280 i think is a high torque number especially with the 3 inch exhaust.. thats just asking for torque drop.

That'* just speculation, so far, as he'* the only one with 3" exhaust. Frankly I bet he'* fine with the air that'* moving, and the design of the system. I've driven Gordy'* car, i've left double strips from a stop sign starting out around 50% throttle....

Bigger Diameter != torque loss. Power loss is only achieved when flow drops.

yay what do I win?????

It takes a 95 SSEi owner to know one hehehe

BTW my 185 was on my Gtech not a real dyno, but it looks like those little buggers are pretty accurate after all.....now I wonder what mine will put down with the rockers?? Hmmmmm

Too bad you didnt get any torque numbers by the amount of 14 second SER1s I would say they HAVE to have alot more tq because with only 190 or so to the wheels that shouldnt put a 3600 lb car in the 14s
