A few friends and I were hanging out and decided that since I'am only on 9psi right now this is the only chance the srt-4 would have at actually beating me. So my friend and I decide to go run. We start from a second gear roll at about 30mph ( bad mph for the se-r). three honks and we hit it. His turbo spooled first and he got about a bumper jump on me. My turbo spooled and my front tires broke loose for a few seconds but we are still in the same position with me slowly pulling up. He shifts to third first and I take the lead continuing to pull. His front bumper is now at the back of my front fender. I shift to third and he gains a little ground. I am still pulling though so he is still falling back slowly. He shifts to forth and by now hes about to my rear fender. I shift to forth and continue to pull. When we hit the 95-100mph mark i just started pulling pretty hard. We both shut it down about the 120mph mark with me about 1-1.5 cars ahead. It was a fun run and close like I thought it would be. it is obvious that my car is still faster at the moment. I am pleased for only 9psi. the srt-4 runs 15psi on intial spool and ends up bleeding down to about 12psi at redline. He declined another race in a few weeks when I will be at my goal for this setup...15psi :cool:

just for shits and giggles here is his car next to mine...

Car & driver had a best of 13.8 with a 0-60 of 5.4. The rest of the mags had an average of 13.9. I am sure after 10K+ your times are going to get better also. They were underrated from the factory. Sport compact & some others Dyno'd them at the front wheels with 223HP. Thats more than they rate at the crank. By the way......very nice kill. Thats a bad mutha. I also like that new spec-v SE-R.

I do like the srt-4's, have yet to see one at my local track but they do look pretty cool as far as sport compacts go.
