Your launch is gonna be crutial, some of those things are pretty quick but if he is running stock boost I think you will have a pretty decent chance. Also u got the b17 in an 2nd gen teg I am guessing? Perhaps before this race do a little bit of weight reduction and practice your launch. Thats all I can say to do and I think u will stand a fairly decent chance.

EDIT: Also what are u talking bout when u say GT?

Don't kid yourself. A turbo DSM with that really has that many mods will send you home crying. We're talking bus lengths here.

Im just speaking from experience. My friend chris has a 00 si with intake and exhaust, and nothing more and he beat a gst. He beat one of the older ones and he beat one of the 94-99 styles that was bone stock. He beat a friends old one that had intake and a downpipe. So I'm sure it had alot to do with driver but still, from what I have seen from stock boost on dsm's they aren't that fast.

Like I said... not close. Now that you've added even MORE mods onto his list it's looking even worse for you. I would guess a decent driver in that car shouldn't have a problem breaking 13's, probably trapping over 100. But it would depend on the psi, of course. If you know about how much he's boosting one of the DSM'ers here could probably tell you more.

Oh didnt see he updated the list. Ya he is definetly gonna hand u your ass lol. Sorry but he's definetly not running stock boost so don't even bother. Get yourself a cheap turbo setup or some nitros lol as cheap as it is.

i'll find out how many pounds of boost he is running, but he has the stock turbo all other things, i know that from reading the post here about gst it don't matter as long as he got a boost controller, he also got 18 if that helps me out! i was talking to him he wasn't confident on hitting 13's he says he doubt that but i'll guess well see

p.s. what can i do to beat this guy(mod wise)? thx

if you're gonna do it for fun go ahead but if you're thinking about betting money dont even think about it. he "should" run 13's if the vfac is tuned right and he knows how to drive he'll kill you.

well he has to have the afc setup somehow because otherwise it will run like shit.
stock they run 13psi. they could run 16-17psi but anything after that will fall on it face because the stock t25 turbo runs out of breath.
also make sure that he's still on the stock turbocharger.
if he swapped out for a 14b, 16g, T28...etc. you're asking for trouble.

gst's can hit 14 flat with 3 bolt ons i/h/e. With all the mods you listed for the gst, he'll be hitting mid 13's if his a good driver. what car has b17 motor?

I dont think you really have a chance in hell. I have a 95 Z28 with basic boltons and i beat my friends talon tsi fwd by about 2 carlengths, and he has a 16g turbo, greddy BOV, Greddy catback, pushin 17psi. he REALLY needs a downpipe and Boost controller like whoa. if gets that before i get my headers/y pipe and cam, im done for.
