Ok so my long time friend and I pull up next to each other on a empty back woods side street. He's in the WRX and I'm in the Cougar. He asks if I'll give the signal. So I beep three times and as I finish the last beep I realize I need my hand on the stick shift inorder to launch properly so I hesitate. Well luckily for me he had a bad launch as well. I finally get the rpms up and launch it out. He had a small jump on me (because of my hesitation) but right away I jumped up about half a car length. I ran 1st out to 6400 and slammed it into 2nd. As soon as I hit 2nd I started to walk until his front was even with my rear bumper. I took 2nd to 6500 shifted to 3rd and took another 2-4 feet on him. We shut it down towards the end of my third about 80-90mph. I won it. I was really excited.
Things you all should know. I love these boards and you have to be the most helpful group of people I know.
My Cougar is far from Stock:
MSDS Cermic Headers and Y-Pipe
Yo-Dude Dual exhaust with flowmaster muffler
Venom 400 piggy back system (not Nitrous)
Pro-Flow MAF custom calibrated
Weapon-R with Apex power intake
SVT Upper intake manifold double honed and extruded
SVT Lower intake with 19lb fuel injectors
SVT throttle body 60mm
OMP Strut tower bar
Taylor Plug wires with Bosch Platnium4 Plugs
ASP Underdrive Pulley 1lb
Derale front mount oil cooler
and other cosmetics
Although that night I was racing with 50lb 17in steel chrome rims
Anyway he hasn't yet figured out how to launch it so I figured I'd win anyway. Plus we just installed His AEM Short Ram, GFB BOV, and hi Joe P went in last night. We are still tunning it. So i figure that was my first and only win against him. Alot of times I reffer to the WRX as mine because I have put alot of time in to it and he isn't on these boards so we needed some way to get all the great info you guys provide. LOL Plus I buy all the parts for him and he pays me back.
