    I had my sol tested on the dyno today and with the header, cam gear advanced 3 pts,cat back, and intake I found that shes cranking 139.8 horsepower, now I am planning on running a turbo with 7 lbs boost but I am not sure if that will give me what I want
    the question is where can I come up with 40 hp. my goal is 180 horse to put me somewhere in the mid 13s

    Even a t3 setup would give you that much.

    40hp out of a t3 setup is more than easy to do... but you might want to turn that cam gear back

    What motor is that? 139 is low for a B16A, and 139 is too high for a D16Z6.

    You want us to believe that a 125hp at the crank SOHC, dyno'ed at 139 to the wheels with I,H,E and 3 degrees timing advance? Riiiiiiight

    alright through some calls and shit I guess I was misunderstood and that is supposed to be the HP at the crank not at the wheels at the wheels I guess I should be running right around 120-125, as for quarter mile I have removed the AC, passenger seat, spare, interior cubbies, and the top, thats also with only 1/8th a tank of gas and a CF hood, I estimated the car to be about 2000 lbs and used the quarter mile time calculator on a link at this site so most of this is prediction but anyway my goal is to get this sol to run the strip in 13.anything

    And yes for those of you who dont know I am a nooB

    I knew soemone would think that stupidass 1/4 mile estimator was accurate. That thing is a POS and is not correct, dont believe it.
