    Got killed from a rol

    Ran a Stang last night, I knew the driver, also knew from a roll I would be toast. Pretty fun hearing a flat 4 and a v-8 both with BOV's. Yes I said both with blow off valves. Pretty fast car, and that was on minimal boost. We ran from 2nd, up to 4th, up until 4th I lost 3 2-3 cars...about. but in 4th, he started pulling even harder. We both shutdown right away, no point in going further. Even from a dead stop, I woulda pulled for a little past 60' then he woulda come up real fast..... That is going to be one nasty Stang by next Tuesday.

    nice death was it a 5.0? those are mean cars w/ turbos, sux going against a car w/ twice the displacement AND boost doesnt it? hes probly only running like 5psi if you kept up that good. its gotta be a ***** launching that thing, hopefully hes got some fat dr's.

    Cool site. I see that he has done a bunch of air cooled Turbo VW's. I still own a 1776cc air cooled VW motor with a BUNCH of mods, and was looking into a turbo system for it. I may contact him for more information in the future.

    I had one of those! 1776cc's, dual Weber 40IDF's, Engle 110 cam, 041 heads. I had fun building the motor for it; learned a lot...

    My motor is a 1776cc balanced and blueprinted by Small Car Specialties in So Cal. I have 40mm Dellorto DRLA's, Engle 110 cam, ported and polished 041 heads, etc. The motor has been sitting for the last 10 years. I want to build a Porsche Speedster replica or a Manx type buggy out of it.

    Boosted stangs can be made sick-fast. I know b/c I have one. To give you an idea, my GT's MPH at half track is higher than my WRX's 1/4 mile MPH (96 MPH vs. 95).
