Good man, to many squeezers pull themselves over times, not real world stuff that they should be worrying about, its refreshing to see someone who has actually done the work first, instead of creating dreamer threads, well done, A CIGAR FOR THIS MAN. BTW it looks good.

Yeah bloody oath. All these wankers talking about running 12's and faster at the track. Thats not where it counts. Its on the street, where you can race LS1's and 5 speed VN's. As long as you win WGAF what times it runs at the track.

Ive heard that real tracks arent even as accurate as Gtech's anyway. They dont take into account G forces so they cant be as good.

Hehe, real tracks is the way to settle arguments, set times, harder to lose traction so its no excuses. But not all roads have a prepared surface and thats where most of the driving is done i guess.

Still a 13.6 is really moving, for a budgetish type of build, that is a excellent result.

Good to see more falcs put gen 3's away.

to put things in to perspective my car was and still is running a 2.5" exhaust with a press bent tail pipe, stock ECU & Auto.
which is why i'm a little sceptical with either the dyno numbers or the times that are being claimed.

i guess you can't get real times being in SA but some newer dyno figures might tell a truer story.

well i mite question the accuracy of ur dyno readout but ultimately who gives a s**t?.. kw dont tel the whole story anyway, id rather hav my monster torque spread and giv away a handfull at 5grand+

bottom line its seriously fast on the street, ive yet to find a gen3 that can stay with me, f6s get left in the top end and wrxs are history after 80kmh so im happy with that.
cost to date is 6grand including purchase
