    I've been told i'd need at least DR's to accomplish this, i've also been contemplating a switch to e85, which would allow me to run more timing and more boost (past 30psi that is). I should at least be able to hit low 11's with the current setup and then I can determine what i'd need to hit the top of 10s.

    30psi should put me at around 500-550awhp. A friend has a 2.0l stock head/block making around that with the same sized turbo at around the same boost, so the displacement advantage should put me at about the same hopefully.

    Also considering a switch of turbo's to a H1E or similarly sized turbo,

    the 12.6 was full interior and removed the spare(s), with the small spare and full size spare in the trunk it was a 12.77. No drugs.... that i'll admit to... also cutting relatively crappy 60' times bc i had no stutterbox and it was the first time at the track. think 1.8/1.9 ish

    I also don't know that they made them in Europe, I do know they made them in Japan and continue to make current generations of them. As for road racing, I'm afraid that could be more costly overall than my current venture. For relation, I believe the EVO 1-3 are fairly similar to teh GVR4

    E85 is a great idea with a good tune. I'm thinking about it with my Allroad when I throw on my K04s.

    Stutterbox 7k launch, DRs, 33-35 psi on E85 and that turbo will get you low 11s at sea level with a good R/T. My friend has a green 92. We built the shot out of it. Love those cars. Just wanted something new smelling and a bit more reliable.

    Good luck, have fun and stay safe!

    Pontiac Grand Prix GXP w/ 5.3L LS4 V8. It's a great road trip car with plenty of passing power. According to press reports it hangs with a Hemi Charger until the lower triple digits. The FWD can hurt some the driving enjoyment. But living in an area that can see snow covered roads 5 months out of the year requires some compromises.

    Jeep JK Unlimited Rubicon. We missed our old TJ, and I rarely used the bed of my truck. So enter the JK. It really makes a better DD then our TJ ever did. I had my doubts, but the 3.8L V6 has won me over.

    My daily driver, photo taken today, although I have raised the front 1/4" since the photo was taken, and will be raising the rear 3/8" later tonight when it cools off.

    My old S-10 is a few pages back. I sold it, paid off my wife's van and bought my "Papaw" truck, a 1995 GMC Sierra that some fool let go when it had but a mere 164,000 miles on it.

    I've cleaned it up good, rolled in a DIY bedliner, and added "liberal repellant."

    The plan was to have no car payments for awhile and put more money aside for a 2011 Camaro. However, after renting a 2010 for the weekend I decided that I'd be happier with an older Camaro. Last month I picked up my "new- to- me" Camaro, a 2002 SS that had 10,449 miles on it when I drove it off the lot. Between my two vehicles, my wife's minivan, and my take- home car for work it looks like a used car lot around my house.

    Thanks. The exterior was pretty straight with some minor dings and a little rust on the driver's door. Mechanically it's in great shape. The belts and hoses had been replaced shortly before I bought it. The interior was the roughest. Previous owner was a smoker, so I had to replace the headliner, scrub all the plastic trim pieces, and even pulled off the dash panel so I could remove the HVAC vents and scrub them out. Took a lot of elbow grease, but it's good now.

    Finally! It took a forest of scented tree air fresheners and leaving the windows down while it was parked in the garage, but it's fine now.
