I had to embed that! Sweet video. That looks like so much fun!

You have anything done with your exhaust? Just watched your other video, that is a great idle, so what did you do?

Otherwise I just don't take my 2.8 to the limit enough to hear those sweet RPMs.

Oh, and I'm curious as to what were the rules for that run?

I did caught up to the Z06, the Mustang Mach I and the WRX. But before that I had to pass the blue TSX that was holding me, then a Type R Integra and a M3. It was a lot of fun. I got so much compliments from people, specially the young ones.

Is that what the silver hatch was that passed ya, I thought it looked WRXish... Hey man just being able to hang with those cars in a 25+ year old economy sportscar is pretty damn cool says I. Nice work. What have you done to the motor and suspension and whatnot? Peace

Rules are only passing on straights when prompted by the driver in front. That is why I waved the WRX by, it has way more hp than my 2.8 and it had racing slicks, so the Corvette. The Mach I had racing DOT. Even though they had slicks I was all over their mirrors through the turns, it was hilarious!!

Woah wait a minute.... Did you say CNC ported 2.8 heads???? MORE INFO PLEASE.... DO you have a five axis machine at your disposal? I am soon to be the owner of a nice used VMC but that CNC head porting is serious stuff. You either need a five axis or a fourth axis and a trunnion table to really do it and even then you gotta have some serious cad cam skills and know your way around some VERY expensive software.... Don't hold out on us man, what's the skinny... What kinda power are ya making? peace

BH Performance did my heads. This guy speaks flow. The ones he did for me outflowed Oslo's Falconer heads at the intake and specially on the exhaust side. We are working on a specific head for the 3.4.

Cool video! Nice Fiero, too.

Just out of curiosity, what racing class are you in? Since you still have the dash and stuff, I'm guessing a Street Prepped category? My Fiero gets tossed in Street Mod, because it has an engine swap (3.4 V6).

Thanks Blacktree! It is only HPDE2 sanctioned by NASA. I'm just doing track time to get used to the car and advance to HPDE3 so I can compete in the time trial races.

I also found this video from another competitor. You start to see me in front of the M3 that is in front of the camera car. I just re-entered the track after finding the limit of adhesion of the street tires. I locked the fronts and since I knew I wasn't going to be able to recover and make that turn I released some pressure and slowed the car enough to slowly coast on the grass, turn and go back on the track and that is where the video begins. The rule is that if you put all 4 wheels off the track you must come into the pits for a check up by the marshals. Well, that happened 2 turns before the pit entrance and I just kept going because my adrenaline was so high and this is why. After hounding an "Eleonor" clone with twin turbos for 3 laps, he lets me by because I was riding on his bumper on the braking zone and through the turns, on the straights it was a different story. I just wanted to widen the gap through the tight section before the back stretch so I can have enough lead to prevent him from getting too close to me that I had to wave him by. This off excursion took place while trying to do that. I re-entered and started to chase him down again but then I see a black flag on the back stretch with my number on it 3 turns before the pit entrance. I start to slow down and then proceeded to enter the pits.
