The saleen blower is a pretty good setup. Have you regeared your car with the vortech? What trouble are you having?

Here is mine.

I've had a few imports and domestics.. You can make 1k HP with either. Both will blow up just as easily.

After you see this video.. You might want one too. I don't think it's 1K hp but it's good enough for the straight and curves.

Orangefont, i'm not having trouble with it, she just gets me INTO trouble! thats a clean mustang too man. I haven't regeared or anything, she basically bone stock and I had to redo the pulleys and made my own intake and stuff, I got the dizzytop real cheap locally from a guy but it wasnt the whole kit. I'm probably selling my car to get an 09' vette, so it's gotta go back to stock anyways!

I see your rice-cake videos, and I raise you a blue oval nightmare

Cool! I'm from NY so we go street racing all over ,,,, Huntspoint, 150th, Raceway Park NJ, ect...The only real competition on the street is bikes. lol big bikes at that! 1000cc or better..

There you have it. The amount of smoke and dust created by the camaro would just make the integra not want to race.

Just felt the need to clarify that.

p@dDy

Mines not even anywhere close to those numbers anymore.

1995 Z28 (originally the LT1)

LT4 Conversion

Stroked (Thats 383 C.I. for you import guys.)

Forged interals

Heads have stage 2 porting done by Arizona Speed & Marine

Moser 9" rear end ( Kept shattering the stock ones)

175 shot wet Nitrous system by NOS

12.20 on street tires @ 127MPH (More of a smoke show than a pass down the drag strip)

11.04 @ 130 On E.T. Streets on a 150 shot

dont know what it will do on the 175 shot broke a tranny we will see what it can really do this weekend if the weather holds out.

Don't think so buddy, my cars are meticulously maintained and I expect top performance from all my equipment whether it be a body clip or an engine.
The Fioroni just didn't deliver compared to other alternatives.

I'm glad you have had a good run with yours, but anybody I've met that has tried one has come to the same conclusion. In fact I don't know of one person in my country still using one.

Might as well post my 04 Cobra too 100% stock motor, valve covers have never been removed. Just the supercharger removed and twin turbo's installed I do miss that car, as I was ran off the road last Feb, and it was totaled from hitting a concrete barrier at around 80mph. But here she is:
