Dad and I were driving back to his house in LA (he came by to drop off some stuff at my house in Northridge, and we went to his place to do our bi-weekly bike ride) and talking on our radios. He wanted to know how much faster my Mule was after the boost modifications (turning up the APC to max boost and raising the fuel cutoff point to 1.5PSI) So we started at 65mph in 3rd gear and just punched it. He took off ahead initially, cuz his water cooled ball bearing turbo spools much faster than my old oil bearing turbo, but once I reached full boost, I took off like a rocket and caught him by about 90mph. I asked him if he wanted to call it quits or keep goin and he said keep goin. By 105MPH, I was passing him by a half a car length, and we took it up to just a hair over 135 before he chickened out ( I only had 5 or maybe 10mph before the rev limiter anyway) and I was a full carlength on him.

His Viggen is stock, he wouldn't let me touch it, but now, he's having second thoughts about it. :lol:
