    Thumbs up WS6 vs. Supra TT

    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 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 , and to the driver he was totally cool guy

    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.

    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

    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

    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

    oh yeah what was i thinking

    even though he can afford to buy a supra TT and lives at home he's gotta make sure to save $20 here and there so he can afford gas money
