PianoProdigy replied to the thread My "fast car" journey leading up to my ~1000 awhp GTR "build" gunning for 8s and "no" lag.
" It wasn't cheap, and as above, I didn't set out to run 8s so it cost more than it could have. I will say that if I do go 8s, I will have done so cheaper than most if not all the other GTRs who have done so. Obviously, I could have done so in a fox body mustang for a heck of a lot cheaper, but that was never the point. "

The S54 sounds amazing. I like the raspy exotic tone. There is no other six like it.

Sticky created the thread Vengeance Racing C7 Corvette Stingray VRSC690 LT1 supercharger package Dynojet results and pricing.
" It is no secret that the new Stingray is already doing some incredible things in the aftermarket. Vengeance Racing in particular has been pushing the platform hard with the world's fastest boost only LT1 1/4 mile run hitting a blistering 144 miles per hour of trap speed.

]

This VRSC690 package is a bit more mild than the record setting supercharged setup but it uses a similar centrifugal blower with several different options. You can choose from an ECS, Procharger, or A&A head unit.

The dyno results below show an ECS unit and the output is 592 wheel horsepower on pump fuel. That is from the base kit with no modifications.

What does the kit include? American Racing long tube headers, catted x-pipe, spark plugs, ECU tuning, and of course the supercharger and piping. The total price for around 600 wheel horsepower is $9999.00 plus installation. That is not bad at all and there is room to grow with race gas, higher boost, etc. "

I was a doubter or hater about the exhaust as well. M3/M4 with stock exhaust I bet will sound like crap or too quiet. I was expecting to hear a sh*tbox going into the weekend, trust me. I am just being honest about what I heard. The safety car had titanium exhaust and no cats. It was loud, not raspy, and had its own unique sound. It was one thing that would have kept me from possibly getting one in the future. But after the race weekend, it changed my mind. Is it a S65, hell no. "

Is it me or does Bortles look like he is 45 years old.
It’s not a strong class, no. I’d just caution that ’12 was rare, Luck is the cleanest prospect I have ever scouted. Period. I can pull my scouting report for him, but IIRC the only real knock was good but not outstanding arm talent. Everything else was so obviously refined and nuanced, pro ready. So that was a unique situation.

I liked Bortles less the more I watched. My fundamental issue is his decision making. Much like accuracy, it is extremely rare that a quarterback suddenly learns to make sound decisions when going up to the highest level of competition. You are either smart with the ball, or you aren’t. Some of his decisions are truly awful, just disastrous mistakes that will get coaches and scouts fired. I could put together an hour long cutup of him making the objectively wrong read or decision, just flat out incorrect. And it worsens under pressure, which is exactly not what you want to see.

I’m higher on Zach than most...Love the arm talent, love the frame, love the pro-style coaching he got down there. He’s clumsy and heavy footed, but at his best I see Drew Bledsoe. No idea if he’ll ever take the next step though, but there’s far less of a projection with him. I see NFL traits out of an NFL type playbook.

now i flashed the car with the single turbo flash, would it help to solve the boost problem?

If I were running the show, I doubt Manziel would be on my board at all. Almost all of his attributes revolve around broken plays and improvisation. Worthy skills to be sure, and in fairness he does have rare field vision when on the move. But those traits aren’t what win in the NFL. It’s about what you can do from the pocket, fundamentally.

He does throw a natural deep ball, so credit to him for that. It’s a tough projection, pro-style guys will hate him, some of the more…I’ll be polite and say “creative” evaluators will fall in love with him.

One thing is for sure he is exciting to watch. But I doubt his crazy play will translate to the NFL. "
