Ok everyone state car and if you want engine mods if any done. and for those that don't know im talking bout upshifting not downshifting to that gear i mean shifting into that gear do you get tire spin or any chrip.

1988 325(Super Eta)
K&N filter high performance spark plugs and wires
2nd- Tire Spin
3rd- Slight chrip
4th- Did it once but could have just been all the dirt on street

First will spin indefinitely, as will second and third if I'm purposely laying rubber 4th, 5th and 6th, dunno, never wanted that much smoke.
As for power shifting, well, chirp every gear up through fourth, but no spin. The posi makes it hard to get anythnig but a chirp, cause the car lurches forward instead of spinning. 5th and 6th are too high (80mph = 1800 rpm in 6th) to really do antyhing, and I don't think I've ever actually used them for anything but cruising around.


275/40/17's and 350 ft/lb under 3200RPM = hard to keep straight. Eats through tires liek there's no tommorow. I bought two new Ecsta 712's for the rear like three weeks ago, and the bastards are already getting visibly worn down.

lol thx, but I definitely have the ass-end of the corvette stick. After about 1975, hp ratings plummeted, as gov't smog mandates rose. The days of the 550hp ZL-1s were over, and some of the late eighties C3's had as low as 185 horses (althought it was with accessories due to a newer rating system, so the comparison isn't direct). In '84 when the C4 debuted, the first motor was a major slug. With crosfire injection, and the vulnerable DN 4+3 tranny, they managed about 205 ponies. The very next year, the L98 came out, and with the new Bosch "Tuned Port Injection" that number went up a bunch, making about 235hp, and more importantly something like 340tq at a very low RPM. It then kept going up, with additions of aluminum heads, higher comperssion, etc through the years, epitomizing in what I have, producing 245hp/350tq. The new ZF (built in west germany) 6 speed was also introduced to replace the DN4+3. It was a burly mofo, and handles up to, and sometimes over 650ft/lb without any modifications. I have never heard of anyone breaking it through hard launches, supercharging, etc. More to the point - same year as mine, you could have had an LT5 - a DOHC, 8000RPM 475hp monster. No wonder nobody gives a shit about the L98

In '92 however, the LT1 (same 350 block with better heads+cam, and a very sketchy ignition system) came out as the base motor, making 300hp, then the LT4 which was rated at 330 but made closer to 340 AT THE WHEELS (under rated because the LS1 was supposed to have 350hp).. Then the C5 came out, with the LS1, and you guys know the rest of the story I'm sure. So in short, I wouldn't say I have the worst of them, but it's definitely not the best of what C4's had to offer

But man oh man, those LT5s are freakin awesome if you're content with leaving it stock. There's no aftermarket for it, since it was so different then the rest, but it doesn't really need it...

Oh forgot to throw in the B2k's - twin intercooled turbo calloway models. Basically a low compression L98 as per mine, but boosted.. Forgot what the hell they made, but it was over 400 in one of the years...

Worst car was my grandfather's old Challenger Hemi. That fucker could break traction from a stop in all four forward gears.

The supra could chirp to fourth and scratch down hard in the 1-2 and 2-3 shifts

Why is your car "RIP"? Sorry, I never post here, and I guess I missed something?

Either way, sorry to hear that.. Since supra was in past tense, I take it that's NOT your new whip?

I could melt the tires in my 240SX in first, and chirp them into second with 160 thousand miles on the stock engine.

Man, of course it's low, America got the watered-down version with a N/A truck engine.

And I'm fairly sure he's got the KA24DE in his car, and it packs a peppy 155 horsepower. Not bad for 13 year old car that weighs about 2800 lbs.

Incredible platform.

Meh. My comment was inappropriate -- that's why I deleted it.

I wouldn't expect much love for Chevrolets on a BMW forum. Hell, they hate my ass, and I own a BMW.
