    Exclamation Keep getting my ass kicked by this Buick

    My car is fast 300 hp...great tune... But I keep getting my ass kicked bad by this stinking old black buick with turbo. Through the grape vine somebody told me it was running methonal and big boost, any suggestions on what I might need to reel him in??? Damn that car fast!

    Exclamation What is it going to take to beat this guy? Damnit!

    Well long story short... I got a vf34 STI and I'm tired of getting raped by this Turbo Buick. I have 300 horses and it's a joke when he leaves me sitting like I'm having a pic nic! I heard he was running 28 pounds of boost and methonal.
    What's it gonna take to beat this!

    Built motor, fuel system, Ultimate Racing twinscroll kit, GTX35r (or larger, depending on what's done to the Grand National), supporting mods, six speed swap, rear diff swap, DSS axles and srive shaft.. run e85 or meth. Probably would be good to lighten the car by about 300-500lbs. too.

    Fully built motor and large turbo like a 35R or 40R and all the supporting mods. I'm no tuner or engine builder, but I can tell you it will likely be a lot of work and expensive. Nevertheless it would be a sweet project. What are his quarter mile times? You'd want to look at upgrading suspension and tires as well. Gearbox too, depending on what you already have.

    From what I've seen ...he is deep in the 10 sec quarter mile and traps about 135...one guy said he seen the car do 9's. His car sounded like a damn jet spooling up!

    It really just depends on what's done to the Buick, and how fast it actually is. Beating it in a bugeye could be impossible.. or it could cost $60k-$90k... or a build like mine could do it. A lot of variables here.

    True, but stock to stock, the Buick wins. I imagine it takes to bolt ons much better than out subies.

    I already explained what will be needed here Keep getting my ass kicked by this Buick. And by the way, cross posting is against the rules.


    If he's running low 10s/high 9s my recommendation will get you there. I don't know how specific you want as far as mods and what needs to be done to your car.. I am willing to indulge you to a point, but I'm not going to write 30 pages on how to take a WRX into the 9s.
