VF-30 turbo'd PGT versus Buick Supercharged Reatta

Right, P&P head and IM, VF-30 turbo (non-ball bearing cousin of the STI's VF-22) and full 3" exhaust...Full weight.

Just dinking around on State after the movie with the GF I end up beside this light blue Buick Reatta...Boy would it be fun to dink around with him I think, as I have more than one freind running a tuned 3.8 supercharged motor. Well he randomly hits it and I hear the supercharger do it's thing, right past me...Next light from about 20 mph he hits it...I just stay in 2nd and punch it from a half a car behind...Boost comes up and 15 psi later and he's a half car behind!

I do really love beating people like that!

Haven't run it at 15 yet...at 8 psi it ran a 15 flat somewhat traction limited at 4500 ft. I'll say this, at 8 it was the fastest car I've ever owned and I beat lots of other respectable cars...at 15 I fight lots of torque steer...and lose lots of traction in 2nd.

I'd guess IF (big if) I could get good traction I could pull a low 14? Maybe a high 13? Dunno though.
