Racing for money is pretty lame as neither one of you have anything close to a drag car.

SVTF is really slow in a straight line but awesome in the twisties. I am boosting mine and really upgrading the suspension but I still won't drag the car when I am done, it is not set up for it. Kind of like putting the 1 mile racer in the 100 m dash.

opinions are like ass1holes....


and i have a totally built suspension and I still drag my car. I could care less of your opinion tho.


and ZX3, I am so debating a nitrous bottle now. way cheaper than a boost kit, and I can use it when I need the power on tap

There is a local guy here who has a GTP with just headers and a cold-air unit, and pulls 13.7's all day. Monsters in a straight line, but if the road turns, it's in a ditch...

Have fun... race for money and let us know the outcome.

You will not be happy with nitrous. You can hit 250 whp on a conservative tune with a Procharger or turbo no problem. I doubt you will throw a 100 shot on your engine...

Save up and boost it correctly.

If your only goal is to beat a GTP, go ahead. I am just saying the you will not be happy with Nitrous compared to a mild turbo or supercharger. I have seen it happen often.

I am not a big fan of nitrous. Boost is much more fun, always on tap, AND safer.

My friend had a 1994 Grand Prix GTP; no supercharger. BUT I dont think the supercharger was intoduced to the engine until 1998.

Those things are beasts man.
