OMG,,,power is unusable on street tires!!!
Friend of mine came by the house last night to help me out on my 87 Fox and brought his 90 coupe that is carb'd n turbocharged. Well, needless to say I was offered a ride.
Just a heads up, this thing dyno'd at 578hp/700tq! Also, this is w/AC, but manual rack.
There's no use smacking it in first gear. Second gear as boost was barely coming on it blew the tires away. Shifted to third, slowly getting in the gas and tires go up in smoke again. 3/4 throttle into fourth gear and she's pulling like a rocket and the tires are clawing for traction. Oh, the blow off valve sound is awesome!!!
I envy you guys w/turbo's and that kind of power!!!! On the previous motor and slicks the car went 10.74's if I remember correctly and that was with all power/suspension twist going to the right rear tire. Wonder what this beast is gonna be like when the suspension issues get taken care of.
