Thats a great time for N/A...
You wont have much chance over a tuned and modded F6... They can have power well over 1000rwkw...
Thanks for your opinion, if I wanted to compete with a Turbo Barra I'd build an engine to do so. This is a daily driver and a bit of fun.
A turbo barra would have no chance over my 7sec GXP but they're not competing against me in Super Stock so the comparison, like yours is useless.
Interested to know why your F6 Barra isn't well over 1000rwkw? Why stop at 479?
I was replying to Wogachino , as he mentioned being up against an F6
So really didn't need replies from other members
If I didn't quote you I wasnt conversing with you .
But looks like I pressed a few buttons.
No, just wondered why...if it's so easy, why did you stop at 479rwkw? I actually think it's difficult to make big numbers, reliably. Hence why I stopped at 322rwkw, for now. I've not seen big numbers in Barra 6 motors, still driven daily.
Its off topic but I will reply. A barra needs forged pistons and rods to be reliable over 500rwkw. So one of my factory engines (BA F6) is stock, so 479 is fine for now. 600 700 800 rwkw can be still driven easily as a daily.
If you watch the youtube clip in my sig it shows my BF F6 which is fully built and capable of BIG rwkw. BUT even 500 is crazy on the street. NO GRIP. Boost just turns the tyres.
PS - I have driven a few supercharged VFs with 350 - 420rwkw and they are fantastic with instant throttle response.
I think you better start running 6s. 7s arnt quick enough...
Well that's scary, because my next mod is FI and with that 500rwkw.....maybe too much? Certainly enough to get the job done.
Demonrates GMVPSS's point doesn't it? I.e that your post about a 1000rwkw barra is moot.
It's certainly not the point of this thread is it?
^^^ She's smoking (in more than one way).
Exactly. That's what this thread is about. VF LS3, L98, L77, LFX 1/4 mile times.
The Barra powered drag car you posted is amazing. But, it's irrelevant to the topic.
Remove the turbo from a Barra and it becomes a boat anchor...
What, like a N/A VF V8.. I drive one and its far from impressive...
Add a turbo, or 2.
Take your Barra to the Ford forum. We're not interested.
Hey, I never started it, but wont mention it again...
Imagine this theme park..?!
Actually, no thanks
