    My WRX vs Neon R/T Turbo MOVIE...and clips...

    WRX VS NEON R/T Turbo

    Cool little video that some guys in my area put together. The race I speak of is the last clip of the movie.

    My friend in a Red MR2 Turbo lost to the Neon earlier in the movie...so I thought I would get revenge for him....he he he

    The Neon had a large 16g (or bigger), front mount, injectors and all the other electro gizmos to make it all work. He also had all the connections for nitrous, but said that he had no bottle and that the nitrous stuff was just for show.

    Anyway, take a look and let me know what you think....he he he.......

    Autometer Sport Comp Oil Pressure Gauge
    Autometer Sport Comp EGT Gauge
    Autometer Sport Comp A/F Gauge
    Hardwired Bel 980 Radar Detector
    Blitz Full Auto Turbo Timer
    Eddie Baurer Blue "Racing" Child Seat w/cupholder
    Custom Aluminum Deadpedal

    AWD Brake Light

    Factory STi Short Shift Linkage, Spoiler and Alarm.

    and now the "important" go fast stuff:

    Blitz SBC i-D Boost Controller
    Unichip Piggy Back ECU
    Vishnu Performance uppipe
    Vishnu Underdrive Crank Pulley
    NGK Colder Spark Plugs
    K&N Panel Filter
    Resonator Transectomy
    Redline Gear Oil
    Castrol Syntec Engine Oil

    I have not ran the car at the track (for obvious reasons- out of season) since the Vishnu Stage 0 install, but before I was running low 13.7s....so hopefully I will muster a 13.4 or better!!

    According to the good ol' g-tech, I have run consistant 13.3 1/4 miles.....but I never really did the 1/4 before on it, sooo I am looking at the 0-60 as a better indicator.

    Before Stage 0 I was running 0-60 in the low 5s, like 5.1-5.3....

    Now I am running between 4.5-4.8 seconds.

    The best was actually 4.54 seconds.

    But yeah, I did kinda squash him....I talked to him shortly after the race and he was like "damn awd!" with a smile. But watching the video, I think I can honestly say it would have not mattered!! Given AWD, FWD, RWD....with everything else the same, it would have still been ugly.

    how good is the reliability of your autometer gauges? i'm looking into almost the same gauges you have, but i've heard from others that autometer's quality is shown by its low price. is it true?

    I meant uppipe! Sorry........I have actually had the Vishnu Downpipe on my mind recently, as it is suppose to be released very soon....

    Not to mention my cousin has a 97 TSi AWD Talon and I habg out alot with people in the DSM performance scene...those guys have never heard of an up-pipe....so I usually refer to it as a downpipe, I get tired of explaining it to everyone. It usually goes like this:

    Them: What you got done?

    Me: Blah, Blah, Blah and a performance uppipe that removes one of my cats.

    Them: Dont you mean downpipe?

    Me: No, my car has that, too.

    Them: Insert dumb ass look on face here and thoughts: this guy does not know what hes talking about.

    Me: Thoughts: this guy doesn't think I know what I am talking about....I guess Ill have to explain it to him......

    Anyway, then I go on to say that the engine is flat....and the exhaust manifold (header) stretches across the bottom of the engine to join all 4 cylinders.....then it connects to a pipe that connects the manifold to the turbo.....this is the uppipe, then I go on to explain the downpipe.....and finally I get a look of understanding........and I think: ah...hes got it!

    Anyway....sorry again.....I meant UP-PIPE......

    Oh yeah...Autometer.....

    Well, they seem accurate. The readings your are suppose to see, you see.

    The only real proof of their accuracy I can lend is this:

    I asked a bunch of I-clubbers what their different means of reading boost were, and the readings that they were getting when at idle and while engine braking with those gauges.

    Well out of the 17 people who responded this was the results:

    inHg inHg
    Name Device Neutral Idle Vac. Engine Braking Vac.
    Keven Autometer -18.00 -
    Bamboo Autometer -19.00 -
    jimb Autometer -18.00 -22.00
    bliz Autometer -15.00 -20.00
    zsurfrin Autometer -15.00 -20.00
    99venom Autometer -19.00 -
    WRXP.. Blitz DTT -18.10 -
    300ZX6R NA -18.00 -20.00
    dug-e-fresh SBC i-D -17.00 -22.00
    jamz SBC i-D -18.00 -22.00
    linus011 SBC i-D -17.00 -
    Bogey Stock -14.00 -17.70
    FreeBMW Stock -19.00 -
    baraka VDO -18.00 -20.00
    Bad Dogg VDO -19.00 -
    andywrx Defi -15.75 -17.32
    tmat3 Apexi SAFC -25.00 -28.00

    Autometer was pretty darn good. My SBC i-D while on a Dynopack 4 wheel dyno was reading the exact same thing as the computer....so I am very confident with its readings.....and the Autometers seem pretty close....granted altitude will change readings somewhat, and I am not sure where these guys are from and all.......take it for what its worth....and also this was only for one Autometers boost gauge.......

    Also as a side note.....1 inHg = 0.49psi.

    I cant get the chart to perserve excel spacing.....sorry....I even tries to space it myself......

    dug,

    I don't see a Neon vs. WRX race in that video. I downloaded it and watched it several times, but it isn't there. Does it end with the camera passing some fire trucks? Maybe I didn't get it all.
