      Thanks Paul. Come January I can turn in my current jersey plates and get QQ historic plates for it. Once that happens I have no more state emission inspections to worry about. When that time comes I will remove the vibrant 3" cat converter on the car and make the new center section catless and out of aluminum to shed some weight. I think that may help up top a bit. The tune hasn't really been touched on the car at all since the sri went in back in April, and even then it was really only a quick basic street tune. Lugnuts made a small adjustment after I made 2 passes with the new intake setup, but we had other issues with the car so we didn't get to really mess with it much. There should still be some more power in it to free up.

      Was there any improvement with the sri? It doesn't have runner compensation correct?

      I thought NJ plates were the lightest for you blokes?

      I would be down. Give me a couple more passes and I think we can shave some more off. If not I will bring my helmet and see if that does the trick.

      No runner compensation at all, I ported the oem lower section and we used a 3.5" ID D-shaped plenum from Ross Machine. Due to fitment issues with the A2 chassis, we have about 6-7" on 3 inch tubing from the end of the plenum to where the throttle body actually sits. In my mind, I pretend its a torque tube lol. I've picked up 2-3mph and about 3/10ths of a second in my ET since installing the sri so there is a definitive improvement. Down low the car still feels like a cam'd A2VR6 with faster gears but from 4K and up it feels much much stronger, almost like a vtec type powerband now.

      And don't worry about NJ plates, thats our little secret in this state.

      Funny how I gave Cecco some advice and his next passes were the quickest and I believe fastest he has made in the car. Picked up a couple of tenths and I think 2 mph. Guess the driver mod works even outside the car.


      I do agree he needs more up top to be where the car should be.

      Cecco kept poking me so I got out of my rocking chair and made some passes yesterday at the Pittsburgh Classic in my '98 12V GTI:

      1.7048/ 5.2075/ [email protected]/ 10.6535/ [email protected]

      Car is porky @ 2555#-- still full street car status, 5-lug, big brakes and all. Sometime I'll get around to shedding some more weight.

      Still not satisfied with the engine combo, but I'll be working on it.

      Thanks to all those who support me and bust my balls to get me out there-- you know who you are. It's bittersweet knocking Billy out of #10, but unfortunately I had to do it in order to get where I wanna be.

      Nice Mark! I'll probably run mine next year....I have some small kinks to iron out first, and the ABA is really the priority at this point.

      Mark, congrats on the new PB and knocking into the list, it's been a long time coming!!

      However, it's bittersweet not having the purple car on the top 10 anymore. Hopefully, someone, someday will fix that!

      Good job Mark ! All that poking paid off. I need 4 tenths instead of a few thousandths to catch up to you, now you get to poke at me .

      Well my goal was always a mid 12 second street driven with my a2vr, and of course to keep Mark Morris on his toes . Weather was great today at show n go. Finally made my first 12 second pass with a [email protected] 1.756 60 ft. Then went out and made four straight [email protected] passes with a few 1.70 60fts, which for me is good. Then broke out in the 3rd round of races, had a 12.70 dial in, ended up going [email protected], 1.707 60ft. Not gonna complain with that, my previous best last time I was at the track was [email protected] so today was a shocker for me. I figured a 12.8-12.9 may happen with he great weather but wasn't expecting this.

      Only changes to the car was a used set of bisltein pss9's and hollowing out the 3" high flow cat. Street driven and muffled 40+ miles each way to the track today, 2370 on the scales, 93 octane pump gas, MH 22x8x13 slicks. Last pass was 2360lbs since I had burned up some gas in the tank. Everything else was the same as it always is. I can't thank Matt Ivan enough for all the help this season, and I have to thank Mark Morris for going 12.81 a few weeks ago and really lighting that candle under my ass .
