Should be a close race. Z24's are good for mid 16's with basic mods.

i got I/H/E, 5speed, pullies, 102 lbs. weight reduction, short shifter....

cavi Z24's still give me a run for the money....even when they have just intake and exhaust.

It will definatley be close to call. Just run it. If you get beat, you get beat.

Oh it would work... for about 2.5 seconds until a rod came through the block or a hole is burned in a piston.
I just assume that "shady shot" is an ebay scam. Has anyone tested the shady shot nitrous system?

I know dry nitrous is not safe to use with stock internals and without the right tuning ect to compensate fuel.

car lengths as a time measurement doesnt sound like it was "At the track" to me... keep the racing off the streets and hit up ur local drag strip. best of 3 loser pays gate fee.
