my buddy has a 05 wrx sti with exhaust we were eating lunch today and about to go to a buddys house, he says " hey lets get on the freeway and if theres not much traffic lets see what that thing can do"...

so me being all giddy and shit said " if theres no traffic for atleast a 1/4 mile ahead of us ill go for it"

so we get on the freeway there was a little traffic so we slowed down to about 60 in the slow lane, it cleared up to what i felt would be enough space to run then shutdown...

now im not mr. street racer or anything like that they will crush ur shit now lol..

but we lined it up i put it in 3rd gear 3 honks and were off... i was very suprised.. 3rd gear we were right next to eachother.. i put it in 4th at about 82 he pulled about half a car, i put it in 5th at about 107 he pulled another car up to 132.. i let off we slowed down and i had a smile...

yes he beat me, but i still hung with him damn good and sti's are usually really fast... but it made me happy..

now im not revving the fack out of this thing, i shift around 7700-7900 that feels like its right in the powerband every shift...

just a rant.. im happy i kept up with an sti... now i gotta build the hatchie to beat him at the track:)

so when the tach says 7700 im at 7300... that wouldnt make sense cuz then i would be shifting out of vtec, my vtec engages at 5500... or i would be shifting right into the vtec point.. wich its not.. i shift from 7700 to 6200 almost every gear except 5th, since 5th on the itr tranny is a little longer then 5th on a b16 tranny

my b16w itr cams b16 trans when i hit gears about 8300 before tune i'd drop to 6400 and after tune 8800 and would drop to about 6600 or 6700.


it's not going to hurt that motor taking it to 8500 at all.

nice race man! u needed to get a video of it....
ill set it up again... but i dont want to be trying to hold a video camera while trying to drive and shift at the same time... its hariy enough going from 70 to 130 as quick as it does...

yea i know its not gonna hurt it.. i need to go back for a retune, then go get it dyno tuned but i just dont feel comfortable taking it up that high.. its not worth it to me honestly i paid alot of money for the swap, i dont wanna go out and blow it up.. its not a d lol.. trust me ive had my fare share of d motors (about 10) i used to take my z6 up to 9k all the time stock with a cam ... but this.. i kinda wanna take care of it if u know what i mean

thanks everyone for the comments... the guy that had the motor before me told me he ran a 13.30 with 24 inch slicks in his full interior si hatchie, he said if i get 22 inch slicks, i could probably cut a better time.. well see when boti comes up if i can get slicks

between the z6 and a b18c5, i think the c5 would be more apt to handle it... lol... it should have been the other way around (take care of the z6 and rev the crap out of the c5)

yea lol.. c5 cost 10x more then a z6... i can get a z6 from a junkyard for 200 bucks.. no big deal lol :)

but yea ive been revving it up more ... just to around 8200 but not all the time i ran my friends dohc zc turbo in a del sol si at 3 am... i pulled about half car and we were at taht the whole time... i also helped build his car up so it should be fast.. but i was suprised i didnt pull him anymore than i did...

eh but ill smoke him from the dig... i need to get it tuned also :) 2nd week of june i should have the money to get tuned.

thanks for all the positive comments guys:)

keep the d's rollin.. i gotta pull the motor out of the hatchie so i can start building it sometime soon... atleast tear it down :)

Your engine just gave me a call it says it feels it needs a 12.5:1 CR, JUN stage 3 cams, and ITB's before it'll be happy. It also said it doesn't like it when you use it to carry around fat women. :D

Haha, nice race and good luck w/ the build. :TU:
