    Damn I thought you were kidding! I've never looked at HPF products but I guess your right if stage 4 costs $49k stage 5 must be $60k. Going only by this thread am I correct that there are people out there that spend $49k on engine mods to go 11's??? If so I'd like to get a grudge race setup asap with one please!!!

    This threw me off for a second as I forgot about that.

    Will this package be compatible with the Steed Speed manifold as well?

    you have to also take into account the trap speed. but i do agree, if an n54 can hit 10's why not the s54. also i'd figure people buying stage 5 arent drag junkies... nor are they track rats, they want a highway monster.

    Is the stage 5 car going to be a drag car? If so, what do you drag nuts think it could run with well setup suspension and the getrag 6 speed / other transmissions?

    The BMW Getrag sucks with its gear ratio's for drag racing IHMO. With a huge turbo, the lag, the 4.23 first gear and 2.53 second gear, I would imagine this setup would only be good for mile racing. The smaller T67 still holds the record for 1/4 mile. After driving my Stage 3 on the street, I could only imagine what this will be like. I imagine it's going to be extremely lethargic just driving around, however go WOT, add some wings and it might actually fly.

    These things need a powerglide and some proper suspension/rear end work to show what they can do. I wouldn't mind building one for drag duty... I just might.

    Do it! There's a lot more to a drag car than most people seem to realize, it's time for someone to show the world how fast these things can be in a 1/4 mile. I don't see why a proper drag E46 M3 with a two speed drag transmission and over a thousand at the wheels couldn't break into the 9s.

    I don't see why 8's would be out of reach if done properly for dedicated drag duty.

    JT's car is basically this, but with an E36 M3 body. It will run low 7s...and possibly 6s deppending on how far he decides to go with is current trans. (He'd need to change trans to go 6s)

    There are "stock 6-speed" Supras that have seen 8s (even one in the high 7s) with IRS, and they are a similar layout to the E46 M3. HPF Stg5 cars should be able to break well into the 10s, and to be honest I'd expect 9s with a good driver and it setup properly.

    I think the Supra just has a rear end that is far more stout along with many more people drag racing it.

    I'm sure a company like HPF could beef up the rear end. Click here to enlarge

    I'm sure they could, but it might sacrifice the other aspects of the car. In real world roll on situations, these cars are blazing fast.

    Oh I'm not saying they are slow by any means! But if they raced around where I live, they would be SOL, unless someone actually agreed to a 80+ mph roll race haha.
