    u'll smoke him.

    I have a 4EAT with a switchable boost controller. (mbc set to 14.5psi)
    I had a run in with a 330xi the other day, both stopped at a stop light. He took a slight lead early in 1st due to our lack of torque(i.e. lag) down low, but once the boost started to build, it was over. (raced up to 65~70mph)
    All of this was done without the mbc.(had the switch on the stock bc)
    I must add that the bmw appeared to be an auto as well.

    If you want to make sure you beat him, just do a brake torque off the line, that'll guarantee a win.

    gluck and be careful out there.

    let us know how it goes

    You should beat him, he has less den 200 HP, and weighs more or da same as you, get a MBC for added assurance.


    From a dead Stop? Break Torque
