Javelin vs. import :)

So im driving along, just cruisng key avenue when my friend in his 240sx rolls up. were good buddies so he revs and i here his new blow off valve (240 has an RB20 skyline motor). ive beaten him before so i figure maybe now he can hang with his new parts Grin light turns red and we slowly cruise toward it. Right after we stop the light turns green. He takes off pretty quick and I had a slow reaciton. I drop it into low and boil the hides for a solid 30 feet! I wait for traction and when it hooks, I wave goodbye.....Theres no replacement for Displacement. Well...except when I get a turbo Smiley

Why a turbo when you could build the motor up more?whats the stats on your motor as it is?

the motor as of right now is mostly stock. It has hedman full length headers, torker intake, holley 750 and a detroit locker. full exhaust. I dunno why i would turbo it, it would just be fun. In all likelihood i will be getting a Zex perimeter plate long before i  have the cash for a turbo. the motor is probably pushing around 350-375 horses based on the way it pulls. A turbo would just be fun Smiley

There's no replacement like BOOSTED Displacement.
 
Ok, so what if you're making 350-375 horse (I assume at the crank). With a turbo, you can get that higher PLUS enough torque to stop the rotation of the Earth.

Yes definately at the crank lol. 375 to the wheels would be sweet though Smiley

I see you got a T turbo, so maybe thats why you lean that way. Sounds fast! All motor is cool too. But either way you still kicked a-- in the form you are in.  Smiley Smiley Smiley I like that most. SH

Yeah i definately love the javelin the most. The T is quicker, but it just doesnt sound right with the turbo 6. not loud enough  Cheesy Ive always been a turbo kinda guy but its hard to find the cash ( im a 20 year old college student and the T is a friends haha) so until i win the lotto. Nitrous is next on the list!  Smiley
