get the shortest ,widest tire you can get (22" to 24" tall). like
a mickey thompson 22X8.0-15 slick,also a 50 or 75hp NOS
system. short tires get you out of the gate and the NOS
takes care of the big end.

ROD
ps. use the NOS in 2nd and 3rd gear only.

I'll just assume you meant GT.
Yes. Fixed now.

As Rogue said, we are not stupid...in fact seeing he works for INTENSE, one of the largest GP aftermarket companies there is, I think it would probably be a good idea to listen to him, because you can be sure he knows his ****. Without a blower it isn't easy. Forced induction makes a huge difference, remember 15psi should, assuming perfect efficiency, give you a 100% power gain since atmospheric pressure is 14.7psi. So boost helps a lot, because even with only 7.5psi you still get a 50% power gain (which you actually wouldn't gain because you won't have perfect effeciency, you won't even be close at all with a roots blower), which is extremely difficult to do to an engine N/A.

Without proof no one really knows what a n/a bonnie (esp the lightest) will do. period.

dunno about bonnies, but i raced a turbo civic(sohc @7-8 psi) that give him about the same horsepower as me(on my honda) somewhere between 170-180 hp,

and i can tell you, on the first half of the quarter i get my *** spanked, but at higher speed it seem pretty close, but, he get [email protected](i got 96 mph),


but... on a very hot day, the N/A will probably get the advantage IMO for the same horsepower.


anyway, u cannot really compared an NA with a forced induction car.
its like comparing v6 against v8 or a 4 banger
