I fixed the slight problem with my megasquirt this evening, and took the car out because I didn't get to drive it all day Smile

So I decided to take the highway into town, and cruise by the university to look for some college kids to race. 15 minutes later I was pulling up to a light near the college and I see an orange mid 90s Mustang GT go pulling by. He had big exhaust pipes and rumbled by, not even noticing me.

So I get to the light and go to pull out behind him ASAP. The car stalled! DOH! I REALLY REALLY REALLY need to tune this damn thing. So I restart it and pull out, chugging slightly until I come into boost and catch up quickly as the light we're approaching turns yellow.

This Stang was nice. It had big exhaust pipes and big (probably 17" or 18") chrome wheels. Nice looking. So I pull up along side and he's not paying attention to me. I rev up pretty high a few times as I pull to a stop, and he looks over at me and smiles. He revs up on me quickly, and I kinda flinched. It was L-O-U-D.

So I get to the light and stop. The car stalls again. DOH! DOH!

I begin cranking, and it takes maybe 5ish seconds to get it started again. He's laughing at me Embarassed So I kept the revs up a little and occasionally gave him a high rev to show him I was going.

He revved back once or twice, I dunno if he heard my turbo or not, but I didn't really care. I just hoped he didn't have tons of work done. I figured it would be an easy kill if he didn't have much done.

The cross street light turned yellow and he brought his revvs up, ready to launch.

My heart began pumping and my hand began trembling on the shifter. My stomach was turning itself in knots. I love this feeling...

The light turned green. I bogged slightly off the line as I waited for the boost to build, and he rocketed off. The boost was there by about 2000rpms, and I shot forward, the wheels screaming in protest as I spun loose.

My blow off valve announced second gear, and he was maybe a full carlength on me. I shifted so fast, I had boost immediately after dumping the clutch. The wheels chirped, and I rocketed forward. The turbo was whistling like a jet liner and I reeled him in and passed him as my tires struggled with all their might to retain traction. I kinda felt myself sliding a bit sideways and kept the wheel going to correct my trajectory.

I went into third about a 1/2 carlength in front of him, my blow off valve spewing the compressed air, momentarily fogging my windshield as it left from under my hood.

I eased into 3rd gear and continued to pull slowly on him, increasing my lead to maybe 2 carlengths by the end of the gear.

When I shifted into 4th, he began pulling on me slowly. As I hit 90, I let off, maybe a full carlength on him. He went flying by and let off as he realized I stopped going.

My exit to get back on the interstate was coming up, so I pulled over a lane, expecting him to go flying by me. To my surprise, he dropped back, and got on my butt and took the bypass exit too.

I slowed down around the exit curve to maybe 40mph, him riding my butt. He flashed his brights at me and I looked in my rearview. He was holding up his hand and mouthing "Wait" at me. So I pulled out and merged onto the highway, doing about 40, and he pulled up next to me and rolled his window down.

"You let off as I was going to kill you. Want to run again on the open highway? I'll eat you up."

I smiled and said okay, and that this time I would run my regular boost level. He made a funny face and dropped a gear, taking off on me before I could get ready.

I reached up and turned my boost controller from setting 1 (7psi) to setting 2 (12.5psi), dropped it to 3rd gear. Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil I ripped the wheels loose briefly and then took off like a bat out of hell. His carlength lead quickly fell and as I shifted into 4th, I began to pull ahead of him.

I rocketed forward, being pushed so far back in my seat, I almost pissed myself. I pulled on him so hard, I wish I could've seen the look on his face.

I went up until about 120mph and was a good 10 carlengths ahead of him when I finally hit the breaks and slowed down.

He never caught up with me. I guess embarassed. God I love turbos...

and he thought he was going to Kill Bill. The guy is probably still shaking his head. Way to blow his nuts off the highway.
