    Me with little turbo at wastegate boost versus M3 on the highway

    Well, my 20g is off getting Superzilla'd so I have a loaner turbo on my car right now (vf30). Well, I have a friend with a E36 M3 in great condition with a Dinan chip, Dinan exhaust, intake, and short throw. I decided that I wanted to see if I was faster than him at wastegate boost(7psi creeping to 14 at revlimit). So, we line up on the highway at 50mph and pull to the top of the gear(93 or so) and I pulled out on him by about 2 and a half or so cars. We did it twice with the same results. My car feels SOOOOOOO SLOOOOWW right now since the VF30 is at wastegate boost versus my 20g at 20lbs of boost. I didn't think I would pull him at all. Ahh well it was fun though. Can't wait until the SZ gets back so I can go pick on some LS1's and maybe even a Cobra or two or three. 20- 22psi with a SZ here I come.
