^^ you just said above that it wasn't tuned, now you are saying it was tuned?

As I said, if it wasn't tuned, it would run like crap. If it was properly tuned, you wouldn't hang with him.
Went to the strip today ran 1/4-13.46, mph-127.04 in the g8 with 2.25 long tubes, no cats, intake and tune. 60'-2.067, 330-5.755, [email protected]
With my F22c with test pipe and kpro tune, I would be able to hang until before the 1/8 with these mods then he'd probably fast walk me, without the mods I got the kill
Spinning ain't winning.

Yep. Exactly what I told him

I just don't see how keeping up with a 6.0 GTO is possible-drivers being equal. I'm a good driver but in a straight line I can't pull on my friend's 2006 IS350 in my stock AP2, and as speeds climb he pulls away. Another 100hp isn't going to make things any easier for the S2K.

so proud of you for beating a high mileage, poorly running GTO. You must feel so good about it. you beat a V8!!

again I say, unless you are racing to 40mph, you aren't hanging. Period.

Yup caught him slipping for sure. He was probably granny shifting and not double clutching like he should, but winning is winning.

Caught him slipping, if that was on a drag strip I would still take it as a win. If you're a poor driver or drive a poorly maintained car, guess what, I'm pullin on your punk ass. DDAY sucka. It's called racing. V8's don't win every single day, moron. What's not to be proud of, I know I have a well maintained ride, kudos to me I guess. Hater

Would love to see that holden/g8/vette etc engine in an S2K vs a stock block turbo s2k. Anyone ever tried this? There are about 50 or so LS swapped S2Ks in USA that I know of.

Actually found this in a fb group last night.

Both about 430whp, one has an LS2 and the others got a big turbo

Pretty easy for an S to have 400whp, like a V8, but torque is where the difference lies. My 420whp SC car has only 287 and of course that is high in the curve. But those V8s can crank out 400ftlbs at 3,000 RPM. I had a ride in a V8 S. Of course when you rip the heart and soul out of a car and replace it with the devil on steroids you can't expect the car to be the same. It did not feel like an S any more. Do not get me wrong I am not saying it was not freaking awesome, but it was not to Honda-ish any more. He could be in fourth gear at 30 miles per hour and mash the gas and the rear wheels would just light up and smoke like a mother.
