    That's awesome man, the Porsche turbo didn't really seem to want to play though.

    Your right, and I never saw him look at me once, even to give the thumbs up afterwards. But really, this guy probably gets all kinds of challenges from people wanting to see him make a pull.

    Fortunately for me, I believe I was in my sweet spot in rpm and 2nd gear when we took off. The following is what I recall about the pull:
    As I was getting around on the left side of the sedan that pulled out in front of us at the light, I was looking over my shoulder at the 911 Turbo's tail lights. At that point in time, I saw a "poof" of smoke from his car exhaust. It was on!
    When I am in my sweet spot, I get full boost immediately. Not sure about the Porsche 911 turbo spool characteristics?
    What happened over the next 7 or so seconds I don't really remember. I do remember pulling back into the center lane. I do remember pointing the camera over to the passenger side as he pulled up on me. And I do remember him hitting the breaks hard, which I did also, which threw my tote bag and reading glasses off the passenger seat onto the floor.
    What I don't remember, is shifting to third. I don't remember how fast we where going when he got around me. There was to many things going on I guess holding the camera, and plus, I must of been in the "Zone".
    I can only speculate that I was at the top end of third, and my car hit the fuel cut out. This happened once when made a similar pull with a C6 with a procharger. If I was at the top end of third, when he caught and passed me at ~92 plus mph. Anyway, need to get my car going for the 'drag strip'. My wife is on me for this stunt, guess she is right about that. Later,,,

    Considering that was a 997 turbo with the VTG turbos it spools pretty damn fast.

    You seemed to hold him off well but I need to see a 1/4 mile time out of you to really be able to compare.

    Made the first real pull using my new methanol secondary system at the 'track' this morning. Rich I know, as I like to error on that side. Not sure if I will remove some fuel or put more boost in her...

    By track in quotes you mean what I think you mean right?

    A little update:
    http://m.youtube.com/index?desktop_u...QE&view=videos

    So with the new meth system, I am able to get some more boost. On July 3rd, I headed down to Steele Alabama to hit the 1/4 mile. I had removed my walbro from the primary injectors, and wouldn't you know it, my BMW fuel relay went out right when I went to stage.

    Anyway, street tires and 22 # of boost don't mix well. Next step is some meats to plant the rear end down.

    Nice run with the E92!

    I'm going to copy that to its own thread if it's cool with you. Basically door to door!
