I don't think you will be able to take him without the nitrous. A head/cam/intake foxbody is capable of around mid 12's all motor. I think his biggest issue will be traction.

Does it lope or idle rough? I doubt many people would build a motor without replacing the stock cam. This guy bought it this way right? He probably isn't 100% on what's done to it anyway

Well it's kinda hard to say but generally yes. I have a feeling that the car in the video is prolly set up alot nicer than your buddy's. If this guy really does have edelbrock heads intake exhaust and a cam then yes it should sound "something" like that. Just race the guy and find out. This isn't pinks you don't have to bet $500 on the race.

you need the bottle and you need to get the "feel" of it first you like me a short while ago has never used nitrous before you need to get it in your car and feel it before you need to depend on it to win you $500 so fill the damn bottle and we'll put it in your car tomorrow

theres no way i would race for 500 dollars anyway......i say if you even consider that you got the money to blow so have fun......and you have to tell us what happens even if you lose

i would do the race but instead of $500.... i would do maybe a full tank of gas or somthin... $500 bucks is a lot for a car you really dont know much about

everybody always seems to focus on engine upgrades. does anybody ever concider suspension? you take your mild f303 cam and give me a good set of lower control arms and let's see what a difference the 60' time will make to the race.
