If I had FI...what could I beat???

Alright i love my little SVT even though it dosnt exactly scare much more than mildly modified hondas and hillbillies in rickety old trucks that for some reason think it would be a good idea to try and "race" a little black car at a stop light!

I have wanted FI for a really long time (well ive also wanted an 04 orange terminator hard top too but ive come to find out a lot of the things I want I dont get!) I have always liked the idea of the procharger with its simplicity but know turbos are where the torque is! Just out of curiosity (still a couple years left at the university so nothing will happen for a little wihle) what would an SVT on street tires be capable of in the 1/4 or on the street against other cars? From what I have seen an svt with procharger and 10ish pounds of boost can manage 260ish hp with 210 or so torque, where as that same 10ish psi on a turbo would net 270+ hp and 250 or so torque.

For those of you with any sort of FI...what times have you run at the track? If you havnt run at the track what have you taken down or at least kept close to even with that is somewhat exciting? (sti's. evo's. mustang gt's/machs/cobras?? gto's camaros etc etc etc)

I guess there is no real point to this post other than to see what is possible for when i DO finally go FI! :)

if you go forced induction you will not regret it no matter what. but as far as a 1/4 there arent a lot of people with a good svt build that race in a 1/4. they are all more of track racing. and for a good reason the focus is much better at that. but i asked the same question as you before i went FI with hardly any response.

i dont have an svt but i am making 219whp and 213wtq so here is what i have done. 1/8 mile 8's... mustang gt- it depends on the year.. run with the new one beat the old ones. evo's can be beaten from a roll. sti's havent gotten a chances to race one. 350z are a cool car to race because my car is faster and they are so cocky. and i raced a new zo6 and got my ass handed to me. threw 2nd and 3rd gear and he had 5 car lengths on me.

tom has an svt with stock internals and he ran a 12.9 in the 1/4. but he is running ~335whp not 250.

I dont believe you will find too much that will beat a new Vette. Even the 03-04 Cobra's with KB's wont take em. Lightweight cars are fun and all, but you just can touch torque.

Isnt he talking about the Z06 Corvette??? He lost to a Z06 and I was saying there was no shame in losing to that car because not much will beat a Z06.

^^^^ Yeah, but my bad english is telling me that :
"and i raced a new zo6 and got my ass handed to me. threw 2nd and 3rd gear and he had 5 car lengths on me"

means he lost a BIG time (> 5 cars length).....

good thread...I wanna see what people have taken down with their boosted cars too.....

...even though half the people on here won't say it.....

the new Z06 runs 11.7 in the 1/4.........same time as my dad's mach1, and he's boosted pretty good.....mot many stock cars can touch 'em......and a KB Terminator will give 'em a run real nicely.......

yeah i love the new zo6's. beautiful car, very impressive. deserves a lot of respect. the one that i raced was brand new. the guy that was driving it looked to be about 20-25 and the car didnt even have tags yet. lucky bastard, it was probably bought for him by his dad, lol.

any yep you could definitely beat a focus that wasnt FI, lol
