Got a link? Would like to see that video.
It was in a Facebook group. I didn’t see him post it on IG or anything.

Looks like a sketchy spot to run
It is.

I drove by there on the way home from work tonight. They are right in front of the shop racing towards a blind corner. Not a extremely busy road but pretty fucking stupid to be racing in that direction.

Type R's are coming up too, it is reportedly pretty easy to make ~420whp on a pretty basic bolt on setup!

Didn't even look like that Civic was trying...maybe he realized racing in that area wasn't a good idea....

Everytime someone brags about beating another car, it's almost a guarantee the other car wasn't even racing and just driving normally. Say it all the time, it's easy to win a race when the other person isn't racing.

Made some progress on the DTR install this weekend. Found a unexpected oil leak that I need to tend to (just german car things). Other then that, surprised how easy it was to swap the turbos. Took a few more comparison pictures between the IS38 and the DTR in case anyone was interested.

The one thing I found funny, is the sheer difference in size of the turbo inlets.

^ nice, patrykd07! so you need to fix the leak first before you can call it done and go dyno?

remind me please, you have the 'basic' R kit right, no MPI but the LPFP/HPFP? And you're DSG or no? And do you have an intercooler?
