So this weekend I go to a local car show with about 15 cars in it and some dude with a very clean nova and I start talking. He tells me that it has a 350 with LT's,600cfm carb, and a cam. I humbly ask how much he makes to the rear wheel and he says 475rwhp. In my mind I was like damn!! So he ask me what I'm driving and I point at my 98't/a. This ******** tells me that I should sell that thing and get a real muscle car. That fuel injection is for kids and real men drive carbbed cars. I politely tell him in front of his wife that walked up if he wanted to get embarrassed in front of his friends. He's like let's go kid.
Race 1: his girl runs out to the street in front of the car show and does the Pinks all out thing. When she dropped her hands I took off with a bit of controlled spin and put a train on this guy. When we got back he said that he missed a gear. In a auto 4speed. Lmao!
Race2: we went from a roll at about 20mph and I spun a bit but this time I put a train and a bus on him. When we got back he told everyone I had nitrious and that's why I beat him. I raised my hood and let his buddies come checkout my intake and full exhaust set up. But the best part was when I told this guy he was a liar and that all I had was 308/331 rwhp/rwtq. I told him that he got ripped off if his builder said his car had 475rwhp.
I was abou to call BS untill i got to the end of your post lol. How do you know he had an A4? With a SB nova with an A4 and 475rwhp it would be pretty damn tough on the street. Obviously it wasnt. IF those mods were all that was done he is right @310 ish most likley.

What did he say after you told him he got ripped off and your horsepower?
That's when he started saying that his car needs to be tuned up and that at the end my car was a pos...I had my 5yr old with me and he really started to curse so I just walked away. No I didn't have my daughter in the car when I raced.
it takes alot of good parts to get 475 rwhp out of a 350. it takes alot more than a cam on what is probably stock heads. i've seen so many people who think they have a 450 hp 350 when in reality they are lucky to have 300 at the crank.
475 rwhp would take at least 215 cc heads and alot of compression, and alot of rpm.
That's awesome man, these freaking old farts don't respect new muscle till they get an *** woppin like that! A well built 350 with decent heads will only make 400 at the crank LOL, you definitely need some compression and solid cam to make anything near what a mild ls motor will make.
