Too many bald eagles to count... Also, Mud there is only one cam.

I had a FI 302 with an intake, LT's, bumped timing, etc. It put down a whopping 245rwhp on a DynoJet. On spray it made like 360 something.

I think mine look just as bad after 3 events. But its never the driver. It's the setup 😂

that upper left tire is peeling away. Rt660, not sure why...guess it goes on the back axle to see if it gets worse or stops doing that.

This reminds me of Antonio Tarver vs. Roy Jones 2.

At the start of of fight when the Ref asks if there are any questions Tarver asks:

"What's your excuse gonna be tonight Roy?"

IDK how many HP's but I do know it has two cams....left bank/right bank

It is louder than fast. LT Headers/H pipe and minimal mufflers. I must be going fast because loud noise and rattles. Mrs Mud asked once about all the road noise and I had to explain modern cars and sound insulation. I am thinking it'll beat GTI in an the 1/8 but will start to lag at the 1/4. It is quick off the line but with the gearing you have to do a bunch of shifting and it gets rather "exciting" to drive over 80 (manual brakes and 60 YO) I do have the matching rims but the previous owner was going for old school look when you would put slicks (aka bald tires) on steelies for runs. I like the look but I'm not sure I'm going to keep it. I probably will rather than giving the tire shop a chance to mess up.

Italian tune up tomorrow for GTI on our way to minor folk festival

How well does that work on our direct-injection engines? I just always assumed it wouldn't have an effect.

I prefer hill climbs at 4k for my Italian tune up needs.

Even if it does nothing for the engine it's way more fun the 4k on the highway...unless you just stay at 4k to constantly have boost available while roll racing.

I remember someone on here making fun of someone else for only roll racing. He called the dude "Bakery Boy" 😂

there is a patent from VW for it (20-30 minutes @ 3-4K) it is the heat soak that does it. I'm not convinced it does anything but believe it does. I will just hwy speed in 4th for a period of time

Cars driven hard definitely don't have as bad of carbon issues than cars grannied around. Buddy of mine who drives like a complete asshole all the time had barely any buildup at 120k miles. Other gtis I work on are caked around 40k.
