I need some input on this, it sounds really awkward to me:
"My buddy is in a mechanic's program at a tech school.
He has a lot of import guys in class (mostly poorboy racing).
Some of the cars that are not in that category: WRX,Supra TT,2.5RS,and S2000.
They run these cars together after a lot of talk. This hatch (EG) went up against a WRX with a front mount (you dont have to say it,we told him)with a MBC. The hatch has an LS/VTEC. They raced,the hatch won.
Supra TT (dont know the mods yet) vs the hatch. Hatch won again.
Then they dyno. The LS/VTEC ran 177 at the wheels all motor,then with a 70 shot ran 23XHp at the wheels.
Then another guy with a B16 in an EG ran his hatch on the rollers. B16 with a GSR head (motor has 8.X to 1 compression-was a turbo motor before this guy got it)all motor ran 141hp and 94 tq. Hitting it with a 100 shot
;direct port yielded 252hp and 211 ft/lbs.
Sorry about the details,but Im getting this as it happens,piecing it together from emails from my friend in the class.
I hope to have some 1/4 times. The school is renting a lane for the day at a strip soon,I hope these guys will run. "
OK, 8:1 compression on a 1.6L engine? What do you guys think?
