A lot of it has to do with track prep, as well as atmospheric conditions at the time of the race. Plus, with all of the mods listed when I did that run, there was no tuning done. In other words, our computers reference a Volumetric Efficiency table for a specific throttle angle and engine rpm to determine load and proper fueling. An intake is great, but increasing the VE capability without changing the figures in the computer will net you next to nothing but a nice view under the hood. Also, I have even more mods and a bored motor and ran last friday a best of 18.8 @ 71mph, which I can lend to the intake air temps of 147 degrees. Hot air = no power.

Ill take the 2.2 all day as long as i dont need to race,tow or do any other truck stuff.
Like lift it and load the back up. Its was the first motor not to over heat on me. Very reliable
And fuel effecient. Easy to work compared to a v6.
If you want a stock dd 2.2l all the way.
Wana try and make it fast? At best, it will just not be slow!

I got 13.6 sec out of a 1995 325i with a diet(2200pnds), intake, exuast ,chip
Thats just a quick car.

A turbo kit or nitrous ill touch 12s. That is fast
More n more 400hp-600hp cars are released everyday.
Cars doin 240-275 mph
Being fast these days is a real challenge!
Whats the point of straping a big turbo to to
Your truck if a v6 camery will still beat you?
?

You are an idiot and have no clue what you are talking about, and that line in bold points that out. I have beaten V8 Silverados that are fully decked out N/A (exhaust, chip, CAI etc). No need in me discussing it any further.

I've touched on high 13's nearly 5000 feet above sea level when I was running my smaller turbo. With the larger turbo and being unable to brake boost off the line due to overwheling the drum brakes, I ran a 14 flat at 106 with a dead asleep 3.0 60'.
Now with disk on the rear I can brake boost to around 3500 rpm. I just need time and new wheels to clear the brakes and mount my slicks.
my s10 also scales around 3200lbs with me in it. In retrospect your bmw looks pretty slow to my s-10...

How or who did you have plumb up the system? Was curious about spooling the 2.2 but didn't know if it was worth it cost wise.

cost is all in the perception, is it worth restoring an old classic spending 50+ grand on it? To some yes, to others no.

Hey CS, I love your truck, but I gotta throw this tech point out there. When it comes to disc v. drum brakes, disc brakes are obviously better at dissipating heat and stopping from speed. However, properly adjusted drum brakes are better at "clamping" an already stopped vehicle on the starting line because of the much larger contact area. With NHRA class cars, we used to "downgrade" the front brakes on 1970-ish Camaros, Novas, Chevelles, etc - from disc to drum in order to hold at the line more easily. You still see lots of drum downgrades in stock Eliminator classes, but SuperStock has a lot of transbrakes now, so it's moot.
