Default Nailed a Firebird.

On my way home from Dillon *.C.[ a 100 mile drive] in Laurenburg N.C. I came across a 99-02 V-6 Bird He'd just detailed it out, had loud exhaust [ which I think sounded like crap]. He followed me for about 20 minutes comeing into to town. At the first stop light he pulled up beside me and when the light went green he took off like a rocket. At the next light. I power braked to 2500 rpm and when it dropped to green we both nailed it. It was neck and neck until the 1-2 shift and then I steadily pulled away until I hit a 100. Smoked Him bad. Sure was fun.

Good kill! That Series 2 NA has some torque. Taught that bird a lesson. If he'* done what most do to their exhaust, he lost low-end torque by opening it up too much.

You couldn't have handed him his *** any better!

LOL...my friend Linda has a 2002 Firebird V6, basically its the exact same N/A Series II 205HP engine...or 240HP..whatever, so the Bonne should be able to give it a good go. Must have been a subpar driver in the FB as well

Nice kill I just killed a F-bird myself. 1989 or 1990. Had a 3.1, pretty sure it only had 135hp.

The same night I was at a red light waiting to do a U-turn. I was 2 cars behind a heavily modded Honda Accord WAGON! Anyway, it had the biggest muffler I'd ever seen, and also the WORST sounding one at that. This thing swung a u-turn and took off, sounding pretty much like 20 weed-wackers on high speed. He had a good 6 seconds before I was able to turn around. He was a good 70 or so feet ahead when I layed on the gas and flew by him at only 60-65. This guy was SLOOOOOOW!! I couldn't believe how slow he was.

Just got my Taylor wires too!! Can't wait to put 'em in with my new plugs. And my ADTR intake will be here this week! God is good!! I'll be back with more Kills by this weekend

Good kill Just watch out for the occasional WS6. I seem to find those when I'm in my SE quite a bit. If I can get the money; I'd love to drop the CSC in my car. Ultimate sleeper.
