think I'm just gonna have to represent the Subby Nation and take one for the team!!!!

    dude **** him, you gotta do what you gotta do. only time i feel bad about stuff like that is with close friends. plus he seems like the type where if he beats you he'll run his mouth forever. just **** on him once and say his car is fast thats it.

    With your power you should smoke him. Especially off the line if it is on the street. If it is on the track and he has drag radials, it will be a driver's race. I guess it really depends on how much power that S/C is adding and how well tuned he is. Definately line them up and go for it. Good Luck

    yeah. shut his mouth. who cares if he spend gazillion $ towards his car. if he can't respect your 4 banger, no need to worry about his feelings either - I'd say smok'em

    +1 for video. show it to him afterwards, too

    If he's setup well on that blower he's probably putting 450-500whp down. Like other have said he will get no traction on the streets. From a roll it would be a better race although he wieghs 500lbs more.

    You are making quite a bit power on that setup... but so is he. The way I see it though, is that he JUST put that blower on, which means he is probably running factory spec's on the blower (meaning no smaller pulley and little add-on's to make more power). From a dig, I am pretty confident you could take him, if not walk him. He is putting down good power, but its probably right around or under where you are at, and you have the launch advantage and weigh about 500lbs less.
    From a roll would be a much more interesting race. Run from both a stop and roll and MAKE SURE YOU TAPE IT!
