MY XR2 PROJECT/BUILD!!

And I must say so far I'd give my new centerforce clutch a good review, along with my general exclaim uhp tires. Together (so far) there a great combo. The clutch grabs great and dosent miss a beat and the tires have amazing dry grip. Im still in the break in period on the clutch so i havent cranked up the boost yet but im working on an exhaust right now so its just an open exhaust right before the cat. so it does boost creep to about 10lbs. I must say with a TON of weight striped, no a/c-powerstearing, decently free flowing exhaust, cone filter, great clutch and tires, and boost at roughly 10lbs this car cooks!! Cant wate for the fuel system, 16g, stainless exhaust, and front mount!!! Will soon easily be a 12 sec. car!!

Well I had differant plans for the the weekend but endend up staying in town. . therefore I was able to make it to open drag day at a 1/8 mile track. I only ran 3 times but was pretty happy with the result. The track is HORIBLE and it honestly felt like I was driving on ice it was so slick.  
 
 
 

My times are not the greatest because I was spinning the wheels in first and when I shifted to 2nd. But my trap speed's really wernt that bad. I think if I had a good start and good run I could have easily ran a 9.5 So all in all i guess im pretty happy with the base line numbers, my car is basically stock with only a rocketchip and MBC set at about 15psi, a cone filter, good clutch and decent tires.

The hatch was a friend of mine, he was acually #66 on my time slips (raced and beat him twice). Its just a tuned LS motor but it was dynoed at 189 horspower so that was a good judging factor for me. The other white car was acually a honda too but also slow. As you can see on my time slips I won every time. Gostlrs let me know what you run!!

Hey CoCo! I road in a newer civic a few months ago. The car had an after-market turbo system in place, edelbrock I believe. It was professionally installed and tuned. He claimed it dynoed at 280hp and was doing 13.4 quarters at 104mph with it. I've done 13.8 at 103 in my Capri but have not been on a dyno yet. My seat of pants dyno though tells me my car is quicker. I've not run into him at the track or on the road yet but am looking forward to it. My ride in Rocket's Rocketship gave me an impression, though he has neither dynoed it or supposedly not able to break 15sec quarters. His new reincarnation, the GTXR2, when finished should one hell of a monster. My question for him though is ability for the transmission to take such a beating.  Gus
