I wouldn't say I killed it, but I had fun with a 350Z.

My buddy in his stock S13 was in front of me at a light, next to a Z. Had exhaust, but I don't know if it was stock aside from that. My buddy got on it, and I saw the Z get squirrely grabbing second, and saw it pass the 240 rather easily.

I pull up to it at the next light, and tell him I saw him get a little loose in second, he claims it was the "Street tires" and that I don't know what my car will do, but I'll give it a shot.

I've never launched my car very hard, but it runs phenomanally, so what the hell. Left foot on the brake, see the opposing lights turn yellow, right foot on accelerator, bringing it to 3k, while in "D" the whole time. Light turns, left foot lifts, and I'm launching forward with a huge smile on my face.

I heard a little tire noise off the line, but can't be sure if it was me (on Conti-Trac economy tires) or the Z (Street tires, yo.), but I knew I'd have him off the line, so I just kept it planted. Shifting into second, I still didn't see him. In second, I'm wondering when he'll be passing me. Approaching 50, and I'm surprised I'm not seeing tail lights. As I hit 60, he goes past, and I let off.

Given I haven't done the "power" override, I think I'd have held him longer had I been able to have higher shifting points, and maybe if I had done 2-3 myself, (if someone can shed some light on that, I'd appreciate it.)


Next light, I pull up to him again, and tell him it was fun, but that's it, I won't put more strain on the car. He asked if it was turbo'd, and I just said it was stock. His next question was asking how many cylinders, and his expression when I said 4 was hilarious.


TL;DR-Held a 350Z until 60 from a light, in my stock 93 TW.

FWIW, the full throttle shift points stay around 6000 even with power mode or attempting manual shifting. Its not like the newer cars where you can bounce off the red line in lower gears.

Well, I'd be fine with that, but I believe the shift points were around 3-4k, right when I was getting into the power band I liked.

Well then yeah, if that's the case a power mode switch would've helped you out, lol.

Here you go. As previously stated, its definitely worth the effort, and really not too hard to do.

Yeah definitely doing it. And I replicated the situation, and realized that during it, I wasn't in power mode. Since I was brake boosting at the light, and went from holding it at 3k, to flooring it, it never activated the Power Mode. So hopefully when this is done, I'll have better luck.

Hmmm... see, I assumed you might have already been in power mode from the launch, because when I brake-boost I have it floored until it hits 9psi :D

Nope, I had brake in, and slowly brought it to 3, and then floored it at the change of the light. And I don't have a boost gauge or controller, so I'm on whatever is stock.

Killed!... a BMW 760 tonight. At least I think it was a 760. It was definitely a 7 series and the fender badges read 'V12'.
Somewhere in rural Thurston Co., I found myself sitting at a red light next to said BM, which was creeping up as the adjacent light turned yellow. 'Here it comes' I thought to myself, while also keeping a close eye on the adjacent traffic lights as they changed to red, the slipping transfer clutch and missing front axle in the back of my mind. My foot was almost to the floor as my light turned green with the bimmer not far behind and the merge quickly approaching. My lead surged as his reaction was just slightly delayed (perhaps as a result of counting his Benjamins, his windows tinted too dark to tell), then I looked over to see that my lead was growing. The transfer clutch fully engaged by this point and full boost achieved, I was so proud of the limping Subie as she held her ground and forced the BM to yield in behind to proper loser tailgating, where it belonged.

Long story short: my 4EAT 22T legacy wagon, running RWD, beat a V12 BMW off the line up to ~60mph.

I got a cheap blow dealt to me a little while back after my swap. I had JUST sorted out all of my bugs with the 550 tune. Did a single 19psi pull on the highway up to about 7000 in 3rd, and my charge pipe blows it's c-clamp off, causing me to just start blowing black smoke if I go over 10psi.

At the very next light one of the guys from work pulls up in his '10 Mini Cooper S. SERIOUSLY?! I tried my damndest to hold him without flooding the engine, but with only 10psi and part throttle he handily got 3 lengths on my by 80. Which I guess isnt that bad considering he was flat-out. But still... worst timing ever.

These are great!

I don't have anything except today some dude pulled out in front of me in a brand new Cadillac. I had to swerve into the other lane so I wouldn't rear end his dumb ass. He thought I rolled up on him wanting to race and I could see him say, "I'll smoke you." He was too dumb to realize he almost had my SVX plowing into his ass end at 50 mph. Oh, and of course then he wanted to fight me which was wonderful. Between him yelling at me from in front and me having to avoid his break checks, it was definitely the weirdest case of steering wheel tough guy I have come across. Not sure where his young rage was coming from. If I had time I would have stopped and laughed at him.

Stories of F-bodies being taken down by turbo Volvo's (even in stock form) are plentiful :D

I got killed by a jeep liberty (yeah I know sad) on a double lane to single lane on ramp to the highway. It was like the guy wanted to hit me, and the funny thing was I had the right of way. I was headed back from the junk yard with a quarter panel and I'd rather loose to a jeep then have to turn around and go get another one lol. I will admit, this being my first turbo subaru I'm still getting use to people wanting to race almost every time i go somewhere.

This thread is awesome by the way....great stories guys!

I've seen a 4.0L Cherokee Sport lay waste to an Integra. Looked up the specs later and it turns out those old little Cherokees are light as fuck for an SUV. Definitely sleepers.

Yeah dude. Haha high displacement and a great power to weight ratio. Seen people get smashed by them. They now make even crazier ones I think though. Turbos and such.
