They gave me a RWD G35 Sport, as a loaner car.

That poor, poor car. It barely has any tread left.

Yes, I'm sure the luxurious Mustang, Evo and WRX have Infiniti quaking in its boots. If you're shopping these cars head to head maybe it's time to think about asking yourself what you want most from your vehicle.

Fixed it for you. They're mid-low 14 second cars at best.



They come w/ around 300 hp / 300 lb/ft tq right? That'd take care of quite a few turbo 4 bangers. Unless it was a built turbo 4 banger.


I saw a new G-35 coupe at the drag strip on the coast last weekend. He had some kinda shitty sounding exhaust on it But anyway, the best run I saw was like a 14.30. They're basically a 350Z, but more luxurious and a bit heavier. There are plenty of turbo 4 cylinders that would wax its ass, stock. SRT-4, STi, and Evo come to mind. And of course a new GT or a Z28/SS would be a joke. Considering all cars are stock, of course.



Meh...give it to me and I'll get it in the 13's. Then again...I've driven a car or two down the straights. Many times you can't judge a car like that at the strip unless you know the driver. Lotta guys just take one out to see what it'll run having never worked a tree or slammed through the gears, or launched on a strip.


Excellent point, but we are talking about someone with average driving abitlity

I think the 350Z is fuggo, but I think the G35 coupe is dead sexy. In fact, it's probably my favorite Japanese car to sell on our shores.

One of our customers took his G35 down to Kansas and ran it last year. He had a 13.5 second time slip he was showing off, and IIRC he had a poor 60 foot and a wicked fast trap speed for a 13.5 run. His only mods were a cold air intake and an exhaust system.

...I would hardly call the Cobra a turd...while it's base is still a Mustang it handles ungodly amounts of power and came out of the factory at a proven 430 hp or so. The block can handle 600 safely for the most part and the cars are stupid fast for the price.

Ford was smart. Chevy was also smart for doing away w/ their mullet bait.

What are your thoughts on the Ford GT? It's a turd too I suppose.

So what do you drive? The average '03/'04 today will take care of most cars out there. No bias in that statement but a known fact.

But hey we're getting back to internet racing now.

If there is one thing I learned about racing...there is always someone faster than you.

My Srt4 is as stock as they come..... The fuel system is good for 18psi if you have an adjustable wastegate to control the boost. The 2004/2005 uses stage 1 fuel injectors. You guys better get to studying

And what are you driving again? I must have missed that...

ETA: Okay, I see your edit. I figured SRT-4. 2.4 turbo, 16 psi stock is easy to accomplish. I have a few friends with those. Fun cars! One of my buddies had an '04. He had to get rid of it, now he has an '03 Cobra. That car is a blast!

True, but 250hp in a 3k lb car is nothing to sneeze at. Too bad they dont hook for shit. There are plenty of 500 hp SRT-4s running around that can't go any quicker than 11's. There were a FEW breaking the 10's last time I checked (been a few months) but I dont really keep up with it anymore. Traction owns SRT-4s.

Edit: Now that I read his post, ~2900 lbs. ~250whp is probably about what he's pushing now. Factory rating is around 225 i believe, and they have been known to be under rated. I'm surious to know if he keeps that 16psi through the rpm range or if it just spikes at that. Stock they hold at around 14-14.5 psi.

I am a "car person" Actually, if it has an engine and moves under it's own power, I'm all about it whether it be aircraft, watercraft, recreational or otherwise. Just because I'm not your kind of car person doesn't mean I ain't a car guy. I'm both a car guy and a gun guy.

Not an insult but most guys in GD dont know a damn thing about turbo'ed cars. Sure you can throw a big ol bored over v8 in a classic and kick ass but in order to do that you have to have a shit ton of money and/or the tools and the know how to do it right. You best believe if i had the $ i would be cruising in a blacked out mustang.

That's not entirely accurate...for ~10k you could have one helluva fun ride if you know how to use tools and can read. I know you didn't get your SRT-4 for 10k, and I'm sure you'll sink a lot more into it before you're finished

And in my first built turbo 4 banger statement I almost put the SRT4 in there as a stock example....damn you shawn. What kinda numbers you seeing? 375-400 HP?

And if you're gonna insult us w/ the "get to studying" comment....last time I studied a Neon it looked like a skittle and sounded like a pissed of bunch of bees contained in a coffee can.

They're quick cars I'll give'm that.

Trust me I do know lots about cars....

Hell ask Hemi what we were IM'ing each other back and forth about.

I'm throwing a T-70 .96 into a '69 Mustang.....and also throwing on an A/A IC unit. Not many of those around. All through a blow through carb....



but but but you can't run street driven turbos through carbs...but but they're harder to tune...but but....


Not an insult but most guys in GD dont know a damn thing about turbo'ed cars. Sure you can throw a big ol bored over v8 in a classic and kick ass but in order to do that you have to have a shit ton of money and/or the tools and the know how.




You are not a unique and beautiful snowflake.

That's not entirely accurate...for ~10k you could have one helluva fun ride if you know how to use tools and can read. I know you didn't get your SRT-4 for 10k, and I'm sure you'll sink a lot more into it before you're finished


Maybe if i had 10k in cash i could have done that. Im still paying monthly payments

You best believe if i had the $ i would be cruising in a blacked out mustang.


Pure

There is NOTHING impressive about a bolt-on princess. Any asshole can put in 16 turbo chargers with F4 Phantom impellers and be fast.

It takes skill to naturally aspirate 850 hp, and I've successfully been able to do it in a Mopar 340 block.

We had a guy up here who, back in the late 90's would rent Dodge Neon's from Enterprise for the $19.99 weekend deal and auto cross them. He did have a set of steel wheels with slicks mounted on them and drove the manual like an auto (actually kept it in 1st gear most of the course).

'71 Maverick? $300. Nasty smallblock Dodge 408 built in my spare time with parts on sale? $1600. TF727 from junkyard? $50. Full manual valvebody? $120 used. 9" rear with 4-series gears? $250. Soon...an OD unit.

I've got about $2500 total into the little beast. It looks like hell...but runs like a raped ape. MUCH cheaper and faster than any ricegrinder I've come across.

And it is just a toy, not a real drag car. THAT lives in the barn.

I've partaken in a 514 block running 4.20's in the 1/8th NA'd

It's just a matter how deep your pocket goes. Granted a lot to be said for knowledge but in the end...money is what buys the best parts.

BTW Subnet...since you're now part of this bench racing thread....I think we need to get an ARFCOM Nationals event setup. Bring out all the cars for show or speed. Whatever fits your fancy.

I find it interesting that people here who have no qualms about beating the crap out of other people's property (but it's ok because it's a LOANER ) are probably the same morons who bleat - never buy a new car! Always buy used!

It's people like you that make me confident that buying new and driving 100-200k is the best way to go.

By the way, once you rent that DVD from Blockbuster, go ahead and scratch it up for the next guy, since you've already seen it.

sheesh.
