    Here's a couple vids I took for a friend interested in buying NOS. I figured I'd share them here too if anyone was curious about squeezing their neon. I know there's a couple neon owners on here ;)

    Right click and save them. They need to be viewed with Quicktime too. Sorry for the shakiness in some of it, I was the only one in the car and my NOS works on push-button.


    This guy I raced 3 times, everytime it turned out the same. The first vid was VERY shaky and the 2nd one I tried to get a shot out the back window and only got the rear deck :lmao: This was the only decent vid of running this guy :)

    He was at least cool after. He came up on the side, I was llaughing hysterically in the car, he started to laugh and gave me a thumbs up. I love when people doubt the pee-on cause it looks nasty as fuck :lmao:

    I counted it before, its like 8 seconds in the first and 5 in the second. You can see the 75HP jump in the race vid though :)

    Its got a lil more then just some spray ;)


    Figure the Neon weighs about 2000lbs gutted like mine is. I should have about 200whp with the NX on. That gives the Neon a .1 Power to Weight Ratio.

    350Z weighs 3000lbs, being nice there too. It has 287 from the factory which gives it 250ish WHP. That gives the Z .083 Power to Weight Ratio.

    Not all that crazy that I could pull away from him :)

    I looked up the curbweight of a Z, its over 3300lbs. Makes the PWR even worse, .075

    by your numbrs you have a 10lb/hp, which is pretty darn good. Thats around the same ratio for a Lotus Elise.

    Isn't the older STi supposed to have a 9lb/hp ratio ? The WS6 T/A does, and the MR2 SC did with a pulley.

    Heh I thought 350Z's came with over 330 from the factory, oops lol.
    Still impressive, and one hell of a sleeper.

    The early ones came with 287, I looked at the new ones and it said 300. My sister had one the first year they came out, it was quick but not terribly impressive.

    right now you should be about a 13.2

    I dont have a bottle heater yet, so it takes a few shots to get the bottle up to pressure and pulling really hard steadily. I bought a bottle blanket, it helps a lot but I still need the heater. The tach vids, it pulled hard but not as hard up top as it does after a few shots. It was working AOK when I raced that 350 though :)
