It's not turbo, it's NA. That's my car back when it was NA.

They stole my video :evil:

Well I was about to say! It seemed to go reasonably well but not what I would call anywhere near crazy quick. I was also wondering why the revs were dropping so drastically if it's turbo. If you look at the speedo carefully it seems the 0-100km/h was around 8 seconds which led me to believe it was a low boost setup. If that's N/A then that's some pretty good acceleration and yes sounds pretty mean but as mentioned don't let that decieve you into beliving a good noise necessarily equals huge speed or power. :P

Would love having my N/A go that hard some day. 8) What mods did it have at the time?

It had a custom 4-1 header, 2.25" exhaust, mild head job, 258 deg/ 8.6mm cams, 4.29 straight cut final drive... and the rev drop is actually a clutch switch cutting sparks for flat shift.

MegaSquirt is shizzle!
That gives you the features like flat shift and launch control and I'm sure it does a few more things I dont know about. :-P
