where u from? Sounds like a friend of mineOriginally posted by boosted 4
Okay, here's the deal. I was at home today waiting for the HVAC technician's arrival. After he got here, we talked a little about the outside central A/C unit and that's when he asked me "so, is that your little blue car in the driveway?". I said yes and he was like "so are those gauges just for show?". I told him no, why would I have gauges "just for show"? He then said, "oh well people ask me if mine are just for show but I've got a SC'r bla bla bla". I then asked him what he had and he replied a 1996 Mustang GT with a centrifugal SC, water injection (instead of an IC), exhaust, fluidyne radiator, etc, etc.
Afterwards, I asked him if he'd be up to run it for fun. He said, "I usually don't give Imports a chance, not that yours is that slow but mine is a SC'd Mustang". I was like "well, I've run some fast cars and have only been beat by maybe two cars, would you still be willing to give it a shot just for fun?". He was like "sure, but I'm putting down 440rwhp". I told him he'd surely take me but I've run against a 360rwhp Camaro SS and we were dead even until I shifted to 4th, so his Mustang should kill me from a roll.
What do you guys think? I think that IF he's truly putting down 440WHP he'll hand me my ass. I'll also see if we can get it on video regardless. That way you can see what a 280+whp WRX looks like compared to a 440whp Mustang.
This may not happen for a week or two. He said that he's got to replace his heater core.
