Supra2NR is on a distinguished road
Default turbo88 vs 98 gtp

a guy in my block wants to race me after my swap

how does our car stack up with the gran prix gtp
as everybody knows its the supercharged one
im guessing about 225 hp with 200 lbs/in
its an auto tho

and my car would probly have
the stock 7mgte
maybe the intake done
and a 2.5 flowmaster exhaust
(i gotta do sumthing about that exhaust i know)
my car has a hollowed rear
(no spare, no backseat)

anybody knows how much those gtp's weigh?
any predictions about the race

I'd say you'll lose. You probably need around 270rwhp to roll with a gtp, they are surprisingly quick.

my grandpa owns a Grand Prix GT, its fairly quick. but im pretty sure my N/a would take it. it says.. on this site with stock 1/4 mile times, N/a supa 15.2 and the GTP is 14.9- the GTP's still wiegh around 3400lbs too. and im pretty sure if you had 270rwhp, youd walk all over it. they only put out 215ish fwhp stock.

its an automatic too
which makes it a little slower and robs a little bit of horsepower
should be a good race.

and another thing what about an 04 350z

i dont even have a car,but pple want to race me
this sH!t is crazy,
i jus find it funny,

Automatics are not slower...I dont know why everyone thinks that. Esepcially once you get the hp/torque numbers to spin wheels. Then the auto has it. Much better launch, And no time lost shifting. The only real advantage manual has is that if you dont have that much power you can put 3500 rpms worth of power to the wheels when your not moving, Which is good for front wheel drive 4 cyls. And the gear ratios are a little closer and higher than an auto. But that gtp is going to have a lot more torque than your supra (almost 300 ft lbs i believe) So he wont need the clutch slipping launch. But im sure with a few mods and the turbo, Youd beat him in the end. You just need some exhaust flow, lexus/550s, And a boost controller

but yea,
im pretty sure i can take the gtp on heads up
with no problem after the turbo swap

then the other guy, 350z n/a but how many horses does those things have
and how much do they weigh

and sum fool with an 03 civic wants a race too
i dunt even know what he has but it looks pretty rice to me
i've seen him try to speed in my block,
jus sounds like a gang of bees flying by

do i have a sign on my head that says "race me"
i dont get it,
i talk to them asking if they know where i can get an engine
i tell them my car isnt running
i tell them i dunt have a car right now
and yet they jus ask me to race them
either im going stupid here
or theres sumthing off in the picture

last time i was driving with my girl on the car
this guy with a g35 pulled up beside me and he was looking at me and he wanted a race,
i know i cant win against that
so i was driving , he pulled up again tryin to talk to my girl
so i swerved hard to his lane acting like i was gonna hit him
hilarious!!!! a brand new g35 coupe crashing to the curb,
the bumper,fender,rims, i bet they all grinded the curb leaving a pretty good mark
