Well I was on my way to my girlfriends house when I saw this red srt4. He was zipping through traffic, I think mainly because he herd my bov. I recognized him from wednesday night. They usually have weekly meets at a sports authority parking lot. But anywas I pulled up next to him at a light. I asked him if he had any mods done to it. He said no....

So the light turns green, even though we never really agreed to race, we both kinda knew we were going to run it. :bigthumbu Anyways I immediately jump ahead of him. I'm shifting at about 6k here. He gets behind me and I keep pulling on him. In the end before I shut it down I had about 2 to 3 car lengths on him. I was only on about 9psi being that i still haven't gotten my boost controller. This is my first real race, only reason that I did it was b/c I had installed my egt and I just wanted to be sure everything was running safe.

After the race, I was a bit shaken by the experience, what a rush! In the end I don't think I will continue to race the car, I am convinced that it is fast at 9 psi. I can only imagine for now how fast this car will be at 15psi. I know say what you want, street racing is stupid yadi yadi yada....

About the street racing thing.. meh, whatever. As long as it's not harming anybody, I see no problem. Nice kill man, keep up the good work :)

I don't understand how a street race is justification for checking an EGT gauge out...

Only thing I can say is, too bad it wasn't one of those super-arrogant kids with SRT-4's that seem so common around here.

Like I said the street racing is stupid. I just wanted to see where my car stood. Anyways I'll give my self one of these. :slap: I just mentioned that I put on my egt to let everyone know that I'm cautious with my car. I don't usually boost at every light. Yeah mike theres alot of those arrogant srt4 owners around. Anyways you should probably just come out on weds night to brandon. SHould be worth the drive. :D

Yeah man I need to make some contacts in Brandon anyhow. I wouldn't mind coming out one night but I'll be in my sister's Tiburon since the Celica is down for maintenance (bad steering pump, new pump is on order) right now.

Youre engine must be very strong to do that to an SRT4 at 9psi... I wish mine was. I think my exhaust is restrictive.

Damn!!! I wish that I could do that to SRT4's because TO TO many of them are arrogant around here. my cat is clogged though so I'm only running 6psi in 3-5 and 3-4psi in 1&2. It sucks... oh well. I beat 1.8t's stock.

Did you disable the turbo vsv? Added a mbc?
