hey guys, i have one of those friends that are completely obsessed with...imports, yeah i know...eww. anyways he keeps saying that his nissan 300zx can beat my 98 mustang. i know i can beat him but i just wanna have no doubt in my mind, so heres my setup...

4.6L V8, 5 Speed Manual with Vortech Supercharging System with V2 SQ, roush short throw shifter, flowtech X-Pipe, Flowmaster 40 series Catback Exhaust, Comp 262AH cams,and a Diablo Sport Predator Tuner, and a cobra R Disc Brake Upgrade Kit...gotta stop sometime

i think im pretty darn safe...but theres no way to get those import guys to get it

Er...If it's just some old 300, no problem man...you'll smoke that and many other cars out there. But beware, I have seen some of those 300's put about 800 to the ground:yakyak:

Turbo?

The 300 was available with twin turbos, and several company are making turbo kits for the cars. If he has a turbo, he could be pretty fast.

im pretty sure that last years of the 300zx the N/A 6 cyl ran low 14s and im not really sure what a stock TT 300zx ran..... he might have a secret weapon

ohh well if he is ur friend it should be a friendly race....
and if you get beat atleast its by your friend and that gives you more reasons to mod up some more :nogrinner

the 262AH's are PI cams - you running NPI heads or PI heads/intake, etc.? IF NPI, even the PI intake is probably worth 30 HP on your car and an Anderson PowerPipe another 30. A C&L or other plenum easy 10HP also. Would do Powerpipe first, then plenum/TB - they WILL make a difference on a s/charged car.

On an S/C'd car, removing all breathing restrictions return HP. So, the Powerpipe, bigger throttle body, and better-flowing plenum give much better results than on a N/A car.

Maybe I missed it, but what year is this TT nissan?

My friend has a stock 93 TT 300zx... stock times are in the mid 13's, and believe me, its fast... My mustang can take him though. Top end is a different story, but from a stop its a decent race.

I agree with some of these guys though, obviously the 300zx has a decent aftermarket following, and just swapping out the turbos with aftermarket peices can throw these babies into the 400 pony region with ease... so beware...

My stang is throwing about 340 to the wheels, and I won. So with your set-up, plus a blower, I think you'll be fine. Just find out what hes running under the hood (if anything), and give'r..

yeah haha, you gotta love it when the persons mouth moves faster than there car....turns out he can barely drive a manual... needless to say i beat him by at least 7-8 car lengths. hes not going to show his face around me. I can only assume he missed a gear or something along the lines of ungodly bad shifting. in the end i was fairly disappointed, i was at least hoping for a decent race. twards the end i got off it and coasted in, i embarrased him enough. so in the long run, skillfull driving is the best mod you can get. :grinroll: but needless to say i felt pretty cool drivng past my x....she gave me the dirtyest look i have ever recieved ahhaha.

no matter hwhat way yuo look at it....that was a kill
