This was not my kill obviously, but I saw this display on the way to work this morning and it made my day :) thought I would share it!

An 86 or so Omni GLHS pulled up to a light to the right of me (three lane road, I was in the far left). Immediately, I could tell that this ride was WELL taken care of. Esthetically perfect, and I could tell by the sound of it that things where top notch from an engine perspective as well. To the right of him, pulled up about a 90 Prelude, also appearing to be in excellent shape. The prelude reved up a couple times and stared over at the guy on the omni. The Omni guy ingored him the first time. The prelude reved again. The guy in the Omni looked over and gave him a "I would not do this" sort of look, you could tell without him saying anything :)

The other light turned yellow, and the both started reving their Engines. When our light turned green, the both dropped the clutch, and for just a split second it appeared to be a close match. That changed quickly once the omni hit second gear. The rest writes itself. The Omni was 10 or more lengths ahead in no time. I had to turn off shortly thereafter, but I wish I could have pulled up to the next light to see the look on the prelude guys face. He probably had no idea what was under the panties on the GLHS.

Nothing makes my day (almost nothing :)) like seeing arogant import drivers getting destroyed by under appreciated American compacts. I might add, I do not hate imports ( I adore mid 80's to early 90's toyota corrolas and celicas) but I hate most Honda drivers in this town)

Work is going to be great today!

I humiliated a new Mustang GT in the MX6 on Wednesday. So i guess i had the opposite experience.

Either way... LOADS of fun!

New turbo installed, full tune up done (has the right spark plugs now!).... boost is at 10psi until i get my chip and wideband installed. The car is getting scary. We're talking a potential 110mph trap. :D

It squats so hard in 2nd gear that it drags the stock muffler now. :p

Whats that shit??? How do you figure??? This kid Frankie I went to school with got the MX6 v6 shortly after we graduated and tried following me down the parkway goin down to ybor city, I pulled his ass in Traffic. (because I got the openings 1st) but he pretty much stayed with me. It was close, but I didnt "kill" him nor would he have "killed" me!! You can even look up the 0-60 times, they both do it in around 7.9, and the 1/4 around 15.8.

To me it sounds like an ego trip from an MX6 owner. :bum:

Well after more research I think I'd put up a good race with the MX6. 10psi seems to yield around 160whp or so...so I wouldn't have a problem taking it down :) My new daily I'm picking up this weekend would probably be close too :D

Ben, take it to the track and get some numbers!

I've got a 1990 MX6 GT Turbo with a few upgrades..... it ain't no 15.8 car. Try 13.8 on 10psi, that might be a bit closer.

Hahaha.... Alex, it's not 160whp. Here's the current mod list:

Supra CT-26 50trim
Supra 440cc injectors
fmic w/ 2.5" piping
Greddy Profec B
Greddy Type S bov
Tial 38mm external wg
3" exhaust straight out the side of the bumper
3" intake w/ a huge K&N filter
PLX M-300 wideband
Probinator ECU chip

10psi on this thing is far faster than the stock turbo will EVER be, and stock turbos will put out about ~230whp at 15-16psi, with a buttload of torque.

We'd probably have to race on a 3-lane highway with a lane between us. It's almost to the point of being uncontrollable.

I'm waiting for next paycheck to order my Aeromotive AFPR and Walbro 255lph pump, then i'm going to 15-17psi. Should be around 300whp/350wtq. MX6gtboi on the forums just put down 350whp/458wtq (not a typo) on a 50 trim with a similar setup, plus megasquirt. Stock motor.

Keep in mind it's a 2700lb car. ;) I'd have no problems tearing down my buddy's H22A integra that puts out a touch over 200whp n/a with much shorter gearing.

I might be taking it to the track today... depends on a couple things. But soon.

Take it to the track!

Sounds like I need to pass on the 93 S4 I'm buying this weekend and buy the 2G Probe GT with a a T3/T4 that I've been looking at :D

Yep, 93 Audi S4. Should be picking it up friday. Guy is offering me a killer deal that I can't pass up.
Probe is a Turbo V6 running 10psi with meth inj. and megasquirt. Real clean car, but I'd rather have AWD and the guy is asking more than the Audi.

4door, stick, 5 cylinder 20v turbo?

Ditch the Porsche. NOW. That Audi has WAY more potential. And i'm not kidding in the slightest. That motor in that car is flat out SCARY.

Check out this video.... it's in a WAGON.

I'm aware of the potential, I've had a few audi's :D
For the time being though the S4 will get some suspension and a chip and reamin on DD duties. 951 still makes a better track car and weighs ~1000 lbs less

Pshawwww..... whatever dude. The S4 isn't that heavy... 3700lbs. You could EASILY get that under 3000, and it's awd! :p

I'll trade you the MX6 for the S4, it's faster AND gets better gas mileage. ;)
