Peregrine Liberal amounts of Armor All.

Back to a more purposeful response, are you wanting to do this for nonsensible reasons? I say this because...

1. You don't need to heat a treaded street tire for a pass at the DRAGSTRIP. You'll only get laughed at.

2. Yes it maybe cool to chirp them from time to time, but really all you're doing is destroying your tires and potentially other drivetrain parts.

3. No one will give two flying monkeyballs about your smoke machine because they all know you're driving an SPI...

Royce01 and yes i'm talking about crank horsepower. the whp is probably like bewteen 100-110 whp.
if that I'm not entirely sure. the kid that i bought it from said it was about 125hp and i've added a magnaflow cat and an high flow air filter from spectre since.

Any fun motorsport activity is destructive to your car! Drag, Drift, Road Course, Time Attack, Rally... The only activity that isn't is Car Shows.

If you keep the wheels turned from the get-go and minimize going straight while doing it; it's only really bad to the front tires!
