I'm going to make this review short and to the point.  Chris Carbee is the fucking man!  My car ran a 189.71 in the half mile at Heaven's Landing in Clayton, Georgia.  This airport is at 3300 some odd feet above sea level. 

 

I have a simple setup with a 3.8L motor, cams, valve springs and retainers.  No porting on the heads.  I'm running AAM GT900-R turbos.  To my knowledge this is the fastest trap by 3 mph these turbos have ever ran.  We left the airstrip because it was getting late and Chris had to leave for Jacksonville straight from the event.  We ended up leaving some mph on the table.

 

Originally I was not going to post up anything because I wanted to keep it to myself however Chris more than earned all the props I could give him.  We're going to work on some traction and hit the Ocala, FL wannagofast event in Jan.

 

My car was not running my AMS carbon seats.  I had both stock seats in the car.  There was also a lot of crap in the trunk.

 

Thanks again Chris for all that you did.

~190mph is smoking!

 

I'm disappointed not to see Waffle House listed in the tags. It deserves at least some credit.

I think 191 might have been doable if I had more time, and was able to make a pass in the right lane.  Cool-down time was limited towards the end, so even if we were able to allow the car to sit more, it could have touched it.

 

Congrats!

Thanks David, it was good chatting with you as well!

I promise u if we had more time and Chris had touched even 190 we'd still be there tweaking.

+1 for Carbee. He enjoys being a comprehensive tuner and he's a nice person to be around. Now if I can get an E85 station near me, I might take his advice :-)

I couldn't agree more, having the car perform is great.  However, the friendship I've gained during this process makes it all the better.
