Doubtfull. I think the talon owners being over optomistic about the HP his controller added to the stock setup.
gt_stang2004 said:Hey whats going on guys?Well I am about to have a race either Friday or Saturday.Ok I know this guy Philip that just bought a Talon TSI few months ago that is a 96 model 5 speed.His engine is almost completely stock except for an aftermarket exaust,Cold air intake,Aftermarket blow off valve and boost controller.His boost is set at 17 I think because thats its maximum setting.He is claiming that he has 300 horsepower with that set up.Now I dont know much about imports engines but thats alot of gain with just a boost controller and a couple bolt ons cause those things are 210 stock.
Then I have a friend Travis that has a 94 police interceptor Z28 and its the real deal.He doesnt know whats done to it though cause his dad had a 55 chevy belair and traded in on the Z and gave it to his son.All I do know about it is that its freaking strong and feels way more torquer then my 03 GT or 95 GT.We do know it has a cold air intake and dude who traded it to them claims it has a chip its also 6 speed.But like I said I dont know whats done to it besides that cause you cant really tell.It does feel stronger then a z28 and since its a police interceptor is should have aleast something extra.Now then there is me in my 03 GT.Basically stock with a few mods.Intake,Gears,off road pipe,flows,shifter,pulley etc but nothing major.I figure I am not supposed to race but I will join the party.
Now my real question to you all is what you all think will happen?Can a talon with 17 pounds of boost make over 300 horse on stock engine.The dude that drives the Talon sucks at driving by the way big time.He doesnt slam gears for **** he just puts them in gear.I mean its really sad too but i am glad he cant drive for ****.Travis in the z28 can shift really well but I have more time behind the wheel of my GT and I know it like nothing else.I am great at racing it cause I have spent time and time with it.Anways any info would be much needed.And when the race happens posted it will be.Thanks
Kyle F said:I know F-Bodies... Police interceptor is a ford package. What you mean is a B4C. I thin they just had some of the electronics missing and were hard tops. Which simply means they were cheaper and a slight bit lighter, this also included the 1LE upgraded suspension components, but not brakes(I am not 100% sure on this one).
Its an LT! with a 6-speed and a 3.42 rear-end... yea its going to feel strong, and more torquey than your GT.
That Talon.. with the boost turned up will own off the line, but it will run out of breath. Its set at 17 because that is all the stock fuel system can handle. It was a 225 AWD car stock. SO with his bolt ons.. he is probably around 275.
You Mods shold put you in the range of about 275 as well, but the Z started out with 275, and if its got a CAI on in but no Cat-back and a Tune... maybe 285-290. So it sounds liek its going to come down to a drivers race, but I the the AWD will slow the Talon down after 2nd gear.
It depends on Traction, shifting, and tune between you and the Z. Good luck and let us know how it turns out.
At 7 secs, he's got maybe 225 hp, at the Crank!!!gt_stang2004 said:Well we haven't raced yet cause thats for this weekend but I did ride in his talon tonight with a stop watch and I must say pathetic.He couldn't muster a better 0-60 then 7 secs and took him 17 secs to hit 100.He can't drive for ****.His car isnt awd drive neither.His car just hops real bad on take off and his shifts are slow as hell.My car hits 100 i know around 13-14 seconds and I figure I can kill him.Maybe if he drove better but he cant and thats all there is to it.All he has is exuast,intake and the boost controller.His car stock was only 210 so what would you all think he has now.I wanted to race him tonight by the way but we are all just waiting till we get everything ready cause this is going to be alot of racing cause he just never gives up.
Well, I guess if he has a Twin Turbo Set up.... your Fu(ked LOLkscoyote said:There were Police Interceptor Z28s, they still run here in Nebraska!!
One stopped me in Kansas with a twin turbo setup
It was built for (mainly) the guys in Ft. Riley running 300ZTTs, Corvettes, and Porsches.
