Hey guys/girls. So a little background on me... I race professionally in IMSA and coach other pro drivers for a living. That being said, I do not advocate racing on the street, but I recently purchased a 16 gti manual with a peloquin diff and an ihx475 turbo. I'm used to driving some pretty fast cars on track at work of course so my view of fast is skewed. In no way shape or form do I think my car is very fast but I have yet to be beat on the highway. Just today some guy in a v6 supercharged S4 guessing like a 2012 with exhaust and suspension, other than that I have no idea caught up to me and started to harass me so finally as he floors it I drop from 6th to 4th taking my time and eventually pull at least a bus length on him/her (tinted windows) lol seemed pretty butthurt, I just went back to doing 78mph in the right lane as he tried again to race me lol I have no idea what kind of power my car is making but so far it's been pretty fast in comparison, granted I think I've only "raced" one or two other cars. My buddy who is also a pro driver has one of those 3 series twin turbo BMW's that's tuned putting down around 430whp and we are dead even until we quit at around 130mph. My car looks bone stock btw I haven't installed suspension yet and has the stock cat back haha

Give it some ethanol.
Eh I just daily this car. Dont want to put much effort into it. I totally believe you about that, just dont care enough lol h&r sports and vwr shocks are about as far as I'm going with this car seeing as how the previous owner did the turbo and diff already. I appreciate the input though!

Nice driving.

In regards to the ethanol it helps the spool as well. Sadly once you try it you won't want to go back to pump, so maybe not, lol.

I made 430whp on pump on my IHX475.

Yessir! The owner was complaining about the car feeling very slippery so he had me take it out... basically the tires were shot!
I'm still torn on which one I like better, a E46 CSL M3 or a E92 M3. When the E92's came out, at first I didn't like them but they grew on me over the years.

haha was the first time I ever drove an e92 M3 I felt the same way, thing revved so high I had to adjust my shift points. after this video i knew i wanted one especially bc of the sound it makes!
They do sound pretty awesome with an aftermarket exhaust. What kind of an exhaust does he have?
