This actually happened about 2 weeks ago but since there was some slight debate to how quick the WS6 was on the other thread i thought I would post this.

So I was on my way to work down Barlow Trail North when I spot the HUGE Ram Air Hood, and immediatley knew it was a WS6, so I change lanes so that he can get right beside me and he actually just passes by and then changes lanes so that he is in front of me, thats when I saw thw WS6 badge :clap: which confirmed my original observation.

Well the light at i think 71st Ave SE turns Red and I wanted to get beside him for the light but there was a car in the left lane already so I had to stay behind the WS6.
Anyways I had no idea if this guy wanted to go or not so just incase I turn off the TRACTION control and dial up the greddy Profec B to hgih boost setting, light turns green and he eases into the throttle as do I, then he just punches it, immediatley i am 3 car lengths back considering he started already 1 car length in front of me.
I WOT the Supra and hit 1.2 bar immediatley on the boost guage, Rip her into second gear and still no gains the WS6 is still 3 car lenghts in front of me, i hit 3rd gear and I pull a little bit on the WS6 maybe 1/2 a car, we hit 4th and he just kept goign as did I and the Supra was pulling harder now, probably another 3/4 car or 1 car length, after that I shut her down and we coasted to the next light where I was able to get beside him and have a chat.

I ask" "What you got done?"
he replies "Still stock"
I answer "Damn quick car for stock, nice race!"
He retorts "thanks, my buddy used to own a Supra, those thigns are really fast once you start modding, what you got done?"
I simply say "Exhaust, K&N, and some other stuff, how do you fair against C5's?"
He says "Have taken down a couple C5's, they aren't that much faster"


We gave each thumbs and went our seperate ways, I give props to the WS6, that thing is sooo quick:eek: , and to the driver he was totally cool guy:thumbsup:

My mods are:
K&N Drop in filter
RMM Downpipe
Greddy Evo Catback
HKS SSQV Blow-off Valve
Greddy Profec B

im surprised he pulled on you, with just the boltons you have, gives you some substantial power gains. im really surprised that your bpu supra didnt walk all over that ws6

Hey Redlyne_mr2

Ya I was a little surprised too but, you got to remember he went before I did, it's hard to catch a car liek the WS6 when hets the jump first and your playing catch up the rest of the way, from a dead gig I am pretty sure, but could be wrong that I should be able to take the WS6 without problems.. He may not have been stock, could had a K&N or chip something.. not sure but still a quick car either way

I haven't had the chance to take the Supra out to the 1/4 yet i plan on getting it out before the snow comes in.:thumbsup:

ya i missed how he got the jump on you...you need a hell of alot of power and torque to reel in one of those cars in...screw anymore of those little bolt ons and start saving for a turbo:thumbsup:

Ya,
We got MAD plans for the Surpa over winter, it'll be VERY different when Spring rolls around. I won't tell you what were doing exactly but just be prepared for something scary!

yes same engine/hp/tq and all of the drivetrain is the same..the cars even weigh the same..but when tested the camaro ss did 0-60 in 5.2 while the ws6 ram air did 5.0, even the pros dont know why..or so they say..maybe its that huge ram air hood feeding that engine more air:D

i raced one few weeks back... a black colored ram air.... from a roll in first... he jumped me by about half of a car between us, then i will pull by him in top of 3rd and 4th - not hard but walking away... i shut it down after passing him and he pulled in behind me then smoked the divider in front of south center audi dealership? before silver hill acura....ouch!:dunno:

your ET - 14.2 is just about traction, you have to look at the [email protected] xxx.mph....is what your car will put down for HP.

101.33mph thats about what those ram air will run stock

i think it had something done, i posted this before and everyone thought i was lieing... but i raced a WS6 on deerfoot and off the lights...
deerfoot was DEAD even... didnt move an inch either way
off line line he pulled on me a bit by the end of 3rd..

bad driver... fake WS6 badge.. woo knows... but he told me it was over 300 hp and was amazed i stuck with him...
was a really nice guy... was a red one..

How much faster is a WS6 than a SS? I smoked out a SS before but never had a chance to step up to a WS6. Thats also before my turbo blew so I don't know how I would do now.

Peace

I think you guys should chill out a little bit, there's nothing wrong with used parts... sometimes used parts is all you can get if certain products are on a big back order or discontinued.

Anyways I did email Mau and he's a really helpful guy, and hopefully he'll help me out with my Supra when I go single.

Note that a K&N will give quite good gains in a ram air car. If you drop one in a regular car it usually won't do shit cause the airbox is too restrictive but with ram air, the K&N shows that it does in fact have much more airflow than a stock filter.
