Yes l smoked my friends 08 Audi A6 Quatro 6 cyl stock twin turbo the other day w my 87 mpi quest. He is determined now to finish his 88 blue conquest that has been collecting dust for 10 years plus.lol
I guess that's all it took to get him off his rear and start working it.

Lol  there is a mean mid 90s mustang gt running around my area.For sure has twin turbo 4.6 maybe 5.0 didn't get chance to meet him yet. That stang sounds mean as hell though. Not sure if l wanna mess w that guy lol. I think his car is spooling at idle and it sounds like he is idling at 2000 rpms.

Probably cause most of these cars aren't running.

The sad truth I guess. But! There are some nasty MPI cars not checking in I imagine. When I first first got on the boards back in 1999 300 was the benchmark. Not TB cars doing that regularly and MPI reg over the 400 mark. I have had 6 starquest and still counting. 2 now one mpi one TB. Iím addicted.

I can't speak for anyone else but for me I never post in there because its just a situation that happens, I enjoy it, and then go about my day. I don't personally feel the need to post about it.

1987 Flatty Starion -- Widebody Conversion -- V-Mount Setup --  JDL Tubular Manifold  --  MX-6 Intake -- MS3-Pro -- AEM FPR  --  ARP head studs -- 3" hood exit exhaust -- Hahn Racecraft 16g --  Tial F38 Wastegate -- Tial Q Bov -- Short route piping -- 5 lug & LSD conversion -- Tubular Front End -- Manual Steering Rack Conversion -- Manual Brake Conversion -- Stack Digital Dash -- AEM UEGO -- D2 coilovers -- full GNT poly bushings & mounts -- four 8" rears -- car lightened significantly...  More to come!

Well knew it would happen soon enough tranny and clutch are about to call it quits. The torque thatís being generated is abit much I presume. Gonna pull it down and inspect. Shoot the drivetrain and blew the tires off this last cool evening at 25psi . Yes itís sick with torque lol. Love this V8 torque in a 4cyl haha.

so your kickin mule has started to obliterate the cart behind it. Not a bad problem to have. The mule is still alive :lol:

forums r dead all over. When SQclub was buzzing waaayyyy back (from the old format), there were tonnnsss of stories
Lots of members documented combos in detail, with their street battles, 1/4 mile ET and dyno runs....
This pretty much defined G54 capabilities
