I'm stopped at a light this morning coming to work next to this guy on a Harley. The light goes green, and I'm getting on it a bit, and I guess he must have heard my 3" open exhaust, cus I see him pin the throttle. He's probably thinking whats this guy think he's got a race Wrangler or something? Hahaha So naturally, I nail it. By 80mph I had about 6-7 car lengths on him, and he was backing off. It was a full dresser... probably a 15 sec. bike at best. Not to noteworthy of a kill, just thought it was funny. That guys probably thinking 've got to take this thing in for a tune up if I can't even outrun a Wrangler! :p

I wish I would have been in the Jeep Sunday, when the old man dusted my Hemi with his Oldsmobile. :bang head

Thanks BIG PSI, I see you live in my neck of the woods. I work in Toledo, OH.
The only track numbers I have for the Jeep is when I went to Milan to get a baseline run when it was stock. It ran a blistering 18.50 @70mph! LOL
I have not been back yet, but I am planning on going this summer sometime. I did borrow a friends g-tech meter back last year, and it ran a 14.80 @ 98mph on 13-14psi of boost. Since then I've added the alky injection and another 4psi of boost. Perhaps I can get it into the low 14's at the strip now??? (maybe I'll even get lucky and break into the 13's :D )

Either way, I've knocked about 4 seconds off it's et in stock form! Not too shabby.

I had a similar encounter the other day going to work. Dude on a Harley to the left of me at a red light. Of course he is sitting there revving the bike putting that gawd awful noise right in my ear. Light turns green and he gets on it pretty hard. Well I will have no more of this and half way through second I nail it. This time my side dump 3" exhaust is screaming in his ear, my tires break loose and the car starts to drift a little towards his lane. I jump off the throttle, car settles back down and I go about my business. Dude then would not come within 100 feet of me. At the next red red light, he pulled behind me.

i've ran a few harleys.. one that my co-worker has and another that was obviously built or swapped. I can pull pretty easy on the stock one from a rolls but he will launch the heck out of me from a stop! The other bike just plain pulled on me hard! He was lughing at the light after we went from a roll and he said "you wanna run from the light?" I was like "Heck no i'll just spin!" he says "I'll let you take off first!" It didnt even matter.. he short shifted to second and pulled even, then thru 2nd-3rd pulled an easy 5-7 cars on me. I just laughed.. that thing was QUICK!
