My guess is you would lose, and its a definate if he gets the rockers in before hand

I'm not putting your car down in ANY way, it definately has a history of being fast, just letting you know what to reasonably expect. If you line up with im in the next day or so he may not be used to the extra power and he may just sit and spin

Lucky bastard.... :P

Someday I'll make the 20 min commute to INTENSE for some performance parts. Although it won't be a screamer but it'll be hella lot better.
Wonder if a shift kit and rockers plus all supporting mods (180 tstat, hi-flow cat, PCM etc)
would make Big Bertha faster and how much faster, hmm, I'll have to wait until spring to find out.

4th gear is still out but the car continues to run strong. I use it mainly for work and short hops around town. I'll rebuild it when I get some more funds built up.

There are a few twin strips of tires on the road. Some intentional some not.

And I was just mainly concerned with getting home at a decent hour, a soft mattress was calling. I left INTENSE at 2pm and got back at 2am.
