Me vs 05 modded srt-4

So yea, went out to the races tonight with some friends. My friend with another 07 accord asked me to roll out with him so i did. Met up with a bunch of people and chilled for a lil bit then, got the urge to race someone. So i see a red srt-4, no hood, driver said its "all stock". So i say, "never mind, i don't want to race if its all stock". Then thats when he says, alright let me see what you got, i popped my hood, nothing special for me, (V2, Greddy evo2, and UR pulley). He says sure i'll race you then. When we are about to leave, he puts his hand in his motor, i think he was upping his boost controller cause he couldn't do it from the inside of his car. So we went from a dig and a roll. From a dig, i had him off first and second, and then he just pulled like 2 cars in 3rd and kept pulling in fourth. Second run we went from a 1st gear roll, did a lot better, lost by like a car, it kept pulling though. Went back to where we met up at and he was like yea its stock, "im only running 13lbs," i knew it was B.S already because i beat plenty of stock srt-4's. So before we left, he said, 'yea i'm not gonna b.s you, i'm running 19lbs, 3 inch downpipe, and its chipped." so yea there we go.

Overall a good run. Got a vid of it on my friends camera, will post when i can get a chance.

P.S I need my car done Paul!

Sounds almost identical to the SRT-4 I raced a while back. I lost to him by about 3-4 cars by the top of 3rd if I remember right. Of course he already had a car on me since I was right behind him at the light. Good thing he wanted to race otherwise I woulda smacked the back of him off the light when I floored it Good run though. You'll be taking cars like that down, soon enough

That is pretty impressive. I hate the SRT4's. He probably didnt tell you he was modded so if he lost he wouldnt get clowned. Its hard to keep up with 19 pounds of boost no matter what you have.

don't want to waste my money cause paul is already working on custom cats and with the all the turbo piping i won't need the downpipe anymore.

yes 19lbs of boost is a lot.. especially when the weather over here in arizona is starting to drop(especially at night). Turbocharged cars love this weather.

I have raced quite a few SRT's. I have lost by 5 cars and have been dead even with a stock one.. they pull really hard in third and fourth..

I Hate it when people say "oh, my car is all stock" knowing they have about 2 grand in mods under the hood.

One night I was at the track (RIP)
it was Neon Night or some crap.
There were a couple SRT-4s with
slicks turning low 13s. I have
the timeslips, they were spanking me
badly, spitting flames and stuff.
Still, they are friggin Neons.

I used to own an SRT-4 and I can assure you, with a $5 dollar spring attached to my stock wastegate to increase boost to 18-19 lbs and my catless side exit exhaust costing around $250, I could pull just as hard as that SRT-4 in the video. It is much cheaper and cost-effective to mod an F/I car than an N/A car.
Of course, I later pulled the spring out and put in a $100 wastegate actuator instead.

Nice try mang. LOL, where did that race happen? I'm so out of the loop on the good spots, not that I want to street race or anything. Actually my buddy has a lightly modded SRT-4 and we're thinking about doing a Friday night at Firebird soon. Should be interesting.
