There's a kid in my town with an 04 srt 4 that has catback exhaust. My car is a 2000 ws6 with headers off road y pipe, slp loudmouth and a lid that has had a custom tune done. The kid with the srt 4 wants to get a boost controller before he races me. I am assuming he will turn the boost up to around 21-22 psi. If we both have passengers and have similar driving abilities, do I have anything to worry about?

What kind of race? Dig,Roll. Are you a auto or M6. I wouldnt worry about it.

We will do a dig run and probably a 30 roll. And my car is an M6

Well from a dig you should kill him imo. From a roll mite be closer if he is boosting 20+ pounds and actually is tuned and can drive it can be close. I still wouldnt worry too much.

Alright I was just curious because this might be the first race I try to race for some cash. Still a little undecided on that though. Thanks for the info!

Its usually a driver's race between the local SRT4 guys (who are fairly modded) and my mild bolt on LT1...an LS1 car with exhaust should have no problems taking one out...

well the kid claims his car hooks up well and that "it shines on the top end" so I'm not sure how to take it

It wont hook up from a dig if he launchs like he means it. Probly does well on the top end. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BoYSSaKRiCA both guys are my buddys the formula is just a bolt on car with weight reduction at that time. The srt4 is fully built with a big turbo and you can see he starts to pull up top but the 1/4 was over. the srt 4 was crazy from like a useless 60 mph roll and still spun.

so from a dig I should be good. And from like a 35-120 roll I should get a decent jump on him too?

I wouldn't worry about it. When all my car had was a lid and corsa catback, I beat an SRT-4 pretty bad. I believe he was stock though.

It all depends I had a stage 2 that would keep up with a cam ls1 all day but it was 23 lbs bfmic custom tune bigger injectors everything, plus if he only has stg 1 injectors he can't boost much past 18 without goin slightly lean unless he is tuned for it, my 2cents only way it's close if it's a sleeper with full bolt ons and hes a he'll of a driver don't mess up and you'll walk him

yeah it isn't full bolt ons yet. Just a catback exhaust. He is going to get an up/down pipe and header in the next couple months. But for now it's just gonna be catback with a boost controller. my buddy with a full exhaust and 3.42 rear lt1 auto lost to the srt 4 by 2 cars from a 45 roll. But my friends lt1 also only ran a 15.1..... soo i think I should be alright. Plus from a roll I don't know if he will brake boost it or not.

Any turbo car will shine on the top end, your car shines through the whole powerband, however lol

Yeah it all just depends on the driver, with my set up and 235/60/15 g-force drag radials and a stock clutch I pulled an 8.49 1/8 with a crappy 2.02 60 time nukes em thru second

wow man you really left him hard and with that 125 you woulda been around 400 bhp. And I think my car is in the 370-380 range. I'm feeling more comfortable about this race now
