    :rofl: it's fucking nuts. T64, forged bottom end, custom fuel rails, 65# injectors, 14psi on pump gas, 50 shot of nos, bov on intake and exhuast, lol he cant touch the throttle til 70 mph, then 70-120 feels like it takes about 3 seconds. Looks BONE stock. I rode with him yesterday, I could get rich around here with that car. Smart fucking kid too, designed and built it all himself.

    lengthen the injector pulse a millisecond. Just tune the NOS timer, you'll run nines
