    This time a 84ish V6 Camaro wasted me from a stoplight. He pulled into a Mickeydees and we chatted for awhile. This insanity has to stop.
    What can I do?

    Turbo swap. I don't even bother to race people at this point for that exact reason.

    In my neck of the woods finding a 2.3T is a needle in a haystack.
    There has got to be something to spice this turd up.
    I really do believe I have the slowest car in the 1/4 mile that exists :( That hurts

    How about a turbo 5.0 :shrug:

    Throw some forged internals in the 2.3 and run a nice big shot of nitrous....

    :lol: I'm with Stinger on that one.

    If it was me I would start with the basic stuff for right now like exhaust and a CAI. (use a Ranger tube header) Once that is done then I would check into nitrous. I would try asking Buff or Mr Woodster since they seem to run nitrous a lot through there 2.3s.

    Lets get this started, if you are really serious about wanting to go fast.

    `1: put your location in the "location" box in your profile, also state it here.
    `2: What kind of money are you looking at spending?
    `3: State the model, milage, condition of your car
    `4: What kind of mechanical skills do you posess? (also tools)
    `5: Is your car a daily driver? (i.e how long can it be down)
    `6: never use Nawz seriously, becuase no one will take you serious!
    A: useage such as "naaaaaaaaaaaaaaaassssszzz" is perfectly ok,due do
    to it acting as a insult to the F&F crowd.

    Answer these questions, we will be able to better assist you in helping to keep chevys in there place (last). :)


    ps: non-F&F hotrod'rs refer to it as Nitrous, n2o, or by the brand name of the kit . Example : NX (nitrous exspress) , Nw (nitrousworks), Zex, NOS ( Nitrous oxide systems). Welcome to the club of knowledge.

    --------- Useage in sentance structure---------

    *Generic*
    " Hey guys, my car is slower than a one legged mule, what kind of nitrous kit do you recomend?"

    *Specific*
    "Hey guys, that Wet Nitrous Works kit helped out alot, i just out ran a z06!"

    *Humor*
    "Ricers bow down to me, i have naaaaawwwzz + stickers on my car!"
