Even if u do quarter miles at the track on occassion - at least 80+% of your "races" is gonna happen on the STREET.

That is why it is probably more important how your car runs as a DD on the STREET.

60-100 in 4.04 seconds on pump gas, going up hill in a 3800lbs+ car

I'll get some better videos later on this week when the weather clears up

JP - first off congrats on the new twins. It looks so smooth that it looks like your redline should be 8K, not 7K. Also, whats the difference between these EPL stage 1s vs E92fan's upgraded turbos from UK? Are these using 8mm rods?

I'm not completely sure what the whole TD stage 1 kit consists of, i think the upgraded rods and such are an add-on if you want for extra $$. My turbos have a bigger compressor and clipped turbine. So far it's just as quiet as my no-wastegate-rattle stock turbos, so I'll just be keeping my fingers crossed that I don't have wastegate rattle for another 40k miles

The only time I go to NJ is when I have to drive through it to get somewhere else just kidding, but not really. But if there are any meets this summer somewhere in the middle maybe I'll go, although I don't really like car meets. Basically if you're around this area at some point let me know

Power delivery on the car was awesome. Pulled strong, but so smooth as well... very impressed with it

Honestly I'm not sure, give em a call. It might be interesting to do some same day comparisons. Does your buddy have a stock 335? are you guys XI's or I's?
