So its about 10pm and I decided to go BK because I was a little hungry. As I pull up theres two fox bodys parked in the parking lot with two guys hanging around. I had seen one of the cars before but never met the owner. I pull up and they both come over and say nice notch this and that. I asked the kid what he has done to his car..... his answer? EVERYTHING.... hmmm. I ask im whats everything? Oh you know ive got edelbrock heads a E303 and a Exploder intake....... First off thats the weakest set up ever next i ask what do u think your making for power ehh around 270 280 at the flywheel? Nope im making 400-430. That just ended it for me right there. I just chuckled and from there the BS just got thicker and thicker. I was just so surprised, I was waiting for him to crack a smile but nope he was dead serious....

Unbeleivable what people think there making for power hahah. oh and on top of it apparently he did a wheelie with it lmao

i think what happens is that people add up these numbers from the books they order parts from. when it says "up to 15 hp" when its actually like 3 hp. Im more of a humble person. I like to go by the lowest possible gain i could have. that way i can only go higher not lower.

My Ford Racing wire set gave me 10 Hp right out of the box and 1 second off in the 1/4 :grinroll:

I also run synthetic oil so you may want to think twice about a street challenge:laugh:

I think its pitiful when people take what ever car they have, and have a shop (they cant even do it themselves lol) install a $300+ intake on there car and then plaster the outside of the car with tons of K&N stickers and think they can beat anyone in a race + actually think they have knowledge of cars lol Its just sad.
