lildawgryan A stock prelude will beat you with the setup that you have. Save your time and just bring out the vette.

Great choice of tires. I have those on my 'whip' and I love them.

OneAMRadio Alright so he has a H23 motor with H22 heads (Vtec) and a header. He said he is set on ordering a greedy exhaust too. I am planning on FS Intake and Catback, Cosworth header, Steeda short throw, Cower cams (Stage 1 if there isnt a turbo kit out yet and stage 2 if there is), H&R Cup Kit, BFGoodrich g-Force tires. Suspension and tire mods are really for launch purpose only.

OneAMRadio It's just a joke, I wouldnt because my uncle wont let his wife touch the vette. I would take it because it would make me just more egar to do more to my car.

tin_maddog So if you lose, you'll go borrow someone else's car to earn a win?

Just take a loss. Everyone has to sometime or another. That way you can go out w/ what pride you are left with.

OneAMRadio Well thanks but I wasnt really asking for if I'm going to win or not, was just saying. I dont think you guys realize the amount of issue's that it takes to get what a car would run, it seems that most people, not all, seem to think that the amount of hp you have and just what motor it is, and the weight. There are so many things involved.
I am simply saying I am going to run him and see what happens, if I lose I borrow my uncles 63 vette and spank the shit outa him! I dont wanna sound like I'm bitching you guys out but you it seems like many people see things as black and white. Vtec is over rated how many times do I say it? Well enough ranting.

Carter the h23 is non vtec and the h22 head makes it vtec...i wouldn't run him
09-15-2005 05:06 PM
fokuzx3 yea, thers an ls vtec here in town and hes puttin down 177whp 129wtq and hittin a 14.7 in this humidity and with no traction, i bleieve him too, that thing killed my ass, at my sweet spot...as for the h23's..as far as i know, they are good for about a 15.5...i raced one on track road one night and it was even stephen the whole way, nothing givin on either of us the whole way- reason i think for those is emissions i believe

BlackNRed01 someone said they dont see the point in the ls vtec swap, but i believe that the ls is the only engine that has an available individual throttle body setup.

I am deep into the 14's with the same setup.
