DrkKnight614 You just have to make sure tq steer doesnt get the best of you. The mazdas are tuned to reduce the tq steer, although now that he's modded idk what kind of effect it has on this tune, or if it stays in place when you tune it. The ecu limits the amount of power in 1st and 2nd gear to reduce tq steer. This is why the ms3 has such low 0-60 times, but once you get outta 2nd gear the thing pulls and just flys.

LastRites I just watched the dyno vid, dude is nowhere near 265 crank HP, hell he's far above it with just the CAI but also running an aftermarket BOV and with no cats, he's making serious power. Looks like he lowballed on the dyno with those mods

svteric I will need it!

Rob_eaton ure making 279 wheel hp as opposed to your buddy's 265 crank hp , so hes making significantly less hp than u at the wheels. he might get u with that turbo torque but again ure car is at least 300 lbs lighter than the mazda and the svt's got longer gearing so u maximize ure gain from the supercharger... with a proper LSD, suspension, tire pressure, and a good launch u'll smoke him easy ! good luck
