Default You win some.. you loose some...

I"ve already collected 19 Civics/CRX.. 8 integras..3 Cavalier.. 3 GA GT'*...2 Mustangs.. and now I can add one more to the list of kills...

I was just cruising home from a night of looking for a races.. but nothing.. but then I saw a Civic in front of me with 4 chicks in it.. then a BMW 325i pulled up beside them and kept revving their engines like their asking for a race or something... so sure enough this went on for about 3 lights... the next light was red and it opened up to a 3 lane one way road. So I shot over to the 3rd lane.. and just stared at those punk asses in daddy'* car trying to impress the ladies in the Civic... sure enough.. they thought they were all that.. then I leaned over the front a bit more.. saw them sexy ladies... winked and waved.. then I noticed that the light had already turned green and buddy in the 325i stomped on it to take off he had half car length by then... I gradually went to WOT and up over and gone.. I blew their doors off even before I could reach 3rd gear.. they were already about 4-7 cars back..ha ha ha.. so now I can put a BMW 325i to the kill list... then I saw a real sweet purple 300ZX.. later on that night.. asked if he wanted to go for fun... "sure" he said.. went through about 4 lights waiting to catch a red and no traffic ahead of us.. by the 6 one.. we got what we wanted... needless to say.. I got my *** handed to me... I barely kept up with him. By the end of the run.. 190 kmh thru a 80 kmh zone we killed it and he was a good 6 - 7 cars ahead of me.. we pulled over at a gas station.. and we compared under the hood.. he had a lot of work done under that 300ZX twin turbo'd stage 2 with a huge *** intercooler and all.. he had the car dynoed to 394 BHP... he was shocked that my car could've kept up with him that well.. needless to say.. it was a good kill for him... I may have lost.. but it'* just more reason to start modding my car

Hanging with the 300 like you did was definitely something to talk about. I have a friend who has one, and he has pee-resistant seats in the thing. His car actually scares HIM. He'* selling it now. What have you done to your car?

Nothing major.. gutted the internals of the airbox, removed the MAF screen, and running a 3" dryer duct from under the front driver side fog lights into the airbox, will be probably changing to a 4" dryer duct. I was going to go witha CAI system, but I'm too lazy to have to remove it every season because of all the snow . At least with the dryer duct if it rains hard or snows.. all I have to do is push the duct up more to behind the bumper. 180 T stat. I am planning on changing the SC pulley, but I think I will do that after I get a Trans cooler first. ( no point modding the car if I don't think it'* going to hold up even though I have a 4t65HD tranny , better safe then sorry.. pushing the big beast home would not be an idea of fun ha ha ha ). After the SC pulley, I will do a cat-back system to support the NOS I eventually would want to dump into the Beast.. and if I still get my *** handed to me then.. then I'll just have to fake a NOS leak in my cabin and laugh all the way back :P .

Laughing all the way back? That might be funny

What year are you? We've done very similar things so far.....might be interesting to compare results. Check out my sig below.

Mine is a 97.. the main difference I can see is that mine comes with the series 2 engine with M90 */c whereas yours is the series 1 with M62 */C... Did you notice a difference when you went cat-back ?? Did you loose any torque because of lack of back pressure ?? I"m sure the top end would haul ***... what muffler did you use ??
Water injection... so that also means you can use a lower octane for normal driving too... I might be wrong though....
